Healing Without the High: Using CBD in Your Everyday Wellness Routine


with Stacy Moore

Calendar Next session starts Nov 9, 2019 at 1 pm, runs for 1 week

When our bodies get depleted we are no longer able to produce enough of the cannabinoids responsible for keeping the mind and body in a state of equilibrium known as “health.” Luckily, the hemp plant is full of naturally-occurring cannabinoids that can help the body bring itself back into balance again. In this class you will explore how CBD interacts with the body, discover different extraction and delivery methods, and find out how to select the right product for you. You’ll also create a personalized blend of essential oils and CBD for a therapeutic roll-on to take home with you and enjoy CBD infused treats while you learn. No discounts.
