Tali developed a simple introductory cannabis education class consisting of a 60-minute lecture on the healing powers of cannabis. The class is followed by a Q&A session and supported by a senior-focused “cannabis 101” guide. This class is designed to empower the community and to answer questions, concerns, and curiosities about cannabis, cannabis science, health, and well-being.
