Dr Corin Storkey (New Zealand) and Sally Huapaya (Peru) are partners who work in collaboration with a farming family in the Andes and the Jungle of Peru. Their farm to table model preserves the ancient cultivation techniques, the culture and history of maca and cacao and connects consumers directly to their farm, community and sacred spirits of the plants. They also study both plants with university links in New Zealand and provide workshops to connect the sacred traditions with modern science.
During this workshop we will take you through the complexities of how stress impacts on the balance in our gut - body - brain and the role the endocannabinoid system (ECS) plays in returning balance and harmony back to our health. We will discuss ways to activate our endocannabinoids both directly and indirectly and the pros and cons of each. Showcasing cannabis and maca as two different plants that can activate the ECS, how they do so and the benefits of using each or both in combination. Learn about how modern science is now making sense of ancient Peruvian traditions related to the ECS and living well.
