The Importance of Education in the Industry
Education is vital if we ever want to shape perceptions and drive growth in the cannabis and psychedelics sector. With education on our side, we can make inroads on removing the stigma attached to the industry: by providing factual information. I’m a firm believer that facts and proof will do the heavy lifting by taking the place of fear and prejudice. Education emphasizing the medicinal potential of these substances encourages acceptability for use in medicine and research. And people armed with education are better equipped to use psychedelics and cannabis in a way that minimizes risk and misuse.
Education also offers the chance for industry-specific skill improvement and career advancement. This is crucial for those looking for fulfilling professions, such as budtenders, in the industry. Business innovation is fueled by a talented workforce in the areas of product development, agriculture, and patient care. Furthermore, by ensuring that companies abide by changing legal and regulatory frameworks, education promotes a sustainable and compliant sector.
Features of CanMar Hub's Educational Resources
Are you looking to advance your knowledge in the realm of cannabis and psychedelics? Look no further. Whether you’re a seasoned budtender looking to expand your skill set, or an aspiring professional eager to enter the cannabis industry, Level UP is designed to elevate your skills and empower you with the latest industry insights.
Level Up is an e-learning program written especially for Canadian budtenders who want to learn more about cannabis, the plant itself, how it works with our bodies, how it’s grown, how cannabis products are made, and all the different ways of consuming it.
The Level UP program is divided into three courses:
1. Cannabis 201
This course takes budtenders beyond the basics of cannabis, covering the cannabis plant, the human body, and how the two work together.
2. Customer-focused Sales Methodology
Here budtenders acquire the sales and customer service skills necessary to succeed in a retail setting. They gain knowledge of the different types of cannabis users and the best ways to cater to each of them. Additionally, the customer-focused sales methodology teaches budtenders how to boost shop sales by properly recommending products to each customer.
3. Licensed Producers, Cannabis Products and Cannabis Consumption
Budtenders learn about Canadian licensed producers, how cannabis is grown, cannabis cultivation, product manufacturing, and various cannabis consumption methods. Budtenders also gain in-depth knowledge on reading and understanding labels, and how to best explain them to customers.
