Expand your Entourage: Formulating Cannabis with Other Herbs
April 21, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm
270 Battery Street
Burlington, VT 05401 United States
Join Stephanie Boucher for this workshop focusing on using medicinal herbs in combination with cannabis!
Proponents of cannabis often talk about the “entourage effect,” referring to the synergistic action of the many compounds present in the Cannabis plant.
If we expand our horizons to consider synergies with other plants as well, even more possibilities for healing come to light.
Herbalists around the world have historically combined Cannabis with other herbs in creating natural remedies – in fact, prior to prohibition, this was a common practice in US pharmacies as well.
In this presentation, we will explore the history and potential benefits of such an approach, as well as some important considerations to keep in mind when designing a holistic herbal formula containing cannabis. Participants will help create and take home a compound hemp-based topical.
