GROWING TOGETHER

GROWING TOGETHER

PlantEd Collective are a female-led tribe with experience spanning a range of specialities, such as: education, the arts, yoga, wellness, health and social care, patient advocacy and cannabinoid therapy.

We come together with the collective aim to create dialogue and engagements using complementary specialisms, building a platform of education around wellness, medicinal plants and herbology at a time where society is actively stepping away from the synthetic. PlantEd’s mission is to provide a space for those who are looking to restore their relationship with natural treatment methods and alternative therapies.

Carly

Carly is a former Lecturer in the Arts who has a creative background that includes exhibiting at the Tate and the Saatchi gallery.  After having to give up her role due to health problems, she discovered that Medical Cannabis was not only an appropriate, but more effective substitute for Opioids to treat her Fibromyalgia and post-stroke Neuropathy.

Carly was the first person in the UK to receive a prescription for herbal Cannabis privately since the law change in 2018. She is working tirelessly with government organisations in order to convert this to an NHS prescription, with the hope of setting precedent for other patients to follow. She is involved in many projects that seek to establish wider access to Medical Cannabis in the UK, most recently launching Carlys Amnesty, which seeks to provide exemption from prosecution for patients to grow their own medicine.

Carly is also a contributing member and advisor to the newly established Global Medical Cannabis Council and now advocates for patient access to Medical Cannabis as a Director of the United Patients Alliance.

Liz

Liz has worked in education for the past twenty years: as a primary school teacher, a primary school leader; a school improvement adviser with the Local Authority and a hub manager with the National Literacy Trust.

Liz’s interest in cannabinoids surfaced in 2015, when she was hospitalised with an inflammatory bowel condition. Reading and research led her into understanding how the endocannabinoid system supports homeostasis and helps to regulate the body’s inflammatory response. This information was integral to an improvement in her condition and also led her to develop a wider understanding of how cannabinoids can support health and well-being.

With a passion for education and recognising that information about medicinal cannabis can be unreliable, Liz has written a number of accessible books about this subject including: ‘Only a Plant’ and ‘Mum’s Medicine’.
