420 with CNW – Universities Start Offering Marijuana Certificates to Healthcare Professionals

October 23, 2019 15:20:06

Healthcare professionals can now get cannabis certification from two education institutions, Pacific College of Oriental Medicine and Oaksterdam University.

Pacific College of Oriental Medical is the first institution to be regionally-accredited to offer healthcare professionals with a Medical Cannabis Certificate. The college is also a leader in integrative healthcare education.

This term, the college is partnering with Oaksterdam University to offer bonus cannabis lectures to their students.

The cannabis curriculum has been contributed to by professionals in the marijuana sector, and this includes attorneys, academics, activists, farmers and entrepreneurs. Among those who will be teaching are Natalie Darves and Paul Armentano, who will be sharing their extensive knowledge on the genetics and pharmacology of marijuana.

The partnership between the two institutions shows how important cannabis education is and their role as thought-leaders in the medical field.

The collaboration between the institutions will help advance cannabis education while guiding the healthcare professionals on the safe and effective use of marijuana, said Malcolm Youngren, COO of Pacific College.

According to Carey Clark, Pacific College program Chair, patients should be handled with care by providing them with accurate information about drug interactions, methods of purchasing CBD medication, how to derive maximum relief from medical marijuana as well as the side effects.

The two lecturers will cover topics on cannabis genealogy and cannabis and CBD. Cannabis genealogy expounds on cannabis genetics, how they are sourced and stabilized, and the cannabis genetic pool origin. They will also cover future research of genetics, genome testing and standards of labelling.

The cannabis and CBD topics will also cover the plant’s therapeutic properties, methods of administration, and how they interact with the body. They will also discuss specific conditions surrounding the use of cannabis and cannabinoids.

Dave Sky Jone, the Executive Chancellor of Oaksterdam University, said they are thrilled to partner with Pacific College in educating their students on the benefits and method of using marijuana.

The two institutions are looking forward to future opportunities of educating the healthcare industry on the importance of cannabis and its interaction with the human endocannabinoid system.

Pacific College of Oriental Medicines is the largest school that is accredited to offer courses in Chinese medicine and Massage therapy, such as acupuncture, in the U.S. It was founded in 1986 in San Diego and has branches in New York City and Chicago. The college has 1300 onsite students and 500 online students.

Meanwhile, Oaksterdam University is the first marijuana college in the U.S. It was founded in 2007 and has over 40,000 alumni all over the world. It offers its students hands-on marijuana plant experience. The university is popular because of its expertise and leadership in the marijuana sector as it provides regulatory training on government and public affairs by availing the students with exceptional learning and networking opportunities.

No one would be blamed for thinking that marijuana companies like The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX: TGOD) (OTCQX: TGODF) and Hemptown USA are excited that these two reputable institutions have started equipping healthcare professionals with the skills that the need to administer medical marijuana.
