Tuesday, June 25 7-9pm Cannabis Infusions, Tinctures and Teas
Wednesday, June 26th 7-9pm Cannabis Topicals
Discover the power of cannabis extracts, infusions, and topicals that you can make for yourself in your own home!
Cannabis is now legal in Canada but extracts, infused oils, tinctures, and topicals are still not legal until at least October 2019. We have the right to make our own extracts, infusions, edibles and topicals. There are few "classes" available in Toronto to teach people how to properly make these products, and the Internet and YouTube has so much disinformation that it’s difficult for people to navigate and truly educate themselves. This workshop endeavours to bridge this gap, and create a safe space to educate people on how to work with their medicine.
In each of these hands-on sessions, Charlene Freedom C.N.H.P. will give an overview of the appropriate contemporary and traditional uses of cannabis as an herb, including the many ways the plant can be used for healing the spirit.
Cannabis Infusions, Tinctures and Teas
Charlene will be offering a cannabis infusions workshop teaching how to make cannabis-infused oils, butters, and vegetable glycerine tinctures. These infusions can be used for creating your own edibles, and the infused oils can be used for making topical preparations.
She will cover the basics on how to prepare your cannabis for infusions, how to decarboxylate to activate the THC molecules, infusion times and temperatures, best infusion methods, and straining your cannabis. Charlene will discuss the differences of infusing butters, oils, and tinctures, and will cover dosage for daily use.
Cannabis Topicals with Charlene Freedom
Come out to join us for a workshop on Cannabis Topicals with Charlene Freedom. She will be discussing the various uses of cannabis topical products like cannabis creams, massage oils, balms, body butters, and holistic bath therapies as treatments for different health conditions. Charlene will share a mini demo on how to create your own cannabis-infused products from infused oils!
