Today might be your last chance to grab seats for a five-week seminar designed to give local entrepreneurs an edge in the growing U.S. cannabis industry.

The Houston Academy of Cannabis Science, which is part of Pharmacology University, will start hosting classes every Saturday starting this weekend at 8204 Westglen Drive.

Tickets cost $420 per person, and as of Tuesday morning, roughly 15 of 50 seats were still available, organizers said.

Illustrating the growth of the drug’s medical uses in Texas, Dr. Leavery Davidson, the academy’s CEO, cited the accessibility of CBD oil, a hemp extract, at smoke shops throughout the state.

She also pointed to the recently passed farm bill, which, among other things, legalizes hemp for farmers.

“As CBD stores and other things are opening up, people will be able to have more networking opportunities for jobs,” she said. “So that’s pretty exciting.”

The first Saturday class will cover the history of cannabis and hemp, as well as federal and state laws that apply to medical practices, starting a business and investing in the industry.
