Ellementa Gatherings are non-consumption events. Ellementa does not condone the consumption of cannabis on the premises of Gatherings. If consumption does take place at the event or any product is obtained at the event that is consumed after, attendees consume at their own risk and fully indemnify Ellementa, Inc. and its stakeholders from any responsibility. Everyone attending this event or other Ellementa events confirm they are 21 years of age or over and fully responsible for their own actions.
If you've never been to an Ellementa Gathering before, you may not know how 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.
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 exclusively. We create welcoming spaces where women can come together to speak openly about cannabis wellness.
At each monthly Ellementa Gathering, we’ll explore different aspects of cannabis to empower you with knowledge. If we don’t know the answers, we’ll find them!
This event accepts refunds until 1 day(s) before the event.
