Color Up Awards Seven Scholarships to the Cannabis Master Program

Color Up’s Cannabis Master Program for Licensed Professionals has received nearly 1,600 enrollments on the online platform since launching in 2019. Designed for spa, skincare, and wellness pros, seven practitioners (out of 40 applicants) recently received scholarships to continue their education. The Master Program educates and prepares licensed professionals to perform CBD massage and esthetics services confidently. The self-led, online course includes Color Up’s core classes on the history of cannabis, to modern-day uses and the science behind its efficacy in partnership with the endocannabinoid system.  

Master Program instructors are Liz Aigner, LMT, LE and Ashley Deckard, LE. Aigner is the director of education for Color Up and a licensed massage therapist and esthetician who specializes in Traditional Chinese Fire Cupping, sound healing, and professional CBD education. Deckard is the assistant director of education for Color Up. She has been a licensed esthetician since 2013, specializing in holistic skincare and gua sha.
