Webinar | How to Apply the Sensory Characteristics of Cannabis

April 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Learn more about how a skilled budtender can guide clients to cannabis strains with known therapeutic properties.

Join this webinar to learn more about how a skilled budtender can guide clients to identify the sensory signature of strains with known therapeutic properties. Professionally trained, they use the “organoleptic” signature of medicinal cannabis strains to help identify the cannabis product with specific medical applications.

MUIH’s 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.
