The Quickest, Easiest Way to Understand the Confusing World of Marijuana and Take Charge of Your Health and Happiness

Cannademy's Crash Course in Cannabis online course provides a thorough introduction to a complicated topic so that the power to improve your health and your life is firmly in your own hands, even if you know NOTHING about marijuana.  It's like a college for cannabis for home consumers!

Crash Course in Cannabis online course: Isn’t it time you learned the truth about cannabis and what it can do for your life?

Tired of Netflix reruns?  Put your time to productive use that will positively impact you and your loved ones’ lives forever.

If you are curious but also skeptical or even fearful about cannabis, be it medical marijuana, THC, CBD, or adult use recreational marijuana, this online course is for you.

How do I know?  Because I was once that person, before cannabis radically changed my health and my life for the better. 

Do you wonder if using marijuana might be right for you but you’re confused by all the conflicting information you see about cannabis?

Or perhaps, like I used to be, you are currently using marijuana but worried you might somehow be doing yourself harm, or helping one condition while hurting another?

Perhaps you are even worried about yourself or someone you love starting a potentially dangerous addiction?

I created this course because I wish I had had something like it when I began my journey with this amazing plant over 25 years ago, when I too was worried about all those things.  Back then marijuana was SO stigmatized, you didn’t even talk about it.

Once I started learning about cannabis, I quickly discovered, like you probably already have, there is a whole lot to know about this simple plant. Each new discovery took me down a new rabbit hole.

I waded through MOUNTAINS of politically and financially motivated propaganda, technical research, marketing exaggerations, and reefer madness hysteria, before I got to the truth.  And the truth was, most everything I had been taught, or thought I knew about marijuana was dead wrong.

I created this introduction to cannabis online course because I understand that it’s not easy for the average consumer to find credible, fact-based information about marijuana, without making a career out of it, like I did (more about that in my bio below).  

This cannabis online course breaks down the complicated subject of cannabis and medical marijuana into easy to comprehend layman’s terms.  No hype. No BS. Just real facts based on actual science and statistics that can help you make informed decisions about how, or if, cannabis should be a part of your life. 

The world of cannabis has gotten so sophisticated. There’s a lot more to it than just twisting up a doobie and smoking it down (not that there’s anything wrong with that).  After watching the short easy lessons, that you can access anytime it's convenient to you, you will understand what cannabis potentially can (and can’t) do for your life.

What I discovered learning about and using marijuana profoundly changed my health and my life forever. I ditched a bagful of pharmaceuticals and have never felt healthier, happier, or more productive.

I truly believe cannabis can do the same for most people, IF they discover the best ways to use this incredible plant for their own individual needs.

Cannabis can do miraculous things, but it is definitely not a one size fits all proposition!

Here’s what people are saying about the online cannabis course

Even if you have used it for years, you come away from the course with better knowledge about cannabis.

I’ve used pot for many many years. Since VT will be opening recreational sales this year, I thought starting at the basics was a good idea to help build my side hustle. Cheri is a fantastic teacher, very thorough but at the same time very direct and to the point. Way to go Cheri, you rock! I thought the course was perfect as-is. Not overwhelming but very informative.

I feel like we’re friends. 

Once again, a short note to say thank you for all of the programs you have, the emails you send, and for helping to steer me in a very good direction using cannabis after 40 + years. I am getting through 4 courses currently but more importantly, you have openly and quickly responded to my questions several times. Thanks.

About The Course Instructor,
Cheri Sicard

Cheri Sicard was a published, professional writer and food editor when she first got interested in cannabis. At the same time she had just sold her award winning food and travel websites to SheKnows media and found herself between businesses. That fortuitous timing allowed her the luxury of immersing herself in the topic of marijuana and edibles.

Fast forward 20 years and cannabis became Cheri’s livelihood. Her website has become a hub of credible cannabis information and recipes, and she has written three books about the subject, so far.

"Mary Jane: The Complete Marijuana Handbook for Women," released in 2015, is a great general guide to marijuana and the cannabis lifestyle that has helped scores of women come out of the cannabis closet.

Her 2012 "Cannabis Gourmet Cookbook" (Z-Dog Media) and 2018's "The Easy Cannabis Cookbook," which was released to both public and critical acclaim, have made Cheri one of the world’s most popular marijuana food writers. 

Cheri has also turned thousands of home consumers into competent cannabis cooks via her live and online marijuana cooking classes.  Last year she launched a new course to public acclaim that teaches consumers how to make their own healing cannabis topicals for a fraction of what they cost to buy.

Cheri's cannabis articles can be found in High Times, Kitchen Toke, Civilized, Cannabis Now, Culture, HerbFreedom Leaf, and many more.

Why This Online Cannabis Course Is Essential for Marijuana Consumers

You would be hard pressed to find another topic in which so much misinformation is regularly disseminated, both positive and negative.

Because of greed and profits, decades of government and corporate sponsored brainwashing have made generations of people fearful and distrustful of this natural healing plant that, prior to the 1930s, had been used successfully by people the world over for 1000s of years.

Conversely, in the last few years with the advent of cannabis becoming accepted once again, greed has also been responsible for a ton of irresponsible marketing hype and exaggerations in the other direction.

This course has no financial agenda.  It seeks to educate consumers as to the truth about marijuana so they in turn can make informed decisions and be savvy cannabis consumers.

Today’s cannabis users are bombarded with misinformation from every angle to the point where many give up before truly understanding how this plant can significantly improve their health and their lives. Which is a shame, because once people understand how to use cannabis for their personal needs -- and everyone’s needs are different -- it can be a real game changer.

A lot of people flounder around and experiment and end up wasting a lot of time and money in the process.  Let’s face it, cannabis is not cheap!

Wouldn’t it be better to start with a solid knowledge foundation that helps you avoid costly mistakes?  This course can do that and likewise save you money by helping you use cannabis in a way that makes practical sense for you.

If you have been confused or frustrated trying to figure it all out you are not alone. 

  • If you don’t know an indica from a sativa, let alone what that means.  
  • If you don’t know whether to smoke, or vape, or use edibles or topicals.
  •  If the idea of choosing something from the overwhelming array of products at a dispensary overwhelms you. 
  • If you are worried about the stigma and/or legal standing of cannabis.

This course will put an end to all of that and much, much more!

In fact after watching the lessons in the Crash Course in Cannabis, you will know more about marijuana than a lot of Western doctors and the politicians who pass laws regulating it.  In fact, you might even know more about it than the person who serves you at your local dispensary!

If there was a "weed college," this course would be Cannabis 101.

A personal note

I hope you take the positive step of checking into cannabis because I know how profoundly it changed my life.

Unlike a lot of people, I came late to the marijuana party. Other than the occasional toke at a social gathering, it did not become a regular part of my life until I was in my late 30s and my doctor recommended it for a chronic nausea problem. Well, it worked for that plus a whole lot of other issues that, at the time, I didn’t realize I was taking it for.

Lifelong gastrointestinal issues completely faded away and I was able to ditch a shopping bag of pharmaceuticals including asthma medicines and anti-depressants.

It turns out the late great Dennis Peron (the father of medical marijuana in the US) was right when he said that “All use is medicinal.”

Cannabis profoundly changed my physical and mental health. I truly believe it can do the same for most people, IF they understand how to best use it for their needs. And to be sure, everyone’s needs are different.

I created this course because I wish I had something like when I first started learning about cannabis. It would have saved me A TON of time, money, and frustration. But I am proud of the fact that it is doing just that for so many others now.

I regularly get emails from students who have used the knowledge gained in this course and my other cannabis courses (that cover DIY edibles and topicals) to change their lives too, and that warms my heart. They have found relief from pain, from seizures, from PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) and so much more.

This incredible little plant can do a lot including take away pain, or help you get a good night’s sleep, ease depression and anxiety, prevent debilitating diseases, and much more.

Isn’t it time for you to discover what cannabis can do for you and those you love?  Hit the enroll button and start unlocking the knowledge you need to put cannabis to work in your life.
