Thanks to Color Up Therapeutics, you really can major in cannabis (take that, mom and dad)—the company has launched a Cannabis Master Program for spa professionals.
The online course for massage therapists and estheticians offers two tracks, one for massage therapists/body workers (consisting of seven lectures), and one for estheticians (with eight). Topics include:
- The Endocannabinoid System: An In-Depth Look
- The Magic of Cannabinoids
- Healing from the Inside Out
- The Science of the Skin
- Give Yourself a Raise: Retail Selling
“Set to become the gold standard for therapists everywhere, Color Up’s Cannabis Master Program for the spa professional is the most comprehensive, in-depth cannabis education program available today,” said Color Up co-owner and COO Shauna Blanch. “Our team of estheticians, massage therapists, chemists and cannabis business professionals have been studying skincare and cannabis for more than 15 years. The Cannabis Master Program is a compilation of that research and learning.”
Color Up hopes to grow the program into a full university for the at-home user and the spa professional. The company, which has brought on more than 1,500 professional accounts in the last year, hopes the training program will help professionals incorporate cannabis education and products into their own curriculums as well.
Said Blanch: ““If we can educate our professionals, they can broaden the community more than we ever could alone. The Cannabis Master Program provides the information needed to not only offer CBD in a professional setting, but to become a cannabis expert.”
