CBD & Me

Engage with the West Michigan Woman Community!


If it seems like you're seeing CBD products everywhere, that's because you are!

Your local gas stations, pet stores – even ice cream shops – seem to have hopped on the trend and for good reason. Sales of CBD products are expected to exceed $5 billion this year, a 706% increase over 2018.

What’s even more likely to have piqued your interest, however, is hearing personal success stories about how it’s helped people with various conditions. From sleeplessness and anxiety to headaches and epilepsy and more, you may be considering if it could be for you or someone you care for.

Ticket price: $40
Your ticket includes light appetizers and wine/beer.

Online ticket sales are now closed. Tickets may be purchased at the door!


Join us as we open up a dialogue aiming to educate participants on everything from:

  • What exactly is CBD (or more importantly what it is not)
  • Product safety and quality
  • Where to buy it and how to use it
  • Medical merits or myths about how it may help treat mental health, immune-deficiencies, autism, pain, epilepsy, pets, cancer, dermatological problems, Alzheimer's and more.

Janet is the co-founder of The Grassy Knoll, a CBD boutique specializing in a wide range of CBD products for humans and pets. Janet and her husband started the business nearly three years ago after seeing friends, family and pets succumb to cancer and other illnesses. They saw a great need for CBD in the community as an alternative to using conventional pain medicines. With locations in Eastown and Woodland Mall, she and her husband feel strongly about giving back to the community, including the Humane Society and the Bissell Pet Foundation, and helping as many people they can with their CBD products.
