Certificate Program for Herbalists and wholistic practitioners wanting to educate their clients on the safe use of cannabis medicine.
Cannabis is a powerful and effective plant medicine and more than 70 years of prohibition has not stopped people from utilizing it. As legalization in Canada is implemented, Herbalists and other wholistic healthcare practitioners are being asked to provide education on how to best use Cannabis in their health care.
This program is suitable for Herbalists, Nutritionists, Nurses, Naturopathic Doctors, TCM Doctors, and anyone contemplating the use of or giving advice on the use of Cannabis as medicine.

Jeananne is co-founder of Lodgepole School, President of the Alberta Herbalists Association and an Alberta representative for the Canadian Council of Herbalists Association. Jeananne’s interest in Cannabis as medicine began many years ago when she discovered that taking a small amount of marijuana prior to a public speaking project in high school took away debilitating anxiety and allowed her to actually enjoy the task, rather than being paralyzed with fear. With the recent change in Canadian laws, Jeananne has been able to turn her herbal attention to teaching about the healing benefits of cannabis. Jeananne spends a good portion of her time as a Cannabis Educator at Harvest Medicine in Calgary.
