Coach’s Guide to Medical Cannabis & CBD Certification

Still in its infancy, Medical Marijuana and CBD (now legal in all 50 states) offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get into the industry on the ground floor, be a pioneer in the field and help other people (and their pets) improve their health. In fact, the legal marijuana market is projected to reach $37.3 billion in sales by 2024.
