VALLEY CITY, N.D. — Gail Pederson will speak on “Cannabis: Hemp, Marijuana and More” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17, at the Barnes County Museum, 315 Central Ave. North, Valley City.

The presentation is part of the Barnes County Historical Society Lecture Series Season 22.

The use of cannabis for fiber, oil, and medicine has been documented around the world since ancient times. The history of cannabis use in the United States has gone from one of service during wars, contributions to the economy and medicine to being illegal and legal. The presentation will include current uses for hemp as an industrial product. A discussion of the medicinal CBD and THC products with advice on how to find a quality product will also be given.

Pederson is a special practice registered nurse in holistic nursing and a cannabis nurse educator/consultant. She has extensive education on cannabis therapeutics and has an accredited program, “Cannabis 101: What Medical professionals Need to Know.” She has been active in the North Dakota Legislature since medical cannabis was voted in by North Dakota, receiving the North Dakota Legendary Nurse award in 2019 for that contribution and to the nursing profession. She is currently on the Government Policy and Advocacy Committee for the American Cannabis Nurses Association.

All lectures are at the Barnes County Historical Society Museum and held in conjunction with Valley City State University. They are free and open to the public.
