Cannabis Hemp Academy Curriculum and Instructors
The medical marijuana training curriculum was developed partially
by the Cannabis Therapy Institute, a Colorado organization that
has been a leader in medicinal cannabis education and advocacy since
2009. Instructors include Deanna Gabriel, Certified Clinical Herbalist,
Clinical Nutritionist; Dr. Robert Melamede, Cannabis Science, Inc.
and Robert J. Corry, Jr., Colorado medical marijuana attorney. Instructors
are all independently-contracted to teach courses in their specialty.
Cannabis Hemp Academy History
The Cannabis Hemp Academy had its beginnings in Colorado in 1992.
Under an educational program titled "Hemp Awareness 101",
CHA-founders offered general public education courses on cannabis,
hemp and medical marijuana through various student groups at the
University of Colorado campus. In 2009, with the increase in interest
in medical marijuana and industrial hemp in Colorado, the Cannabis
Hemp Academy expanded its course offerings and began a certification
program in cannabis and hemp through live classes. In 2014, the
CHA launched its online school to make our certification programs
available to a nationwide and international audience.
Excellence in Education

focus on a narrow range of educational offerings. The Cannabis Hemp
Academy uses our over 24 years of cannabis and hemp educational
experience to assemble the world's best cannabis and hemp experts
to provide a broad curriculum with offerings that are guaranteed
to appeal to anyone interested in cannabis, industrial hemp, or
