THE ACADEMY

ACADEMY OF CANNABIS LOGO WORK.png

Designed to accelerate your excellence in all things cannabis. We didn't study cannabis in a classroom, we learned by doing and have years of experience of growing and operating under our belts. 

Learning about cannabis is cool, so our classes are made to satisfy your curiosity and keep you engaged. Our classes can be taken 365 days a year, 24/7. We're here when you need us, and don't keep attendance or have mandatory hours. 

We provide classes that start at the basics and build on that foundation to help you curate a career in the cannabis industry. Our goal is to help you learn more efficiently, with higher quality information, and in a way that's tailored to you.

 

So you'll be better than us someday. 

Meet your instructors. 

School like you've never seen before.
