Presentation examines CBD and whole food nutrition for children

Information session will be held in Summerland on June 1

A presentation on CBD and whole food nutrition for children will be held Saturday, June 1.

The meeting, to be held at the Summerland Library meeting room from 1 to 3 p.m. will focus on help for those with epilepsy, autism, attention deficit hyperactive disorder, attention deficit disorder and anxiety.

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a naturally occurring compound in cannabis, but has little tetrahydrocannabinol. As a result, it does not produce the psychoactive high associated with marijuana.

Elaine Nuessler of Purple Hemp in Summerland will discuss how CBD can improve the quality of life. She will also present two videos from Medical Genomics.

Nuessler became interested in medical cannabis after her granddaughter, Kyla Williams, suffered from intractable epilepsy. The condition was alleviated by the use of CBD oil.

Victoria Laine, a registered holistic nutritionist, will talk about how food can affect a child’s behaviour.

Admission is a $5 per person donation to Kyla’s Quest. Reservations can be made online through Eventbright or at Purple Hemp Co., 13227 Victoria Rd. N., Summerland, or by calling 778-516-0089.
