In this episode of The Vine, PMP talks with Dr. Lola Ohonba, the founder of WCI Health, an alternative health and wellness company with a focus on helping healthcare professionals, dispensaries, and the community.
Dr. Lola Ohonba (aka Dr. O. to our #ChiefSkillzTribe on Clubhouse) helps patients understand the health benefits of plant medicine including cannabis and psychedelics. Her book “A Pharmacist’s Guide to Cannabis: A perspective of a non-conformist clinician” is available now. It’s a fantastic overview of the wellness benefits of cannabis and gives insight into the endocannabinoid system and terpenes in an easy to digest guide.
We discuss the power of plant medicines, understanding terpenes, and how they can be found in nature. We also talk about the changing policies around decriminalizing psychedelics have exciting promises for assisting patients. As a clinical pharmacist as well as a leading educator on cannabis and psychedelics, Dr. O. offers courses for practitioners and the public.
Dr. O.’s online educational courses include a Cannabis as Medicine Master Class, Dispensary Educational Series, Doctor / Healthcare Professional Educational Series, and a new monthly Health Equals Wealth Membership. She understands the power of botanicals and fungi as medicine and teaches in a way that helps make complicated science approachable and fun.
Visit Dr. O.’s shop on her website to explore her line of CBD products, and tune into her podcast “Let’s Talk Plant Medicine: Cannabis, Psychedelics & Pharmaceutics with Dr. O.” to learn about alternative ways to improve your health and well-being using the healing power of medicinal herbs such as cannabinoids, psychedelics, and conventional therapy.
At PMP we’re on a mission to connect and share stories from trustworthy business owners and organization leaders in the cannabis and psychedelic space. We look forward to building a community that is dedicated to compassionate care, and are so pleased to have Dr. O. join us on The Vine. We hope that you'll share in our support of WCI Health.
