First Cannabis Education Center Opens in San Diego County

One Minute Cannabist Aims to Elevate the Medicinal Cannabis Industry Through Education, Enlightenment and Enrichment


The One Minute Cannabist (OMC) Education Center, slated to open in June, is a unique concept for southern California. The world of cannabis is greatly misunderstood and people are confused about the legality, benefits and how to properly use cannabis medicinally. The OMC Education Center is a place where any adult who wants to learn more about the therapeutic benefits of cannabis and how to safely and effectively implement its use as part of a natural healthful regime, can come to learn in a professional, safe and non-intimidating environment. “The amount of information about medicinal cannabis or even a specific condition to be treated with this healing herb can be overwhelming. We are on a mission to dispel the negative societal stigma and educate adults who want to learn more about this plant,” says Terry Lynn, co-founder of One Minute Cannabist.

       Cannabis is quickly re-establishing its place as a plant medicine. A recent Yahoo News/Marist poll revealed that 80 percent of Americans support the use of medical cannabis. As a result of more openness, millions of people of all ages across the nation are experiencing relief from arthritic, muscle and nerve pain; neuropathy; fibromyalgia; headaches; backaches and menopausal symptoms. They are also detoxing from opioids, sleeping better, increasing libido, decreasing PTSD, managing everyday stress and anxiety and more, simply by using medicinal cannabis.

       “So many adults—especially seniors—are interested in trying cannabis, but are not sure where or how to start. While many have past experience with cannabis, some have never tried it in their lives. Understanding the physiology of why it works and the therapies available is key to success. A common misconception is that you have to smoke it,” says Robbin Lynn, co-founder of One Minute Cannabist. “It’s a new world for anyone who only used cannabis recreationally in their youth. Today there are many non-inhalation therapies such as tinctures, edibles and even topicals. Cannabis, when used properly, is a safe and effective way to take charge of your own health. The OMC Education Center is integral to bringing cannabis out of the shadows and back into the lives of the people.”

       One Minute Cannabist Education Center will offer intimate workshops covering topics such as Cannabis 101: An Introduction to Medicinal Cannabis, How to Use Cannabis Safely and Effectively, Cannabis for Seniors, How to Talk with Your Adult Parents about Cannabis, Cannabis for Women and more. In addition, private consulting for individuals or families will be offered.
