Laura Barrett-Nutting, MBA, BSN, RN, is a plant-based and integrative medicine nurse who brings over 20 years of experience helping patients cope with critical illness and chronic disease. Her enthusiasm for wellness and food as medicine led her to explore the multiple medical cannabinoid options available. Nurse Laura has worked in each of the plant touching cannabis fields: grower, processor, and dispensary, as well as sales, marketing, compliance, and business development.
Nurse Laura also works with hemp companies who offer safe, reliable, and affordable options for patients. Her passion for education and standards in the cannabis/hemp industries empowered her to start a non-profit organization in support of healthcare professionals who do similar work across the country, the National Clinical Director Consortium. In her own business and with the NCDC she works with partners to provide education and resources for providers, pharmacists, nurses, patients, caregivers, and dispensary staff on topics ranging from settings industry stands, to micro-dosing, to compliance, and to disease specific concerns.
