ABOUT ELLEMENTA: We create welcoming spaces where women can come together to speak openly about cannabis wellness. Cannabis has been used to enhance women’s health for centuries. Ellementa organizes Gatherings in over 50 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 for women/female-identified only. At each monthly Ellementa Gathering, we’ll explore why cannabis and CBD are so compatible with the human body and answer all of your questions. (If we don’t know the answers, we’ll find them!)

 GUEST EXPERT… Dede Osborn, MA, Dip CS strongly believes in the education and empowerment of older adults to make their own decisions about the care of their own bodies with the objective to live palliative, engaged, healthy lives of flourishing and well-being. Dede is not an advocate for cannabis use. She is an advocate for education and choice. She originally began to focus on the potential of medical cannabis to relieve suffering when her daughter was diagnosed with Glioblastoma in 2015 (she passed in Jan. 2018). Her options for pain relief were needlessly limited by her research protocol. Her mother was using two fentanyl patches for pain before she passed with dementia and with no other options allowed for pain relief in nursing care. Dede became determined to inform herself of the potential of medicinal marijuana to eliminate suffering, and especially to help in the aches and pains of aging and the potential to cure disease. Dede has been a leadership coach and business consultant and was cofounder of a consulting firm in Mexico City for the 15 years she lived there. She is currently completely focused on learning about the marijuana industry, curating emerging cannabis research and making that information available to all who seek it. is a website that provides categorized recent research, links, blog, publications and anecdotal experience as well as options for personal coaching and guidance for all in need.

YOUR LOCAL LEADER… This Gathering discussion will be led by, Ellementa Gathering Leader Wendy Elkin. Wendy Elkin is certified as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, as well as in Functional Nutrition and Transformational Coaching. She is also currently studying under Dr. Dustin Sulak, a well-known cannabis medicine physician, to learn about medical applications of cannabis and the most effective and efficient ways to incorporate this tool into the healing protocol. Her philosophy is that you cannot completely heal from chronic health issues without finding the root causes, both physiological and emotional/spiritual; A holistic approach, inclusive of using medical marijuana as a tool in the toolbox, promotes optimal health. Wendy also has special training in using therapeutic nutrition approaches with people touched by cancer and continues to learn and research along the path. She is an avid supporter and advocate of using medical cannabis in combination with nutrition and emotional healing for a well-rounded approach. Whether or not you are receiving conventional treatment for your issue, she believes these tools integrated or stand-alone are very powerful. She is currently involved in searching for ways to use her skills in partnership with people in the cannabis industry to start educating people about the powerful results of “getting to the root” and using ancestral tools such as cannabis to regain our health as a human race.
