About This Webinar

Medical marijuana has been legalized in more than half the US. Ten states are expected to sanction adult use cannabis by 2019 and Canada recently approved cannabis across the country. Consumers have questions about the plant — how it works, what are the delivery formats, and what are it’s health applications. Learn how cannabis can be integrated with other holistic modalities to optimize health and wellness.
