GROWING TOGETHER

GROWING TOGETHER

PlantEd Collective are a female-led team with experience spanning a range of specialities, such as: education, the arts, activism, health and social care, patient advocacy, cannabinoid therapy and movement medicine.

 

We come together with the collective aim to create dialogue and engagements using complementary specialisms, building a platform of education around wellness, medicinal plants and herbology at a time where society is actively stepping away from the synthetic. PlantEd’s mission is to provide a space for those who are, instead, looking to restore their relationship with natural treatment methods, in line with the very latest research from around the world.

Health Happiness and Serenity with London Heal

CBD is the buzz word of the moment. But does it really help support health and wellbeing or is it commercial hype? Since the discovery of the body’s own endocannabinoid system in the late 90’s, we now understand the mechanism of action for plant cannabinoids.

This week, Jade Proudman joins Tatiana at London Heal to share her journey back to a state of health thanks to CBD. Following her positive experience, Jade and her husband launched a company in 2016 to bring safe, legal and effective CBD to a wider audience.

What is CBD?

THIS IS US….

Abby

With 10 years’ NHS service in Operational Management, Abby now represents United Patients Alliance as Head of Outreach, incorporating advocacy, campaigning, and education to safeguard the patient voice in advancing legal access to cannabis therapeutics. She is also Patient Access Lead for Drug Science’s Project TWENTY21, providing treatment to 20,000 patients in a national medical cannabis pilot.

 

Under the care of a plethora of specialists for EDS and the long list of associated symptoms, Abby knows all too well what it means to be a patient. She has been a long term consumer of medical cannabis to combat chronic pain and fatigue, and to avoid the side effects of opioid pharmaceuticals.

Jade

After suffering with ill health for a number of years, Jade found herself in life limiting circumstances. She spent 3 years in and out of hospital and underwent a number of emergency, complex surgeries which resulted in complications. She has had to say her goodbyes to her husband and children on two occasions.

 

Jades health declined to the point that her husband, Leslie, had to become her carer. She became house-bound, was unable to walk unaided or eat food without assistance. Jade was prescribed 19 prescription drugs daily to manage chronic pain, epilepsy, her diseased gut and fatigue. Jade was so dependent on Morphine and Codeine for pain relief, her quality of life was so bad that she didn’t want to be alive anymore. She requested that Leslie assist her in administering medication to allow her to pass peacefully. Leslie refused. Instead, together they watched the documentary ‘WEED’ with Dr Sanjay Gupta which shifted the focus onto cannabinoid therapy. Managing to get access of a bottle of CBD oil, to their delight, Jade was Morphine free in 48 hrs.

 

Supply in the UK was unreliable, and Jade discovered she was one of many consumers that had parted with money to buy CBD without delivery of product. She took matters into her own hands and set up Savage Cabbage, a family run small business that imports and retails CBD products to the people she knew so desperately needed access.

 

Savage Cabbage is now 3 years old and has a large network of CBD consumers.

Carly

Carly is a former Lecturer in the Arts who has a creative background that includes exhibiting at the Tate and the Saatchi gallery.

 

After having to give up her role due to health problems, she discovered that Medical Cannabis was not only an appropriate, but more effective substitute for Opioids to treat her Fibromyalgia and post-stroke Neuropathy.

 

She now advocates for patient access to Medical Cannabis as a Director of the United Patients Alliance.

 

Carly was the first person in the UK to receive a prescription for herbal Cannabis privately since the law change in 2018. She is working tirelessly with government organisations in order to convert this to an NHS prescription, with the hope of setting precedent for other patients to follow.

 

She is involved in many projects that seek to establish wider access to Medical Cannabis in the UK, most recently launching Carlys Amnesty, which seeks to provide exemption from prosecution for patients to grow their own medicine.

 

Carly is also a contributing member and advisor to the newly established Global Medical Cannabis Council

Liz

Liz has worked in education for the past twenty years: as a primary school teacher, a primary school leader; a school improvement adviser with the Local Authority and a hub manager with the National Literacy Trust.

 

Liz’s interest in cannabinoids surfaced in 2015, when she was hospitalised with an inflammatory bowel condition. Reading and research led her into understanding how the endocannabinoid system supports homeostasis and helps to regulate the body’s inflammatory response. This information was integral to an improvement in her condition and also led her to develop a wider understanding of how cannabinoids can support health and well-being.

 

With a passion for education and recognising that information about medicinal cannabis can be unreliable, Liz has written a number of accessible books about this subject including: ‘Only a Plant’ and ‘Mum’s Medicine’.
