Laura Lagano Wellness, New Jersey
Laura Lagano, MS, RDN, CDN is the author of The CBD Oil Miracle (St. Martin’s Press, 2019) and was co-founder and education director of the Holistic Cannabis Academy. Laura’s journey to cannabis was led by her dissatisfaction with what conventional healthcare had to offer her daughter, Isabella Speranza, who was on the autism spectrum. As one of a handful of RDNs who has completed the prestigious Institute of Functional Medicine program, Laura integrates her expertise in nutrition, functional medicine, and the endocannabinoid system in her private practice Laura Lagano Wellness. She speaks frequently at conferences about the ancient plant, consults with cannabis-related companies, and serves on the advisory boards of medical marijuana dispensaries. One of the first dietitians to work in the media, Laura writes for The Fresh Toast, Kitchen Toke, and Holistic Primary Care magazines and has written for or been quoted in the New York Times, Forbes, HuffPost, Stitcher, MerryJane, The Daily Beast, and numerous other media outlets. She was awarded an Ozy Rising Star award for her pioneering work in shining a light on the endocannabinoid system and the healing benefits of the cannabis plant. Laura’s core value system is about nurturing relationships though collaboration to eliminate “cannaphobia” globally.
