The New Zealand Medicinal Cannabis Scheme in Practice: The Experience of a recently graduated Medical Herbalist.
Sunshine Tremain is a Medical Herbalist and Naturopath. She graduated from SPCNM in 2016 and completed the AUT Post-grad Cannabis Course in 2020. Over the last 18 months she has become actively involved in a group called the Cannaherbalists who are focused on educating medical herbalists on all things Cannabis. The group’s aims are to ensure the future of the herbalist’s pathway for preparing and prescribing medicinal cannabis in a traditional whole plant form – this is their scope of practice. The group has an emphasis on harm minimisation and patient safety.
Sunshine will be presenting her unique journey from graduation to accomplished practitioner, becoming a CannaHerbalist, the pros and cons of working with this plant including the legal issues.
