Kala is a RN with 11 years practice experience, majority of it being in the emergency room with some time spent clinical instructing and in community care. 8 years ago, cannabis entered her life bringing her freedom from her debilitating insomnia. Prior to using cannabis medicinally, she believed every stigma that existed about it. To give herself permission to use cannabis she dove into the research and was hooked. Her passion to learn about cannabis and teaching others about the potential healing power of this plant has led to creating her independent practice, The Cannabis Nurses. In her practice she does public speaking, group education and one on one holistic cannabis consulting. She is also passionate about educating other nurses and with the Canadian Institute of Integrative Nursing Development and Education (The CIINDE) she created a first of its kind, a 6 month accredited Holistic Cannabis Nurse Program. This program will dive deep in to empowering the nurse to hold space, to care for and advocate for individuals that want to include cannabis in their lifelong healing journeys.
