Cannabis Horticulture Certification
Our students explore cannabis-related botany, biology, and medical sciences as they relate to a real-world setting. This “practical science” approach is appealing to employers and home-gardeners because it provides growers with a full circle understanding, and allows for more complex reasoning and problem-solving in the garden.
Information and techniques are taught from a rigorous curriculum in an easy-to-learn and logical format. Our information is backed by years of experience, scholarly research (e.g. pubmed), and published works from the American Society of Plant Biologists.
Our courses offer an immersive and complete educational experience for recreational and medicinal applications in a homegrow or commercial facility.
