Cannabis and education. Programs and resources

Ever since millennials became the primary consumers of capitalism and began occupying leadership positions worldwide, the prejudices regarding cannabis started to disappear. This has led to reforms in legislation regarding its possession and consumption and changes in how cannabis is approached in the educational sphere.

Prejudices in society

For almost a century, misleading myths and prejudices regarding the cannabis plant had been promoted. Humanity had been using the plant for thousands of years, since 3000 BC, for recreational, medicinal, and religious purposes. However, during the 20th century, societal attitudes shifted, and unfounded falsehoods and concepts were disseminated, leading most countries to classify cannabis as an illegal substance.

Now, an increasing number of countries are legalizing or decriminalizing marijuana consumption. It is only a matter of time before the majority of the world agrees on regulating cannabis instead of prohibiting it.

Cannabis in educational institutions

One of the most significant changes in society has occurred within educational institutions, where discussions about cannabis with students have already begun. Various organisations and groups are developing educational programs to inform students about the risks and benefits of cannabis, as well as to promote responsible and safe consumption.

These programs address topics such as addiction, long-term effects of consumption, and laws and regulations. By providing accurate and evidence-based information, these programs help students make informed decisions and avoid the risks associated with improper marijuana consumption.


In addition to education on responsible consumption, cannabis has become a subject of study in various academic institutions. There are schools and universities that offer courses related to the plant, including studies on its history, medical and legal effects, as well as its impact on society. These courses provide a deeper understanding and offer opportunities for research and advancement in the field of science and medicine.

Accessible Information

Another valuable resource is specialised libraries and databases. More and more libraries are adding collections and resources about cannabis, making it easier for students and teachers to access updated and reliable information. These specialised libraries include books, scientific journals, research reports, and other materials from trustworthy sources that help debunk myths and learn from modern science. 

Mobile Applications

Technology has played a crucial role in information dissemination. The emergence of mobile applications and online platforms has facilitated access to information by providing data on cannabis strains, cannabinoid profiles, recommended dosages, and consumption methods. Some of these tools also include consumption tracking and journals to help users monitor and manage their cannabis consumption.

Reliable Sources

While technology and internet use have made information more accessible, not all sources should be regarded equally. It is always advisable to obtain data from reliable and verifiable sources. That is why it is important for schools and universities to teach students where and how to obtain credible sources.

Advantages of Legal Cannabis

In countries where cannabis consumption is decriminalized, we are fortunate to have access to dispensaries and weed clubs where staff members are trained to provide guidance. For example, here in Barcelona, these "asos" are safe spaces where we can consume and meet like-minded people, but also learn from or consult experts in the field.

On the other hand, the legality of cannabis allows consumers to know the exact contents of products. With proper labeling regulations that communicate the percentages of compounds and cannabinoids, each person will know what they are consuming and be able to make better choices based on what their body tolerates or needs.
