Have you heard about the online Certified Cannacian™ Courses that are offered by Dr. Regina Nelson? I’ve went through them and I highly recommend these Cannacian courses to anyone in the industry or dealing with cannabis on a regular basis.

It is the only course of its kind in that it is dual accredited and CME is available for level 2 and 3. The Cannacian courses are accredited by the American Academy of Family Physicians and the American Veterinary Medicine Association.
Who is the course creator?
Dr. Regina Nelson has created and taught the cannacian courses over the course of the last decade. She spent the last few years traveling the world (she just got back from the UK a few months ago!) and teaching these certification courses in person. Dr. Nelson was brought into many different settings to teach the course, including medical and veterinarian offices. After several years of in person teaching, Dr. Nelson was able to use technology to bring her cannacian courses to everyone that wants it, in the comfort of their own homes, and at their own pace.

Why I Recommend the Certified Cannacian Courses:
If you’ve followed me online for any amount of time, you’re sure to see that I’ve been an active part of the cannabis community for some time. In 2002, as a Freshman student senate member, I formed the first chapter of NORML at my University. Over the years I’ve stayed active in the reform effort of the marijuana laws in each states I’ve lived in. In 2017, I joined a company that sells US Hemp Authority certified CBD products and I was really looking for a class that I could do on my own, from home, that carried some ‘weight’ I guess you could say. Meaning that I found a TON of quick certificate “CBD” courses, but Dr. Nelson had the only Accredited and legit CME courses out there.
So, I saw taking the courses as a way for me to grow even more into this passion of helping the world find and use cannabis. Completing the courses and working with Dr. Nelson has set me up to explore even further into this interest. Now, I am more confident when speaking to others about their cannabis therapy goals. I love that I am able to reference Dr. Nelsons course at any time too, this means I can always go back and relearn anything I might forget. If you’re looking to continue your education, I can’t recommend the Certified Cannacian courses enough! -Tara Eveland
