About The College

The Cannabis College
information centre

The Cannabis College offers free advice on safe recreational Cannabis use in addition to educating the public about the many uses of the hemp plant. Guided tours of our Cannabis garden allow us to illustrate our information with a beautiful, completely bio-organic example of indoor growing.

With humble beginnings in 1998 as a room of bare bricks and newspaper cuttings, the College is celebrating its ten-year anniversary this year. The progress of the College (both in the info centre as well as the garden) has been marked by a few big changes. Briefly hosting around 100 plants and then a more humble five, the original College was lost to a fire in 2002, leading to a renovation of the floor hosting the information. The garden, luckily, suffered only minor smoke damage and had recently been reduced to the number now remaining in the College. The latest installation of the garden is still bio-organically grown and now has a photo display illustrating the three main stages of Cannabis plant development.

As much as we all love the garden, the Cannabis College exists in order to provide information on all aspects of Cannabis and hemp.

In this changing era of confusing and often hypocritical drug laws, we feel that it is important to educate the public on the entire history and usage of the plant in order to promote intelligent and informed debates.

All are welcome in the College (children 12 and under see the garden for free!) regardless of age, bias or experience level. We will thoroughly answer any question related to Cannabis or hemp and are also able to provide hard copies of all of our print info as well. Feel free to ask about medical Cannabis, nutritional hemp seeds and oils, and the myriad industrial applications for the hemp plant: building materials, textiles and paper, sporting goods, etc. You can also receive cultivation information while enjoying our lovely organic flowering garden.

The information centre has also been updated, including some new displays and exciting merchandise. Small trinkets like badges and stickers have a fresh look and we now offer books by highly reputable and knowledgeable authors. To help spread the word the College has adopted an improved design on our logo merchandise, retailing shirts and hooded jumpers that are constructed of a blend of organically-grown hemp, bamboo and soy fibres and are the latest trend in the hemp fashion industry.

As activists, the Cannabis College is a visible presence at the annual Cannabis and hemp expositions, festivals, demonstrations and competitions. We also host both private and public events within the industry, so please contact us if you would like a private class!
