CAN! Research Cannabis Horticultural Science 2018 Winter term begins with the new year.

CAN! Research is a business focused on innovating and implementing the protocol to continue moving further into the world of cannabis horticultural science. The latest offering from the CAN! Research educational program is the Winter Session. There will be two phases of the Winter session so that more interested students can access this valuable cannabis horticulture information. The first session will be held in Portland, Oregon through weekly classes from January to late March. Those who can’t make it to Portland can go to the Eugene class, a series that will also be made available for online students.

These educational programs are run by CAN! Research President Todd Dalotto. Dalotto has planned each class to provide an overview of each aspect of horticultural science as it’s related to medicinal and adult-use Cannabis. It is used as a foundational educational source in cannabis science and many have found it to be a valuable tool in employee training. All students that complete the course with an 80% attendance rate and at least 70% on the final exam will earn online credentials and a framed certificate.

Todd Dalotto has a horticulture degree with an emphasis on sustainable agriculture and plant breeding from Oregon State University. Aside from being a cannabis horticultural scientist and public policy consultant he founded the first hemp foods brand in the United States, Hungry Bear Hemp Foods. Dalotto also authored the world’s first hemp cookbook The Hemp Cookbook: From Seed to Shining Seed (Inner Traditions). He also founded the first cannabis medical clinic, education & support center in Oregon and served as our delightful, poignant keynote speaker for the Terpenes and Testing Horticulture Webinar. All of this speaks to the experience that he brings to the classroom.
