Training and Education

Hi Friends, greetings from the middle of the world, Ecuador.

As the deadline for the regulation is close, October 19th, we started to train and educate small farmers about Medicinal Cannabis and Industrial Hemp. Here are some photos of the 2 workshops we have done in a small town near my city, Riobamba, province of Chimborazo.

(We are looking for funding for this educational project, soon we’ll have a Crowdfunding for this).

Would love your input!


@paulcoyote, fantastic news and great to see your movement going forward. I am not to sure about your laws, but a good way to get attention to people that may be interested is offering good seeds as a draw card. eg come to our presentation and get a pack of 10 seeds to start. People are always looking for seeds and good seeds are hard to source for people that dont know the cannabis industry.

Maybe also do a practical workshop, where people learn and get dirty with their hands. Get them to do some productive labour, say for instance starting a vegetable garden with cannabis.

Great work and well done for teaching people about cannabis. It takes alot of work.



Thanks for your wishes @chrisj!

Next workshop will be how to make Cannabis ointment with eucalyptus and rosemary.

We can’t give away seeds because it is still illegal. Still can’t buy cannabis or hemp seeds legally, so, everything will be with placebos.

The garden is a great idea, we have done it before with medic,inal plants only, now we have to add Cannabis.

Have a nice weekend!


That is the problem with legalisation I see all over. ITs like saying growing tomatoes is legal but you cant buy or trade tomato seeds legally, so essentially making one a criminal again. In South Africa seeds are still illegal, but we have about 40 plus seedbanks distributing seeds now. Sunny South Africa for shady people. Have a good weekend.

Next workshop will be how to make Cannabis ointment with eucalyptus and rosemary.

I would love to attend a workshop like that.


How do I go about enrolling in the Educational program about the above topic please.


Awesome idea, and I’m very much interested in the program.

Do you have or know a store address, I would like to see it by Google Maps Satellite, yes real time images

There is a couple of places in Quito known as growshops.

They are not really “grow shops”. They sell parafernalia and some soil and nutrients.

Could be a good idea for bussines!

Cool and I just want to see a picture of a new place. I have interesting to me. Now I can just use Google Earth

I was waiting to get approval to use the satellite for a place where I have not been to yet. Google Earth what I did see was a part that reminded me of Jamaica. I stayed for the whole 21 days. is the maximum amount of time to stay in Jamaica
