Healing with Entheogens: Reintegrating Cannabis into the Herbal Medicine Compendium


Join Sarah Russo for an exploration of how cannabis has not only revolutionized the way we view herbal medicine, but also gives us a potent opportunity to explore our relationship with the botanical kingdom. This class will examine how we can deepen our connection with cannabis and other plants in order to integrate their lessons into our daily lives. Sarah will talk about cannabis as herbal medicine, from an herbalist perspective and explore potential synergies with other botanical allies.

This lecture will go beyond the powerful healing potential of cannabis and discuss her unique wisdom for our current era, how she has evolved with us over time, and the ways that she impacts social justice and invites us to question the culture of capitalism and consumerism. We will also explore how a healthy lifestyle can impact the endocannabinoid system and give us pathways to learn more about our own bodies. And finally, we will look at how cannabis has strongly inspired herbal medicine research, the blind spots in botanical medicine investigation, and the mysteries of the plant that science will never fully elucidate.
