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.

If you are looking to have a healthier sex life, enhanced sexual health, and to simply feel better, this Gathering is for YOU.

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!)




We bring you trusted experts to help answer your questions.
