On a recent Wednesday afternoon, a dozen seniors gathered at the Kenmore Senior Center to hear from Theorem Cannabis employees about the medical benefits of marijuana.
“Cannabis is a good thing, and we’re trying to educate people in the right way,” Theorem manager Audria Jaggers said. “(Seniors) are a population that doesn’t always get education about cannabis.”
Jaggers and Theorem operations manager Erin Green discussed everything from the legal information about buying and using cannabis to the different products available to consume it, from joints and pipes to edibles and lotions.
“There is a whole range of experiences you can have with cannabis,” Green said. “(Using cannabis) doesn’t necessarily mean getting high or stoned.”
The Kenmore presentation was part of Theorem’s partnership with the Northshore Senior Center to educate area seniors about responsible marijuana use for medicinal or recreational purposes. Their next “Senior Cannabis 101” event is scheduled for Aug. 9 at the Mill Creek Senior Center.
“Cannabis is a somewhat taboo subject here in a lot of circles,” Green said. “We want to open up the conversation.”
