To do anything really well, both knowledge and skill are required. When it comes to competitive industries, such as the cannabis industry, the more education one has, the more successful they can be. More importantly, the cannabis industry is surrounded with a lot of misinformation and considering it was illegal until recently, knowledge was hard to come by. With legalization, the doors have opened to information as well as newly developed educational programs.
Many are eager to learn and with cannabis having huge business potential, it is important for producers and companies to maintain a cutting edge. Universities have started creating both undergraduate and graduate programs to establish a standard for the cannabis industry. There are programs available across the US as well as online and so they are virtually accessible to everyone. The courses offered include business, regulations, extraction, horticulture, budtending certification, and a terpenes identification class.
