Universities Where You Can Study Cannabis

With the relaxation of cannabis laws throughout the country, many people believe that this is the perfect time to get into the marijuana industry. In fact, the Huffington Post said that the cannabis space is now the fastest growing industry! As the industry matures, there will be an increased need for more marijuana based doctors, dispensaries and cultivators. This means that more training opportunities are needed, and therefore this opens the door for many universities to offer courses related to cannabis.

Oaksterdam University

This university is possibly one of the most well-known and was actually the first cannabis college to form back in 2007. It has a very good reputation and you can expect to pay around $35-45 per credit. A 14 week semester will typically cost around $1200, with a more hands on laboratory based 14 week course coming in at $1500.

As of 2017, over 20,000 students have graduated from Oaksterdam. There are even courses which are more focussed on cooking with cannabis, as well as indoor horticulture.

Clover Leaf – Clover Leaf University

Clover University is another potential location to consider. Based in Colorado, it’s built up a reputation as an excellent place to study and learn about the cannabis industry.In fact, it’s the only educational institute that is approved for practice by the Colorado Department of Education. There are various courses available, such as Cannabis Science and Cannabis Cultivation. It is rumored that Clover Leaf will offer online courses in the near future.

Cannabis Training Institute

If you are looking for a pure online course, then the courses on offer from The Cannabis Training Institute could be a viable option for you. There are various courses available related to cannabis in business and medicine. These online courses are a great option if you have a part time job for example, as it allows you to maintain an income while you study.
