Cost Per Student 

Skunk Pharm Personnel teach our classes of 10 students for free, at our quiet informal setting, which keeps facility costs minimized.  Our fee is $15 per student per class, to cover the cost of the actual materials used, excluding all cannabis products. Because they are all intense compressed classes, that cost includes the gourmet soup and sandwiches that Carla serves, so that we can maintain experiment continuity over the lunch hour. Glass containers are available for taking home samples at $2 each, or you may bring your own. Only OMMP card holders may sample cannabis products, all of which will be provided at no charge. Non OMMP out of state MMJ cardholders may attend and audit classes, but may not sample any of the cannabis products, or take any home. We will allow up to 20% or 2 financially challenged patients to attend each class at no charge. No non medical students will be accepted until Oregon laws permit it. Fees are due in full at enrollment. Cancellations greater than 5 days before the class, will be promptly refunded. Cancellations less that 5 days before the event may or may not be refunded, depending on whether the slot can be filled in time from standby students, but if not, we will hold a solemn toast to your contribution to the shared expenses, in your absence.
