The South African cannabis education platform, Cheeba Cannabis Academy, welcomes students at the new campus in the beautiful Bitou River area of Plettenberg Bay. The first campus is based in the Vaal Triangle.
So far, the academy has educated over 200 students who have obtained an internationally recognized qualification. The cannabis courses allow students to learn a diverse range of skills in the cannabis industry. The hope is to get many of them in industry related jobs and to spark cannabis entrepreneurial spirit.
Garden Route benefits
Cheeba Africa’s CEO and co-founder, Trenton Birch says, “We have had an incredible journey with Garden Route Retreat so far, and we are only just getting started. Garden Route Retreat has an impeccable commitment to social and economic development in their region. They support a number of black-owned startups including Canna Tours and the House of Rastafari growers co-op and have been deeply committed to empowering disadvantaged communities in the area through Cannabis. This is the truly healthy, collaborative spirit of the broader Cannabis community that Cheeba Africa also embraces and promotes. We are perfectly aligned partners in now bringing world class Cannabis educational opportunities to the Garden Route area.”
