Cannabis school to help South Africa hop on to hemp train

The cannabis and hemp train is on the move, and South Africa and Africa at large need to jump on before it passes us by.

This was the takeaway from the launch of the Cheeba Cannabis Academy’s training center, in partnership with Vital Veggie and Training Force, which took place on Tuesday in Midrand, Johannesburg.  

Cheeba CEO Trenton Birch said the academy sought to “bring this industry online, which is super important for our economy, for job creation, and for the overall planet.”

Hemp is increasingly being used as a food source in medicine and has textile and industrial applications, including as a substitute for plastic. Hemp seeds are particularly rich in healthy fats, including omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which are known for improving heart health by reducing cholesterol and blood pressure.
