Getting Started

Cannabis for wellness
Dried Cannabis Flower

Although cannabis has many medicinal benefits, it can also be a confusing compound to get started with. Navigating the medicinal and recreational cannabis market can be a daunting task for both the experienced and naive cannabis user.

I have been practicing patient education in cannabis therapy for over 7 years, am an international speaker on cannabis therapy and have created courses in cannabis therapy for practitioners and the general public. Having a strong understanding of how cannabis works and how to use it properly can make or break successful cannabis therapy in practically every interested patient. Some of the services I provide include:

Cannabis Education Services

Review of current products and medication

 Many patients arrive at my office having already experimented or currently experimenting with cannabis for specific health concerns or general wellness. Many of these patients are unsure as if they have purchased the ideal product for themselves and what would be ideal dosage guidelines. I offer consulting services around current cannabis therapy so that patients can feel confident about their cannabis selection, how to use it properly and what might be some possible side effects and interactions with other medications.

How to choose and use cannabis

 Whether you are new to cannabis therapy or have some experience using cannabis, professional medical advise on cannabis therapy can make the difference between success and failure. There are currently hundreds of products on the recreational and medicinal market and dozens of different ways to use them. From flower to oil, vape or gummy, ointment or cream I can help guide you to what product and method is best suited for your health goals and physiology. I will also provide education around dosages, possible side effects and interactions with other medications. A consultation will provide you with all the tools necessary to make informed decisions about your cannabis journey.

Access to Medical Cannabis

Unsure if you would like to purchase medical cannabis or recreational cannabis? Perhaps you would like to try cannabis as a therapy for a minor? I can answer all your questions about the pros and cons of purchasing cannabis with a medical license as opposed to using the recreational market. I can also facilitate the process of acquiring a medical cannabis prescription through a medical doctor or cannabis licensing clinic. I will also provide continual liaison with your cannabis prescriber to ensure that you have received a proper prescription and adequate education around the use of medical cannabis. I have worked with cannabis licensing clinics for the past 7 years making sure patients get what they need.

Booking an appointment

There is no added cost for a cannabis therapy consultation and services can still be fully or partially covered under most extended health insurance plans which include naturopathic medicine. If you have questions about cannabis therapy do yourself a favor and  Book an appointment today!
