Cannabis as the Tree of Life: History of Cannabis and Spirituality
Time & Location
About The Event
Happy July Cannabis Professionals!
This month's event will feature a very special presentation on Cannabis as the Tree of Life: History of Cannabis and Spirituality by Brigitte Mars. The reason this event is so special is that we have never had an event that focuses on cannabis and spirituality. The main focus of the group has always been industry, science, and hard data as I feel that there is simply not enough good information and research out there on cannabis. That being said, spirituality and cannabis have gone hand in hand for centuries and is an aspect of our new industry that cannot be overlooked. So let's explore many of the world’s spiritual traditions and the part Cannabis has played in their history!
