Phenomenal training session. One of the best I've been involved with. Tabitha has an amazing way of explaining the process of cannabis. Awesome for someone with ADHD. Thank you for your enthusiasm and dry humour.

Amazing instruction. I have been a daily cannabis consumer for many years and have learned information today that I never even heard about. So much of this will not only be transferred to our customers but also will be put into my own use of cannabis from now on. Fantastic experience and great teaching!

The interactive parts of the training where we integrated what we learned with our own knowledge made me feel more confident about recommending products to customers.
