We had the good fortune of connecting with Janice Bissex and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Janice, what is the most important factor behind your success?
I have consciously kept my Jannabis Wellness business small. I answer every phone call and know many of my customers/clients. I strive to provide not only the best quality CBD products, but also the best service. According to the FDA, 70% of CBD products on the market are mislabeled, with some containing zero CBD. Because of the increasing popularity of CBD, many businesses have popped up looking to make a quick buck. As a registered dietitian, I entered this market after my dad found dramatic relief using CBD and medical cannabis. I’m passionate about ending the stigma surrounding cannabis and helping others find relief from pain, anxiety, insomnia, depression, autoimmune disorders, GI issues, and other debilitating conditions using CBD and medical cannabis.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
It was a bit of a bold step to leave my business as a food blogger/podcaster and cookbook author to pursue training to be a Holistic Cannabis Practitioner. It has been a challenge due to the stigma around cannabis, the skeptics who thought a dietitian should not be doing this work, and the financial issues with payment processors not wanting to work with me because I sell CBD. However, this is the most rewarding work I have even done. Many of my clients have experienced life-changing relief from pain, anxiety, insomnia, and other conditions using my Jannabis Wellness CBD.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would take them to downtown Boston to walk the Freedom Trail, take a ride on the Swan Boats in the Public Gardens, and then head to the North End for some fantastic Italian food.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My dad is the reason I do what I do. Had he not decided to try medical cannabis and CBD to treat his severe pain I would never have known the power of this plant. I grew up in the “just say no” generation and had not idea that cannabis could be used to treat such a wide variety of conditions.
