Interested in cannabis but feel like you don't know enough about it? We created the Idaho Cannabis University for you! Every course is taught by professionals with up-to-date and accurate information. And we can teach from anywhere in the world via the internet.

Idaho is one of the last few states to prohibit cannabis use, cultivation, and sales. Although the Gem State’s outdated cannabis policy conflicts with an increasingly pot-friendly country, you can still enroll in a cannabis training institute to learn about cannabis from the comfort of your home.

Grow Weed

Cannabis cultivation is illegal in Idaho. That doesn’t mean you can’t learn the steps needed to set up an indoor or outdoor garden, germinate seeds, transplant clones, breed new strains, and harvest several huge yields throughout the year.

Our How to Grow Cannabis class shows you how to care for plants from the germination phase, through the vegetative and flowering stages. We show you how to harvest and dry cannabis, detect pests and disease, and troubleshoot common gardening issues.

Make Homemade Infusions

Our Cannabis Cooking & Extraction Methods class takes a deep dive into trichomes, and how they are harvested and processed to create different concentrates, edibles, topicals, and other infused products.

Growing cannabis and making cannabis infusions is illegal in Idaho, but it’s important to understand the different extraction methods and how easy it can be to cook with cannabis. If you’re ever in a legal cannabis state, you can apply this knowledge.

We provide a step-by-step guide on how to make oil infusions, determining potency, removing solvents, and calculating doses. Best of all, we include dozens of recipes to creatie cannabis-infused edibles, drinks, and topicals.

Use Cannabis as Medicine

Idaho prohibits any use of cannabis, including for medical purposes. However, there are many states that allow patients to get a medical cannabis card with a doctor’s recommendation and recreational use is legal in Washington, Oregon, and Montana, bordering Idaho.

Our Cannabis As Medicine class covers the history of cannabis laws and research, getting a medical card, the science of cannabis’ health benefits, and safely using cannabis for different medical symptoms and conditions.

Start a Career

Enrollment in Idaho Cannabis University can show you how to build industry experience, find job opportunities, and write a resume and cover letter. We cover the roles and responsibilities, education requirements, and advancement opportunities of the industry’s in-demand jobs.

Although Idaho’s laws prohibit commercial cannabis sales, a solid cannabis education can prepare you to work outside of the state with more job opportunities. Popular entry-, mid-, and senior-level cannabis jobs include:

  • Budtender
  • Bud trimmer
  • Grower’s assistant
  • Kitchen assistant
  • Edibles chef
  • Extraction technician
  • Head grower

Open a Cannabis Business

An Idaho cannabis education will put you in the driver's seat of this booming business. Although Idaho prohibits any cannabis sales, our experienced instructors will prepare you to open your own cultivation, processing, and recreational dispensary in states that do not have a residency requirement and have open licensing periods.

Idaho was the last state to legalize hemp, opening up business opportunities for many farmers. Industrial hemp has thousands of uses, from animal feed to biofuel. Learn the essentials of the cannabis and hemp industry to get your start in this blossoming space.

Learn the government requirements for cannabis businesses in all states, provinces, and territories in the U.S. and Canada. We cover business basics such as creating a business plan and pitch deck, marketing and sales, inventory management, business insurance, and more.

There are over 300,000 jobs in the cannabis industry. CTU trained me for one of them!
