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.

Laura Lagano, MS, RDN, CDN Integrative Clinical Nutritionist has a private practice focusing on gut, immune, adrenal, and brain health, which is all about root cause resolution. Dissatisfied with what allopathic healthcare had to offer, Laura followed the path set by Isabella, her daughter with special needs, and embarked on a learning quest that led her to myriad holistic modalities.
Observing the climate surrounding medical marijuana in the US, Laura noticed that legislators and healthcare professionals aligned cannabis with either the medical/pharmaceutical or alcohol/tobacco models. That’s akin to attempting to stuff a square peg in a round hole! She and her business partner took matters into their own hands to create an online cannabis education, training, and business-building platform for holistic-minded practitioners about integrating cannabis with other healing modalities to upregulate the endocannabinoid system.
As co-founder of the Holistic Cannabis Academy (HCA), Laura has continued her commitment to progressive therapies for health and healing. HCA offers a certificate of training as a Holistic Cannabis Practitioner plus curated cannabis packages to fit the need of every learner.
