“We know that the biggest barrier to entering a successful career in cannabis is education, and the biggest barrier to getting that education is cost,” said Max Simon, CEO and co-founder of Green Flower. “Green Flower has long been looking for the right partner to provide simple, affordable and accessible funding options to prospective students in all of our higher education programs across the country. We are delighted to now be working with Climb Credit to offer just that as We provide career-changing cannabis education to anyone looking to embark on this journey.”
With Climb, students at any of Green Flower’s 18 (and soon to be more) university partners offering online cannabis education certificates can now fund up to their entire tuition, eliminating the cost initial that prevented so many people from registering.

The application takes less than five minutes to complete and the majority of funding decisions are received almost immediately, with no impact on the applicant’s credit rating until the loan is funded. This allows students to complete multiple applications and find the best rate.*
