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 Gathering discussion will be led by, Ellementa Gathering Leader Victoria Breakstone
Victoria Breakstone is an elementary school teacher, California licensed private investigator, mother, artist, tutor, health and wellness consultant, and lifelong learner. She is especially passionate about cannabis education and attends many local educational events to further her knowledge. In 2016, Victoria became a Cannabis Wellness Consultant with Octavia Wellness, a senior-focused, cannabis sales and consulting business. She has helped people manage pain, sleep, anxiety, cancer treatments, and other ailments with the use of both CBD and THC. When she doesn’t have the answers, she knows how to connect people so that they can find the help that they need.
Victoria began her own cannabis education journey several years ago when she made the decision to seek alternatives to pharmaceuticals for sleep, hormonal imbalances, and thyroid issues. Despite pushback from her primary care doctor, she continued to independently research options with the use of cannabis in combination with other natural products and lifestyle changes. She has personally experienced the benefits of cannabis and wants to support others in reaching their health and wellness goals.
As an Ellementa Gathering Leader, Victoria looks forward to sharing her journey and insight with other women through education, exploration, and inspiration. In her spare time, she enjoys The Dailey Method barre classes, skiing, movies, live music, dining out, and travel.
