Do you have hot flashes? Does it bother your sleep? Could you use a little less anxiety in your life?

Maureen is a Family Nurse Practitioner who works in a private clinic in Baltimore to help people get certified for medical cannabis, and she gives them guidance on how to use it effectively. Her background is with the Veteran’s Administration in primary care and at Johns Hopkins in sexual health. But it is this role in certifying medical cannabis patients where she is having more positive outcomes than ever before.

Imagine her experience, certifying people with health conditions who qualify for medical cannabis and then learning about their progress upon their 1-year renewal visit and how dramatically cannabis has improved their quality of life. She and her patients describe it as ‘life-changing.’ For our conversation in this episode, we focus on Women’s Health, and she reveals some incredible stories you will want to hear.
