Get ready to transform your cannabis career with a little help from your friends at the Holistic Cannabis Academy + Women Grow!

As cornerstone members of Women Grow – dedicated to creating an inclusive + fair cannabis industry – we’re excited to present, with two of our esteemed Holistic Cannabis Academy faculty, Holistic Blueprint for Women’s Heath: Cannabis, Nutrition + Aromatherapy on February 3 at the Curtis Hotel in Denver, Colorado. You’ll get the insights you need to successfully integrate cannabis into lifestyle for optimal women’s health. Reach and connect with health advocates who are on the frontlines, providing the end-consumer with cannabis education + advice.

The Holistic Cannabis Academy All-Star Panel Speaks Out!

Seldom do you find holistic health experts who also know cannabis therapeutics. But that’s exactly what we’ll deliver with this panel. Our content will provide direction for your personal health journey + practical insights for integrating into your cannabis business.

Donna Shields, Culinary Nutritionist

Holistic Cannabis Academy (HCA) co-founder Donna Shields, MS, RDN will chair the panel, guiding attendees about the importance of integrating cannabis into lifestyle and wellness. Most states take two views of cannabis – the pharma model, which only allows recommending cannabis when a patient has a diagnosis and is ill, often very ill. The other model lumps cannabis with alcohol, tobacco, and firearms because, well, that’s convenient for legislators + state economics. Wait, there’s another option – the plant-based medicine model!

Laura Lagano, Clinical Nutritionist

Rather than fitting a square peg into a round hole (ie: pharma + alcohol models), HCA co-founder Laura Lagano, MS, RDN, CDN sees cannabis as a healing plant, placing it solidly in the toolbox of all holistic-minded health practitioners for both disease treatment + health promotion. As an integrative clinical nutritionist practicing functional medicine, which is all about root-cause resolution, Laura will introduce you to how the effects of cannabis are impacted by food, nutrition + biochemistry. You will certainly look at what you eat with a different lens after meeting Laura!

Michele Ross, Neuroscientist

HCA faculty member and neuroscientist Michele Ross, PhD of IMAPCT Network will enlighten us about the role of cannabis for women’s health as it relates to mood + feminine energy. Imagine girl power combined with the power of an ancient female, healing plant!

Jessica Baker, Herbalist

Jessica Baker, LAc, RH will lend her expertise on the subject of aromatherapy, reminding us that cannabis is an herb with essential oils (aka: terpenes) such as beta-caryophyllene, pinene + linolool. Terpenes are integral to the medicinal benefits of cannabis, particularly integrated with nutrition + other lifestyle choices.
