Ellementa Melrose (Boston): CBD & Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction

November 20, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST

Let’s Talk About: CBD & Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)

Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) is a program that offers secular, intensive mindfulness training to assist people with stress, anxiety, depression and pain. Since many use CBD and cannabis to help with these same issues, imagine what combining both modalities could achieve!

At this Ellementa Gathering, you’ll learn:

~~ How to incorporate MBSR practices into your life for more calm.

~~ How cannabis and CBD can be administered to address anxiety and stress.

~~ Why combining MBSR practices with cannabis or CBD could increase effectiveness.

Bring any of your questions to this Ellementa Gathering. We’re a community of women, like you, seeking better health and wellness through natural plant remedies.

If you are looking to understand how cannabis interacts with your body and brain and want to improve your health and wellness or simply feel better, this Gathering is for YOU.

Ellementa organizes Gatherings in over 65 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 exclusively set up for women/female-identified. We create welcoming spaces where women can come together to speak openly about cannabis wellness.

At each monthly Ellementa Gathering, we explore different aspects of cannabis to empower you with knowledge. If we don’t know the answers, we’ll help you find them!

P.S. If you’ve never been to an Ellementa Gathering before, our Gatherings are very different from other cannabis events out there. This is not a lecture, this is not a business networking event. This is a vibrant, exciting, dynamic and personal sharing of wisdom and experiences. Join us at any Ellementa Women’s Wellness Gathering for empowering knowledge & candid conversation!
