Become a Master of Cannabis

At West Virginia Cannabis College, we’re not satisfied with teaching students about just one subject matter. We’re on a mission to train you to become a cannabis expert. By the end of the Master of Cannabis certification program, you should be able to accomplish the following:

  • Grow indoor or outdoor cannabis
  • Use cannabis as medicine
  • Cook or extract cannabis
  • Find a cannabis job
  • Start a cannabis business

Even though only medical cannabis is legal in West Virginia and the program has limited business and job opportunities, there are many other ways you can use the skills you learn at online cannabis college. You can use these skills in a legal cannabis state or become part of the growing ancillary provider segment.

Indoor and Outdoor Cultivation

Home cannabis cultivation in West Virginia is prohibited. You can still learn the basics of setting up an indoor or outdoor garden, from choosing the right grow medium and nutrients to planting seeds or clones in an environment with the appropriate lighting, ventilation, and pest control. If you live in a state that allows cannabis growing, you can use these skills to grow weed at home.

Beyond the basics, our content goes deep into advanced techniques such as training plants, cloning, breeding, and troubleshooting common gardening issues. The skills you learn in our program can also be applied to a commercial cultivation facility. We show you how to break into the industry with an entry-level cannabis trimmer position.

Medicinal Cannabis in West Virginia

Cannabis is legal for medical use in West Virginia. We show you how to get a medical cannabis card in West Virginia. In addition, we cover the science of the body’s endocannabinoid system and how compounds in the plant interact with the body’s receptors to treat various symptoms and conditions.

Using cannabis as medicine is a long tradition, but only recently has scientific research concluded the actual effects and side effects of cannabis medicine. Our program shows you how to safely use cannabis, choose the right products, and avoid side effects and medication interactions. You should still consult a doctor before starting a cannabis regimen.

Cannabis Cooking and Extraction in West Virginia

You can’t cook cannabis or manufacture cannabis concentrates at home in West Virginia, but there are many other states where you can. We guide you through the cooking and extraction process, teaching you how to create cannabis-infused butter, canna oil, tinctures, and topicals using dried or fresh-frozen cannabis plant material.

Cannabis extraction can be complicated and dangerous without the right guidance. We show you how to safely use chemical solvents to create cannabis concentrates and make them without solvents. Use these cooking and extraction skills to find work in a cannabis kitchen or extraction facility.

Cannabis Careers In West Virginia

West Virginia’s cannabis job opportunities are very limited compared to other states. However, there are many opportunities outside of West Virginia. Whether you’re looking for cannabis work in West Virginia or around the country, West Virginia Cannabis College can prepare you with the skills you need to find work in cannabis retail, cultivation, or manufacturing.

It does not matter if you do not have any previous experience or education. Our certification program is the most respected in the industry. We show you where you can earn industry experience, whether outside of the industry in a related job or through volunteering opportunities. We also show you how to create a resume and cover letter to get work.

Cannabis Business in West Virginia

West Virginia’s cannabis market may be small compared to other states, but the future looks bright for this state’s developing industry. Be prepared for legalization in your state by getting the right cannabis business training. We include the latest cannabis business rules and regulations for all states, provinces, and territories in the U.S. and Canada.

Get in-depth business training from content developed by successful cannabis business owners. Learn how to apply for a cannabis business license, create a business plan and pitch deck, find a state-compliant location, obtain inventory, handle insurance considerations, and handle other business responsibilities.
