The University of Connecticut has introduced plans to offer two nondegree online courses in fundamental and superior cannabis growing. The courses will probably be out there to the general public and don’t require members to be UConn registered college students.
UConn, which has a campus in Stamford, made historical past in 2019 because the nation’s first college to offer a category on the basics of cannabis horticulture. The new courses are being readied as Gov. Ned Lamont is advocating for the legalization of leisure marijuana.
“Faculty at the University of Connecticut have expertise across the cannabis spectrum – from cutting-edge research to legal and ethical issues, and cannabis-related entrepreneurship,” stated Indrajeet Chaubey, dean of the College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources. “There is tremendous demand from students and industry, and we’re happy to provide courses that can better prepare them for success.”
The introductory cannabis course will run from June 1 to July 2, whereas the second course overlaying cannabis manufacturing and trade will run from July 12 to August 13.
