Methadone and buprenorphine (synthetic opioids) are also the two most common opioid-like drugs used by Western medicine to help address opioid replacement therapy for substance-abusing pregnant women who seek treatment.
Even with those prescriptions and the enormous profit margin the pharmaceutical companies are making by providing these opioid-like substances, many innocent newborns still experience severe neonatal abstinence syndrome withdrawals.
Recently, Dr. Sanjay Gupta spearheaded an impressive CNN documentary showing how medical cannabinoids are capable of alleviating the need for opiates and possibly becoming the solution to America's growing opioid crisis. Like Dr. Gupta, our founder strongly agrees that medical cannabinoids, if used properly through the guidance of allopathic nurses, may help address our growing opioid crisis.
It will reduce the number of precious preemies and newborn infants going through the painful and lifelong debilitating effects of neonatal absence syndrome and the withdrawals associated with it.
As a result of witnessing firsthand the heart-wrenching effects that opioids have on our most innocent and vulnerable population, our founder created another nurse-driven mission to address America's growing opioid epidemic.
Through nature's medicine and through the hearts and hands of dedicated allopathic nurses, we are the only profession large enough to address one of America's largest growing healthcare crisis. Nurses, please step up and become a cannabinoid (CBD) friendly nurse advocate. America needs you!
