The Cannabis Core program is a 12-hour educational program that provides an overview of the cannabis industry for people looking for general knowledge as they consider a cannabis career. During four, three-hour sessions, students will interact with cannabis experts and guest speakers in reviews of the plant, various cannabis products, the endocannabinoid system, laws and prohibition, growing and plant care, labeling, packaging, testing, employment considerations, and more.
This is a foundational course and is a prerequisite for the career track courses. The class will be conducted over Zoom.
