What a great class!! Martin is deep in the science of it. I am happy that he stressed whole plant use, and not just CBD on its own. Learned a lot from this class, & very enjoyable.

Really great info. I actually watched while waiting in the dispensary for my order. I was about to buy a 1 for 1 THC to CBD whole plant vape pen. Then because of what I just heard asked if it was made with Propylene Glycol? I will just say thank you for the info. What should 1 to 1 CBD pens be made with instead?

As a newbie CBD user and recently diagnosed Leukemia patient. This is the most informative and well done program regarding the use of CBD in general and specifically in medicine. Martin Lee delivers the information is a very specific non dramatic way that promotes confidence in his extensive background and knowledge. Thank you for the tremendous quality and quantity of information. I will put this on my list of things to watch again and again. I appreciate the professionalism of the speaker and quality of the information presented. The question and answer sessions were also very informative.

Loved this class! Particularly his emphasis on cannabis as part of a holistic wellness plan that could include diet, other herbals, etc.

Excellent as usual. Martin Lee is so knowledgeable and able to share his knowledge in a very understandable way. I strongly believe in whole plant medicine and improving the health of a person, mind and body, which in turn will help to heal their ailments with far less side effects associated with traditional Western medicine. Thank you again Martin for all the work you and your team are doing to continue to educate myself and many others in this ever changing cannabis landscape. And thank you Green Flower. Keep the classes coming! Grateful for the learning experience. Ann RN

Wow, what a great session. Though i consider myself to be more of. "Recreational" user of cannabis, some close friends have always insisted that any use is medicinal and beneficial, and after Martin's presentation here, I'm beginning to see that more and more as well. I do have a young grandson with an extremely rare neurological disorder (Miller-Dieker Syndrome) who uses CBD oil in controlling infantile spasms. My daughter and i have been talking about the benefits of a more broad, more whole plant approach, and this i believe will. Likely move us in that direction. Thanks once again to Max and the entire Greenflower crew for your continued efforts to elucidate the many wonders of this beautiful gift !
