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.
Join us at this Ellementa Women's Wellness Gathering for empowering knowledge & conversation!
This month, we’re talking about cannabis and CBD for Beauty and Self-Care.
--> What does cannabis have to do with beauty or self-care?
--> What benefits does cannabis or CBD in beauty products have?
--> How does one integrate cannabis or CBD into a self-care ritual?
--> What are the best cannabis- or CBD-infused beauty products on the market?
We'll answer these questions and more at this Gathering.
If you want to gain better knowledge about what is in the cannabis plant and how those compounds interact with your body so you can identify what you need to feel better, this Gathering is for YOU.
Learn from our Ellementa Leaders, our Guest Experts and our Trusted Brands at every Ellementa Women’s Wellness Gathering. Bring a girlfriend or any woman you know who can benefit from these inspiring events.
We look forward to seeing you! You deserve to #FeelBetter.

We bring you trusted experts to help answer your questions.
While battling several chronic illnesses with cannabis, Jennifer Noska found cannabis to be the only thing that improved all her health issues immensely. She has since removed several neurologists and doctors and no longer needs prescriptions.
During the transition, Jennifer began fostering a relationship with the company that makes the cannabis products that she depends on daily, Proof Extracts. She now works in sales for Proof Extracts and enjoys educating and helping others locate this great medicine.
Jennifer is excited to be a woman in the cannabis community. Together they are helping others educate and medicate themselves with cannabis.
Michelle first realized her passion for yoga while taking classes at a local gym in 2008. Her appreciation for the strengthening, yet calming results of the practice convinced her quickly that yoga and holistic health & wellness would be her life path from then on. Shortly after beginning her journey with yoga, Michelle chose to enroll at Modesto Junior College, eventually graduating with honors, earning an Associate of Science Degree in Athletic Training / Sports Medicine. In 2015 she earned her 200-hour certification (RYT-200) from the Art of Yoga teacher-training program in Modesto, CA and has been teaching private and group yoga and meditation classes since 2015.
Michelle’s foray into the benefits of cannabis began in 2015 when she received her first CA Medicinal Marijuana Recommendation to help with her own anxiety issues. Michelle remembers her first experiences in an MMJ dispensary and the overwhelming feeling of ignorance with what to do with all the choices! Through patience and time, Michelle was able to learn the finer points of self-dosing and was thrilled when the opportunity arrived to take a job at a local Modesto dispensary in the summer of 2016. Thanks to extra training from Dennis Hill, career biochemist and local two-time cancer survivor, it became Michelle’s joy to specialize in patients seeking natural cancer treatments, as well as first-timers to the dispensary and those with many questions about the physiology of the human Endocannabinoid system (ECS).
Although Michelle is not currently drawing a paycheck in the cannabis industry, she remains an enthusiastically engaged advocate for medicinal cannabis and continues to seek opportunities to destigmatize its use and to use her knowledge to help others in need. Michelle uses an enmeshment of several methods of holistic practices to guide her students on their own personal journey to inner peace and greater overall wellness. What Michelle loves most about working with people is allowing those with fears to embrace their own personal journey to inner peace and harmony among body, mind, and spirit.
This Gathering discussion will be led by, Ellementa Gathering Leader AnnaMaria Riedinger
As a 60-year-old woman, a wife, mother, and grandmother, AnnaMaria Riedinger has personally experienced the value of the cannabis plant and how it has improved her arthritis, sleep quality and overall wellness. Her contribution to Central Valley locals is to make a difference in the daily lives of women through building a community of passionate cannabis consumers, patients, and educators to take part in a new sophisticated dialogue about smart cannabis choices!
