CHABA and Cannabis 101 for Washington State LMT's
hosted by Massage Network Solutions
Sunday, February 9th
10 am - 2 pm
Kitsap Mall Community Room (next to Kohl’s)
Jennifer Chan is coming to Kitsap County to share her expertise on the current information on the legal use of CHABA and cannabis infused topicals.
Cannabis? Wait, is it legal to use for massage? What is CHABA, and what if clients ask me to use a cream or lotion they have that has cannabis in it for their massage? Will I get in trouble for using it? Will it affect me? What about the discussion I’m seeing about all of this on social media. Is any of it accurate? How do I navigate these issues and not get myself in hot water?
This class is designed to give licensed massage therapists in Washington the tools and knowledge they need to stay out of trouble and understand what can be used legally. The class will also cover the benefits of these products. This fun and informative course will help you:
• Understand the history of cannabis law in Washington
• Understand the current rules and regulations around the use of these products
• Maintain safe roles and boundaries with clients
• Understand the basics of CHABA/cannabis and its benefits
