Excerpted from "The Grit and Grind of Autism."
"Laura is spearheading education of medical cannabis. From CBD and hemp oil to terpenes and cannabinoids she explains it all for parents and caregivers. We had a fantastic, educational discussion that will hopefully empower families to explore CBD and cannabis further as an avenue for their child’s healing. www.asknurselaura.com (for consultation)"
