What Our Students Say

Want to hear what our students have to say about Northeastern Institute of Cannabis? Read on!

When I first discovered NIC was opening I was ecstatic to enroll and learn about cannabis and the growing industry behind it. Every single class had left me with a sense of sheer excitement, and I felt the immense value of the program building after every lecture I attended. The instructors alone have played the biggest part in that feeling, and have given me an educational experience like I’ve never had - or truly enjoyed - before. Cara and the administration has shown to be so helpful and caring as well, and the overall environment at the school is laid back, a welcoming space to those who wish to learn. Needless to say I am very happy to have attended NIC! I feel extremely knowledgeable after completing the competency program. If advanced classes are ever offered, you can bet I will be back again.

NIC is a perfect example of when an institute of learning is there for the betterment of the students. The school not only give you an education in cannabis but a foundation to be a successful individual in your dream career.

Before NIC came about, I was truly lost without a sense of direction with what I wanted to do with my life. Ever since I took my first step into the building, the professors and staff have been nothing but warm and welcoming. Their passion and knowledge are unmatched, and while I've only been enrolled for a month I already feel confident that I made the right decision to join NIC and pursue a career in the budding medical marijuana industry.

After graduating from NIC I feel that I have a far greater understanding of the various aspects of the cannabis industry that only a professional institute could provide. It's instilled in me a confidence that I now have the knowledge, to compliment the pre existing passion, to excel in the blossoming business that is cannabis. I am excited to be a part of this movement and to see what the future holds.

Going back to school as an adult can be scary...however, NIC has made it so easy and fun with their flexible scheduling and informative curriculum. It has been an amazing experience to be a part of a growing industry, and surrounded by such passionate, skilled and informative teachers and staff! I have had an amazing experience at NIC, and look forward to taking additional classes NIC may add to their continuing eduction program in the future.

In the early fall of 2014 I had no idea what I wanted to do for a career. Medical Cannabis has always been something I have been passionate about, and has helped to change my life and create a healthier and happier me. My "Aha!" moment came after seeing an advertisement for the Northeastern Institute of Cannabis. I thought to myself "Could I really turn my passion into a career?". I immediately reached out and attended an open house shortly after their opening. Immediately after and eager to learn, I enrolled. The curriculum covered all bases, giving me a well rounded knowledge preparing me for the future ahead. The teachers and staff were so unbelievably knowledgable, helpful, and passionate. They made the entire experience fun and exciting and drove me to work harder. After graduating, and with the help of the NIC staff with building my resume, I went after my dream career. In September of 2015 I was hired at New England Treatment Access, INC. as a Patient Services Associate. Flash forward to nearly a year later and I am now a Team Leader at NETA's Brookline Dispensary. Working for NETA and being able to have my dream career has been unbelievably rewarding, fulfilling, and exciting. Two years ago I would have never known that this was possible. Thank you to the entire staff of NIC for giving me the knowledge, confidence, and for driving my passion to follow my dreams.
