Women, Cannabis and Mood Balancing

It's certainly time to get educated and empowered around the use of cannabis. My friend and local cannabis educator Laurie Light will be bringing cannabis experts into discussion at my house on Sunday, April 15th. I'm so excited to learn! Want to join us?


We'll be making room for 30 guests.


Ellementa SF East Bay: Women, Cannabis and Mood Balancing

Join Ellementa and our panel of special guests as we launch our new monthly educational series for women to learn about cannabis in the SF East Bay. Together we will dive into the science of how CBD and THC can help balance a woman’s mood, often without any psychoactive side effects.

Learn about how cannabis works on the human brain with Eloise Theisen, RN, MSN, AGPCNP-BC as she educates on the Endocannabinoid System and effective cannabis therapies for women of all ages. Chelsey McKrill of Kikoko (look for their featured article “Is Marijuana the New Merlot?” in this month’s Oprah magazine), will share how their low dose cannabis-infused teas are changing the way women consume cannabis for mood balancing, supportive health and wellness.

Set in the beautiful garden of our host, Certified Nutrition Educator, Laura Halpin, you won’t want to miss this premier SF East Bay garden tea party gathering.

Hats and spring dresses encouraged (but not necessary).


Address to be provided upon RSVP. This event is happening in Walnut Creek.

Ellementa meets monthly to bring women together with experts and brands to learn about cannabis for health, wellness, self-care and caregiving. This is a non-consumption, educational event for women/female-identified exclusively. We create welcoming spaces where women can come together to speak openly about cannabis.
