Cannabis College Course is Ready to Bloom

LONG BEACH, Calif. – California’s legal cannabis industry has been blooming for years but the way Nate Winokur sees it, there is still so much more to learn about the plant.

What You Need To Know

  • Eight-week, 40-hour course starting September at Long Beach City College covers all aspects of the cannabis industry
  • All 42 spots in the course filled up within 1.5 hours
  • LBCC plans to offer the class again in January 2021 and April 2021
  • The course costs $395

“Really, we’ve had very little time, less than 30 years to fully evaluate how this plant and these chemicals interact with our bodies,” Winokur said. He has spent two decades working in the cannabis industry. He’s a member of the Long Beach Collective Association and he also helped launch BelCosta Labs, which tests marijuana.

Winokur learned about the ins and outs of the cannabis industry on his own. There is no formal education offered but there are a lot of regulations businesses must follow. “For instance, in a laboratory where I work, there are a lot of very strict requirements for who can work in what position depending on what levels of education and work experience that they have,” he said.
