When we started this program, Cannabis-Assisted Psychotherapy wasn’t really a named thing. Here are some definitions that Medicinal Mindfulness uses to describe our work.
Cannabis Sativa is a safe and sacred medicinal tool which supports clients in turning inward, resolving tensions stored deep within the body, tracking inner sensations, and releasing traumas from the nervous system. Cannabis-assisted psychedelic therapy is different than “getting high.”
