Nevada Medical Cannabis Consultant Certificate

When cannabis professionals are well informed about the science, history, and policy of their industry, everyone benefits. This certificate elevates the knowledge of cannabis industry employees so they can answer customer questions with confidence and competence. Nevada Medical Cannabis Consultant will prepare retail cannabis employees to serve qualified medical cannabis customers as well as non-patient adult use customers safely and effectively. Curriculum covers Nevada state cannabis laws and regulations germane to medical cannabis (MMJ); qualifying conditions and possible medical cannabis applications; risks of use, misuse, and abuse; safe handling; ethics; and customer privacy. You will become well versed in the legal boundaries of retail cannabis roles and responsibilities. You will also study Cannabis Strain Science to better understand product labeling, discuss how strains are developed and evaluated, and address the problem of relying on cannabis folklore and pseudoscience.
