Holistic Cannabis Network has developed prototypes for nutrition-forward infused cannabis edibles, rather than sugary, artificially-laden products. As registered dietitian nutritionists, co-founders Laura Lagano and Donna Shields certainly know about food + cannabis as medicine. Journalist Jerry Brown of sativacomm.com caught up with Donna Shields. Here’s a snippet of their conversation.
“We’re basically using whole foods, all plant based, and really relying on spices and herbs as well to bring some functional, nutritional benefit,”
“Cannabis is an incredibly powerful therapeutic tool,” Shields said. “When you combine that with the power of food as medicine you really have something terrific.”
“There’s really very little in the marketplace that exists to serve the needs of not only the medical cannabis consumer but also those in the recreational end of the business who are looking for a healthier alternative,” she said.
