ON DEMAND Cannabis Training Courses

Basic Dispensary Training

Basic Dispensary training is 2.5-hour class covering what you need to know to work the retail side of the industry: CBD Stores or Cannabis Dispensaries. This is a less-intense version of the Budtender Certification with an overview of the endocannabinoid system and a summary of the basic cannabinoids and terpenes that the plant possesses. This will not cover state-specific laws or include the resume review but does include product education and dosage recommendations. You will not need to take a test for your certificate of completion. This course is now also offered as ON DEMAND Dispensary Training.

Advanced Cannabis Science Training

Advanced Cannabis Science Training is not about working in the Cannabis Industry but instead, it’s all about the Cannabis Plant. This 2.5-hour course is a deep dive into the endocannabinoids our body makes and how phyto cannabinoids can fill in when our own production decreases. We will also focus on terpenes and flavonoids to round out the entourage effect that the cannabis plant along with other plants can have when we incorporate them into our daily diet and routine. This is a great class for people already in the wellness industry who want to incorporate THC or CBD into their life. The class will focus on the biology of the cannabis plant and the biology of the human body. This course is now also offered as ON DEMAND Cannabis Science Training.

Super helpful! James was very kind and quick to respond. He helped me refine my resume and I was employed within two weeks! Amazing.
Ari Brunet
I’ve dreamt of being a budtender for a few years now and I was anxious to enter the industry. When I found HempStaff, it really was a godsend! I’ve never experienced such helpful and friendly recruitment advice. I now feel part of a huge family of likeminded people and I genuinely know I can achieve my dreams. They lay out a super clear path ahead for any kind of career in the growing medical and recreational cannabis industry, providing incredible training seminars and course manuals. Not only do they do courses, they have so many resources to help you find work to break into the industry, and you can even send them your CV for advice. I’m blown away by HempStaff.

I've personally known about Hempstaff for some years now but now that I've decided to immerse myself in the Cannibus industry I've used them for several reasons. Rosie is amazing and if there is one thing you should know, it's you will definitely leave their classes and sessions more informed, confident and prepared no matter what you're looking to get out of the industry!!
Vickey Hill
Hey Everyone, I am Vickey Hill who love the people, and instructors for this company I give 10 all the way. My life is changing great because of the time and knowledge they are teaching. Thank you. I plan on being an owner of a Dispensary one day.

Amber Dixon
I've taken both the manager course and the basic course, and they had my attention the entire 3 hours! They were absolutely full of knowledge and wisdom, and I absorbed every bit of it! Looking forward to the advanced class this weekend!!
Zainub Anderson
I took: Basic Dispensary Training, Cannabis & Hemp Sales Training, and Advanced Cannabis Training course, they gave me confidence and built my knowledge base into a more sophisticated knowledge so that I can think and speak intelligently to make me prepared in the industry.I wanted in person classes at first but as I think about it, it's no different and it's a benefit that they are online because this means convenient opportunity. I don't want to wait a year or even a couple of months to take these classes! They are in a good rotation!
Kima Desjuan

I had an amazing experience taking the Dispensary Training class and the Advanced Cannabis class. After only a month I've had a phone interview and got called back for a face to face interview which was today! Thank you Rosie, Joe, Brittany, and the rest of the HempStaff team!
Lincoln DeWitt
HempStaff is great! Rosie and Joe were fantastic teachers. It was a great experience to listen to people who are truly passionate about their field of work. I highly recommend HempStaff to anyone who wants to get into the cannabis industry!
Malik Church (NomadThirteen)
HempStaff was an excellent choice for someone with not much cannabis experience or knowledge like myself. They provided a great coarse which has helped increase my confidence and understanding of this new and fast growing industry,
D Higgins
As a Gen X professional looking to find a more personally fulfilling career, the medical marijuana industry sparked my interest as it is new in my state and I can utilize a specific skill set in which I have an abundance of experience. While researching the medical marijuana industry, I came across HempStaff and took their Basic Training course. I was quite pleased with the content and pace of the course. Knowledge is power and I gained more insight of the industry than I initially anticipated. I am looking forward to learning even more as well as securing a job in a field that I am passionate about. Thank you Rosie and Joe for your information and inspiration!
Jeff Myers
I took the Basic and Advance courses in October. The instructors provided a wealth of information that I was able to use on my interview with Trulieve, which is expanding in my state. Loved the informaiton on Terpenes and Flavonoids, since I had a background as a Barista and learned about pairings of food with coffee or tea. Now I can doing pairings with not only cannabis and food, but also coffee, tea, and wine due to the flavonoids within each. The interview went well and I was offered the job before it ended. I'm presently scheduled to start work in December.
Lisa Ropka
I am beyond satisfied with the two online training classes I have taken. I am so thankful for finding Hemp Staff. Rosie and Joe are great at covering all the information. They are very Professional and valuable when explaining all of the questions anyone had in the group. I will be signing up for more of the classes as new ones are being added. Thank You, Rosie & Joe You two Rock ! Lisa Ropka
Andrea Woodward
I took the Maryland dispensary training course first in 2018 with Farrah and it was excellent. Using the resume template helped tremendously! After 2 months of applying for jobs I landed interviews with 3 dispensaries and was just hired! Just took the course again for a refresher and Rosie and Joe were wonderful. Great for updates and still learning new things! I highly recommend this to anyone looking to get into the industry.
Down to earth staff and helps you every step of the way for classes! They go the extra mile for you
Crystal Paulino
They were AMAZING!!! Farrah and the other instructor were very honest but very heart felt. They were not afraid to be open and trusting with us. They shared their own personal stories while strengthening us a team. They were open and informative about what we needed to learn and expect. I would love to be apart of this again (: I highly recommend !

The staff was very well informed on the cannabis industry and the class was extremely helpful because of them. The passion of these people shows through their presentation, making it clear I chose the right class haha. I loved the interactivity and their ability to answer any questions we had during the class. Definitely recommend to anyone trying to become a bud tender in a medical/rec. state!

Great experience, instructors are knowledgeable and extremely caring about what they teach. Will return to the class again to learn more.
Kelli Durham
I loved this class! So much great information and the ladies running the training were knowledgeable and truly passionate about cannabis. My only complaint is that it wasn't longer (which in the bigger picture isn't actually bad, I don't think). I highly recommend taking this course!

Just got home from taking the class this morning and WoW!!! Tons of info in this class and I will be back in December for a refresher for sure. If you're looking to get in the Medical Cannabis Industry then this is a must do class. I knew I was going to learn a lot more about Cannabis in general but I'm in knowledge overload right now. The staff was incredible to talk with and extremely knowledgeable about the history, growth, medical uses and both Federal and State laws as well. Awesome, awesome class!!!
Margot Cardinale
HempStaff is a top notch recruitment and educational company that provides positive and accurate information regarding the legal medical cannabis industry. The Dispensary Training course is incredibly informative and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in entering the industry, or simply learning about medical cannabis - you will learn a ton from an amazing, friendly & professional staff.

This company is super awesome. They take the time to educate and answer questions and they are great people too.
Maigan Lopez
Cannabis Education is key if we want this industry to grow (no pun intended) in the right direction. Erasing stigma and bringing the truth about the benefits of the cannabis plant will only help everyone in the future. HempStaff is Doing this. Keep up the good fight guys and gals.
Sammie MCcoy
Love what this company stands for!! So informative!

This company is amazing! I've seen personally how hard they work and the time and energy put into the classes presented. I took the class and now work as a recruiter at Hempstaff, they prepared me for employment and then employed me! Five stars all day!
