Six Nations Dispensary Raises Cannabis Awareness for Seniors
Friday, March 23, 2018.
Ohsweken (Six Nations) – In another first for the territory, the dispensary Green Health for Six is raising public awareness on the health benefits of indigenous cannabis.
“Today we are hosting a workshop specifically for our elders and those who care for them,” says dispensary owner, Jeff Hawk.
The workshop, Medicinal Cannabis: Healthcare for Seniors, aims to take the mystery out of the plant itself. Participants will learn about the different active ingredients of the plant and what ailments they can treat.
“Our older and elderly customers have told us how much cannabis has transformed their lives. But it’s still a learning curve. ”
The event is in coordination with the launch of Mukwa Botanicals, a new line of medicinal products from Alderville First Nation. Green Health for Six is introducing the product line with an opportunity to learn first hand about their benefits.
“It’s about a whole lot more than THC and smoking. CBD is actually more popular for many seniors,” ” says Green Health for Six manager, Aaron Sault. “We want to help them be as informed as possible for their own self-care.”
The workshop runs today from 2:30-5:30 at Yogi’s Barn, 2318 Chiefswood Rd. Oswheken (at Chiefswood & 6th Line).
