      Ellementa Chicago: CBD for Women's Health

      Let's Talk About: Women's Health - Peri-Menopause, Menopause and Cannabis

      Women have been using cannabis for centuries for everything from aiding with pregnancy, labor and post-partum to uplifting mood and getting better sleep.

      Scientists and doctors are noting that the chemical compounds in cannabis can affect women differently than men - because of our estrogen.

      We need to be talking about this!

      At this Ellementa Gathering, you’ll learn:
      ~~ How estrogen levels impact how cannabis affects you.
      ~~ How cannabis and CBD are being used by women to alleviate peri-menopause and menopause symptoms.
      ~~ How cannabis and CBD are also being used to address specific women’s health issues such as menstrual cramps and endometriosis.
      Bring any of your questions to this Ellementa Gathering. We’re a community of women, like you, seeking better health and wellness through natural plant remedies.
      If you are looking to understand how cannabis interacts with your body and brain and want to improve your health and wellness or simply feel better, this Gathering is for YOU.

      YOUR LOCAL LEADERS… This Gathering discussion will be led by, Ellementa Gathering Leader Melissa Pierce and Linh Huynh

      Melissa Pierce has spent some portion of her life as a filmmaker, life coach, reiki master, computer coder, women‘s rights activist, and corporate mastermind. Currently, she works to enrich women’s lives through her work with Ellementa, which she co-founded.

      Linh Huynh is a freelance graphic designer and event coordinator who uses her former experiences as Ms. Wheelchair Michigan and board member for the Conductive Learning Center to adapt to the needs of her clients. As a first-generation Vietnamese American, she is working towards the destigmatization of cannabis use within the Asian community. Linh believes strongly in empowering others by sharing her experiences in overcoming health obstacles, and uses the knowledge she's gained in healthcare science and culinary arts in order to advocate for the continued acceptance of cannabis in the medical field.

      ABOUT ELLEMENTA: Ellementa organizes Gatherings in over 65 cities connecting women to cannabis experts and brands. Learn about cannabis for health, wellness, self-care, and caregiving.

      These are non-consumption, educational monthly events exclusively set up for women/female-identified. We create welcoming spaces where women can come together to speak openly about cannabis wellness.

      At each monthly Ellementa Gathering, we explore different aspects of cannabis to empower you with knowledge. If we don’t know the answers, we’ll help you find them!

      P.S. If you've never been to an Ellementa Gathering before, our Gatherings are very different from other cannabis events out there. This is not a lecture, this is not a business networking event. This is a vibrant, exciting, dynamic and personal sharing of wisdom and experiences.
