Why Nurse Midwives Should Be Schooled in Alternative Meds Tags: nurse midwives alternative meds mmj medical marijuana

The most common perception of what a nurse midwife does is prenatal care as well as being there to deliver the baby and throughout the post natal period. Nurse midwives also tend to newborns as well in some states and in some situations, but limiting the duties of a nurse midwife to pregnancy is actually diminishing all that they do in many states. In some states a certified nurse midwife takes care of women from puberty through to menopause and in other states they are perhaps mostly relegated to prenatal care and delivery.

State by State Regulations Vary

Each state has different regulations, so if you are studying to be a nurse midwife, you may want to first see what you will be doing in your state. One of the most regulated duties is the prescription and administration of medicines. If you are studying how to become a certified nurse midwife, it is advisable to pay special attention to the use of alternative meds. Not only should you understand alternative treatments if you are allowed, by law, to prescribe and administer medications but you will want to understand the possible side effects that could pose a threat to mom and/or baby inside her womb.

Some Alternative Treatments Are Definitely Not Safe!

Some may be safe during pregnancy and others, not so much. Just because they are holistic doesn’t mean they can’t cause early contractions and labor leading to a spontaneous abortion. Many ‘colon cures’ have been known to promote contractions of the uterus, so midwives are encouraged to understand many of the most common naturopathic treatments. One ingredient in particular, senna leaf, works because it promotes peristalsis, colon contractions. However, it is also able to cause uterine contractions so pregnant women should never take this natural remedy – ever! Stool softeners work safer and better and are not apt to harm baby, according to the FDA.

Are CBDs Safe During Pregnancy?

While most women report that CBDs help alleviate morning sickness, joint inflammation and pain, it is never advisable to take or use any product on the skin until speaking with your obstetrician or midwife. For this reason, it is vital that anyone studying to be a midwife should learn about the safe use of CBDs by pregnant or lactating women. CBDs are not the psychoactive compound in marijuana and they have been proven in study after study to be safe for mom and her unborn child. Again, it is always advisable to talk to your doctor prior to putting anything in or on your body, but know that CBDs are considered safe and are even allowed in prohibition states.

Nurse midwifery is a wonderful occupation that provides great joy for both mom and the nurse herself. Every healthy, happy child brought into this world is cause for celebration and how exhilarating it is to be there with mom or mom and dad during this happy time. It is a respected nursing specialty and one that carries a better than average rate of pay. While you won’t become a millionaire on a certified nurse midwife salary, you will make better than the national average and that’s a very respectable income. Join thousands of nurses in their quest to become midwives. It’s an honorable and ancient vocation – one you can be extremely proud of.

Here's What You Need to Start a Cannabusiness Tags: cannabusiness business startup mmj

A cannabusiness is basically a company within the cannabis industry. You will be working on making money from cannabis that can be used to help people medically in a variety of ways, and you will give people the safe recreational marijuana they want. If you want to get a glimpse into what is necessary to actually start this type of business, continue reading for a few helpful tips.

First Off, You Need to Have Business Know-How

You can’t run any kind of business, including a cannabusiness, without the right background and education in business. While getting your bachelor’s degree in business administration will definitely set you on the right track, if you really want to succeed as a leader of your own company, it is a great idea to enroll in an MBA program. There are plenty of careers for MBA graduates, and loads of MBA jobs available, but this degree will really help you if you want to run a unique business that truly stands out. So invest in your education first and then start your business once you are ready.

Know the Laws Surrounding Cannabis Use

Before you start your own cannabusiness, you need to become familiar with the laws surrounding the use of cannabis in your area. Regulations and markets will vary dramatically, and what is totally legal in one state might not be allowed at all in another state, so you really need to do your research before deciding upon where you will open up your company.

Many times, entrepreneurs in the cannabis industry will have to learn how to navigate a lot of legal roadblocks that can become really frustrating really quickly. Knowing the regulations and laws thoroughly will help you be prepared, and it will also help you find the right people to collaborate with so you can guarantee your success.

Determine the Specific Path That You Will Take

The cannabis industry is actually quite vast, and you can open up a cannabusiness in a variety of different niches. You might, for example, have a farm where you will grow the cannabis and then sell it legally. Or you might have a storefront where people can purchase cannabis accessories, such as vaporizers or glass pipes.

Put simply, before you open up your cannabusiness, you will need to figure out exactly what path you will take. Then you can write up the appropriate business plan that you can follow to meet your short-term and long-term goals.

Become an Investor Instead

Do you have enough money to invest in a startup that’s already going strong in the cannabis industry? Then consider taking this route instead of starting your own company. You won’t have to deal with any of the legalities of running a cannabusiness, and you might find it easier to be involved without actually running the company on your own.

Opening up a cannabusiness can be really exciting, and it is definitely something different. If you want to take this direction for your career, start by getting the right education so that you can be fully prepared to meet all of the challenges—including the legal challenges—of running this type of company.
