Medical Cannabis


The body contains an endocannabinoid system (ECS) that plays a role in regulating sleep, mood, appetite, anxiety, fertility, pain-sensation, and cognitive processes. These areas all function together to maintain your body’s internal state of equilibrium, known as homeostasis.  

Medical cannabis contains cannabinoids which bind to the receptors of the ECS, helping regulate bodily functions. Simulation of the ECS can improve digestion, mood, skin function, nerve function,  metabolism, relieve chronic pain, and reduce inflammation. These improvements can help alleviate symptoms of many chronic illnesses and diseases to improve your overall health and wellness.

In my practice:

I am happy to announce I will be adding Medical Cannabis Certification appointments to my practice. Medical cannabis can be used as a holistic alternative to many prescription medications that treat symptoms or diseases such as chronic pain, inflammation, stress, skin disorders, multiple sclerosis, and cancer. The addition of medical cannabis to your treatment plan can also encourage restful sleep, promote a healthy weight, decrease the incidence of diabetes, and fight multi-drug resistant bacteria. 

Any Virginia resident is invited to schedule their medical cannabis consultation today. In order to pursue a medical cannabis treatment option, each patient must be evaluated to determine if they qualify for their state’s Medical Cannabis Registration. I will evaluate your symptoms and possibly make a recommendation for the approval of your Virginia Medical Marijuana card.

A unique opportunity to this appointment with Functional Health and Wellness, is you will receive an introduction to medical cannabis not offered by many other practices. I will educate you on the biological role of medical cannabis within your body and how it can be used to eliminate your specific concerns. We can troubleshoot your dosage and frequency of use together in order to ensure an optimal level of health and wellness.

As an added benefit, anyone who schedules a Medical Cannabis Certification appointment and would like to continue meeting with me to explore other areas of health improvement will have the price of the appointment deducted from the JumpStart Membership Program.
