More than 70 years of prohibition has not stopped people from utilizing Cannabis as a powerful and effective medicine.
As the legal medicinal cannabis industry gears up in Canada, people of all ages are turning to this ancient medicine in the hopes that cannabis can manage symptoms and disease processes without the debilitating side-effects of some pharmaceutical drugs.
In this workshop we will cover the basics of cannabis as medicine, bust persistent cannabis myths, and dig into a few of the health concerns where cannabis really excels as a plant medicine.

With the recent change in Canadian laws, Jeananne has been able to turn her herbal attention to teaching about the healing benefits of cannabis.
