Color Up is carrying on its commitment to cannabis education with two new initiatives. The CBD brand’s Cannabis Master Program for the Spa Professional, which launched in 2019 with tracks for estheticians and massage therapists, now features an additional track specifically designed for wellness professionals, such as yogis, fitness instructors, nutritionists, and holistic practitioners. The online course is fully self-led and includes classes on the history of cannabis, its modern day uses, the science behind it, and the various ways in which CBD can help heal the body. The new classes are taught by Emily Davis, LE, president of education at Color Up, and Liz Aigner, LMT, LE, CYT, vice president of education at Color Up, and successful completion of course is rewarded with a certificate of attendance.
Additionally, not only is there a discount available to those who register for the new track through the end of this year, the company is also offering several scholarships for licensed estheticians and licensed massage therapists: two partial scholarships and two full scholarships. Recipients will receive either a complimentary Skincare Retail Starter Kit or a complimentary Massage Retail Kit. The deadline for entries is Sept. 30, and the winners will be announced Oct. 7.
