American Cannabis Nurses Association
Dedicated to knowledge
The American Cannabis Nurses Association (ACNA) is a national organization dedicated to expanding the knowledge base of endo-cannabinoid therapeutics among nurses. It was founded by a small group of dedicated nurses who saw the need for an organization to bring nurses together in a collegial and informational capacity to discuss the growing use of cannabis in medicine.
Nurses provide direct patient care, using a holistic approach that incorporates the biological, sociological and psychological factors of patients in their care. Hence, the public health considerations of cannabis use, the social and legal climate, and patient care issues are all directly relevant to clinical nursing practice.
GreenNurse Sherri is a founding member.

The Cannabis Nurses Network
Connect, learn, advance & influence
Cannabis Nurses Network promotes and provides quality education for ongoing continued learning. Through education and shared information, cannabis nurses are supported in gaining knowledge, experience, and confidence. Knowledgeable nurses who have understanding of the Endocannabinoid System and Cannabinoid Therapeutics are making major impacts within the healthcare/legal systems and wellness/cannabis industries worldwide.
Advocacy is a main function of nursing care. As nurses we advocate for our patients; as cannabis nurses we advocate for cannabis patients. Cannabis Nurses Network advocates for the health, wellness and professional safety of nurses who are embarking on the cannabis nurse journey for themselves and/or their patients.
