Jay Jay O’Brien

I’m a Certified Cannabis Health Coach & Educator at my own business, naturalisticallynow, and Executive Co-Chair of the nonprofit, EduCanNation Cannabis Education Inc. EduCanNation’s mission is to provide responsible Cannabis education and to advocate for Cannabis amnesty and inclusion, de-stigmatization, policy change, and access rights. (I’m also a flower ceremony facilitator, content creator for the Effective Cannabis Newsletter, and featured writer in the upcoming book, “High Aspirations: Budding Dreams to Harvesting Hope”)

A 2x cancer sur’thriver’ thanks in part to Cannabis, my success with the plant medicine encouraged me to keep learning so that I could offer others the option to live well with hope or transition well with a better quality of life with the use of Cannabis.

The greatest gap in the industry is education. My mission is to bridge that gap through coaching, education, and support and to build (or join!) a network of compassionate healers through the ‘Canecdotal Collective’ and share stories of hope with the masses.

Indigenous (Blackfoot/Cree). Live on the Legacy side of the industry.
