Cannabis Pests, Fungi, and Diseases Program

Pests can be a nightmare, but you don’t have to give up and let them take over your crop. You can take control of the situation whether you grow indoors or outdoors. You will learn the keys to a successful harvest to avoid pitfalls and take care of threats as soon as they surface. We will teach you early warning signs so you can protect your crop. You will explore the identification, detection, treatment, and control methods for all the most common pests.

This requires that studies on the pathogens potentially affecting cannabis plants be conducted so that methods to manage emerging diseases and molds can be developed. Cannabis plants are propagated from cuttings that are rooted and grown vegetatively, following which they are transferred to specifically reduced lighting regimes (photoperiod) conditions to induce flowering.

Organisms that cause continued irritation (disease) include viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasitic plants, and nematodes. Plant diseases are almost always caused by fungi and rarely caused by bacteria.  In people, this fungi-to-bacteria ratio is reversed. Few Cannabis diseases can be transmitted to humans, but there are exceptions.
Some diseases prevail in Cannabis fiber and oilseed crops, other diseases predominate in drug crops.  Disease prevalence varies geographically. For instance, many virus diseases are limited by the range of their insect vectors. Disease prevalence shifts between greenhouse crops and outdoor crops. Disease prevalence alters as plants grow from seedlings to flowering adults.

Accessibility Compliant Platform

One of the biggest challenges that learners face today is "accessibility" in their eLearning solutions. Our platform is American Disability Act (ADA), Accessible Canada Act, etc. compliant, and why we started our "Industry Impact Program".

We are sensitive to disabilities so we provide closed-captioning (sub-titles) for hearing-impaired and screen readers for visually-impaired individuals who want to learn. We have worked extensively to MEET these "accessibility" standards.

Our platform is composed of a complex system with many aspects of development that are always evolving so "accessibility" is NOT a state so it's a continuous process of improvement in response to our learners and platform functionality.

Our Founder's Message

"How do you describe your training? Underwhelming? Non-existent? If you've said anything other than a "well-oiled machine," then you’re at the RIGHT place if you want to transform ordinary training into a perfected eLearning solution.

Is training actually making a MEASUREABLE difference to you? I often ask this question about my "learning experiences" when I got started in cannabis, I didn't like the answer. That's why we're here, so you will always be a cannabis expert.

In the spirit of "open-sourcing" our eLearning solutions you’ll find our ground-breaking training, industry strategies, and Ed-Tech to learn everything you need (or actually GROW your biz) and much more... without all of those headaches."
