Lab+ Learning Center
Every Month We Release New Training & Lab+ is Our Professional Development Program for Anyone Interested Working in the Cannabis Industry or Needs Tactical Skills That Keeps You on the Cutting Edge.
1. Complete Training
Whether you’re a beginner looking for a place to start or a seasoned industry worker looking to uplevel your skills, we have everything you need to get training DONE in the cannabis industry... we provide a modern "micro-learning" format.
Our training video content varies in length depending on the topic... allow 45 - 60 minutes to complete each "micro-learning" module. You can choose from any one of our trainings to start building a SOLID foundation of cannabis knowledge.
The training levels are beginner to advanced, they all come with engaging videos, interactive learning activities, module assessments and certificates. And we ALWAYS update our training (so you’ll be steps ahead of your competition).
2. Passing Grade
Our assessments aren’t tricky, but they do require that you know the information if you want to pass. At the end of each "mico-learning" module, you will take a BRIEF assessment to ensure you understand the what's covered in that training.
A passing grade of 80% is REQUIRED for the majority of our training, and you can retake the assessment as many times needed to receive a passing grade (they include immediate feedback so you'll know why the answer was correct/wrong).
The assessments are not timed, and they consist of multiple-choice and true/false questions. Ideally each "micro-learning" module and assessment should be taken in one sitting, but your answers will be SAVED so you can finish it later.
3. Display Certificate
Once you have completed all the required assessments, you will then be able to save, print or download your certificate and/or digital badge to SHOW that you have been certified in a new skill. Upon successful completion, you will receive:
- A digital, printable certificate of completion (all training) suitable for framing & assigned a unique code when issued so it can be validated.
- A digital badge (for certifications only) that can be hosted on your website, email signature and LinkedIn profile to build creditability.
- Status and recognition of you cannabis industry skills & expertise.
- Best of all, when a client or employer views your certificate and/or badges, they’ll be taken to our site to verify your training is authentic.

Frequently Asked Questions
Questions? Get Answers! Leverage Our Memberships to Access to a "Community Within the Community" Where Learning STICKS & Ideas Get Implemented.
Do you offer a membership trial?
Yes! Lab and Lab+ all have a $1 trial for three (3) days that is available on a single (1) user account. Headquarter (or "HQ" for short) is available for a one (1) user account and does not include a $1 trial. Businesses need to schedule a demo to setup multiple-user "HQ" accounts.
We offer a 90-day "Free Trial" (click here) so you can "test-drive" our platform and know what to expect in our eLearning solutions when it comes to our online "micro-learning" format. If you need your trial to last longer than 90-days or you need more time to test our eLearning solutions... you can always START your free trial again by simply re-enrolling.
How do I log in to access my membership?
To log into your account, go to the "Training Login" (click here) on our platform and access the eLearning solutions you're enrolled in the Learning Management System (LMS). Put simply, the LMS dashboard is your "homepage" where you have an overview of your training and any activities which may need attention, so you know what to do to continue learning.
If you cannot log in, you can RESET your password from the "Lost your password?" (click here) option on our platform if you do not remember your password or forgot the email address you registered your account under. You should have received a welcome email after registering on our platform and it contains account details for your login information.
Remember, complete the "Whitelist Instructions" (click here) for our email address. You want to be sure that you are receiving our emails too... otherwise, you might NOT get your certificate and other cool things... they're all sent via email so make sure you receive them...
Are you an accredited education provider?
Yes! Yet... it VARIES so much. For example, we're accredited by Alaska's Marijuana Control Board to provide their "Marijuana Handler Permit," Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation to provide their required "Responsible Vendor" compliance training and others... see our "About Us" (click here) page for accreditations and memberships.
And 99% of our training applies to ANY country or jurisdiction (ex. Canada, Europe Australia, etc.) since our team publishes all our education "agnostically" (or "white-labeled") so our eLearning solutions really apply to anyone that needs cannabis education... you must understand "English" (our "native language") that's really the only criterion to get started.
Our team is always creating new accredited curricula with our Subject Matter Experts who are industry professionals in their respective fields of study. The industry is still developing and there is no universal accreditation (ex. Department of Education, etc.), but we expect to see this change in the NEAR future and realize the vital role that accreditation plays.
Do you offer team training for my business?
Yes! We provide a total eLearning solution, so you can EASILY train your team in a way that will provide you a "turn-key" solution for your whole team at an affordable price. It's called "Headquarters" (click here), "HQ" for short, and how we become an "extension of your team" to increase your profitability ($$$), ensure you're compliant and reducing your safety risks.
We have clients from dozens of countries around the globe utilizing our eLearning solutions since 99% of our training applies to ANY country (as long as you speak English is our only current limitation). We have been trusted for years by companies around the world and we're endorsed by the leaders that are driving the industry forward so if there's training missing that you need then we will publish it via our "Platform Roadmap" (click here) development.
We've built a best-in-class Learning Management System (LMS) that can be customized to your business from one centralized dashboard, allowing you to create learning plans for your teams, then track and assess everyone's activities with analytics. Whether you want your team to perform better, to make better STRATEGIC decisions, or new staff to learn quickly... they will be equipped with credible knowledge and industry skills needed for your business.
How will your membership help me?
It depends! Being an expert is the industry's most valuable ASSET. It will create meaningful relationships with your peers and develop your knowledge to apply new skills. Proper training pays for itself over time and what you will learn makes you truly irreplaceable.
Our training itself is highly valuable if you need to set yourself apart from the competition in the cannabis industry. What's far MORE valuable than any certificate, however, is the actual knowledge you're going to receive when you take our training and pass all the assessments. You will learn everything about cannabis that you need to know, and we'll say that again:
You will KNOW the cannabis industry, but it depends on who you are...
- If you're a cannabis lover, this training will set you apart from others who merely have read information online or have no cannabis knowledge, it is specialized training that you want today and lovingly seeking to learn more about.
- If you're an industry professional, we can help set you apart from your peers and make you more valuable to your company. This is the surest way to get a raise or promotion that you likely already deserve (but don't have a tangible reason to ask).
- If you provide ancillary services, our eLearning solutions are a tangible way to show that you understand and know the industry, which helps you attract better, higher-paying clients to bolster your revenue ($$$) and make a "bottom-line" impact.
- If you're a manager or business owner, this training is a great way to learn on-demand for yourself. We are your "Headquarters" (click here) and a great way to train team members so they're up to speed on the latest trends and best practices.
What’s the difference between Lab, Lab+ & HQ?
Varies... Lab (click here) is perfect for "cannabis lovers" who want community and "just the facts" via our step-by-step mastery courses that we lovingly call "training on steroids." For anyone who wants to be a professional and need more in-depth training, Lab+ (click here) is the perfect option, it’s everything in Lab... PLUS (hence the name) all our industry and specialized certifications... you get the idea, but this is our "turn-key" solution for anyone.
Also, all members get access to "GC Engage" a smaller, "community within the community" where members of our team and Subject Matter Experts hang out every day talking about cannabis. And then there’s Headquarters or "HQ" (click here)... it is the "all-access pass" membership we offer at and it’s for professionals or business owners who truly want it all!
"HQ" members also get to participate in new, exclusive training and mastery certifications that are created by our team that are released MONTHLY via our "Platform Roadmap" (click here). "HQ" is our enterprise solution that is made for teams so you can easily add/remove multiple-accounts as opposed to the single-user access, which is also available (click here).
Once I become a member, where should I start?
Before you do anything else... you need to join the "GC Engage" community, and ask at least one burning question (don’t have a question...? don’t worry... we’ll give you a few ideas). Then, DIVE into our course catalog and pick any mastery certification or training that will help you reach your growth goals. Don't see a topic you want? Then request topics on our "Platform Roadmap" (click here) and and vote on ones that have been contributed by our community.
What do I need to get the most out of being a member?
Just be ready... the only skill you need is a willingness to learn. The membership content and community has resources and advice for a beginner as well as advanced professionals, alike, and we FIRMLY believe there are no stupid questions. Heck, even our team learns a ton when our newest members ask supposedly "stupid questions" that remind us of things we should do, but aren’t for whatever reason... community makes both you and us better all the time...
If I want to cancel, am I locked into a contract?
No! You can cancel at any time, but while we HOPE you stay forever, we despise contracts and would never impose them on you... we're always providing you very flexible options...
Why should I become industry certified?
If you want to become a professional... our certifications will set you apart from the pack. Unlike everyone else who simply calls themselves a "cannabis expert," you’ll have the certificate and the badge to PROVE it, from a source that the cannabis industry trusts.
More importantly, it will make you a better cannabis expert. Why? Because you’re receiving the EXACT same training you would receive working at Green CulturED (and without tooting our horn too much, we’re pretty good at doing this stuff for the cannabis industry everyday)!
And we held nothing back. These are the same systems and strategies our internal team uses to create industry-leading training that generates EXPERTS and then converts them into professionals, directed by our Subject Matter Experts and Instructional Design team (the people in charge of all things eLearning at Green CulturED). So, if you want to start:
- Enhancing your career (or start a new one)
- Learning the latest and greatest tactics (that actually work)
- Expanding your skill-set, distance yourself from the competition, and jump to a higher pay grade...
- ...our certifications are for you...
If you're a business owner or team leader... maybe you don't need the certification. But what about your team? Do you know for a FACT that they're up-to-speed on all the latest and greatest cannabis industry developments? If you're not sure, or if you just want them to receive the exact same training that our team receives, then get them certified today!
They'll love the fact that you're investing in them, and you'll love the fact that they're performing at the highest level possible for your company. Also, there's no rule that you have to sit for the assessment. If the training is more IMPORTANT to you than certifications, then just take the training and look at the everything else an optional extra (but we recommend to take them just to make sure you're fully grasping all the concepts that are being taught).
Oh yeah, and if you're working in the industry as a cannabis professional, then you already know how important certifications are to distancing yourself from the competition. And who knows? It might even HELP you claim higher wages for the work you're already doing. Either way, if you expect the best for your company, then our certifications are definitely for you!
Is it legal for me to join your community?
Yes! It is 100% legal and you may enroll in our training regardless of the country in which you currently reside since we're based in the United States and we are all protected by the First Amendment (Freedom of Speech). Regardless of location, it is legal to learn about cannabis and we have learners enrolling every single day since our training applies to ANY country.
Taking our eLearning solutions, really, is the same as shopping on Amazon.com, eBay.com, or any place where you can legally purchase cannabis-related books, DVD’s, magazines, or guides... so it is 100% legal to learn from us anywhere you are located on planet earth...
Do you meet legal accessibility requirements?
Yes! One of the biggest challenges that learners face today is "Accessibility" in their eLearning solutions and why we started our "Industry Impact Program" (click here) to make this change. Unlike most of our competitors (which they do have great content), we are VERY different and sensitive to disabilities so we provide closed-captioning (sub-titles) for hearing-impaired and screen readers for visually-impaired individuals who want to learn.
Our platform is composed of a complex system with many parts and its development is always evolving so "Accessibility" is NOT a state. It is a process of continuous improvement in response to our learners and our wider technical environment. We have worked extensively to meet "Accessibility" standards. And here are the details how we meet those requirements:
- United States: "American Disability Act" (Section 508) is required so that information and technology are accessible for anyone with disabilities.
- Canada: "Accessible Canada Act" aims to benefit all citizens, especially those individuals with disabilities, by helping to create barrier-free accessibility.
- Europe (EU): "European Accessibility Act" used by EU governments and universities, this aims to improve the trade and remove country-specific rules.
- Australia: "Disability Discrimination Act" applies to organizations developing online resources so there is no discrimination against people with disabilities.
- WCAG 2.0: Used when deciding how to present content for the best web accessibility, these guidelines are always followed when we develop any media.
- ATAG 2.0: Guidelines to construct content (as well as consuming online content) and helps to improve the accessibility of the media that our team produces.
- ARIA 1.0: As many parts of the user interface are dynamic and interactive, we follow these recommendations to utilize assistive technologies (ex. screen-readers).
What is your online training format like?
Interactive! Our training is designed in a "micro-learning" format that is typically completed in less than a one (1) hour period, but you will find some longer ones too. "Micro-learning" is a HOLISTIC approach for skill-based learning which deals with relatively small learning units that are short-term-focused strategies specifically designed for skill-based training needed. We always recommend to try our "Free Trial" courses (click here) to get an idea of our format.
And our team of educational-technologist, Instructional Designers and Subject Matter Experts (SME's) strive to provide you with the best industry training and eLearning solutions available. With their peer-reviewed citations as leading experts, scientists, doctors, and educators... we always provide the best learning experience. Request new training on our "Platform Roadmap" (click here) or VOTE on current ones contributed by our community.
How long does it take to complete certifications?
It varies... there is never any type of time limitations and training is always happening because it is 100% online, so you can start whenever you like. Our certifications VARY in length, but all of our "micro-learning" modules are video-based training, so if you are working at it full-time you could technically try to complete it all in one day (although this is not recommended and sometimes not possible with the length of some our certification).
To fully understand and apply the materials, you should allow 7 - 14 days if you are working full-time, and 14 - 30 days if you taking the certification part-time. Typically, our enrollment duration for MOST of our training is one (1) year enrollment duration (unless noted otherwise). You will always be able to learn at your own pace, start, and stop at any time!
Even though many different governments have specific time requirements for compliance training, there is no time limit to complete our training. You can work at your own PACE without having to worry about losing your enrollment and any time frame listed to complete the training is an average since it varies person-to-person and your personal experience.
For many learners who are well-versed in the subject matter, they can get through training at a much faster pace, and those that need to review the material can do so without having to feel PRESSURED about completing in a specific time frame or achieving specific competency.
How difficult are the training assessments?
Satisfyingly enough... you'll find that our assessments are "satisfyingly difficult." By that we mean, it's difficult enough that you need to actually KNOW the materials, but it isn't tricky or difficult just for the sake of being difficult. The majority of our training requires an 80% passing grade in order to complete (unless noted) and your certificate is immediately issued.
That said, to preserve the exclusivity and importance of this designation, we have made the assessments challenging and the questions pertain to our proprietary methodologies, so you shouldn't expect to be able to pass just because you have taken other training... we are VERY different compared to our competitors and our assessments will reflect those differences.
If I fail, am I allowed to re-take the assessment?
Yes! If you do not receive a passing grade (typically 80% or above is required) you may retake the assessment an unlimited number of times. After each failed attempt, you receive immediate FEEDBACK why it was incorrect and provides you some additional learning.
Am I guaranteed to get a certificate and badge?
No! A certificate of completion and a digital badge that can simply be purchased isn't WORTH the paper it's printed on. That's why our eLearning solutions can be challenging. If we're going to allow you to display anything that is issued by us, then you better believe you're going to have to apply yourself in order to earn it and to display it as your proof!
How can someone verify my training certificate(s)?
Easily! You or anyone can verify the authenticity of your certificate by going to the "Verify Certificate" tool (click here) using the unique code found on your certificate. Your certificates are assigned a unique code to VERIFY it in our Learning Management System (LMS) that way anyone can validate it by entering the custom code displayed to confirm its authenticity.
Remember, that you can always access your issued certificate(s) from your account in our LMS, under the "More" section (click here) in your profile. It is possible that you may complete several trainings - each with their OWN certificate - it would be time-consuming to visit every course to download all your certificate of completions that have been issued.
To avoid this, on your profile, you can view all the certificates that have been issued to you. Go to your profile page under "Miscellaneous" and click on "My Certificates" which will take you to your ISSUED certificates and you can simply download them all at one (1) time.
How do I display badges on my LinkedIn profile?
It's simple! We utilize Badgr’s industry-leading credentialing solution to issue our digital badges so you can take your credentials with you, wherever you go, building a rich PICTURE of your lifelong learning journey that you have had training in the cannabis industry.
You can easily share your digital badge on Facebook, Twitter, etc. and there are two (2) different ways you can share with LinkedIn - as a post to your profile's "Feed" or to the "Certifications" section. To enable Badgr (click here), you first need to create an account on then you will be able to CONNECT by going through the following steps to get started:
- In the user menu (top right), select "Preferences," then "Backpack Settings" under "Badges" (click here) in your account on our platform.
- Enter your Badgr user account email and password.
- Look in your mailbox for a verification email so you can copy and paste the link to verify the connection to your account on our platform.
You can share badges on social media (click here) from the "Award Email" you receive or from your backpack since it provides ways to SHARE badges ("URL Link" and "Embed Code").
How often do you publish new training?
Monthly! But don’t feel like you have to consume everything the moment it’s released... everything NEW that we create is published from the "Platform Roadmap" (click here) into our solutions, so there’s no rush or pressure to access it in "real-time." Think of us as your always-available, training library... there's a reason why we're called "Netflix for Cannabis"...
Will you help me find a job after being certified?
Of course! We provide access to resume writing services so you can be ready to apply for posted job openings when you are browsing through available positions in the cannabis industry. The industry is currently BOOMING around the world and now is the time to get involved in the fastest growing industry that is happening on planet earth right now.
There are numerous career opportunities opening on job boards or career websites every day. We always recommend checking locally too since the industry is RAPIDLY growing, you will never know what cannabis industry opportunities that will be in your own backyard.
Are scholarships or financial aid available?
Kind of... at this time, no scholarships or financial aid are available, but we do provide scholarships through our "Industry Impact Program" (click here) to make an IMPACT for anyone who has a disability or military service. We are all about empowering people to get involved in a way that truly inspires and makes them excited to get out of bed in the morning!
But we have priced our training so that they are affordable to everyone interested in the cannabis industry, especially compared to similar education that is available. We believe that cannabis can be about much MORE than just earning profits - it can also be the ultimate lever for making a difference in the world's most exciting industry that is happening right now.
