If you’ve ever wanted to grow your own marijuana, make homemade edibles, or even brush up on the legality and business of weed, then THC University is for you.
It’s Colorado’s first professional cannabis cultivation program, and its educational classroom is located on Auraria Campus.
Matt Jones, Freeman Lafluer, and Ted Smith make up the staff that runs the operations from a rented room in the Tivoli. Beginning in 2013, THC U classes have been structured into three programs that come with matching certifications: Budtender, Indoor Growing, and Master Growing.
Prices start at $500 for the budtender program and rise to $1,500 for the Master Growing program. The school also offers online versions of the courses that bring the price ranges down to $200–$650. Additionally, if the time and money are still too much of a commitment, THC University also offers individual classes from each course—$200 for an in-person class and $100 for the online version.
As far as legal concerns, as long as you are over the age of 21, don’t bring actual marijuana to the class, and shell out the big bucks to practice with tomato plants—since it is illegal to bring cannabis to the campus—then there is no reason for concern.
A new session is set to begin March 30th, last approximately two hours, and include a test at the end of each class. Their subject matter will range from growing 101, lighting, cooking and infusion, soil nutrients, law and business, and more.
