The Cooperative Cannabis Academy brings experts in legal technical assistance, budgeting, accounting, cooperative development, group facilitation and business development for farmers to support their journey from conceptualizing a cooperative to forming or joining one.

Democratizing our businesses by developing a co-op sector within the cannabis industry will lead to long-term business viability and ecological sustainability for many of the small independent farms and build on the values established by our predecessors.

Issues such as terroir and appellation can be addressed and solved together with this newfound federated power of regional cooperatives. 

The CAN Academy is the first of its kind to help form and operate producers’ cooperatives, taught by the most experienced in the field. We’ve been working on this project for over 2 years now. Join us!
