World-Class Faculty

South Africa Marijuana School is proud to have a broad range of leaders in their field, from expert cannabis growers to the best budtenders in the business. Our faculty has decades of experience working in the industry and is ready to share their knowledge with you.

Twelve Weeks of Access to Course Content

When you enroll at South Africa Marijuana School, you get 12 weeks of access to our Master of Cannabis certification, featuring 10 certifications for the price of one. Twelve weeks is enough time to go through all the courses and pass the final exam. After passing the final exam, you get downloadable certificates that you can also include in your resume and cover letter.

Grow Cannabis at Home

In 2018, South Africa’s Supreme Court decriminalized cannabis use within the privacy of one’s home. Today, South Africa allows for the possession and cultivation of cannabis on private property. Public cannabis consumption is not legal.

Our Master of Cannabis program teaches you how to set up an indoor or outdoor cannabis garden in a secure space away from public view. We’ll guide you through every step of the process, from germinating seeds to harvesting and storing cannabis flower.

Make Edibles and Extracts

Since home cultivation for personal use is decriminalized in South Africa, you can use your flower, sugar leaves, and trim to make various infused edibles, concentrates, and topicals. We show you how to work in the kitchen to safely make cannabutter or canna oil.

Use Cannabis as Medicine

Cannabis has been used as medicine for thousands of years. We provide the latest scientific research on cannabis’ health benefits and show you how you can use this plant to treat various symptoms and conditions.

Find a Career

South Africa does not allow cannabis sales but does allow CBD products with 0.2% THC or less to be sold and used. This has opened the door for hemp cultivation and production of CBD oils, vapes, skincare topicals, and beverages.

In this growing market, there are a lot of career opportunities, including a CBD store manager, retail assistant, cannabis grower, extraction technician, edibles chef, and so much more. We teach you how to create a resume and cover letter and succeed in these jobs.

Start a Business

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has committed to streamlining the country's path toward hemp and cannabis regulation. This came a few months after the country’s agriculture department released a national strategy that estimated the country’s industry size at 28 billion rands ($1.9 billion).

Our Master of Cannabis program gives you the skills to start or manage a business. We show you how to find a location, impress investors, create a business plan and pitch deck, and run a successful cannabis business.

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