New in person workshops coming in March/April 2019
Welcome to OrganiGrow Canada where we specialize in teaching people how to grow their own cannabis for medical and personal use as well as focusing on sharing the most up to date cannabis education.
Whether you are new to cannabis or have been using it for many years, we have something to offer. As farmers, herbalists and naturalists we plan to share our love of organic growing and the natural world so you can learn more about this versatile plant that has so much to offer. Your best medicine is the medicine you grow yourself, without the use of harmful fertilizers, chemicals and pesticides. We believe it is important to grow both our food and medicine using organic practices and living in a regenerative way in balance and harmony with nature.
With the passage of Bill C-45 which legalizes the use of cannabis in Canada, we are entering an exciting time where people can make a personal choice of using this ancient healing plant without fear of facing legal action. As we move into this new time, we feel it is important to begin to break down the negative stereotypes and stigma that has followed cannabis throughout prohibition.
We are currently designing and building our first (of many) online courses that will be delivered live in the new year – mid winter 2019. This program will take you through each step of the growing process from seed to harvest. And you will have access to us to ask questions and seek advice as we move through the growing season. This course will be an interactive experience to guide you through your first legal growing season (please check the laws in your specific province for growing cannabis). If you are interested in this course, please sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of this page.
I learned quite a bit at the Growing Cannabis Workshop, and loads at the Medicine Making Workshop. I especially agree with your philosophy of grow your own and sharing and it was so wonderful to hear express your views. I also was uplifted to hear you speak aloud about expressing your gratitude for our use of The Traditional Lands of the First Nations. It is an important step in everyone’s educations.
In the workshops I found the ratio formulas very helpful, and finally understood what the ratios mean and how to work them out. I used some of the pain salve when I got home last evening and took some of the edible oil (5 ml) as I have been having quite a bit of pain with arthritis in my foot and was provided both with pain relief and a good night’s sleep. The good sleep is extra helpful for me, as menopause beings its own horrors (and pleasures), but loss of sleep is a big one.
Glad to have met you and I hope to be able to take advantage of all you have to offer.
I had such an incredible time hosting Organigrow Canada at Gamiing Nature Centre this past weekend! I learned about the cannabis plant from the approach of an herbalist. We explored its history (very cool) and how it provides medicine to many.
The first day was very information heavy - in a good way! I now feel confident in growing my 4 plants. The harvest, drying, trimming and curing process. We spent the 2nd day learning how to make medicine with cannabis. That’s right! This plant isn’t all about lighting up and getting high. It is SO much more than that.
I truly hope the stigma around this plant will just disappear. This plant has followed people everywhere for a reason. It’s meant to be in our hands. Some of the relief cannabis has been known for: - Joint pain - Menstrual pain - Inflammation in dogs & horses - Insomnia - Arthritis - Cancer - Migraines - Nausea - this list goes on and on...
I had the privilege to participate in your "How to Grow" and "How to make medicines" workshops. Let me just say, I had a great time. I found the information you presented relevant and accurate and was happy to learn a few new tricks and pointers.
But what really caught my attention and interest was your passion not only for herbs in general- but in the world around us, in nature. I found it very inspiring and at the same time humbling; as I have zero knowledge of herbs and natural remedies.
The first day of the workshop inspires me to continue to "baby" my plants. I do wish to form a connection and deeper understanding of them and the benefits they provide, while at the same time- maintaining a level of respect for this flower.
The second day was - for me - the most interesting. Having made cannabutter before, this was the first time I made it without decarbing it...this was the first time I attempted (unsuccessfully) to "separate" the butter...While I have yet to use the cannabutter we made in a recipe, I am more than happy to say that the salves we made; have so far proven themselves quite useful. My wife suffers from eczema and after applying one of the salves we made, she found the redness and swelling to rapidly decrease. BONUS.
As our business grows we plan to serve and support:
- Medical Patients – Learn to grow your own cannabis and understand the different strains/chemovars that are best suited for you and the results you are looking for.
- Personal Use – Learn to grow your 4 plants for personal use (check provincial laws)
- How to use Cannabis as Medicine – Sharing our love and passion for herbal medicine as it relates to the use of cannabis. We will show you some of the many ways that this plant can be used and made into various forms of medicine.
- Consulting – We can offer consulting for all types of Cannabis cultivation focusing on organic methods.
- We plan to design and develop a full offering of online and in person trainings
- And much more……..
