By popular demand, the Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, in conjunction with the School of Continuing Studies, is pleased to offer two more one-day professional workshops on the industrial production and quality control of medical Cannabis.
The imminent legalization of Cannabis in Canada will result in an immediate need for highly-qualified personnel with knowledge in Cannabis production.
These workshops are targeted towards professionals associated with the plant production and greenhouse industries and professionals working in food science and medicinal chemistry who wish to begin work with medical cannabis; workshops may also be of interest to graduate students in related disciplines.
