CBD is everywhere. And visibility is only growing. We are hearing about it on the radio, the news, and all over social media. We are seeing it in grocery stores, vitamin shops, health food stores, and dispensaries. But, what is this so called miracle product? In defined, scientific terms, what is CBD and what are the effects we can reasonably expect? With CBD widely available in brick and mortar stores as well as online, hell even Amazon, how do we choose what products are safe and right for us? What should we be aware of? Is it safe? Is it legal? What is the best way to take it?
Join me as I sit down with Bridget Gavin, Curriculum Director and Founder of Symbiosis Cannabis Education to have a broad conversation about CBD. We address all of these questions and more. We also address common misconceptions about CBD and ultimately empower listeners to feel confident in their purchasing decisions.
Bridget Gavin is the Founder of Symbiosis Cannabis Education based in Eugene, Oregon. She began her foray into Cannabis during Oregon’s medical era working as a farm hand for the regenerative cannabis farm, Bloom Hill Botanicals. In early 2015, Gavin set out to expand her knowledge of Cannabis and so began her 4 year journey in Retail Cannabis. Working at multiple organizations in diverse roles such as budtending and purchasing, she had continuous exposure to the full gamut of cannabis products, their production methods, and uses. Working directly with myriad Cannabis companies, she had hands-on experience that equipped her with an education not easily rivaled. In early 2019, armed with a unique expertise, Bridget decided to funnel her knowledge into creating a curriculum for Cannabis professionals as well as knowledge-hungry consumers. Bridget is dedicated to people taking health into their own hand and hopes to further enable this by providing clarity about the safe use of Cannabis.
