~ Pain…what is it good for?
Absolutely everything. Many of our clients come in with acute or chronic pain. What better way to assist their healing than to have a deeper understanding of the mechanism and benefit of pain? We will explore the pain pathway from the origin at the source, all the way up to the recognition in the brain. From here we will discuss the latest findings in pain research, the myriad of methods to interrupt the pain pathway (Including herbs!), how these methods work and finally, their indications and contraindications.

~ Understanding the Healing Power of Inflammation
Inflammation is one of our primary defenses in the body and is a major cause/contributing factor to almost all illness and disease. How can this be so? If you’re asking that question, come and take an in-depth look at the entire process. It will help you make informed decisions concerning when and if you need to alter the process. We will look at how and why inflammation is beneficial, when it is not beneficial, and finally we will discuss an anti-inflammatory lifestyle which includes our friends, the herbs.

~ Materia Medica of Cannabis
Have you been wanting to understand the uses of Cannabis? Have you heard it can cure almost everything (it IS helpful in many situations and it can’t cure everything.)? What’s the deal with CBD oil? Well please come with these questions and more to the workshop on the Materia Medica of Cannabis.
Our class will begin with the not well-known or publicized internal Endogenous Cannabinoid System, its physiology, functions and why its proper functioning is crucial to health and underlies many diseases.
We will then move into discussing the Materia medica of the Cannabis plant; starting with a little history and botany of the plant. Growing considerations will also be covered so you can ask the proper questions of your growers. Since this beloved plant cannot cure everything, proper uses including preparation and dose considerations will also be covered. We will spend considerable time on the latest science regarding the mechanism of action within the body so we can understand WHY certain strains are beneficial and why certain strains can exacerbate the problem. We will answer question about CBD oil, what it is good for and when you actually need THC. Finally, we will discuss “right relationship” with this master plant and brainstorm ways to assist clients in creating ways to honor this sacred and healing plant.
The information from this workshop will make you a better-informed consumer when you enter the world of medical cannabis.
