Our Story

Don’t underestimate the craft: know the needs of the medical user.

CannaReps is created by the people who care and understand about the challenges that medical cannabis users face. We know that the right guidance can change or save a person’s life when it’s at the right place, at the right time.

Cannareps is the first locally based and focused training programs that do not use traditional classroom (or online classroom) settings. Instead we focus on the basics of the illness specific needs – we focus on teaching people to be effective, to guide through the world of cannabis products, while keeping clients safe and providing them with the best chance of effective treatment.

“After over 15 years of working in the field of medical cannabis, it became clear to me that the scope of expertise needed to safely and effectively help those facing serious medical conditions is hugely underestimated.” Said our seminar leader, Adolfo Gonzalez. 

CannaReps was designed to effectively pass on the knowledge needed to help people facing serious medical conditions in a dispensary setting. It’s easy to be a mediocre dispensary worker – there are plenty of those – but there are few who can tackle the hard cases with confidence because most simply do not know the basic product knowledge necessary to provide effective help.

Our dream is to create a new generation of experts that truly understands and cares about the needs of the medical cannabis user.

How it works?

Our on-site training tools and ongoing peer support are designed to help you practice your lessons while working in the real world. We focus on delivering the most relevant learning experience on the market: a training program that actually gives you an advantage.

Hands-on product knowledge is the most important to a good budtender.
