Is it too late to go back to school?? Niagara College in Ontario has just released their 2018 course list. And what should appear on it? Commercial Cannabis Production. Let’s put this into perspective though, and break down how useful this degree really is. Although, this is more of an educated guess, as we won’t really know for sure until the first graduates are up and planting.
The course is a one year post-grad program geared towards large scale weed farming. This class is not aimed at people who want to grow a few lady jane’s in their closet. It has been specifically developed for students who want to get into the professional marijuana grow-op business. So, eager young minds will not only learn about how to grow premium weed, but also about the regulations and rules which govern the crop itself. The second part might be a little hard to teach, as the rules and regulations are still unclear, up in the air, or nonexistent. But, at least they’re trying.
Right now, there are about 59 licensed grow-ops in Canada. All of them will be looking for a much bigger work force come 2018, and this course is designed specifically to meet that anticipated demand. Very, very smart thinking on the part of Niagara College. This course will meet both student demand, and help companies avoid the weed shortages that plagued the States after legalization.
Overall, the best part seems to be how the course aims to combine the finer points of marijuana plant pathology, with growing methods and techniques used by traditional farmers. This could potentially lead to break throughs in greater weed production, with the same quality us smokers currently expect.
So, if you’re looking to relive those glory days of higher education, head on out to Ontario and get growin!
