The Edmonton Herb Club is pleased to partner with Herbalist & Educator Jeananne Lang bringing us Cannabis As Medicine this November. Cannabis, like any other herb, has a long history of traditional use as food, clothing, & medicine. Let’s leave the reefer madness behind & explore the medicinal aspect of cannabis in a grounded, factual & sensible approach to it’s use for various health conditions.

Cannabis As Medicine is open to anyone–we have two options to join in-just pick which one is the right fit for you!

Cannabis As Medicine: A Herbal Primer. Friday, Nov 17th, 7-9pm.   Everyone Welcome!

More than 70 years of prohibition has not stopped people from utilizing Cannabis as a powerful and effective medicine.

As the legal medicinal cannabis industry gears up in Canada, people of all ages are turning to this ancient medicine in the hopes that they can use cannabis to manage their symptoms and disease processes without the debilitating side-effects of some pharmaceutical drugs.

In this evening workshop, Join Master Herbalist Jeananne Lang as she covers the basics of cannabis as medicine, busts persistent cannabis myths, and digs into a few of the health concerns where cannabis really excels as a medicine.

About our Instructor: Jeananne Laing is a Master and Clinical Herbalist and Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach based in Calgary. Jeananne is co-founder of Lodgepole School, President of the Alberta Herbalists Association and an Alberta representative for the Canadian Council of Herbalists Association.

Jeananne’s interest in Cannabis as medicine began many years ago when she discovered that taking a small amount of marijuana prior to a public speaking project in high school took away debilitating anxiety and allowed her to actually enjoy the task, rather than being paralyzed with fear. With the recent change in Canadian laws, Jeananne has been able to turn her herbal attention to teaching about the healing benefits of cannabis.

Jeananne spends a good portion of her time as a Cannabis Educator at the Harvest Medicine Clinic in Calgary.
