Dedee Culley  

For Dedee Culley, her work as a cannabis nurse is far more than a job or career: It's a calling. Dedee grew up wanting to become a nurse and a teacher. Over 20 years ago, she was able to combine those two passions by becoming an RN and seizing opportunities to teach whenever she could. As an RN, she saw how patients benefited from medical cannabis use when more advanced medications failed.

In 2014, Dedee searched for a way to better manage the chronic pain and anxiety she'd dealt with for years and discovered that more holistic and naturopathic therapies, including cannabis, offered more hope than prescription medications had. In 2018, she learned that cannabis helped children with various forms of epilepsy. Later that year came her biggest personal challenge: Her husband was diagnosed with a glioblastoma, terminal brain tumor. She researched day and night to find what would provide the best hope. Again, she found cannabis. Dedee's personal experiences have driven her passion exponentially to provide best practices and most successful methods to all medical cannabis patients.

Dedee is a Cannabis Sommelier Interpener with the Trichome Institute and owner of 2 Leaf, offering medical cannabis education workshops for social groups and community organizations in Missouri, as well as cannabis education sessions for health care professionals, agencies, and organizations of all sizes and backgrounds.

Congratulations to Dedee for being elected to the Missouri Nurses Association for 2021 and 2022!

She has created and presented material at informational events and workshops throughout MA and CT and was a panelist at the 2019 inaugural ACNA conference in New Orleans.
Caitlin joyfully came to work with cannabis medicine to escape the brutal reality of modern health care: a broken system driven by pharmaceutical and insurance interests, overpriced services, and fear of litigation—a healthcare system that profits from illness and ignorance of preventative health and wellness. One of the many reasons she loves working with Cannabis medicine is that the very process of learning to medicate with this plant is empowering. Working with cannabis allows people to take their health into their own hands and opens the door to connection with plant medicine and wellness.
