The Edmonton Herb Club is pleased to partner with Herbalist & Educator Jeananne Lang and bring Cannabis As Medicine back to Edmonton in February 2019.

Cannabis, like any other herb, has a long history of traditional use as food, clothing, & medicine. With legalization slated for Fall 2018, more and more people have questions about cannabis-whether it help certain health conditions, the why's and hows of how it may do that, and how best to access it and use it.

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 Medicine for Health Practitioners & Herbalists. Saturday Feb 2, 9:30-5pm

LOCATION: Roots On Whyte Conference Room, Old Strathcona, Edmonton, AB.
INSTRUCTOR: Jeananne Laing, Master Herbalist

**Edmonton's Cannabis as Medicine in November 2017 filled within a matter of days with an extensive waitlist. Interested in attending in 2019? Register today!**


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 past 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.

In 2017 Jeananne completed the Clinical Cannabinoid Medicine program at TMCI Global, The Medical Cannabis Institute and LIFT's Retail Cannabis Training course. She is currently a Cannabis Educator at Harvest Medicine Clinic in Calgary and spends a good portion of her time travelling & educating on Cannabis as Medicine to Health professionals across Canada.
