ROWAN COUNTY, N.C. — On a sunny June afternoon, Nicole Ryan sits at a picnic bench at Patterson Farms in Rowan County with a client suffering from joint pain and stiffness in her hands.

“I think a lot of nurses do jump on this healing journey and that’s why we’re so compassionate and empathetic," Ryan said.

Ryan was a registered nurse at Atrium Health Cabarrus...

Ryan left nursing to become a full-time cannabis consultant after seeing the positive results in her clients with CBD, CBG and THC products.

She says her products have only 0.3 THC, the legal amount in North Carolina. She would like to see more, because higher levels of THC increase the effectiveness of the products...

The medicinal marijuana bill has passed the state Senate and is now in the House. Ryan hopes it will pass, but she disagrees with certain restrictions on the bill.

“I would like to see more autoimmune diseases in there and mental health conditions,” Ryan said...

Ryan also disagrees with the prescription limit imposed on doctors.

“I think that's very strange because cannabis has an amazing safety profile, compared to some of the other prescriptions that are given out to people," Ryan said...
