It's certainly time to get educated and empowered around the use of cannabis.
Since the legalization of cannabis in many states, you may have become curious about how to access and safely use cannabis.

For each webinar, I will be in conversation with a cannabis expert on a particular topic.

Webinar Topic 1: Cannabis 101: What? When? How? Why?
Monday, July 16th, 6-7 pm
SPECIAL GUEST: Rebecca Byars
Let's begin with the basics.
- What is cannabis and what are the benefits of using it?
- How and where does a person purchase it?
- Why does it help reduce pain, anxiety, depression, digestive symptoms, nausea and insomnia, etc.?
- How does a person figure out what form and dosage is best?
- We will also discuss a variety of products, just so participants get a sense of what's out there and the various applications for various products.

Webinar Topic 2: Cannabis and Nutrition: A Synergistic Combination for Stress Relief
Monday, July 23, 6-7 pm.
SPECIAL GUEST: Eloise Theisen, AGPCNP-BC
During this conversation, we will be discussing how cannabis and nutrition can work together to bring ease.
It is easy to reach for addictive substances during times of stress.
According to Theisen, many people reach for alcohol as a way to escape their mid-life crises and the challenges of perimenopause and menopause (note: this conversation will not focus solely on women's health).
Is cannabis use any different?
How can we influence the endo-cannabinoid system with a combination of nutrition and cannabis to bring us back into a place of relief and hormonal balance? (We will learn about how the release of internally produced cannabinoids can help to regulate mood, memory and appetite).
Of particular interest: Can people in recovery use cannabis safely?
This is an important conversation, and we'd love for you to join us.
