Alumni Success Story: Mai-Lan Richards

SelfMai-Lan Richards
Indoor Horticulture Seminar - Basic and Advanced (June 11-14, 2016)

Why have you attended Oaksterdam?
I have always been an advocate of cannabis for over ten years, but since it was such a bad “drug” and illegal no one spoke about the medicinal values it provides to patients.  This is the reason I have chosen to attend OU to gain the proper knowledge of the medicine instead of opinions.  I have a scientific background, so I believe continuous data and research is the proven results of it being beneficial or not

How has it helped or inspire you?
Words cannot describe the incredible experience I had at OU.  This place has helped me understand the quality of the medicine and how it can benefit the world to a stress free mentality.  It has inspired me to educate others on what strain or method is best for certain ailments or lifestyles.  

What would you tell prospective students?
If you want to learn about quality not quantity, OU is the place to go.  I’m not saying they don’t teach you ways to increase your yield, but sometimes quality is better than quantity.  Regardless of what the intentions are, OU is the best cannabis school in the world so it wouldn’t hurt to have them on your resume if you plan on being in the industry.
