Cannabis Therapy Consultant Certification Program

This hands-on, comprehensive program begins by reviewing the basics of the endocannabinoid system and carries students through the most advanced and extensive education of cannabis therapy available. We teach from a scientific, medical, holistic and herbal perspective and students come away from our program with a broad perspective and in-depth knowledge of the plant and how it interacts with the mind, body and spirit. They gain extensive medicine making experience, and the ability to create a holistic and dynamic cannabis therapy plan for themselves or others.


This course is ideal for dispensary workers, nurses, doctors, herbalists, massage therapists, clinical health practitioners, or anyone who wants to use cannabis to improve their health and well being.

Apprenticeship Program:

Our in-person apprenticeships provide a holistic experiential study of the world of the healing arts and herbology. They are apprentice-driven and personalized to fit into a busy adult’s schedule. We explore cultivation, medicine making and biology in our wonderful orchards, gardens and creekside habitat as well as take many “field trips” to local wild areas. Students can choose a holistic herbal apprenticeship, or the Cannabis Therapy Consultant apprenticeship. Certifications can be earned with either apprenticeship.

Join us on Tuesdays from 11-2 as we explore herbal cultivation, wild harvesting, medicine making, and plant spirit communication.
