Frequently Asked Questions

Why would a Holistic Caring Cannabis Health Coaching

be a great business to own?

Cannabis Health Coaching will give millions who need help a pathway to wellness. That path will also pave a new tangent in your fulfilling career.  Cannabinoids may unlock the key to for health improvement even when traditional medicine has failed.  Cannabis holds the power of improving wellbeing warding off diseases of aging and progressive illness, but stigma from prohibition holds back progress. Cannabinoids have the ability to repair cell biology, sooth nerve imbalances, and boost the immune system while slowing down aging and inflammation. The general population does not know cannabis is an option. Cannabis Health Coaches bring this to life as we create the educated professionals to guide these new conversations around health & well-being.

Cannabis Health Coaching will be a great business as it dovetails with one of the largest growth industries America has ever known. Current sales data of $25 billion dollars per year is based on largely recreational users, but once federal descheduling removes cannabis from the Schedule 1 Controlled Substance Act, everyone will want to know how to use these newly available medicines. Professionals and healthcare providers who can learn the basics well enough to guide others will have secure and fascinating work for the foreseeable future. 

Holistic Caring Cannabis Health Coaching (HC CHC) is the first health coaching program focused on adding cannabis to traditional and holistic medicine run by a female nurse in the United States. Elisabeth has a passion for reducing suffering and increasing well-being and she’s done this for herself and her clients for the past 5 years. She knows cannabinoids can make the difference in finding success with an integrative treatment plan and wants others around the country to benefit too. She also knows it will bring meaningful work opportunities and financial growth to those who practice these principles, serve their patients, and benefit their communities. Because of the legal complexities surrounding medical cannabis there is heavy ignorance on medicinal uses, and stigma remains around any recreational use. Cannabis Health Coaches will be the advocates for the patients who can benefit now, while we continue to work on overturning 100 years of prohibition. 

What makes this Cannabis Health Coaching program different?

The Holistic Caring Cannabis Health Coaching certification is a tremendous business opportunity for healthcare professionals already working with clients yet seeking new opportunities in cannabis. Most other programs focus on cultivating the plant and compliance issues in selling. Holistic Caring Cannabis Health Coaching program focuses on teaching others how to use these products medicinally, integrated with holistic and lifestyle medicine. This program is for those with their own business, work in a medical practice, or corporations that will need a trained cannabis liaison as this field develops globally.  Content is delivered through online study, webinars, and group training video conferences sharing education and protocols. Dispensaries sell the products; Cannabis Health Coaches sell the guidance needed to use them safely and effectively.

The Holistic Caring Cannabis Health Coaching  program was developed and tested by a nurse who has been working directly with hundreds of patients, with her own personal success story in using this plant to wean from pharmaceuticals.  Your value differential once trained is to provide guidance the dispensaries do not. Medical patients will try healing with cannabis if accompanied by a coach to bridge the gap of knowledge needed to feel confident and supported. 

What does Holistic Caring teach about the Cannabis Industry? 

You will learn the various modes of administration available in legal states today, and how to vet the purity, consistency, safety, and benchmarks of quality of these products.  Learning the questions to ask manufacturers will help you evaluate, analyze, and synthesize this information for your clients. Reading labels, COA’s or Certificate of Analysis, and understanding CBD terms like full, broad spectrum, or isolate will be covered along with legal principles and sales practices. 

Approaching the system as a patient with all of the legal considerations and shopping best practices will be explored, along with drug testing and the workplace.  Provider considerations of licensure, standards of care around cannabis, and lack of access in health systems are addressed.  

You’ll understand the differences between Recreational & Adult Use, Medical, and how these different philosophies make it difficult to navigate and access for patients.  Governmental positions are exploiting tax revenues which range up to 35% of the purchase price.  Affordability issues will address taxes, lack of insurance coverage, and how the expense of these products make financially qualifying a pivotal discussion point.

Absolutely!  We become the sum of our education and experience, and all of you will contribute to your success.  Information about diet/nutrition, exercise, spirituality, and healthcare systems will play a role.

What is my relationship with Holistic Caring once I become a licensee coach?

All Holistic Caring Cannabis Health Coaches are independent contractors.  Licensing gives you access to the tools and information, but you set up, market and coach in a manner and frequency that best works for you. These systems are designed to support and encourage your work specifically with clients to maximize the impact of cannabis medicine on health and wellness.

Where can I be a Holistic Caring Cannabis Health Coach?

It helps to reside in a legal medical marijuana state with a regulated product supply chain. Due to legal framework differing from state to state, one will need to get deeply familiar with the rules and regulations of their state’s current MMJ system. Since this is a brand new industry, the venues of the future will need to emerge. Currently patients are poorly served at the dispensaries where the standard of care is a “budtender”. Budtenders receive basic training on cannabis compliance, and the branding and lifestyle aspects of the industry. Holistic Caring Cannabis Health Coaches can privately educate people in homes, offices, clinics, corporate sites or community venues.  The scope is endless, and you’ll be ready as opportunities present themselves.
