A local news station visited Sol Flower dispensary’s Sun City location to discuss its cannabis and CBD education classes. Many of the classes are free, and those that do not have a medical marijuana card can still attend many of the classes. Non-cardholders can also visit the café and purchase CBD infused menu items.
New patients can have a consultation with Jane Fix, the Director of Patient Services, to help them navigate different consumption methods and what products might be best for their specific conditions, Fox 10 News reported.
“I always call CBD your internal helmet, because it helps with inflammation in the brain,” said Fix. “If you’re getting beat around and suffering concussions, CBD is beneficial for you. It’s also very good for stress and anxiety and arthritic conditions.”
Edibles chef Teresa Hansen of Good Things Coming stressed the importance of proper dosage. She teaches classes on how to cook with both CBD and marijuana. For those that don’t have a medical marijuana card, they can get a smoothie infused with CBD.
Allie Marconi, the Director of Marketing for Sol Flower, said, “We’ll do a Cannabis 101 (class), and we have Cannabis for Seniors, which has been really popular, a cannabis book club. Some non-cannabis classes that we have are a halotherapy. We do meditation, learning more about kitchen herbs and how those can benefit your life, as well as essential oils.”
Sol Flower also has a medical marijuana dispensary in Tempe. It does not offer classes and does not have a café, but medical marijuana cardholders can visit the Tempe location to purchase medical marijuana products.
