Episode 24 - Patient Advocate, Melissa Newman Joins Gramps To Talk About Her Medical Conditions And How She Uses Cannabis As Part Of Her Daily Regimen For Pain


My guest in this episode is a friend and fellow advocate, Melissa Newman is a Texas TCUP patient with multiple chronic illnesses.  

For fifteen years she listened to many doctors and tried countless prescriptions that only added to her disability. Through this adversity, she learned about an alternative approach to healing.  Her current regimen is a combination of plant medicine, diet, exercise, meditation, and immersion in nature. These conscious life changes have made all the difference for her. 

She currently volunteers at multiple non-profits locally to connect and educate others on plant medicine, and to improve our community.  All while being a mother. She is committed to the significance of love and respect for our planet and those living on it.  

Lets meet Melissa and hear her story.
