Win a Book!

Ellementa is partnering this month with Workman Publishing to share A Woman’s Guide to Cannabis by Nikki Furrer, a handbook demystifying the world of cannabis, whether it’s being used for pain relief, a moment of calm, or sheer enjoyment. We will be giving away a copy of the book at this Gathering!


We create welcoming spaces where women can come together to speak openly about cannabis wellness. Cannabis has been used to enhance women’s health for centuries. Ellementa organizes Gatherings in over 50 cities connecting women to cannabis experts and brands. Learn about cannabis for health, wellness, self-care, and caregiving. These are non-consumption, educational monthly events for women/female-identified only. 

At each monthly Ellementa Gathering, we’ll explore why cannabis and CBD are so compatible with the human body and answer all of your questions. (If we don’t know the answers, we’ll find them!)
