An introduction to the Human-Cannabis Relationship

15 June 2018


Venue: St.Sidwell's Community Centre, Sidwell St, Exeter EX4 6NN

Organiser: J Levy

J Levy gained his Masters in human geography from University of Exeter in 2016 writing a multispecies ethnography on human-cannabis relationships. He has been a cannabis activist most of his life. He and his partner met as teenagers and have three grown up children together. He continues his write and research outside of the university system.

This will be an informal talk with an aim of dispelling myths about cannabis. I will invite audience members to share their opinions / perspectives on cannabis at the beginning and again at the end. I will cover all aspects of the human-cannabis relationship (HCR) i.e. medical / endocannabinoid system, recreational, cannabis as hemp / food. I will also highlight this relationship through the lens of political ecology.
