Ellementa Phoenix: Women, Sex, Libido and Cannabis

May 30 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm MST

Join us at Ellementa Phoenix – a chance for women to talk openly about cannabis for health and wellness with other women and experts.

According to recent scientific research, people who use cannabis have more sex. Cannabis and CBD are also now being used in a variety of products related to sexual health. Learn the facts and talk frankly with other women about sex and libido — with and without cannabis.

We’re offering a Special for May: Take a Mom to Ellementa Month! Purchase one ticket and get a mom you know in at no extra charge. It’s a Two for One. If you know a mom who could benefit from better information about cannabis for health and wellness, this is the month to bring her!

Ellementa meets monthly to bring women together to learn about cannabis for health, wellness, self-care and caregiving. This is a non-consumption, educational event for exclusively for WOMEN/FEMALE-IDENTIFIED. We create welcoming spaces where women can come together to speak openly about cannabis wellness.
