What is a Holistic Cannabis Practitioner?

Holistic Cannabis Practitioners are healthcare providers who have completed the Holistic Cannabis Academy's required training program, and have passed the exam, demonstrating their competency in cannabis in both practical application and education.

A Holistic Cannabis Network (HCN) division, the Holistic Cannabis Academy (HCA) is an established leader in educating holistic health professionals of medical cannabis. The HCA provides a comprehensive online training program led by experts, which have a goal of educating, and arming the health professional community with the required knowledge and training to understand the therapeutic elements of cannabis, CBD, other cannabinoids, and the endocannabinoid system with an approach that integrates:

  • Acupuncture
  • Nutrition
  • Meditation
  • Yoga
  • Aromatherapy
  • And more

As a Holistic Cannabis Practitioner, you can use your healing skills and practice when working with individuals with chronic pain, inflammation, insomnia, anxiety, and many other health issues.

You can:

  • Inform your patients and their families and caregivers of the different options available for delivery and dosage
  • Prepare individualized holistic treatment plans for each patient based on their condition
  • Educate groups about the benefits of cannabis and CBD
  • Teach patients how to make edibles and infusions
  • Integrate cannabis education into your present expertise area
  • Recommend lifestyle enhancements and changes for supporting positive changes
  • Become an advocate for patients
  • Connect with other Holistic Cannabis Practitioners to generate a practice-supporting network
  • Combine with life coaching and holistic health for maximum results

These days, breakthrough treatments are being discovered all the time. In fact, only a couple of decades ago, scientists discovered the endocannabinoid system (ECS), and how it had a synergistic relationship with many natural healing compounds in cannabis. Actually, the human body has many endocannabinoid receptors throughout the organs, brain, respiratory and digestive systems, nervous system, and immune system.

In the early 1990's, Lisa Matsuda, a researcher, announced she and her team had discovered receptors throughout the body and brain, which fit THC and other cannabinoids well. This was the ECS.

The main function of the ECS is to maintain homeostasis. Your body produces its own endocannabinoids that help regulate body functions, and the fact phytocannabinoids (CBD) can interact with these receptors indicates when there's an imbalance of these endocannabinoids, cannabis can help supplement it.

Researchers have already created amazing cannabis therapies for:

  • Cancer symptoms
  • Pain management
  • Arthritis
  • Gastrointestinal symptoms
  • Anxiety
  • Sleep disorders
  • Appetite
  • And many other ailments, disease symptoms, and psychological issues

A lot of these therapies are often more effective than pharmaceuticals, but without the harsh side effects. Cannabis has even been shown to help with opioid addiction.

Benefits of Holistic Cannabis

Frequently we overlook the powerful role cannabis has in holistic wellness. While cannabis has been used throughout history holistically, the most recent emphasis on "band-aid" medicine (practices made for "fixing" problems instead of preventing them) has turned much focus away from general whole-body wellness, in order to maintain the "live fast" attitude. However, cannabis could be used for way more than simply a "quick fix" for what's bothering you. When you combine cannabis with a holistic lifestyle, it might help prevent ailments before they start.

Holistic wellness is not so much a form of therapy, but rather more of a lifestyle. It addresses all aspects of an individual including their emotional, physical, and spiritual health, thereby promoting whole-body wellness.

The idea behind the practice of holistic wellness is that when one area of an individual suffers, the other areas get thrown off balance. For instance, prolonged work-related stress could cause inability to sleep and physical pain in some individuals. Likewise, a chronic medical condition could lead to sleep disturbances and depression. By promoting wellness in all areas of an individual's life, their body is better able to adapt or prevent unforeseen changes.
