"Adolfo and his team have created an incredibly valuable resource for the cannabis industry and beyond through CannaReps. Adolfo's years of experience and knowledge is evident in the course material and in his presentations. And he is a great speaker! This course is just as good, if not better than some university courses I have taken. The take home information that you receive is formatted in an easy to use reference deck that you can literally pop in your bag to bring with you anywhere. It is so helpful when you are out in the field. They were quick to answer my many numerous questions during the course and have continued to support me as I find my place in this industry.
