About Joanna Matson-Tandberg
Joanna strives to embrace Cannabis and Ayurvedic medicine in all aspects of her life. She learned of the science behind the plants as a form of healing from a debilitating life with Crohn’s, Thyroid disease, and severe degenerative arthritis of her spine. Her passion for healing naturally extended to her creating a healing protocol for her father, who in 2015 was diagnosed with Stage IV metastatic melanoma to his lungs, stomach, lymph and adrenal glands. He overcame this devastating diagnosis by following a strict Ayurvedic and cannabis oil regime,
and recently received his “no metastatic masses” radiology report by his oncologist at Emory Medical.
Joanna is certified as an Ayurveda Wellness Counselor from both the Kerala Ayurveda Academy and the American Institute of Vedic Studies, and is recognized by the National Ayurvedic Medical Association (NAMA). She is a certified Cannabis Clinician through The Medical Cannabis Institute and Dr. Sulak’s Healer programs. Memberships include American Herbalists Guild, GreenMed Research , Yoga Alliance, Project CBD, and the Society of
Cannabis Clinicians. She is also a faculty member for the Holistic Cannabis Academy and approved educator for NAMA.
Joanna is founder and CEO of ZV Botanicals, a lifestyle and wellness brand offering hand-made CBD-infused Ayurvedic formulas, as tinctures, bitters, massage and body oils, and salves.
These small-batch, organic and 3rd party tested therapeutic formulations are sold directly to the consumer with special attention to educational and inspirational content about healing through Ayurveda and the Endocannabinoid system.
Joanna lives in the pacific NW where she teaches yoga and Ayurvedic wellness classes and retreats, offers cannabis and ayurvedic consulting and counseling, and creates powerful herbal remedies. She strives to balance her life through yoga and mindfulness practices to better fulfill her life’s work of sharing her own experience of healing and helping others.
