It’s more than just medicine

In this episode, we will be discussing a one of the benefits of cannabis which gets often dismissed. Cannabis is more than just a medicine it can be a tool used to help you check in, reset and even focus. Cannabis can be a way for you to find peace. As the resident nurse here at the Kush Nurse, Sandra Guynes shares her personal journey of cannabis that it is not just medicine, it is so much more.

Cannabis can help you with that quiet your mind and the constant need to focus on to do’s and instead focus on priorities. This can prove to be a much more productive and less stressful approach to getting things done.

Cannabis can also help with more a body high if you need to settle in and feel more relaxed. While many people seek cannabis for symptom management; it can also help with creating work/life balance. Specific strains can help to with focus, motivation, endurance and yes relaxation.

In this episode, we will talk about cannabis is more than just medicine.

Hi! My name is Sandra Guynes AKA The Kush Nurse. I’ve been a registered nurse for over 16 years prior to that I worked as an EMT in NYC and then in Virginia. 👩🏽‍⚕️

Nursing for me started in the NICU and it was a beautiful experience to serve mothers and the tiniest humans. Nursing has taken me on many journeys from Maternity nursing to teaching nursing.

It’s been an honor as well as challenging navigating our complicated healthcare system but I’m grateful to be on this journey.

There are nurses watching what I am doing and I want to set the record straight...I love being a endocannabinoid nurse aka cannabis nurse! 😉 I love seeing my patients THRIVE! Once you experience wellness over illness it’s hard to go back to traditional healthcare settings.

Cannabis may seem scary, unchartered and taboo for nurses and other healthcare professionals but cannabis has been medicine since medicine been medicine. 🌱

Whether you’re in the closet or ready to shout your cannabis love from the top of the nurses station (which I do not recommend 😆)...know that we all have to process and shift when it comes to accepting cannabis as medicine. But while everyone else is thinking and rethinking get you some knowledge and share what you know.

Every nurse on this planet should understand the endocannabinoid system and how cannabis works because whether we acknowledge or not doesn’t change the fact that cannabis is being used by our patients.

Ooh and look at my cute shirt👚 from @cannabisnursingsolutions Thanks Ash! 😘

Happy Nurses Week! It’s an honor to be a nurse. All in a days work.

Someone said goodbye. Someone said hello. Someone took a breath. Someone took their last. Someone got bad news. Someone got a 2nd chance. Holding hands. Teaching. Learning. Listening. Sitting silently. All these things are a part of the journey. 👩🏽‍⚕️

Do you struggle getting to sleep or staying asleep? Let me know in the comments.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Rest is one of the most essential functions of our Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Sleep is the time when we reset our circadian rhythm which is important for energy, brain/cognitive health and keeping our body in homeostasis AKA balance.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ll be LIVE tomorrow, Tuesday at 10am on IG and FB to talk about sleep and the most common questions I get about falling and staying asleep with the help of cannabis.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
See you there.
