Cannabis Sommelier Level II
We need more warriors of cannabis like the wonderful educators at CannaReps. We are at an interesting time in this industry as the tides of positive change are in full movement. This course has very powerful information for anyone from the budtender to the cannabis consumer. I feel instilled with a much greater confidence.
This course is very informative and well put together. I highly recommend this course for anyone who would like to know more about cannabis, be it budtenders, patients, beginners, and experienced users. Thank you so much and I look forward to this amazing journey!
The course was a little different from what I thought. It was definitely more academic as well as practical. I smoke every day but only as a consumer who hated the smell. But after taking the course, one huge difference is that I came to enjoy the smell and to appreciate more. I really enjoyed the course and would recommend it to everyone.
This is a must for any and everyone who is considering moving into this ever-changing industry. we need this in our community to continue positive growth and positive feedback. Rockstar knowledge and very approachable. Don’t think about it, just do it. I would encourage anyone to follow these guys.
