CBD Informational Presentation

Wednesday, July 8th, 2:00 – 3:00pm

Register here. The event password will be sent to those that register.

Registration closes July 8th at 9am.

Join us for this virtual informational session as David Peck, founder and owner of Calyx Collective, explains what CBD is and the possible benefits/side effects of using it.

David is an Energy Efficiency Consultant by trade. His career was almost derailed in 2014 after being diagnosed with chronic lyme disease. He was on a regiment of prednisone and prescription painkillers which helped get him through the day but they were taking their toll. Through a friend who was experimenting with CBD tinctures to help treat his son, He was introduced to cannabis and CBD tinctures and within weeks was weaning off the painkillers and prednisone.

As he began to get his health back on track he began to research this remarkable medicine and found out very quickly how difficult it was to find high quality organic CBD that he could trust. That started a journey which included visiting and talking to farmers to discuss organic farming practices, genetics, and extraction processes. He continues to research the CBD industry and the role different cannabinoids and botanicals play in healing.

Calyx Collective was created to educate and share his knowledge and passion for this incredible medicine.
