The cannabis plant is one of nature's most potent healers. Increasingly, it is being embraced as a legal medicine in other countries. In New Zealand cannabis is still illegal, in spite of massive public support for law reform.

Learn how to make healing cannabis-root balms and how to use cannabis for a variety of medical conditions.

Suitable for: adults only

Duration: 120 minutes

Presenter: Redwood Reider (with Sue Grey)


Bio

Redwood (Rebecca) Reider and Sue Grey are trailblazers in the movement to legalise cannabis in New Zealand. Both women have made public progress through individual cases, and continue to actively campaign for law change at a national level. Redwood, who lives with chronic pain, recently became the first person to legally possess cannabis plant material in NZ in over 50 years. This occurred thanks to a legal exemption highlighted by her lawyer Sue Grey. Redwood was prosecuted for importing and possessing medicinal cannabis products, then discharged without conviction, in part due to her overseas cannabis prescription. Sue has won multiple landmark cannabis cases, receiving discharges for medical users. All three presenters have been featured frequently in national media and have presented at local and national rallies and events.
