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!
