  • How quickly can I get certified as a Curious About Cannabis Educator?

    It takes over a year of intense study, assessment and practical demonstration to achieve a full certification. Our teacher training workshop is every Fall and lasts approximately 6 months. Our Cannabis science master class is every Spring and lasts approximately 6 months. Scheduling the master exam and completing it may take a week or more. Completion of practicals is variable depending on the learner's ability to successfully execute their projects, receive a review, and final determination. If a student begins a teacher training in 2023, for instance, they could feasibly complete certification by Fall or early Winter of 2024. Some students may choose to space out their coursework to accommodate their schedules, which is acceptable.

  • Is this program online?

    Yes! This program can be completed 100% online. Live classes are recorded so that learners can review any content they may have missed. There are also multiple opportunities to set up virtual one-on-one meetings with the instructor for personalized guidance and instruction. This program is designed with flexibility in mind.

  • Who teaches this program?

    This program was developed and is taught by Cannabis researcher and science communicator Jason Wilson, MS. Jason is the author of the Curious About Cannabis book, host of The Curious About Cannabis Podcast, and is a recognized thought leader in Cannabis and cannabinoid science. He has been teaching about Cannabis both privately and for colleges and universities for 10 years.

  • What kind of time commitment is required to complete this program?

    Our coursework is intensive and requires completion of a number of projects, assignments, readings, and practicals that will require quite a bit of time to complete. The exact time requirements vary substantially person-to-person. You should expect to dedicate at least 7 hours per week on coursework when classes are active.

  • How many hours of coursework will I complete by the end of this program.

    In terms of time requirements and intensity, it is best to think of each of our classes as a traditional semester-long college class. Our teacher training program consists of 40 instructional hours as well as at least 5 additional hours of supplemental instruction, which is on par with a normal semester long college class. Our master class consists of 40 instructional hours as well as at least 10 supplemental instruction. This is excluding any reading assignments, assessments and other course content. All in all, you can expect to receive approximately 100 hours of direct instruction and dozens of hours of supplemental instruction, plus biweekly assignments, readings and assessments over the course of a year.

  • Are bulk discounts available for teams and/or organizations?

    Yes! If you have a group of people that you want to get certified, we can work out a special pricing scheme to fit your situation! Just reach out and ask about our bulk teacher training pricing and we will contact you to find out more details and provide a quote.

  • I signed up, but changed my mind. Can I get a refund?

    Refunds are available within the first 24 hours of purchase. After that we apply your payment to order supplies and prepare your spot in the cohort. From that point on, refunds are not available. However you can choose to move your registration to a future date if you like, or you can transfer your registration to someone else. Sometimes we can help facilitate the sale of your registration to someone else if we have a waitlist of prospective attendees.
