Dr. J personally experienced some major unexpected health setbacks a few years ago and was diagnosed with lupus. As a result, she delved deeper into educating herself on natural, hō’listik remedies to treat her symptoms. Now, she has made it her mission to share what she has learned and not only educate others, but to empower people to take control of their health by applying these remedies to themselves.
In her practice of medicine, Dr. Stewart has listened and seen the benefits of cannabis in her cancer, migraine and seizure patients. As a lupus survivor she has also experienced the benefits of CBD in managing her illness. This has prompted her to gain additional knowledge about the plant and obtain additional education and cannabis certification through the MediCanna Academy. She believes education is the key to understanding cannabis and the many benefits of the plant and is excited to be on the cutting edge of legalization of medical cannabis and part of the Bloom Academy of Cannabis team. Dr. Stewart certifies qualifying patients for medical cannabis in her private practice in St. Louis, Missouri and on a collaborative basis with other area medical clinics.
