CULINARY AND CANNABIS
Culinary and Cannabis is a new groundbreaking event forum which brings together healthcare professionals, advocacy groups and food & wine expert within the community for a great cause. We aim to refute the stigma associated with medical marijuana treatment by exploring its many culinary possibilities.
The Culinary and Cannabis event is the brainchild of Tamara Anderson, a nurse who regularly works with patients suffering from debilitating pain. For these patients, long-term use of pain medication can mean exposure to uncomfortable side effects (such as vomiting, loss of taste/appetite, etc.), damage to the liver and other vital organs, addiction to prescription medication, and overall changes in the patient’s personality.
Medical marijuana can dramatically improve the quality of life for these patients by offering long lasting relief of symptoms without being addictive; medical strains are low in THC, but high in CBD (the compounds that provide health benefits).
Culinary and Cannabis is not a weed food-fest! This is a deluxe event aimed at welcoming professionals in the medical marijuana community to explore new ways to give these patients their lives back.
Tamara’s company, Sugar & Spyked, leads the charge in demonstrating a multitude of mouthwatering culinary techniques that will make your taste buds dance. Attendees at the Culinary and Cannabis event will enjoy 5-star quality meals and will walk away with strategies to prepare these treats for those they serve.
