Certified Cannacian and Wellness Coach
As a Certified Nutrition and Cannabis coach I get one of two responses when I tell people what I do for a living, its either “oh, that’s interesting” or “…is that even a career?” “Uhh…Yes. It is now!” I reply. The next question is somewhere along the lines of “Sooo, I smoke pot all day and you tell me what munchies I can eat?” I giggle, they giggle and then I explain why my job is much more than bong rips and brownies.
You see, every person has an endocannabinoid system, this system is perhaps the most important communication system within our body. Officially named the endogenous cannabinoid system, it is considered to be a major receptor pathway and assists in establishing balance throughout the body, called homeostasis. When we experience “disruptions” throughout our endocannabinoid system this is our body alerting us for help in reestablishing homeostasis. These disruptions may appear in a variety of ways, such as but not limited to insomnia, nerve pain, headaches, migraines, joint pain, inflammation, gut deterioration, anemia, hormone imbalance, chronic pain, metabolic mismanagement, emotional imbalance, memory, mood, heart rate, blood sugar regulation and much more. Recent research and numerous medical studies have confirmed the importance of supplementing this system with a daily cannabidiol product to restore balance and support mental and physical wellness.
So, how are proper nutrition and the endocannabinoid system connected? The answer is in the receptors. The endocannabinoid system is comprised of receptors, CB1 and CB2. The majority of CB2 receptors are located within the gut and throughout the immune system. That means the majority of your wellness can be regulated with a daily cannabidiol regimen and proper nutrition.
Many people believe that wellness is an unattainable way of life because they have not experienced true wellness. However, I found that with consistent endocannabinoid support and clean nutrition, the body will experience a drastic reduction in ailments and in some scenarios complete reversal of disease.
Everyday I assist clients who seek true wellness. True wellness is freedom from pain, insomnia, high blood pressure, excess weight gain, inflammation and much more. Through my own experience with a daily cannabidiol regimen and a convenient nutrition plan, I have been able to successfully free my body from over ten prescriptions, countless over the counter medications, and accelorated my weight loss to celebrate 125lbs lost. If you’re ready to experience wellness too, I’m here.
