Let’s Talk About: How to Talk to Your Doctor About Cannabis and CBD

Join us at Ellementa Women’s Wellness Gatherings for empowering knowledge & conversation!

This month, we’re talking about incorporating cannabis or CBD into your personal wellness routine is a personal decision, but how do you talk to your medical doctors and therapists about it.

Join us for a frank discussion with a doctor, a therapist, and a cannabis patient advocate to learn how best to approach and educate your doctor about cannabis.

"When my best friend told her doctor that she was using cannabis instead of her opiate prescriptions to manage her chronic pain he set her up with an addictions counselor! Instead of educating himself about cannabis and helping her get the best care and medicine she needed, he fell back into outdated modes of thinking.Public perception about cannabis has started to change, but our doctors and therapists are still in the dark about the medicinal benefits.It really is up to us to educate our doctors and therapists as many were never given access to the extensive research done on the plant in their med school years." - Melissa Pierce

Join our local organizer, Melissa Pierce and Therapist Anne Shragal MA, NCC, LPC on Wednesday, March 27th as we discuss how to talk to your doctors about cannabis so that they will listen and help.

We look forward to seeing you! #FeelBetter
