Welcome to the Alaska Cannabis Institute

Wondering why you should attend an event? Here’s just a few reasons:

why to attend an ACI seminar


Welcome to the Alaska Cannabis Institute and the exciting CannaBiz industry. The opportunity to enter an industry on the ground floor comes around very rarely in most peoples lives.  Many say it is no longer a question of whether cannabis will be legalized in the US, rather a question of when and how it will be legalized. Alaska will vote on November 4, 2014 to allow adults, 21 and older, to own, smoke and buy marijuana. If passed, Alaska will become the third state to legalize recreational marijuana following Colorado and Washington.

The Alaska Cannabis Institute is excited to lead the way in Alaska by offering two-day seminars to help Alaskan’s open a Cannabis Business, or “CannaBiz”. Day 1 will cover the legalization of marijuana, marijuana tax policy, and the juxtaposition between Alaska and Federal marijuana law and policies. Day 1 also features a comprehensive overview on setting-up and running a CannaBiz while maintaining compliance. Topics to be covered include: CannaBiz planning, CannaBiz accounting, CannaBiz banking, CannaBiz site selection, and more.

Day 2 will present a comprehensive overview of marijuana horticulture and growing. It is so important for anybody getting involved with the cannabis industry to have a broad understanding of how to grow marijuana. The Alaska Cannabis Institute provides: information on setting up an indoor grow for year-round production, garden calendars and checklists, lighting options and electricity savings. Day 2 also examines lab testing for contaminants and potency as well as an advanced overview of point-of-sale software which will track your product from seed-to-sale.

The Alaska Cannabis Institute is proud to partner with and provide access to industry leaders. Lecturers include local marijuana experts, as well as professionals from Washington State and Colorado (see a list of ACI Speakers). There will also be a Q&A panel at the end of each day to answer your specific questions, as well as a networking event at the end of Day 1. You will have direct access to lawyers, accountants, dispensary owners, master growers and other industry experts for only a fraction of what you might normally pay these same professionals for their private services.

People are often so eager to get started in the cannabis industry, that they don’t take the time to get the education and knowledge they need in order to avoid costly mistakes. Ensure your business is a success and take the time to gain the knowledge, resources, and network you need to succeed with your CannaBiz. Knowledge is mandatory in the Green Rush. Don’t get a flat tire by running into a “pothole”. Enroll in one of our 2-day seminars, your one-stop shop to your own successful business in the growing CannaBiz Industry. Reserve Your Seat Today
