No matter your role within the industry, you should have a solid understanding of how cannabis is grown because everything starts with the plant. In our Products section we go over the difference between outdoor, indoor, green house grows. We also dive deep into what is sativa, what is a hybrid, and what is an indica. You'll also learn other products such as edibles and concentrates and the new labeling requirements.

As a budtender especially, you need a strong understanding of cannabis products and how to tell if products are of top quality, pricing techniques, and other operational functions.

You'll learn more managerial techniques in our inventory management, compliance, and point of sales training modules.

In our sales modules, you'll learn how to up-sell, cross sell, and best practices in customer service. The more you learn, the more you earn.
