As a private practice Holistic Nurse and hypnotherapist, I have been educating myself, clients, friends and family on the therapeutic effects of cannabis for the past number of years and wanted to go deeper and incorporate cannabis nursing more formally into my practice. With the increasing amount of information being disseminated on cannabis, it has gotten difficult to 'weed out' the misinformation. Enter Eloise & Radicle Health. I was directed to Eloise Theisen and Radicle Health by a reputable online dispensary during an educational inquiry. To my surprise, I discovered that they offered an online (and in person) curriculum on Cannabis Therapeutics for Nursing. The curriculum was absolutely, off the charts amazing! The online, self paced course covers the fundamentals of essential knowledge for nurses, the role of the endocannabinoid system, cannabinoid basics, extraction, route and dosage methods, myths, geriatrics and the therapeutic effects as it relates to chronic pain (and more). The material is presented in a methodical and easy to understand manner for anyone; not just healthcare practitioners. Eloise's experience, narration and presentation skills are phenomenal and she has the experience and track record to back her up. (And, yeah - you should meet and hear her in person too.) I consider myself a "forever student" of wellness and healing, and personally like to build my library and revisit knowledge bases. I particularly appreciated that the course allowed me to download the transcripts, blogs and other information for future review. As research continues and cannabis laws & regulations are reformed, there is no doubt that Eloise and Radicle Health are the clear leaders in educating and advocating facts and details in an ethical and professional manner. I HIGHLY recommend this and any of their educational classes, workshops, communications and blogs. I finished the online course craving more and will continue to look to Radicle Health to share & educate with the latest factual information while advocating for patients' rights and the overall wellness of the community at large. Thank you Eloise and Radicle Health. I'm your biggest fan!

The amount of information we have on cannabinoids is encouraging and intimidating. What we have yet to learn is immense. This course is the basic introduction to the physiological theories of how endogenous, plant, and synthetic cannabinoids can effect chronic health problems that otherwise have poor treatments- such as chronic pain. Everyone in health care should know this stuff. It is also accessible to most lay people.

Radicle Health Instructors

CEO, Radicle Health

Eloise Theisen, AGPCNP-BC

Eloise is a board-certified Adult Geriatric Nurse Practitioner with over 20 years experience in nursing. Prior to cannabis Eloise worked for about 14 years in oncology at John Muir. She started her own cannabis practice about 6 years ago and she has treated over 6000 patients using cannabis. Eloise was possibly the first HCP to bring a clinical dosing regimen to the cannabis space and has assembled the knowledge and data to use cannabis to treat a broad range of conditions and disease, especially those that commonly afflict seniors—pain, insomnia, anxiety, and depression. There are very few HCPs nationally with the same level of expertise and experience. Eloise is the President of the American Cannabis Nurses Association and will serve in this position through 2022. Eloise is currently an instructor at the Pacific College of Health and Science in San Diego.

Prior to working in cannabis, Timothy worked for 15 years for Oracle and PeopleSoft as an information architect, technical writer, and curriculum developer. Timothy has a B.A. in English Literature from the University of Michigan, which he self-funded by painting houses, mowing lawns, working retail graveyard shifts, flipping burgers, selling encyclopedias door-to-door, and working on a fishing boat in the Bering Sea and Gulf of Alaska.
