The program builds on WWU’s current cannabis certificate program offerings, which include Cannabis Healthcare & Medicine, Cannabis Agriculture & Horticulture, the Business of Cannabis, and Cannabis Compliance & Risk Management. 

According to WWU’s website, the course allows students to “delve deep into the science of cannabis extraction, how to craft exceptional products that cater to a variety of preferences and needs, and strategies for building a compelling cannabis brand.” 

Green Flower CEO Max Simon told KOMO News that the program covers “all sorts of different kinds of products from edibles to tinctures to topicals to concentrates and more.”  

“It brings a real form of legitimacy and trust and credibility especially to people who take these programs because you can really use the university’s credibility as a leverage point.” — Simon to KOMO News 

The program includes Cannabis 101: History and Practice Across Industries and two levels of Cannabis Extraction, Products, and Design. The programs offered under the WWU and Green Flower partnership run online for 24 weeks and start at $499 per month.
