Event Partners

Trichome Institute

We at C.E.A.S.E. are honored to be partnering with The Trichome Institute. Founded in 2014 The Trichome Institute is a premier organization for certified cannabis education. After a decade in the cannabis industry founders Max Montrose and Jim Nathansan realized there was a lack of science based information and sought out to remedy this. By January 2014 they had become a definitive voice on professional certifications, consumer education, and quality assurance providing the industry with the best information available to educate recreational consumers, medical patients and industry professionals.

They produce original curriculum for all of their courses and have their content approved by the highest authorities in cannabis law and medicine like The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and the Marijuana Enforcement Division. They currently are breaking new ground both by creating and teaching the worlds only cannabis sommelier program—Interpening®, and with their personal cannabis quality certification program TAG.

Make sure you take every chance you get to soak up some Trichome Institute knowledge at the Cannabis Education Advocacy Symposium & Expo February 24th in Oklahoma City, OK.
