Cannabis Education for Health Coaches!

Are You Ready to Take Health Coaching to the Next Level?

What could be worse than having your clients ask you questions that you can’t answer! Has this happened to you? Don’t worry. These days, it’s happening to a lot of health professionals when the topic of cannabis comes up. You’re not alone.

Good health is our number 1 goal.

With 85% of American consumers ranking “being in good health” as the #1 contributor to success, according to an American Express study, it’s no wonder that health coaching is a booming business.

And with over half of the United States legalizing the use of medical marijuana, it’s no wonder why integrating holistic cannabis education into your health coaching business may be your next logical step.

In today’s market, patients and clients of all ages are researching health alternatives online. They’re hearing and seeing terms like CBD, CBN and THCa, and coming to you with serious questions about these holistic compounds, looking to you for in-depth, thoughtful answers.

As time goes on, more than likely, this trend will only increase.

Can you comfortably answer these questions?

  • “What do you think about medical marijuana to address my chronic pain?”
  • “I’ve heard that I can get relief from my Crohn’s disease using cannabis. What do suggest?
  • “I want to use edibles for my insomnia. What are my options?”
  • “Isn’t cannabis good idea for alleviating anxiety?”

Or do you, like so many health professionals, shy away from this discussion? What will it take for you to be able to confidently answer your clients and begin a personalized wellness discussion that demonstrates your understanding of the topic at hand?

1. Examine your thoughts and feelings about cannabis

Do you harbor fear or uneasiness about cannabis? Do you have cannaphobia? Can you say one way or another that you are definitively pro or con when it comes to medical marijuana?

When clients rely on you for sage advice regarding health and wellness, it’s critical that you wholeheartedly believe in the advice you’re offering.  Because your advice helps shape your clients’ holistic lifestyles, it follows that anything you suggest will more than likely have a direct impact on their health and continued happiness – happiness with themselves and with the services you provide.

To offer comprehensive holistic advice and expertise, a health coach must be both knowledgeable and comfortable with the topics discussed and recommended as a part of a lifestyle plan.

So, it makes sense that if you’re not personally comfortable with medical marijuana, you won’t be able to speak with your clients about this ancient, healing herb.

Do you lack the professional cannabis counseling expertise that would allow you to confidently discuss the medicinal properties of cannabis and how they relate to overall health and wellness?

Are you insecure discussing how integrating cannabis with other holistic modalities can help heal without the unwanted side effects of conventional medications?

If so, then educating yourself may be your first step to personal enlightenment and confidence.

2. Discuss cannabis with friends and colleagues

In some professional circles, cannabis and its application are hot topics of discussion. In other circumstances, you may be fearing coming out of the “cannabis closet” and have no idea where your colleagues or coworkers stand on the topic.

It may be that others currently in the “cannabis closet” are just like you – wanting and waiting to find someone to openly discuss integrating cannabis education into practice, but the fear of reprisal may be too great. Will you make the leap and take the chance, or is it time to expand your professional circle?

Getting to know other like-minded individuals will help empower you to ask questions and discuss the details that will make you the expert your clients expect. For example, clinicians who register for the Holistic Cannabis Academy become a part of a larger group of professionals just like them. They collectively benefit from being a part of a closed online community, where they can communicate openly about cannabis and health coaching without fear. Why not join us?

3. Decide if integrating cannabis into holistic modalities is right for your practice

As a health coach, you do what you do because you genuinely want to help others. The fact is, you also need to make a living doing what you do.

How can you enjoy a fulfilling career and earn the income you need day-to-day? The answer to building your practice may be differentiating yourself with specialized knowledge. Does your reputation as an expert currently provide you with a competitive edge?

In today’s market, patients and clients of all ages are researching health alternatives online. They’re hearing and seeing terms like CBD, THC and the endocannabinoid system. They’re coming to you with serious questions about cannabis, looking to you for in-depth, thoughtful answers.

Do you, like many, shy away from this discussion, or can you confidently answer them and begin a personalized wellness discussion that demonstrates your understanding of the topic?

Are you THAT health coach? More importantly, do you want to be THAT health coach?

See what our Health Coach students have to say!

The content has been exceptional and your faculty well versed in many areas of medical, scientific and practical use of this amazing plant. I felt it was especially challenging in the science/biological understanding, however extremely helpful and adding the graphics made it easy to digest.

I have generated a good rapport with some of the recreational shop managers with discounts for me and any clients I send there. I attended an event last night that featured 7 modalities of healing from MD’s, psychotherapists, personal trainers, RDN’s to acupuncturists. I gave them a letter of introduction with my health coaching business card and offered to work with their patients or clients using medical cannabis. That was my first venture in approaching these professionals. I plan to drop by various practices to do the same thing, as I feel it is necessary to personally reach out, putting a face to the name.

A couple of friends have used my expertise to learn how to safely incorporate cannabis into their lives. One was tearfully grateful that I shared cannabis, as it turned her marriage around and opened up a new level of understanding and communication with her husband.
