September 13, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDTFree
Join us for an informative webinar on our Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Cannabis Science: Therapeutics, Product Design, and Quality Assurance.
The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Cannabis Science: Therapeutics, Product Design, and Quality Assurance is one of the few graduate programs in the U.S. to focus on cannabis and to support this rapidly growing industry. The program educates students about cannabis-based products with an emphasis on health effects, safety, formulation, and quality assurance. The program addresses CBD-dominant hemp-based dietary supplements and wellness products, as well as THC-dominant medical and recreational marijuana. The program is 15 credits, can be completed in 1 year, and is delivered fully online.
This webinar will provide a framework that gives insight into the science of cannabis, and how this program can support the student in advancing in their prospective career.
