New England Grass Roots Institute provides quality cannabis education in the form of one day classes, 4 and 8 week programs, live demonstrations, educational panels, workshops & patient support groups.

~ Our current schedule of events & classes for FALL 2018 at New England Grass Roots Institute will be posted soon. As will our new classroom location.

As soon as our new location is ready we will open our enrollment and online shopping cart for the SPRING 2018 Semester of the Amazing 8 Week Semester.



The Amazing 8 Week Semester is New England’s longest running cannabis education program, running back to back programs, classes, support groups and more for our students since 2012. The Amazing 8 Week semester meets once a week for eight weeks of classroom lecture, guest speakers and live demonstrations and we cover and extensive array of cannabis topics.

Amazing 8 Week Topics include the following and so much more:

  • Cannabis Political History
  • Medicinal Cannabis Science
  • Indoor Grow/Outdoor Grow
  • Methods of Extraction
  • Methods of Ingestion
  • Cooking with Cannabis
  • Harm Reduction Methods
  • Sensible Cannabis Use
  • Patient/Caregiver Relations
  • Massachusetts Medical Marijuana Law



Our students are diverse and come from all areas of our community and enroll to our classes from all over the east coast.

Our students are all of us that make up our community. The Amazing 8 Week Semester is where you come to have the most fun you ever had in a classroom setting, with a very knowledgeable and diverse group of people that you are about to bring into your life. Most people come to this class looking for one thing and by the end find a new passion that they didn’t know they had. Many students decide they are home and stay with us in our journey of education, community support, holistic health and fun.

They are future business leaders, industry employees and innovators. They are informed patients, caregivers, cultivators and chefs..

We have students in most if not all New England area dispensaries, from well educated and caring front end bud tenders to research and development in the kitchen lab to owner/investors.

Our students are patients, caregivers, advocates and family members looking for more information on cannabis as a medicine to aid in their own families well being.

Our students are young, old, and everywhere in between. They are all of us.

Together we make up a vibrant community of people looking to know more, be more, do more in the world of holistic health and cannabis as a medicine.
