Whether you’re using cannabis recreationally or as medical marijuana, this guide will give you a better understanding of how this potent herb has brought health and healing to humanity both historically and in our modern world. In this Advanced Herbal Folio, we’ll dive into the science behind the plant, covering a selection of the many conditions cannabis treats and why it works. We’ll move beyond the theory into the practical realm of how to make and use medicines, both intoxicating and non-mind-altering, using cannabis. We’ll spend time in the garden, digging into the conditions cannabis needs to thrive and what to look for when you’re gathering plant material to make your own medicines. With that solid grounding in cannabis, we’ll explore ways to incorporate cannabis, hemp, and marijuana in the home safely and effectively as well as how to care for your animal friends with this versatile plant. We’ll also take a look at the historical uses of cannabis and how it can be included in modern shamanic, spiritual, or magickal practice to give you a well-rounded understanding of how cannabis fits into the fabric of humanity.

Join us for an informative journey through the healing and practical uses for Cannabis in this first edition of The Practical Herbalist’s Advanced Herbal Folio series.
