OC Cannabis University Now Offers Classes en Español
Time was, all the good weed came from Mexico. After all, that's where it'd been grown for who knows how long, up in the hills of Sinaloa, Michoacan and Oaxaca. Now, the good stuff is grown north of the border, and with the legalization of cannabis for medical purposes now 15 years in the making, it's big business. There are seemingly countless strains to keep track of when it comes to California's biggest cash crop, and new techniques and technologies are being developed all the time that any serious young student of cannabis cultivation needs to know.
So it's perhaps at least somewhat ironic that GGECO University, a Rancho Santa Margarita-based cannabis-educational outfit whose acronym stands for God's Green Earth, is now offering classes in Spanish. The school, sort of a SoCal version of Oaksterdam or a marijuana version of ITT Tech, has just announced it is offering Spanish-language versions of its popular two-step educational course in cannabis.
GGECO's basic course covers cannabis law, medical cannabis, cooking, horticulture and budtending, while an advanced course features classes on running a dispensary or nonprofit, as well as more horticulture classes. For more information, you can visit GGECO's Spanish-language website here.
