Cannabis has been a component of the Materia Medica of Traditional Chinese Medicine for over 2000 years. Let’s expand our understanding of how Cannabis interacts with us from a different perspective! In this workshop we will learn about the plant, sativa vs indica and the endocannabinoid system. Applying a Yin - Yang understanding to the therapeutic effects of this ancient herb can provide a deeper understanding of not only the “feeling” associated but what symptoms are appropriate for specific varieties.
