Science of Cannabis, Certificate


Maximum Credit Toward Degree Studies - up to 9 units pending approval of the student’s Faculty office

The Science of Cannabis Certificate of Completion is a collaborative program involving the Peter Boris Centre for Addictions Research, the Michael G. DeGroote Centre for Medicinal Cannabis Research, and the Centre for Continuing Education. The purpose of the program is to provide a substantive grounding in the scientific study of cannabis and the evidence base pertaining to its therapeutic applications and risks/harms.  The program will not explore the cultivation/agricultural aspects of cannabis or the hemp industry. While there will be some reference to the commercialization of cannabis, cannabis as a business enterprise is not the focus of the program. Participants in the program will be required to successfully complete the three courses in the program in order to receive a Certificate of Completion. The courses will be offered in online format.
