As medical marijuana laws and regulations have expanded to more and more states, our team of medical marijuana professionals have developed a state-of-the-art eLearning program for cannabis education geared towards the medical professional.

Our online courses cover topics ranging from general cannabis related knowledge, to our Medical Professional Certification Program.  We will continue to work to expand our course offerings and remain committed to our certification programs for Alaska and Washington State.

Cannabis education online courses can also be purchased by anyone looking to expand their knowledge on a myriad of medicinal cannabis topics.

As we continue to expand our advanced cannabis education and learning management system, we are creating a “knowledge vault” where students can continually access new information. Additional modules are being developed to help the patient, the consultant, and the independent learner gain a greater understanding of cannabis, cannabis related science, substance abuse, patient communication skills, professional ethics and ailments, and state-specific medical marijuana laws and policies.

Our team is and always will be committed to your medical marijuana education.
