Why Oaksterdam University

Considering enrolling in an OU course? Scroll down to see why we are the world's premier Cannabis College

You want to know your institution of learning will be there for you in the future, and has been around long enough to prioritize what YOU need to know in the curriculum. You want your school to have a campus; a tangible place you can visit, get hands on, network with like-minded professionals, and meet the OU team. You want your professors and instructors to be experienced specifically in the field they teach and able to share valuable life experience along with actionable education, not just a personality with no credibility or a lack of comprehensive experience. Oaksterdam instruction is based on cultivating valuable content to help you identify and reach your goals.

Go to the original educational institution that all others have based themselves on. Oaksterdam University has the depth and breadth you have been looking for in launching, or improving, your cannabis experience from patient to professional, regular folks to regulators. OU has a decade of proving our moral imperative: to teach you what you need to know before teaching you what you want to know, which will set you up for success, prepare you for the worst, and help you bridge to your own success.
