  1. Easy, yet informative


    Compared to the other types of online schooling for cannabis that I have taken, this site seems to be a lot more professional. I was surprised at how short the quizzes were, but the information that was in each section was well-written and easy to read and understand. Excited to continue onto more courses!

  2. Great!

  9. Budtending 101


    I loved taking this course. I learned so much on top of all the medical stuff I already knew from being a pharmacy tech, doing some MA schooling, and working front desk at a naturopathic doctor office. I’m so proud of myself for passing with pretty high marks.I can’t wait to start my career in the cannabis industry.

  10. Loved It!


    I absolutely love the online classes! The course provides you with a great amount of notes on each module. Each quiz, including the final exam, gave real life questions and situations that happens in the dispensaries. Gives lots of information, only thing is website froze on me 2x. But overall happy with course.

  11. Informative Course


    I came into this class with previous knowledge on Marijuana including types of strains and extracts, but this class does a really good job of breaking them down individually and explaining each. The part that I liked the most was what marijuana could do for each individual medical condition, hopefully when more research comes out we will be able to see the effects it has on more of these conditions.

  12. Was fun and interesting!


    Always a great investment when you have a certificate of completion to show new employers, patients, or grumpy grand parents… Go cannabis education!

  13. Must Take Course


    This course was easy to follow and flexible allowing me to go at my own pace. The units are full of tips and advise to help navigate the day to day life at a dispensary. I would even recommend this class for patients wanting a better understanding of medical marijuana and how their dispensary works.

  14. great course


    I actually learned more than I expected really good easy to follow course.!!!!!!!

  15. Nice refresh and super easy


    Wow! Somethings I learned along my way into personally studying of the cannabis plant for my personal use and wanted more to talk about it than just “yeah, i like weed”. I wanted to know which type I liked better, or to have more dominant in a hybrid. But there are other thing in this course I did not know about. And it was super easy and fast! Got it done in one afternoon. Easy enough for a beginner to learn, and other info even a seasoned smoker would not know unless they had some biology background.
