CBD: Myths and Realities
CBD oil is the new cure for everything, and now everyone and their brother wants to sell you some...
We need to talk...
So I hosted a few webinars on the topic... but those are over now so we've put this together into a nice little mini-course where you can go and watch the recordings.
It's called CBD; Dispelling Myths and Exposing Truths! and you can get it over at Heartstone Online.
Our goal is to dispel some of the common myths in the vernacular surrounding CBD and the processes for making it and get informed on whether this medicine if is right for you.
First, you'll learn the differences between mass produced plants in the agricultural model of growing, and the horticultural model of fewer, more well-tended plants.
Next we will explore the current industrial standard extracting methods, their benefits and drawbacks and how misleading some of the vocabulary such as “full spectrum” can be.
What you’ll Learn in Part 1
- How “whole plant” labeling is misleading
- What really is “Full spectrum” and is it really full spectrum?
- Isolated CBD oil is reductionist and not the best medicine
- All the essentials you’ll need to be an informed consumer
- Fun facts to impress or annoy your friends with
What you'll learn in Part 2
- What is the proper dose for most conditions?
- How is dosing calculated? (yay math!)
- What are the drawbacks around "CBD products" on the market and the research regarding its efficacy?
- And so much more...
Tammi Sweet loves to teach. It’s her superpower. She has a magical ability to connect with almost anyone when teaching and help them understand complex material.
For over 30 years, Tammi has shared her gift of teaching at various colleges, massage schools and herbal schools throughout the country. Her background in physiology makes her an invaluable resource to developing herbalists, massage therapists and anyone wanting to care for their bodies alike, who want to deepen their foundational knowledge of the body.
In addition to her physiology expertise, Tammi is also a practitioner and teacher of herbal medicine. She is deeply influenced by her studies with accomplished herbalists, including Rosemary Gladstar, Pam Montgomery, Brooke Medicine Eagle,Tom Brown, Jr. and especially Stephen Buhner’s pioneering work on the heart as an organ of perception.
In 2007, Tammi set out to “combine all the things I love into one curriculum and teach whatever I wanted in ways that made sense--on my own terms.” So she and her partner Kris Miller launched the Heartstone Center for Earth Essentials.
At Heartstone, Tammi and Kris run two residential programs, an Herbal Apprenticeship and Journey of the Heart. They also offer online courses that integrate physiology and plant medicine with Tammi’s love of teaching, such as her signature course Anatomy & Physiology for Herbalists.
Tammi’s vision is for Heartstone to co-create a space with the land, where people can come "home," take refuge and find the sacred both on the land and within themselves and facilitate healing. When not teaching, Tammi loves to spend time alone and ‘recharge’ by exploring the land, writing, and hiking.
