If you’re struggling with addiction, cannabis + mindfulness can be a much more effective treatment for harm reduction and addiction recovery.

Right, you’ve been told that cannabis is a gateway drug and that it couldn’t possibly be beneficial to someone dealing with addiction. But take this into consideration. People struggling with addiction have trouble eating and sleeping, they get depressed, they have vivid nightmares, their body goes through withdrawals, and much more.

The right strains of cannabis will help to increase appetite, allow people sleep through the night peacefully, elevate their mood, decrease seizures, and much more. And when these withdrawal symptoms settle down, it becomes much easier for people to transition away from their addictive substances.

In this groundbreaking new course, Amanda Reiman and Jana Drakka will share the research, the strategies, and the practices you need to successfully use cannabis as an effective harm reduction and addiction recovery treatment. Consider using this all-natural plant that grows in the ground as a better treatment for your recovery path.

You’ll benefit by understanding:

  • The misconceptions of cannabis as a gateway drug and what the science actually says
  • The multiple ways for HOW to use cannabis as a treatment for drug dependence
  • Safety: how to make sure you are being totally safe with this approach
