Holistic Cannabis in the Nutrition Practice- Laura Lagano, MS, RDN, CDN Integrative Clinical Nutritionist

Medical marijuana is legal in more than half the country and adult use (formerly known as recreational use) will be available in 8 US states by 2018. As legal availability of the ancient plant continues, nutritionists are poised to become primary sources of information about therapeutic cannabis for individual patients and the public. Practical application of cannabis as a healing herb as it integrates with other holistic modalities to upregulate the endocannabinoid system for homeostasis is well-documented. Insomnia, pain, and mood disorders are the top conditions for which Cannabis is recommended by medical marijuana doctors and for which individuals self-medicate. Cachexia, seizures, digestive issues, attention deficit disorder, autism, Alzheimer’s are among many health concerns where cannabis has shown promise. Gaining expertise in cannabis will enhance the nutritionist’s skill set, expand scope of practice, and increase business. Cannabis is solidly in the wheelhouse of NANP members!
