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.

In case you need a reminder...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Had to remind my damn self of this as I'm in the thick of virtual school due to a positive kiddo in my daughter's class. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I think we are still going to have ups and downs with this school year as the country, varients and people figure out this ish. But I'm so grateful for plant medicine to help ease my anxiety and make it through this mess. As someone who has suffered from anxiety all my life it's important to have all the tools I need to keep my head on right. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Cannabis, meditation, nature and music/movement are always a part of my toolbox.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Self care is seldom optional. Take care of you. Here’s some of the goodies the lovely @4thhousestudios got in the mail. She knows self care is a priority and we agree! 💚💚💚

Client favs: CBD balm (so good on all those achy parts.)

CBD oil 5:1 is my favorite helps ease my anxiety without the sleepy feeling.

CBD gummies: For when I’m out the out house and need some relief. I also take 2 at bedtime and it’s lights out.😴
