Do I need a Cannabis Nurse Consultation?
As a registered nurses we feel that everyone would benefit having a consult with a nurse who is trained in cannabinoid therapeutics. Cannabis Nursing is much more than just cannabis because we have an endocannabinoid system that is influenced by other health and wellness activities. The endocannabinoid system is the largest neuroregulatory system in our bodies and it impacts all 11 organ systems, our immune system and the neurotransmitters that provide cellular messages to the body to either do something or stop doing something.
