The practitioner training program about how to get better client results with medical cannabis, while growing your business.
The green rush has arrived with 33 states and DC with medical marijuana & over 10 with personal adult (aka: rec) use. And, what about CBD—it’s everywhere! The plant is big business for sure. That’s not all this ancient plant represents. Cannabis is leading the way for Personalized Lifestyle Medicine. Rather than a gateway drug, as once inappropriately derided, cannabis can be a gateway to health and wellness. Consumers are ready to change the health paradigm to selfcare. That’s why Laura, as an integrative practitioner and educator, co-wrote the curriculum on integrating cannabis with nutrition, aromatherapy, massage, herbal medicine, and other holistic modalities and wants you to learn about the power of cannabis.
