Growing your own Cannabis is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have. It is one thing to grow a tomato and eat it, but it is a whole other level when you grow your own bud that can enhance your personal wellness and take you to a higher dimension, pun intended. Not that we are putting tomatoes down, we love to grow those too :-).

This course is designed for budding home growers who have some experience with growing Cannabis and aspiring growers who have not started yet but are keen to give it a try. You will be given a brief overview of the Cannabis industry and how it works, taken through the plant’s growth cycle from “seed to harvest” and be introduced to all the apparatus needed to optimise your grow.  

On completion of this course you will have a fundamental understanding how to successfully grow Cannabis indoors at home, how growing Cannabis fits into the Cannabis supply chain and how Cannabis works with our bodies. You will receive a certificate of attendance on completion of the course.

The course is facilitated by two of South Africa's top indoor home growers:
