Cannabis education in Canada 

Author: June McLaughlin 


Canada legalized recreational use of cannabis in 2018.

The government established a comprehensive educational website for public safety and public health.  It is a combination of legal education and drugs and health information available in multiple languages.

There are resources organized by community as well – youth, pregnant persons, and Indigenous peoples and communities.  Canada established a special sherpa or Navigator for Indigenous affiliated applicants for licensing.

It is a warehouse of information.


Online Cannabis University 


The Cannabis Training University (CTU) is 100% online and wants to teach you to grow weed like a pro!

It has celebrity endorsements from Tommy Chong, Montel Williams, and Daymond John.

For each purchase of a course, CEO Jeff Zorn makes a donation to help people and children with traumatic brain injuries.

It claims to be the only training school with updated cannabis laws and regs from around the world.

I like the vibe here. There is a fun, weed-loving attitude toward the training which will attract a certain type of student.


CTU does claim that you can use the certificate to get a job or start your own cannabis business.

However, CTU states it is not a certificate mill. It has an accreditation from IACET under ANSI – American National Standards Institute. This is a continuing education and training accreditation.

I do think this distinguishes CTU. There is no attempt to sit under the auspices of a university extension program which is offering an online program at a much, much, higher price. CTU most courses go for under $300.

CTU is June approved!
