Frequently Asked Questions

Who can take a Cannabis Growing Course?

I don't live in Colorado, can I still take a GROW-101 Course?


A: Yes. The Grow School welcomes Out-of-State students, and has welcomed students come from as far away as the Japan! Currently about 90% of The Grow School’s students are from Out-of-State. If you can’t come to Colorado to take a Course, you can take the same course ONLINE from home!

Why do you teach the soil method? Why not hydroponics?

Soil cultivation is one of the simplest and most forgiving of all mediums to grow cannabis in, and the final product generally has a better taste. The goal of these courses is to teach high quality cannabis growing using the most natural and/or organic means possible. Once the student perfects indoor growing using the soil method, he/she will have a strong technical foundation that can be applied in the future if the student wishes to experiment with other, more complicated growing techniques such as hydroponics, Nutrient-Film Technique, DWC (deep-water culture), etc.

How does the 1 year of FREE Garden Support work?

If the student adheres to the guidelines and principles taught by The Grow School, he/she should have continued growing success. However, if a problem should arise that the student can’t solve using techniques taught by The Grow School, we will personally assist the student in remediating the situation by e-mail,text, or by telephone.

A: Yes. The Grow School is 100% compliant with Colorado Amendment 64, Colorado Amendment 20, Colorado HB-1284, Colorado SB-10-109, and all Colorado State and Local Marijuana laws and ordinances. The Grow School does not sell marijuana, seeds, clones, or marijuana infused products.

Q: What about my privacy? I don't want to be on any lists regarding cannabis...


A: The Grow School takes privacy very seriously and will never sell or give out any student information without the express consent of the student.
