Cannabiz Medical Marijuana Academy Launches Website

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 31, 2013) - A new business focused on educating the populace on every aspect of the medical marijuana industry has launched in Northern California. Cannabiz -- "an education for the nation" ( -- is a comprehensive online resource for patients, as well as growers and dispensary operators on how to legally access medical marijuana, the medical benefits of cannabis, lab testing and analysis, state-of-the-art hydroponics and cultivation, as well as business and accounting issues related to the burgeoning industry.

Cannabiz also offers hands on consulting in states where medical marijuana has recently been legalized, helping patients, dispensaries and others involved in legitimizing the industry, including municipalities involved in drafting regulations for medical marijuana collectives.

Scot Candell, the founder of Cannabiz, has been a leading medical marijuana attorney in California for over 15 years. He was recently quoted in the New York Times (October 27, 2013; "Few Problems with Cannabis for California"), saying: "California has learned a lot in its years of dealing with a legal form of marijuana, but there are a lot of states that are just now going through it, and there are things they need to know."

As medical marijuana becomes more accepted elsewhere, Cannabiz wants to share the knowledge acquired in California with other states that are just now grappling with the issue. In addition to providing online classes taught by highly qualified instructors who are renowned in their professions, Cannabiz will send its experts where needed to set up state-of-the-art gardens and dispensaries.

"We created this company with the belief that knowledge is power and that everyone should have access to information that will enable them to make educated decisions regarding cannabis," said Mr. Candell.

Medical marijuana is now legal in 20 states and Washington D.C. and has grown into a multi- billion dollar industry. According to Bloomberg Industries, national legalization of medical marijuana has the potential to create a $35-$45 billion a year industry.

"This is an inherently contradictory industry and one that requires exceptional honesty and integrity which have been the benchmarks for this new educational endeavor," said Mr. Candell.
