In addition, the CTI-affiliated Cannabis Hemp Academy is offering a two-for-one holiday special: Buy one full-price certification program and get another enrollment free. Details about that offer can be found here.

As for the low-THC public-service announcement, it features Chippi's incredibly rapid narration of information like this: "The use of cannabis for Low THC may cause immediate relief, including: a general feeling of well-being, chronic smiling or laughing, feelings of euphoria, increased creativity or clarity, a greater appreciation for music and art, the desire to dance, increased feelings of inspiration, compassion or unity, a need for truth and justice or you may wake feeling more well-rested than usual."

A dose of Chippi's good-humored message can be found in the video below.
