My Story

I was in pain, exhausted and dragging myself through the day. My family needed me and I didn’t have the energy to show up.
I wanted to feel alive again. 

So, I took matters into my own hands.

Hello there,

My name is Sandra Guynes and I’m the resident nurse aka The Kush Nurse.

I’ve helped hundreds of women and families start their wellness journey with plant medicine and take control of their lives and health. 

I believe cannabis can change your life, transform your health and give you the control you need to live a healthier more joy filled life. 

Cannabis radically transformed my life from daily pain, physical and mental exhaustion to living a life that is healthy, full of joy and one that I can control and maintain. I truly believe cannabis can be transformative.

Are you ready to experience that change?


My mom was so impressed with your care! Thank you for doing what you do!
There was a powerful and meaningful exchange there. She’s retired but it meant a lot to to her to be speaking to someone who is also an RN who gets it…so thank you so much! – C.

Thank you so much for meeting with me yesterday and creating a safe and judgement-free space. I felt at ease after our consult.  – D.

I am damn near in tears!!! Thank you for your help. Seriously this is way better than the edible especially when I need to be productive. This is my new daytime jam. Where do I need to put the testimonial because I am telling everyone about it!! – V.
