Season Two Wrap Up

On The Kush Nurse Season 2, we had a chance to speak to cannabis nurses working in the industry. Covid-19 and the pandemic made it clear; cannabis is essential medicine. We have even prioritized cannabis workers to access vaccinations before teachers. 

From talking to kids about cannabis to navigating your own child as a cannabis patient this season helps us see how cannabis has become an integral part of healthcare. No matter the need or condition, cannabis remains a privileged medicine accessible by few and highly ignored by many healthcare providers. 

Patients still struggle with employment protections as medical cannabis patients. Many may lose employment for choosing cannabis as medicine. We need significant education in our government and healthcare systems to continue to see forward momentum. 

We learned of the challenges many healthcare providers, nurses especially, face when choosing a career in cannabis. From advocacy to transforming patient’s health; nurses are changing and paving the way for cannabis care.

The challenges and federal laws continue to create barriers for cannabis to be accessible, affordable and even an option discussed by providers but we’ve seen great strides with the state by state legalization. Will federal legislation be in our near future? We’ll be back next season and hopeful for policy changes to benefit all. 

Next season we’ll talk with cannabis patients and hear their stories of how cannabis has helped changed their health and the challenges of choosing plant medicine.

It’s been a long time. I shouldn’t left you without a dope rhyme to step to… 🎶🎧

But I’m back… doing the work isn’t just about helping others it’s filling my vessel first. I have had some amazing adventures these past few weeks and settling into my role at Pacific College. It’s a privilege, this I know and give thanks for daily to teach Cannabis Medicine at a college. It’s humbling to show up for the first time as your whole self in a traditional setting.

Today I am grateful for this journey and committed to filling this vessel first so I can keep doing this incredible work.

Today’s walk was all about clarity and peace thanks to @nursegrown_vermontcannanurse hemp flower “Suver Haze” 🌞🌞 Just a nice, chill vibe.

Healthy consumption methods matter and my @davincivaporizer never fails me.
