Blown Away By Quality Of Training

The resource at greencultured.co is enormous. They provide high quality and reliable cannabis education for free. From videos to eBooks, every learning material they offer is well structured, clear and easy to follow. I have the cannabis industry basics and was mostly interested in medical marijuana regulations as well as the biochemistry of this ‘sacred plant.’ I must admit that I’m blown away by the quality, value and support I received from this free certificate program. If you’re considering a career in the ever growing cannabis industry or just want to legally grow your own cannabis, then I strongly recommend you enroll for the free training program on the Green CulturED website; you will be glad you did.

Wonderful Platform

We live in a world where everything is computerized and information about virtually everything can be easily accessed online. I find to find this eLearning site very interesting, as it specifically covers the cannabis industry. Another thing I like about Green CulturED is the value added service of free training as it encouraged a starter, like myself, to learn more about the marijuana industry. This is really a great starting point if you are new to the cannabis world, keep learning while you earn a printable certificate or digital badge.

Membership FAQ's

Q: What’s the difference between Lab, Lab+ & HQ?

A: Lab is perfect for individuals who want community, and “just the facts” via the step-by-step, “training on steroids” we lovingly call "Cannabis Blueprints". For individuals who want to become professionals and needs more in-depth training, Lab+ is the perfect option, because it’s everything in Lab PLUS (hence the name) all our certifications and mastery courses... you get the idea.

And then there’s Headquarters (HQ). HQ is the highest level of membership we offer at and it’s for professionals or business owners who truly want it all! First, HQ members get access to a smaller, "community within the community" where members of the Green CulturED team and Subject Matter Experts hang out every day. HQ members also get to participate in new, exclusive training and certifications that are created by our Instructional Design team that are released monthly from our Training Roadmap. It’s made for cannabis industry teams, since with HQ you can add team members as opposed to the single user access.

Q: How long does it take to complete a training?

A: Our training is designed in a "micro-learning" format to be completed less than a 1-hour period typically, but you will find some longer ones too. "Micro-learning" is a holistic approach for skill-based learning and education which deals with relatively small learning units. It involves short-term-focused strategies especially designed for skill-based training. But our certifications are designed to be completed over a few days if you’re consuming full-time, or a few weeks if you’re allocating an hour or two a day.

Q: How often do you publish new training?

A: Monthly! But don’t feel like you have to consume everything the moment it’s released. Everything we create is archived in the members area, so there’s no rush or pressure to access it in "real time." Think of us as your always-available, cannabis industry library. There’s a reason it’s been called, "Netflix for Cannabis." 🙂

Q: Once I become a member, where should I start?

A: Before you do anything else, you need to join the 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 cannabis industry training library and pick any training that will help you reach your growth goals. Don't see a topic you want? Then request topics and vote on our Training Roadmap.

Q: What do I need to get the most out of my training?

A: The only skill you need is a willingness to learn. The membership content and community has resources and advice for 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 be doing, but aren’t for whatever reason.

Q: Is Green CulturED accredited?

A: YES! Yet it varies, so for example, we're accredited by Alaska's Marijuana Control Board to provide their compliance training called "Marijuana Handler Permit" (see “About Us” page for all Accreditation/Memberships). But our Instructional Design team is always creating NEW accredited curriculum with our Subject Matter Experts who are licensed professionals in their respective fields of study. Yet, 99% of our training applies to any country or jurisdiction since our team publishes all our training “agnostic” (or white-labeled) so will make sense to anyone (or business) needing to learn about the cannabis industry. The cannabis industry is still developing and there is no national 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 to support compliance with regulatory requirements.

Q: Do you offer a free trial?

A: Lab, Lab+ and HQ all have a single user account $1 trial for 3-days available. HQ is available for businesses by application only that need multiple user accounts and does not include a trial.

Q: If I want to cancel, am I locked into a contract?

A: You can cancel at any time. While we hope you stay forever, we despise contracts and would never impose them on you.

Q: Is it legal to enroll? Anywhere in the world?

A: Yes, we are all protected by the first amendment (Freedom of Speech) so anyone in the world can enroll in our training. Just like it is legal to buy books and videos about cannabis on Amazon.com, it is legal to complete our training and learn about the industry no matter where you are located.
