Robust Certification Programs Offers Cannabis Training for Everyone
Cannabis Fundamentals Certification
The cannabis market is currently one of the most rapidly growing sectors in the United States. If you’re looking to become involved, either as an entrepreneur, a health practitioner, an investor, or in any other capacity, education is pivotal for success. While there are several different training and educational options for cannabis education, not all certifications hold equal weight. Green Flower Media is the world’s largest platform for trusted cannabis education, information and guidance.1 With new studies and rapid policy changes in the cannabis space, education is the cornerstone for success in the burgeoning cannabis industry.
The Need for Cannabis Education Goes Beyond the Patient
In an interview with the CEO of GFM, Max Simon, he stated the need for cannabis education on a multidimensional level. “Doctors can’t tell you how it works for different ailments and conditions; consumers don’t really understand all these new delivery methods; and people are really confused by how do they interact with the plant in the way that provides the value to their life that they are seeking.” ~ Green Flower Media CEO, Max Simon.1 The need for comprehensive cannabis education applies to all players in the industry, not just patients or physicians, but entrepreneurs, employees in the cannabis sector, and the community at large.

Cultivators & Growers
High quality cannabis isn’t quite as easy to grow as other botanicals. There is a significant degree of knowledge required for cultivators and growers, and it can be daunting to entre that sphere without being armed with the proper technique and facts to make it happen. Luckily, GFM’s new cultivation course has this area covered too with a dynamic and intensive new course that teaches growing, harvesting and processing techniques to prepare better prepare you to grow.
Patient / Advocate
Even if you’re not directly involved in the industry, this course can help combat the misinformation that’s prevalent in the world today. With an increased understanding, you can become a knowledgeable and confident advocate for cannabis, recognizing how it can improve your life and benefit others. GFM Academy offers courses for both physicians (patient care; teaches safe and effective cannabis support), as well as a medical certification that provides comprehensive education about cannabinoid science; both are equally helpful for the growing number of cannabis friendly physicians and other healthcare workers in today’s world.
Most medical practitioners did not receive any scientific information regarding cannabis and its role in medicine. Indeed, a recent survey by Dr. David Allen (17-year veteran heart surgeon who left his practice to study cannabis full time) demonstrated in a quick study that only 13% of all 157 accredited med schools even mention the endocannabinoid system.2 But with the increased availability of cannabis, patients are becoming curious, wanting to know if it is a potential option. Indeed, with the vast “clinical gap” in cannabis medicine, such certifications could prove priceless in closing that divide.
GFM’s patient care certification, as mentioned earlier, can help you respond to patients effectively, offering them quality guidance. If you’re already involved with cannabis, the information provided in this course will help you to become an authority on cannabis for health, further helping others receive the benefits of cannabis.
As a student, you might be interested in entering this new and growing field, but lack the means of entering the industry. If you want to learn about the opportunities in cannabis, how to land a high-paying job, what it takes to be a cannabis expert, or just gain the knowledge to educate others about its benefits, GFM Academy’s course in cannabis business can help prepare you for a career in this industry.
The industry needs people who can further educate all those involved or interested. The information covered in our certification will help you stay current on your cannabis knowledge, allowing you to be confident when helping others and responding to questions. It will also bestow another level of credibility to help boost your clientele.
