West Virginia Cannabis Industry Training
Accredited: Green CulturED is authorized by West Virginia’s Office of Medical Cannabis (OMC) through the Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) to provide the state’s required Cannabis Industry Training Certification.
This training will deliver a basic understanding of operating a licensed medical cannabis business following the West Virginia Medical Cannabis Act. Every principal and employee working in a medical cannabis operation is required to take this training. We cover regulatory requirements that consist of the West Virginia legal provisions and regulations relevant to the industry’s responsibilities.
Additionally, the training will cover methods to recognize and report unauthorized activity, proper handling of medicinal cannabis, proper record keeping, prevention and detection of the diversion of medicinal cannabis, transportation, dispensing, emergency preparedness, chemical handling, inventory control systems, storage, security, reporting requirements, and worker health and safety considerations.
With this compliance training being required, it becomes extremely imperative to understand the underlying regulations to guide patients for lawful use, advise practitioners and organizations for authorized growing and selling cannabis for medical purposes. This training outlines regulations to control medicinal cannabis at every stage from cultivation to dispensing to medical patients and caregivers.
The laws allow for cannabis to be used for certified medical use by a West Virginia resident with a medical condition and this permits the use of cannabis for certified medical cannabis use. This industry certification demarcates between the lawful and unlawful use of medical cannabis by focusing on the growing, processing, selling, storage, transportation, prescription, testing, and pricing of product lines.
Medical use of cannabis by a West Virginia resident with a serious medical condition is limited to these forms: pill, oil, topical forms including gels, creams or ointments, a form medically appropriate for administration by vaporization or nebulization, dry leaf or plant form, tincture, liquid, or using transdermal patches.

Cannabis Industry Curriculum
The goal of checking for valid Identifications (IDs) is to confirm age to prevent underage access and stop the legal, financial, and social consequences of underage consumption. This is a huge task given the large and increasing numbers of fake IDs on the market and the ease with which they can be obtained. Quality fake IDs are so like real IDs and it’s hard for those checking IDs to tell the difference if they lack training. And this becomes a big compliance problem since workers don’t know what security features to look for and feel people’s ID.
You will learn that preventing and detecting diversion within the cannabis industry is a very serious issue. The ability of a business to cultivate, produce, or sell cannabis products can only be done with strict adherence to government regulations. Without complying with cannabis diversion regulations, there’s no chance of legally running a cannabis business without the fear of a forcible shutdown looming in the distance. Another aspect of diversion is checking for valid Identifications (IDs) to confirm age and prevent underage access.
Learn some of the most important challenges security and safety considerations that you’ll find present in the cannabis industry. Every cannabis cultivation center, processing facility, and medical dispensary must safeguard its products, facilities, employees, and reputation amid the heavily regulated business landscape. It is important to invest in proper cannabis security training so workers are well-equipped and is required as part of the daily regulatory compliance, operational policies and procedures, and to implement industry standards.
West Virginia’s medical cannabis program, known as the Medical Cannabis Act, called for the creation of the Office of Medical Cannabis (OMC). You’ll learn how the Act allows for medical cannabis to be used for certified medicinal use by a resident and the business regulatory requirements. For example, its use is limited by law to the following forms: pill, oil, topical forms including gels, creams, or ointments; a form medically appropriate for administration by vaporization or nebulization, dry leaf, or plant form, tincture, liquid, or transdermal patch.

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.
