I’m Jessie, a registered nurse who was injured in an accident. After a long painful journey, I found medical marijuana. I started this marijuana blog hoping I could help others find relief too. Read more about me and my story here.
How do you feel about cannabis?
Maybe you’re like me, a patient who’s suffering, failed by traditional medicine and desperate for guidance?
Maybe you’re a cannabis enthusiast who’s s looking for camaraderie, data, and fun facts?
Or maybe marijuana still scares the crap out of you and you’re trying to figure out why the world suddenly wants it legalized?
Whoever you are, and however you got here — I’m glad you’re here!
MarijuanaMommy.com’s mission is to teach facts about cannabis and challenge the stigma surrounding marijuana.

What is a Cannabis Nurse?
A cannabis nurse is a licensed or registered nurse with a special focus on medicinal cannabis. Cannabis nurses are members of the American Cannabis Nurses Association, a “national organization dedicated to expanding the knowledge base of endo-cannabinoid therapeutics among nurses.”
Nursing school and medical school do NOT teach about cannabinoid therapy. Cannabis specialists fill the gap. If you’re a nurse, join us in this rapidly growing medical specialty.
What to Expect from MarijuanaMommy.com
Science & Research
I love science and research. At MarijuanaMommy.com you’ll find links to peer-reviewed research and never propaganda.
Blurred Lines Help Fight The Stigma
Language can help blur the lines between science and stereotype.
I love all the words. And I use them: cannabis, marijuana, ganja, hash, chronic, Mary Jane, weed, dabs, doobie, herb, pot, 420, etc.
There’s a concept in the cannabis industry that only some terms are acceptable for describing cannabis. Sometimes individuals express discomfort with the word marijuana. Some people strictly prefer the Latin-derived term, cannabis.
Etymologists confirm that the word marijuana derives from the Nahuatl language.
Marijuana is a Spanish-Mexican word derived from the indigenous Mexican people.
Unfortunately, history doesn’t know a lot about the Nahuatl people. They didn’t have a written language and much of their culture was decimated by the Spanish crusades.
The word marijuana is one of the few remnants of their beautiful culture.
If you’re uncomfortable with the word marijuana…
You don’t have to use it. But please don’t try to take it away from the individuals who love the history and respect the culture that brought us this word.
The associations to the word marijuana are negative only because of governmental propaganda. Altering the established language to correct that error is unrealistic and honestly is kind of xenophobic.
Utilize Neural Plasticity To Fight Stereotypes
Fortunately, thanks to neural plasticity, we can change the associations we have to words!
All we have to do is create stronger, more positive associations. That’s why at MarijuanaMommy, we embrace all words.

What is a Holistic Nurse?
What do you think of when you hear the word “holistic”? Some think of crystals, energy, and spiritual advisors. Not exactly. Those things may have a place in a holistic approach but they do not define it, nor are they practiced by every holistic nurse.
Holistic nurses are professionally licensed nurses who treat the patient as a whole – mind, body, and spirit– instead of strictly as a body. Whereas Western medicine primarily addresses physiological issues, holistic nurses consider the impact that mental health and spiritual health have on physical health (and vice versa).
Western medicine is important and needed, but it doesn’t fix everything. We’re more than just a body.
