Why Medical Cannabis Education?
I was lonely.
As I began my journey with Medical Cannabis I was lonely.
I can see that now. Google search was the only place I was asking my questions. Eventually, I connected here and there with a few people in the Medical Community. I found an amazing and informative Facebook group. I also found many terrible information sites and groups. I mean like terrible. Medical Cannabis patients deserve respect as for many of us Cannabis became a last resort medication to try. So you can imagine the kind of pain or symptoms that many of us were dealing with. There are so many complexities to dis-ease and pain is often highly involved. When we are in high pain it can become very difficult to make decisions. You get emotionally and mentally exhausted from your dis-ease or pain.
I created my Medical Cannabis Services, to try and fill a gap in the system. Often, after all your “active” Cancer treatment is done, as patients we feel like we are just out there on our own to worry about the cancer coming back, worry about pain and side-effects from our meds. I navigated the world differently after cancer. For example, I realised how important support groups were. It is a huge let down after treatment and it is when depression can kick in. I found that the same thing happened with Medical Cannabis. As I got started, I tried talking to pharmacists and they actually (at that time) could not answer my questions. All they could say was “we just don’t know enough”. I needed to feel cared for. I needed to know if there were contraindications to Tamoxifen(which I was to be on for 5-10 years to keep my cancer from returning). I was navigating this solo, as I wasn’t sure about telling friends or family that I was using Medical Cannabis. How was I going to navigate stigma? How do I talk to my teens about it? How can I get optimal results from this medication? Yes. So so many questions.
This is why I am here to help. I have navigated this process myself, and know that it’s daunting and overwhelming to try to tackle it alone. I have been trained and I am insured, and I want to help you on your journey. You will feel more confident with using this medicine when you know you have the support and someone to talk it all through with.

TOKE and RESTORE
I am excited for you to join me on this journey to deepen your Restorative practice. This unique class is ideal if you love Restorative Yoga and Cannabis. Let’s put them together, together!!
Here is what you need to know:
-you need Zoom and wifi (download before the class)
-Yoga Mat or Rug, blanket, towel
-comfy, warm clothes, blanket
-pillows, cushions from the couch, bolsters, blocks, books or folded blankets, eye pillow or eye mask. Imagine how you would support your poses in class and find things around the house that work!
- Chill music, essential oils if you like, a quiet restful space
-choose your preferred method of ingestion and prepare to use it. We will aim for it to take effect by 8:15 pm, so you can vape/smoke while on the call, OR take your oil beforehand aiming for it to be in effect by 8:15 pm.
-set your intention for your practice (reduce stress, sleep better, calm a busy mind, physical pain, deep spiritual connection, remaining present, dreaming)
-intentionally, mindfully choose your strain - we can talk more about this in the class each week. Please feel free to reach out if you would like to help with this.
Upon our opening circle, I am hoping you will be up for sharing your intention and the cannabis strain and method of ingestion you have chosen. Bring a journal to your mat, so you can jot notes down, as we will be learning from each other. I will also be sharing tips and tricks (from an MCE perspective) to optimize your cannabis medicine. Upon finishing our 75-minute practice we will have an “optional” share! It will be wonderful to share our experience with each other! OR, if you are feeling super sleepy and need to crawl into bed, that works too!
