Cannabis Strain Science: Beyond Folklore and Pseudoscience | Seattle Central College - Continuing Education

Cannabis history is rich and originates from every continent on the planet.

Unfortunately, prohibition has created a barrier between the public and people seeking reliable information both about the history and strain names that we have come to rely on.

When patients are depending on this for more than simply recreation, we must be able to help them distinguish hype from fact.

This course in cannabis strain science is designed to give you a launching pad to begin to look at cannabis in a different way, far beyond a catchy name and attractive packaging.
