Rethinking Cannabis

An Introduction

Curious about medical cannabis?

Come by St. Christopher’s Anglican Church for a community conversation about the therapeutic uses of cannabis.

This one-hour education session, followed by Q&A, will empower you with the knowledge to make your own informed decisions about cannabis. The conversation covers cannabinoids (THC & CBD), methods of delivery and cannabis for seniors.

Rethinking cannabis is a new faith-based education initiative, using a well-reasoned approach to understanding safe and responsible cannabis use.

Please see the events page for the next workshop or speak with Rev Karen

Opioid Crisis and Cannabis:

The Exit Drug documentary, created by Weedmaps, investigates how cannabis could play a major role in ending the opioid crisis, a public health emergency that kills an average of 115 U.S. citizens a day. According to neuroscientist Dr. Adie Wilson-Poe, cannabis has the potential to significantly improve public health by diminishing our reliance on opioids. The Exit Drug explores the course of opioid addiction, from initial usage (typically after an injury) to drug relapse, and how cannabis could be the solution to reduce harm and promote help.
