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 bodywork.
Come learn about and share your experiences with using cannabis in conjunction with bodywork! Whether we're talking about massage, cupping, reiki, acupuncture, or other bodywork modalities, cannabis can be a great compliment to these therapies. Come join us and massage therapist Alexis Smith to talk about the possibilities, as well as learn how to make your own infused massage oil.
We'll answer 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
Cannabis has been used to enhance women’s health for centuries. 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!
