Introducing Cannabis and the Endocannabinoid System – Part Two with Heather Ciprani

Hawthorn MSHN program student Heather Ciprani joins us again to review the physiology of the body’s endocannabinoid system and how it is affected by ingesting cannabis. Based on research and her own clinical experiences she will delve into the disease/pathophysiology and what cannabis can do to influence it. She will provide instructions for the best preparation techniques for addressing a wide range of conditions, the proper dosing methods, the contraindications and other unintended results.

Hawthorn welcomes back Heather Ciprani for Part 2 of her 2-part webinar presentation Introducing Cannabis and the Endocannabinoid System – Part 2.

Heather started working with the cannabis plant in Humboldt County and eventually on many different farms learning farming methods and all the various stages of growing. Being exposed to many different farms’ processing methods provided great insight. Being an avid learner, Heather attended different workshops learning to make her own medicine, concentrating on high CBD cultivars since most growers weren’t focused there yet.

This presentation will further address the cannabis plant and the endocannabinoid system to give you a deeper understanding of how it works and what the therapeutics applications are. We will cover all the aspects to consider when using cannabis and you will be equipped with the knowledge of the latest research. The information is not meant to diagnose or treat disease.

This webinar will be valuable to students and healthcare professionals, practitioners of the healing arts, dispensary workers, and medical cannabis users who want to understand the science of cannabis and its effects on the whole body. Up until legalization, there has been much controversy regarding this plant, and education and research had been constrained. Wanting more formal training, Heather completed the Holistic Cannabis Practitioner Certification with the Holistic Cannabis Academy and is currently a few classes away from starting her Thesis for her Master of Science in Holistic Nutrition (MSHN) degree with Hawthorn University. Heather’s goal is to incorporate cannabis research in her thesis.
