Olive’s Branch of New York
Medical cannabis expert and US Navy Veteran Eileen Konieczny found her passion educating patients on safe and effective uses of cannabis-derived medicine from years spent in the healthcare industry. As an oncology nurse for decades and an expert in the administration of medical cannabis, Eileen has seen firsthand its transformative effects for patients, its effects on the lives of families and caregivers, and the sometimes-fraught world of education on the endocannabinoid system. Eileen founded Olive’s Branch, an educational consulting firm, in 2013, to fill this need.
Eileen’s book, Healing with CBD: How Cannabidiol Can Transform Your Health Without the High (Ulysses Press, Sept. 2018), offers a practical and nuanced guide to cannabinoid medicine gleaned from her years of experience in the medical cannabis space. It combines lessons learned from treating patients with tales from-the-field in advocacy at the national level. Eileen has fought for medical cannabis legalization nationally and was a recognized leader in the passing of New York’s medical cannabis bill. Eileen has served on the board of directors for the Children’s Health and Research Foundation and currently serves on the board of directors for the Association of Cannabis Specialists. She is Past President of the American Cannabis Nurses Association, a clinical associate in the Society for Cannabis Clinicians and has been involved in licensed medical cannabis operations in New York and Connecticut.

And although enormous strides have been made in changing the perception & understanding of the benefits of medicinal cannabis, there is still a huge information gap between medical cannabis providers, the medical community and the millions of patients who can benefit.
