Colorado Marijuana Hospitality Certification
Accredited: Green CulturED is an approved Responsible Vendor Trainer (RVT) authorized by the Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division (MED) (Approval: RV-00034) for professionals who are working in the state’s marijuana industry.
Responsible Vendor Training supplement required for Hospitality Businesses that allow social use of marijuana on the licensed premises. Colorado’s new wave of hospitality licenses has proven promising for Colorado residents and those interested in a career in the marijuana industry. In the past, out-of-state visitors and some apartment dwellers have had a very difficult time-consuming products.
To increase safe access, House Bill 19-230 (HB 19-230) is the state’s marijuana bill that allows for hospitality and social consumption in approved facilities such as dispensaries, hotels, and restaurants. HB 19-230, otherwise known as the “Marijuana Hospitality Bill”, makes it possible for dispensaries to apply for tasting room licenses. Other non-marijuana-centric facilities (ex. hotels, restaurants, music venues, etc.) may apply for social consumption licenses and there are limited ones that will be available for short-term events (ex. concerts, etc.) so there will be even more opportunities for gig-workers who want temporary jobs.
Keep in mind that local municipalities in the state of Colorado may choose to 100% ban social consumption lounges within their legal jurisdiction. Additionally, social consumption locations must not hold a liquor license either, which could reduce the incentive for certain businesses in Colorado to apply for these state licenses. The objective of this training is to exceed the expectations of every customer and industry regulator on every occasion in every interaction from the moment they enter the hospitality establishment up until the time they leave.

Team members must be knowledgeable about marijuana laws so they can answer consumer questions, many tourists will be curious about its history and how the hospitality industry has evolved. Your role will include both charisma and professionalism since you could be helping with different promotional events, discussing the different brands, and performing sales transactions for your patrons. Be able to educate the consumers on Colorado laws, the effects of marijuana, and how they should use it responsibly as they’re in your establishment.
The industry relies heavily on the testing of marijuana flowers, all the different concentrates, and edibles that you’ll find available for social consumption in the hospitality industry. The food service industry may be shocked by the requirements that hold up the marijuana industry until laboratory results are released during the “Seed-to-Sale” process before any hospitality establishment can sell specific products. A hospitality professional working in the industry may find themselves working in lodging, restaurants, cafes, resorts, clubs, bars, etc.

100% Accessible & Compliant Platform
One of the biggest challenges that learners face today is "accessibility" in their eLearning solutions. Our platform is American Disability Act (ADA), Accessible Canada Act, etc. compliant and why we started our "Industry Impact Program".
We are sensitive to disabilities so we provide closed-captioning (sub-titles) for hearing-impaired and screen readers for visually-impaired individuals who want to learn. We have worked extensively to MEET these "accessibility" standards.
Our platform is composed of a complex system with many parts and aspects of our development is always evolving so "accessibility" is NOT a state. It is a process of continuous improvement in response to our learners and technical environment.
Chief Training Officer
Our Founder's Message
How would you describe your cannabis training? Underwhelming? Non-existent? If you said anything other than a "well-oiled machine," then you’re at the RIGHT place if you want to transform ordinary training into a well-developed solution.
Is your training actually making a MEASUREABLE difference to you? I asked this question about my "learning experiences" when I got started in cannabis, I didn't like the answer. That's why we're here, so you'll always be a cannabis expert.
In the spirit of "open-sourcing" our eLearning solutions you’ll find our ground-breaking training, industry strategies, and Ed-Tech to learn everything you need (or actually GROW your business) and much more... without all of the headaches.
