The Empowered Spirit Show

Aug 8, 2018

Welcome back to our educational summer series on The Empowered Spirit Show!

We’ve been going through so many shifts with the cosmos; we just went through a full moon eclipse, which we talk about on my Energy Focus for the Week. With so much stress in the world, finding tools and techniques to relax and be aware of our energy is so important. If you are in need of help or guidance, reach out. Download my free guide to help you set up your own Spiritual Practice. If you would prefer some private mentoring, join me in my Empowered Spirit Program

Schedule an Empowered Spirit Discovery Session with me and let’s discover if this program is right for you.

In this Summer Series on the Empowered Spirit Show, we are exploring the Mind, Body, and Spiritual World of CBD Oils.

We’ve been exploring questions like…What are CBDs? What do they do? How can they help? Will they get me high? How do they work in the body? How can they help spiritually? What are the benefits? Where can you get them?

In today’s episode we’ll be talking about education of the cannabis, discussing the top three reasons people are turning to this plant medicine, and even opening up to the full cannabis family as we begin to talk a little bit about the marijuana aspect of cannabis. 

•   4:00 - My guest is Laura Lagano, founder of the Holistic Cannabis Academy

Integrative clinical nutritionist Laura Lagano 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.

Cannabis can help to connect to your higher self. It can help you to ground in your energy to be able to hear what your spirit is offering.

Cannabis can help you to connect to other people as well.

It can give you roots and wings to open up to new experiences in your life.

You need both. 

Think about it. Roots are our first chakra. And the wings are our crown and beyond.  This beautiful plant medicine is helping us to expand our energy system and to ground with mother earth as you tap into the “high”er dimension.

So reach out if you struggle with any of those reasons we talked about: the anxiety, the pain or the sleep issues.

These are plant supplements, so always checking with your health care provider is important. I know that this is going to present a challenge, but if we don’t speak up, it won’t go anywhere.

Look for some classes at the studio this fall and check out The Holistic Cannabis Academy for more information.

To your Spirit,
