The Medicinal Cannabis Authority {MCA} will host a Training Workshop in Best Practices in Medicinal Cannabis Cultivation today.

The Workshop, targeting more than one hundred Local Traditional Cannabis Cultivators, seeks to ensure that this group of investors are better placed to benefit from the legal production of Medicinal Cannabis in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

The MCA said the training comes on the heels of similar activities for the local medical fraternity and staff.

It will be facilitated by Vice President of Accounts and Education at Ample Organics, Tom Ritchie.

Ample Organics is a leading provider of cannabis solutions in Canada including seed-to-sale software platform.

The MCA has entered into a partnership with the company in respect of its own national cannabis tracking software.

A presentation on the Procedures for Establishing a Bank Account for Licensed Traditional Cultivators and Employees will also form part of Tuesday’s agenda.

The session will also hear from Minister of Agriculture, Saboto Caesar and Chief Executive Officer of the Medical Cannabis Authority, Dr. Jerrol Thompson.

MCA staff members who have successfully completed the AmpleLearn Course will also be presented with their Teal certificates by Ample Representative Tom Ritchie.

Traditional cultivators will also receive certificates on completion of the training.

The event will be held at the Methodist Church Hall in from 1:00 to 5:00 this afternoon.
