MORE Testimonials – What our students are saying!

My name is Gino Ventrice and I work for a CBD company called Cannabreze Virginia Hemp. I just want to say I absolutely love your training academy and every one of the medical professionals involved with the courses. I have learned so much vital information and my passion for the industry continues to grow every single day. Currently, we have a corporate package set up with you and I have completed all the fundamental educational courses, including the Certified CBD Adviser course.
I really have a strong passion for not just the cannabis industry, but for assisting people with health and wellness and finding the right solution for people’s needs. I want to take my knowledge and passion to the next level and be a part of something bigger.
Thank you so much again for this opportunity and for your time. You are a huge inspiration and I want to make an impact on the world, through cannabis, just like you have.
Gino Ventrice

Icann Training Academy is a very amazing program with so many qualified professionals with historical and current knowledge of Cannabis. The support is outstanding and the instructors are really great in their area of expertise. I cannot wait to take another course like CBD and GI Health or CBD for Pain. There are numerous courses that offer more education about the medical benefits of CBD and THC. I really enjoyed taking the CBD advisor course. I learned many things that I did not even know about regarding Cannabis and the hundreds of medicinal benefits that this great plant can offer. I think the most valuable part of the course, to me, was learning about the Endocannabinoid System and how it helps to regulate our immune system. Awesome program, great instructors! This program will help anyone with a business in CBD or medical background who wants to learn about CBD.

THANK YOU ICANN & CBD Training Academy and Mr. R. Diamond.

Jeremy Cerqua

Thank you for the very informative and helpful presentation. I left knowing much more about the latest research on CBD interactions with medications and honestly feel more equipped to make decisions on products. I especially found it fascinating how genetics play a role and the way the liver uses different enzymes to work with drugs. Thanks again for the talk. advisor course.

Kirstin Berk

I am studying to be a naturopathic health and wellness coach and my mission is to offer advice and resources on natural products that can help with both physical and mental illnesses. I have severe nerve damage, fibromyalgia, and osteoarthritis and use CBD and other herbal remedies. I use CBD as an ingredient in several of my herbal products and they work wonders. So I am excited to learn more.

When my husband and I first discovered CBD and its many healing properties, we heard about this. He is now managing a CBD shop and has helped me find the right products to help my CNS disorders. I am so excited about taking these courses, I can now learn more about the plants, so I can help my husband help those looking for alternative natural products to help with their illnesses.

(ALSO, regarding a specific course:) Great information. I visited your website. I am so excited to get to know you more and learn from you. Really enjoy how this is put together. This was such a very well-organized and very informative video. Thank you.

I’m so excited and appreciative of everything the Cbd training academy has provided. Thanks again.

This was a great workshop and I took lots of notes. I had a few light bulb moments where I have noted to pay extra attention in my own undertaking of this One Page Marketing Plan. I feel I have heard, learned bits and pieces of this before, however, the layout and explanations in today’s ever-changing market have given me new and improved insight to do better. Thank you, Richard, Emily, and Maria for this wonderful collaboration.

Shamara Zinnerman

Took me 3 months of digging and researching the product before I decided to actually try it for the first time. I was reluctant because I just wanted to know as much as I possibly could about this CBD stuff. I signed up to go to CBD Expo East and then found out there was a training class being offered. I signed up in no time! All I can say it was everything I expected and then some. We heard from Doctors, Authors, Business Owners, Marketers and even learned how to make the product ourselves! Who’s an expert on CBD?! ME!!! Thanks to CBD Training Academy! Thanks
Tony Barragan

I am the Marketing Director for Clean Imagineering, a company that has been in the extraction industry for 30+ years. We are currently entering the Cannabis Extraction market and were in need of education to get us up to speed. The CBD Training Academy and ICANN have a great selection of courses with professional instructors. As a marketer for 11+ years I found that these certified courses gave me great ideas for strategy and tactics to implement into our emerging Cannabis marketing plan. Highly recommend! (from Yelp)

So far I am enjoying learning about CBD. I deal with chronic back pain and after trying CBD salve I found that it really helped more than I had hoped. I’d then like to take my training and be able to help others, a world with pain isn’t a world at all…it’s a prison. I’m really excited to start learning from all of these amazing people. It’s exactly what I want to do, help others and it’s all great!
