CBD is a single compound in the cannabis plant, from the Cannabaceae family of plants. Cannabis produces many naturally occurring compounds, including CBD.

When we consume activated cannabinoids, we can experience the therapeutic benefits of the cannabis plant.  Both CBD and THC cannabinoids, as well as the other cannabinoids found within cannabis, assist the body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS) and can contribute to greater health. These cannabinoids can be leveraged separately, or together, helping individuals improve their wellness.

Intended Audience:

This comprehensive course is for the CBD curious consumer, patients, cannabis consultants, medical professionals, budtenders and cannabis industry professionals and will take approximately 20-25 hours to complete


This course has been designed to walk you through the fundamentals of CBD and by using the science and research of how this natural medicine can possibly improve your health and wellness.

Desired Tone:

A conversational approach to articulate the science of the plant, but also professional. While the course encourages for the perpetuation of cannabis research, accuracy and up-to-date, the content should also remain free from bias.


This course is accredited with the HPCSA (Health Professions Council of South Africa) for 20 CPD points .
