The Jewish Federation Connecting with Community welcomes Maya Richards, Training and Outreach Manager at Berkshire Roots.

Since legalization, there has been a lot of information and misinformation circulating about Cannabis products and the emerging industry. This presentation will introduce topics related to Cannabis and how people are using the plant-based medicine to help alleviate certain symptoms. Maya will discuss what gives cannabis its therapeutic properties, the consumption methods, and what the experience of visting a dispensary is like in MA.

There will be opportunites to ask questions througout the presentation and during the Q&A at the end.

This free program is part of the Federation’s Connecting With Community Series and will be followed by a kosher hot lunch. Lunch is a $2 suggested donation for adults over 60 years of age or $7 for all others. Advance reservations are required for lunch and can be made by calling (413) 442-2200 before 9 a.m. on the day of the program.
