ACHEM Second Annual Global Health Summit Highlights the BIPOC Cannabis Legacy

Cannabis has been used as a medicine for millennia, embedded in the cultural practices of people of color from around the world.

From June 20-21, 2022, the Association for Cannabis Health Equity and Medicine (ACHEM), a nonprofit medical association advancing and supporting Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) health professionals and healers, will honor that history and legacy with a Global Health Summit centered around the history and culture of cannabis from communities of color. This year’s summit builds on the success of the 2021 launch, which debuted a powerful Black American history of cannabis that has transformed health awareness, birthing a revolutionary concept called CHEM(h)ist(o)ry, created to highlight the stories of people of color and their cultural experiences with cannabis. This year, the association brings together its esteemed board of directors to share the indigenous history of cannabis from cultures around the world and empower BIPOC communities to use those practices to expand health and economic equity.
