I provide education, support and guidance to help you find relief using cannabis medicine as part of your wellness routine.
HOW CANNABIS CAN HELP YOU
Do you struggle with pain, mild anxiety, insomnia, inflammation, nausea, digestive issues, or certain other conditions? Is your medicine cabinet full of pills that have not been helpful? If so, medical cannabis could be the solution.
Cannabis is different than other medications and is often described as individualized medicine because each person responds differently to each product. In addition to THC and CBD, cannabis contains hundreds of other compounds, each with different medical effects. The challenge is finding the right strain, determining the correct dosage, and figuring out the most effective delivery method. It is a slow methodical process that takes patience and persistence.
I can work with you to identify your unique challenges and cut through the confusing information about medical cannabis. I will teach you to tune into your body, self-monitor effects, and coach you in using cannabis as a complimentary or alternative therapy to get well, feel well, and be well.

Faye walked me through every step of the process. She helped me figure out how to register for my medical card and referred me to a certifying doctor. Once I received certification, she worked with me to determine my treatment goals. She reviewed the dispensary menu with me and made a thoughtful recommendation. We worked together to determine the best dose, and it did take several tries. I have finally found relief with medical cannabis.
I went to the local dispensary and the person who helped me really didn’t get my concern and recommended something that was too strong for me. I called Faye, we had a quick consultation, and she thought the THC level was too high and ultimately she recommended the right product. I am finally getting a good night's sleep!
