Episode117: Cannabis As Medicine with Pharmacist Christine Arseneau

Journeying through the land of chronic pain and chronic illness often includes an unfathomable amount of prescription medications. It is often one of the few solutions offered for chronic conditions within western medicine. Those prescription drugs consistently bring with them toxins and unwanted side effects.

Long before any of us were around, Mother Nature began providing her own medications. But for reasons, we will explore, some true and some false, people can be hesitant or unaware about the benefits of using cannabis as medicine.

Dr. Christine Arseneau, Pharm.D., FMCHC addresses four hurdles that people typically need to overcome to use cannabis as a medicine:

1. Fear of THC
2. Legality/stigma
3. Picking a delivery system (inhaling vs. oral vs. topical…)
4. Finding your dose

Christine earned her doctorate in pharmacy in 2008 and has a unique skill set due to her diverse work experience and entrepreneurial spirit. She is a functional medicine certified health coach, has certifications in cannabis medicine from Oaksterdam University (America’s first cannabis college), and is a member of the International Society of Cannabis Pharmacists.

She has an invaluable breadth of knowledge of how to utilize Western Medicine’s wisdom and combine that with her passion in natural options and addressing the root causes of disease for optimum health and wellness.
