Mary J Poppyns has found her niche— utilizing her herbal passion to be an educator and ambassador for Cannabis. Cannabis is a new medicine for me. Taking Marys Cannabis Constituents course at The Herb Shoppe was a welcomed doorway to understanding (and awe!) as to how this medicine works in the body, and can support the mind and spirit. Thank you!

I took the Cannabis Crash Course and learned so many new things. Even though I already had some exposure from talking to people, the class tied it all together. Mary J Poppyns did an excellent job of explaining the terms and how the constituents worked in a way that was easy to understand for the uninitiated.
