Canna-curious and cannabis-inclined women are invited to a discussion on consumption methods and alternatives to smoking.
The talk is the third installment of Vancouver’s Ellementa series, a monthly networking and resource event for women interested in cannabis for health and wellness.
Jennyfer Chamberland, a Cannabis Extract and Product Development Specialist, will be guiding this month’s event, as she helps attendees navigate concentrates and vape pens.
“I’m looking to expand the conversation beyond smoking flower and getting high,” Chamberland told Daily Hive, over the phone.
“There are many different compounds in cannabis, different ways of consumption, and different effects.”
Chamberland plans to cover an overview of extracts, consumption methods (with a focus on vapes), the different concerns around legalization and how that will effect concentrates.
The Cannabis Act does not currently allow for extracts come October 17, but the government has stated they will be legalized within a year’s time.
“Even though there is no provision for the next year, I think there is still a lot of research that needs to be done and there is still a lot of progress we can make to develop better products and better standards. And there is a lot of advocacy work to be done to make sure these products are considered,” said Chamberland.
Ellementa is exclusively for females/female-identified due to the personal nature of the programs. It is a monthly event hosted by local leader Camille Ritchie in Vancouver.
