It could very possibly be one of the fastest-growing industries across the globe. So much so that you can now go to a “Cannabis College” in America.
The United States and Canada have of course been at the forefront of cannabis legalisation. Being leaps and bounds ahead, they are now at a phase where they are planning for the future. There is a need for experts in the industry as it booms further, and in order for the industry to last – people need to be educated.
Is this just a gimmick of sorts, or is it justified? if the cannabis industry is going to keep growing and become commonplace, it will need professionals and experts. On top of this, it is opening up a new industry in which jobs can be created. This could be vital in South Africa with our high levels of unemployment.
Another good reason for educating people on the ins and outs of cannabis is end product. At the end of the day, anyone can grow weed. It’s simply putting a seed in some soil, ensuring sunlight, and giving it some water. However, if you want a quality end product with certain properties and medical applications, things need to be done properly. As you dive into the world of marijuana you start to realise how complex and intricate it can be.
At the end of it all, it might just be a brilliant idea. Preparing people of all ages for the ‘green rush’ could provide longevity of the industry, as well as proving the acceptance of the plant.
