Reviews

“I have taken several other medical marijuana courses, but this one was the best by far.   ~Rebecca Sherry, LMHC, Lee Co., Florida 

"This is a great course in order to have a true and thorough understanding of how we are progressing in knowledge based on research. We can't prove the benefits of CBD and Marijuana, but we can see how it may be contributing to healing. More testing is needed, but the team allowed the reader to think and process. The greatest healing for the client is the therapist listening, non-judgmental, and open to the client's resiliency. Susan and Matt have done this beautifully. Gratitude. As a pastor and LMHC, I see how a simple referral to discuss the issue is all I might need to do to help wholeness and love to come about."  ~Ronald Camarda, LMHC, Duval Co, FL

 "This course is chock full of the most up to date information on the subject. It challenges many outdated conclusions that need to be changed."  ~Jacqueline McCollum-Bridges, LMHC, Lake County, FL
