Nurses Talk Cannabis And The Need for More Marijuana Education
Nurses Talk Cannabis And The Need for More Marijuana Education with Heather Manus and Sandra Guynes. As the coronavirus continues to rage throughout the United States, Paxton Quigley decided to look at some of the challenges facing the first-line healthcare providers who are giving their all during these tragic days. Some 600 health care providers in the United States have died from COVID-19 and as many as 116,000 have fallen ill. The dire shortage of medical equipment for medical workers as well as patients was, and still is, devastating. Having said all that, High Society spoke with two amazing nurses who specialize in medical cannabis and who are trying to educate their colleagues on how to integrate the plant and its endless benefits into the medical profession, clearly where it belongs.
Heather Manus, RN, originally from New Mexico, is the founder & CEO of the Cannabis Nurses Network. Nurse Heather spoke to Paxton along with Sandra Guynes, who holds a Masters of Science degree in Nursing.
Nurse Guynes is the founder of Cannabis Nurses of Color. As part of an ongoing effort to educate their colleagues, Nurse Heather and Nurse Guynes are involved in organizing the Network’s annual educational seminar, to be held virtually on Sept. 3-4, 2020. The name of the conference is “Revolution in Healthcare.” Tickets are still available to see and hear the most impressive lineup of experts.
Both Manus and Guynes tell our listeners about the important role and function of the endocannabinoid system and how their own work is cut out for them as they seek to educate other medical and health care workers in this area. They also seek to enlighten professionals, as well as the rest of us, to the scientifically proven benefits of medicinal cannabis.
Have a listen to these two impressive women and let us know what you think.
