“Todd is extremely knowledgeable about genetic, soil, and plant biology.  He helped me tie my growing practices together for better plant health and helped to fill-in gaps of knowledge.  I now understand how the various effectors of plant growth interact with each other and how all the plant and environmental factors shape the growing environment.  Thanks, Todd!”

“I would highly recommend this course to anyone intending to grow Cannabis.  The course goes into enough depth to provide a complete understanding of the requirements of each stage of the plant life cycle and how to provide them in a sustainable manner.  Todd’s knowledge of Cannabis is exceptional and he continues his education in his own garden.  His delivery of his knowledge is pleasant and easy to stay focused on.”
