Bioavailability & Botanical Medicine with Dr. Swathi

March 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PST

In this session with Dr. Swathi, we’ll learn about bioavailability – the ability of a drug or substance to be absorbed and used by the body.

About this Event

How much of your plant medicine are you actually getting when you take it? Not as much as you think!

Whether its cannabis, CBD, or other botanicals, figuring out how much to take can be hard – but figuring out how much of the natural medicine you’re actually getting can be harder.

In this session with Dr. Swathi, we’ll learn about bioavailability – the ability of a drug or substance to be absorbed and used by the body.

If the amount of medicine available to your body is a fraction of what you take in, how can it work? What can you do to make it more effective?

Dr. Swathi will talk about the different ways cannabis or CBD can be formulated and how they each could work in your body.

She’ll also explain which formulation type works better for certain conditions.

This popular guest on “The Ellementa Show” is not to be missed! Dr. Swathi makes it easy to understand the science behind plant medicine so you can make better purchasing decisions when you’re seeking the benefits of plant medicine.

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday, April 4 at 12pm PT/3pm ET for this dynamic and informative show!
