High on Healing: Uzma’s Journey from Opioid Fallout to BloomHigher


Welcome, everyone, to an enlightening episode featuring a trailblazer in the realm of plant medicine and holistic healing – Uzma Zakir RPh, the visionary founder of bloomHigher.

At bloomHigher, Uzma's mission is to broaden our understanding, acceptance, and harness the healing potential of plant medicine. With a decade-long background as a community pharmacist, Uzma witnessed the devastating impact of opioids on communities, families, and healthcare practitioners. This experience ignited her journey into natural and alternative healing modalities.

In 2015, she became a dispensary pharmacist at the Compassionate Care Center in Bethel, CT, and later served as the Director of Outreach for the Botanist, where her role as an indispensable resource and educator significantly influenced the Connecticut cannabis industry.

Uzma's dedication extends beyond corporate confines. This year alone, she has been a featured speaker at UCONN, xpoCanna, NECANN, the National Cannabis Festival in Washington DC, and the Cannabis Science Conference in Providence, RI. Her influence resonates through a popular monthly webinar that empowered individuals until she ventured into new frontiers.

A cum laude graduate from St. John's University College of Pharmacy, Uzma delved into cancer pain management research at the onset of the opioid epidemic. Today, she continues to pioneer the integration of internal medicine with cannabinoid therapeutics at Ultimate Solutions Medical Spa in Stamford, CT, alongside Dr. Jennifer Jose and Dr. Denise Green.

Get ready to be inspired as Uzma Zakir shares her wealth of knowledge on the healing benefits of the cannabis plant, empowering individuals to make brave choices in their journey towards holistic well-being. Join us as we delve into the intersection of plant medicine, community empowerment, and the transformative potential of embracing alternative healing modalities.
