The American College of Healthcare Sciences will celebrate Herb Day, Saturday, May 4, at the college campus located at 5005 SW Macadam Ave., between 9:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. The public is invited to learn what local experts have to say about CBD and essential oils for both humans and dogs. At this year’s Herb Day Celebration, we delve into the methods and mechanism of how non-psychoactive CBD is used in treatment of many conditions in pets and humans. We’re excited to invite you to our 2019 Herb Day Celebration.
The morning will kick off with a light breakfast and hands on demonstration with the help of Griffy a rescue dog from China. Our key note expert and local naturopathic doctor, Kris Ritchey, will share case examples and successful uses of CBDs in treating her patients. The morning will wrap up with renowned international aromatherapy expert Dorene Petersen, ACHS’s founding president. She will demonstrate how to make pain relieving salves and creams using CBD and essential oil blends.

Herb Day is an international celebration of herbs and herbal products that are packed with events aimed at educating and sharing ideas about the many ways herbs bring joy and well-being into our daily lives. It’s a celebration of herbs used in food, beverages, medicine, beauty products, and crafts, along with the art of growing and gardening with herbs.
Herb Day is a grassroots movement and its events belong to everyone who chooses to participate. Although May 4th will be the focal point of our celebration, we encourage you to commemorate Herb Day any time, any day, any time of year! Get more info by visiting herbday.org
