The countdown to legalization is on! Curious about cannabis?

Trees Island Grown Dispensary – a local craft cannabis retailer, will be hosting a trio of educational events at their flagship location on Yates Street, appropriately named, ‘Higher Learning.’

These events will shed light on understanding how to confidently use cannabis and how to integrate cannabis into your lifestyle.

The best part? These events are FREE!

“We look forward to the day when the positive effects of cannabis are recognized worldwide, and we believe this day is rapidly approaching,” says the company.

Trees has deep roots on the island, with seven stores between Victoria and Nanaimo.

The dispensary is active in the community, who employ attentive and educated budtenders (essentially gentlefolk with quaint herb gardens)  who are happy to advise customers on products and safe consumption on informed and healthy decisions.

First event: Learn about Cannabis and Health

The first event in the Higher Learning series – Cannabis and Health, is scheduled for Thursday, October 4th.

The intimate seminar will focus on the effects of cannabis on your body, its physical and mental effects, and what is right for you.

The event will be catered by the delicious, local and community driven, Café Bliss.

Speakers for the event are; Sarah Lovegrove (Rn., BscN, BA, MA) and Andrew McLachlan of McLachlan Farms, who are both well known cannabis advocates, educators, and consultants in the industry.

Second and third events to focus on safe consumption and more

The 2nd and 3rd seminars will focus on safe consumption, managing pain through cannabis – including a discussion around the movement to use cannabis as a replacement for opioids. Whoa!

“We hope to serve as an example that cannabis-based businesses can have a positive effect on both the local community and the local economy.”

Doors to the dispensary will open at 6 p.m. and all three events will finish at 8 p.m.
