SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico May 23, 2018/Canna-B News/ — The Northern Michigan University has been offering a degree in Medicinal Plant Chemistry since last year. It’s the only degree of it’s kind combining horticulture, chemistry, biology and entrepreneurship. For third and forth year students, the University developed an Internship program where students are placed across different businesses related to the cannabis industry, including attorneys, media, fertilizer, lighting, scientific instrumentation, packaging, marketing, dispensing, growing and extraction.
Interested on having your business participate in the Medicinal Plant Chemistry Program?
We contacted Dr. Mark Paulsen, head of the Chemistry Department at the Northern Michigan University about the Internship Program. “We are happy to consider business and non-profits in Puerto Rico for Internship” -said Dr. Paulsen.
What this means for cannabis business and organizations in Puerto Rico?
It’s an opportunity to have knowledgeable and well-qualified third and fourth year students in internship positions, making valuable contributions to the Medicinal Cannabis Industry in Puerto Rico. Since 2015 the island recognized the valid and legal therapeutic applications of cannabis products for medicinal consumption.
The historical stigma associated with cannabis is quickly changing, and although there is progress in businesses related to the cannabis economy, there is a major gap in educational opportunities available to prepare people for this industry. No other 4-year undergraduate degree program in the world combines rigorous coursework in chemistry and biology with research and hands on instrumental analysis built into the curriculum to prepare its graduates for a career in the cannabis industry.
The additional focus on entrepreneurship and laboratory accreditation standards assure interns will not only be qualified to perform the instrumental analysis in a laboratory, but will also be empowered to build their own testing laboratory, dispensary, and growing operation from the ground up. This expands the possibilities for more clinical and scientific research to be conducted in Puerto Rico and a great opportunity to learn more about this medicinal plant with the assistance of qualified interns from the Northern Michigan University.
Help them by letting them help you! Internships offer immediate assistance to support your cannabis related business, getting new ideas and viewpoints. It is a smart recruitment strategy for your business, allowing you to nurture and feed your full-time hiring efforts. When your business participates in the internship program you get knowlegdable interns with techniques on extraction and sample preparation, instrumental analysis and statistical processing.
