1. Unlocking the endocannabinoid system with maca and cannabis
This workshop/webinar is about understanding the role of the endocannabinoid system in balancing our brain and body during times of chronic stress and inflammation. Stress, trauma, poor diet and lifestyle all play a big role in upsetting the sensitive balance of our brain chemistry and can cause anxiety, depression, fatigue and other symptoms that can lead to long-term chronic illness. During this workshop we will take you through the complexities of how stress impacts on the balance in our body and brain and how our natural health systems try to respond to stressors to maintain balance.
We will also be talking about the role of the endocannabinoid system in regulating and balancing our brain and body. How to activate our endocannabinoid system and the different ways we can treat chronic conditions like anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue, auto-immunity and others using Peruvian Maca and other plants.

Testimonials from our webinars and workshops
Just attended a well thought out and inspiring presentation on maca. The sincerity and clarity at which the guy spoke on the spiritual, medicinal and scientific elements of maca was great, but the social change and genuine ethos they hold themselves to I support even more. Have been using maca for the past year and now I’ve found an ethical, charitable, high quality, farm to table, business to support. Thank you!
Excellent webinar today, informative, well presented, easy to understand, well worth every cent, and I'm so excited to try my new immune products. I work as a chef, specializing in dietary requirements, the tutorial was excellent and I can pass on info to my customers..thank you

What an articulate and compassionate speaker
I just attended a seminar on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome by Dr. Corin Storkey. This company really demonstrated their thorough research into their products, as well as highlighted Corin’s thorough research on the topic of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
I left feeling really informed, uplifted and inspired, -a tricky topic to address! What an articulate and compassionate speaker! I feel lots more informed in a positive way about CFS. Thanks! Recommend!
Connected with maca!!
I went to this talk in Wanaka about Maca and its healing power! It was so refreshing to hear about Macas sacred roots from an authentic and traditional aspect, rather than from a marketing 'superfood' foundation... these guys are up to some awesome things and seem to have nothing but the purest intention of educating community and giving back to the Peruvians

Loved learning about maca
A great presentation involving culture, body and mind, educating people about the origin and real spirit within the product and teaching the active components for nutritional health benefits. Loved learning and caring about who and how the journey of the medicine is cultivated from farm to plate. Thank you for your passionate service. It's important to buy ethical and sustainable and it makes it easier to do with faith when the power knowledge is shared globally!
Inspiring Maca workshop
I went to the Maca Workshop, what I can say is it was very insightful to learn about this ancient superfood. From the science to cultivation, farm to table & more. More so the ethical & honest practices of this organisation. The work these guys do to help the farmers, families in Peru. No middle man, brokers or corporation who take the big profits. The pure passion & integrity they have is so humbling. Keep it up guys, Can’t wait to start my Maca journey.
Highly recommend the maca workshop
Had a great experience with these guys at their last workshop with the Maca ceremony. I could feel that the products were really good quality, and what really impressed me was the process of how they actually make it, with so much good energy, and respect for the environment and communities in Peru. For those that are interested in medicinal plants, I highly recommend this workshop.
Corin and Sallys knowledge on this topic is extensive. Inspiring talking with them both. The correct usage of maca is imperative and with their help you can reap the benefits.
