Materia Medica: Cannabis.
As herbalists we all know when giving a weed walk in a new place, the richest areas are the transitions zones, the margins, the edges. In this light, we will examine a much maligned, misunderstood and misrepresented plant we have pushed to the margins, Cannabis. It is time for us, the herbalists, to reclaim the proper uses of this medicine in our material medica. Time for us to help educate people about how, when, and why cannabis works (and it’s not a cure for everything!). We will discuss time tested uses of this plant showing positive results, simple medicine making and 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.
Hailey Cohn & Rochelle Baca
Chocolate and Cannabis
CBD Bliss In this intensive, Hailey Cohen and Rochelle Baca will explore the amazing (and delicious!) healing properties of cannabis CBD and chocolate. In this class, participants will learn how to make different herbal infusions, including Cannabis CBD flower oils using stove-top and solar methods. Then these oils and infusions will be transformed into delicious chocolate truffles. Truffles will be made from coconut based fats, so no animal products will be used. This class will also discuss both constituents of CBD & CBD-a and will explain the benefits of eating and topically using CBD oil.
