Unlike most house plants, growing cannabis takes a bit of effort and knowledge—especially if when it comes to plants that produce high yields with medicinal effects. This self-paced asynchronous course gives home growers a foundation for growing their best cannabis. Students will have access to 10+ hours of video content with associated readings, as well as interactive discussion boards with the instructor. Course content will include information related to indoor and outdoor growing, the plant life cycle from seed to harvest, how to properly dry, trim, cure, and store your cannabis, and more. The instructor, Rich Koloszyc, is a grower and breeder who focuses on outdoor growing in the Northeast. He believes in regenerative agriculture, plant medicine, and the right to grow your own cannabis. 

The New York Marijuana Regulation & Taxation Act permits the home cultivation of medical cannabis for certified patients and designated caregivers registered in the Medical Cannabis Program. The state is projected to allow non-medical home growing to start in the Summer of 2024.
