Master of Science in Medical Cannabis Science and Therapeutics (MCST)

The Master of Science (MS) in Medical Cannabis Science and Therapeutics is the first graduate program in the United States that is dedicated to the study of medical cannabis. Many of our Cannabis Professionals worked hard over 2-years to earn this prestigious degree. The Cannabis Professionals with this degree have the education and knowledge necessary to support the medical cannabis industry, add to existing medical cannabis research, and develop well-informed medical cannabis policy.

This distinction is why you can be confident to engage and hire our MCST Cannabis Professionals at the Cannabis Wellness Group.
