This Month’s Topic: Women, Cannabis & Pain Management for Cancer
Are you or a loved one in pain?
We may be experiencing pain and yet suffer in silence. Or we know someone in pain, and we want to offer them a healthier, safe alternative to opioids.
Learn how cannabis and CBD, can be beneficial to our health and wellbeing and offer us relief from inflammation and pain.
We’ll talk about the different ways to use THC and CBD, and how they interact with our bodies and brains – and each other.
Learn about our Endocannabinoid Systems and some of the science behind why cannabis and CBD can be really good for our health.
Ellementa meets monthly to bring women together to learn about cannabis for health, wellness, self-care and caregiving. This is a non-consumption, educational event for women/female-identified only. We create welcoming spaces where women can come together to speak openly about cannabis wellness.
