Why are we doing this?

We’re bridging the gap, for professionals and the public, with a diverse program of courses and learning opportunities and by nurturing a supportive community around medicinal plant-based alternatives.

Our Goal

The BasePlant wants to elevate the national conversation and research surrounding plant-based medicines and support your journey to becoming a knowledgeable plant-based medicine advocate.

We do this through three streams:

  • Education: a diverse curriculum of expert-taught courses for personal and professional use.
  • Interaction: knowledge sharing through podcasts, videos, articles, interviews, testimonials and more.
  • Connection: a supportive self-care environment of peers and professionals to connect with and learn from.

Professional Courses

In collaboration with experts we aim to deliver in person and online training and certification to help industries serve their customers safely.

A perfect example is our first course – Introduction to Culinary Cannabis. It quenches the void between the demand for cannabis cuisine and the lack of training for chefs and cooks to work with the plant in a repeatable, predictable way.

The half-day curriculum covers safe cooking with cannabis and how to work with its unique flavours and effects to provide guests with an extraordinary culinary experience. It’s ideal for seasoned and budding cannabis cooks alike.

Learning for everybody

Self-directed care doesn’t mean you have to do it alone. The BasePlant brings together experts and users to share knowledge about the health benefits of plant-based medicine.

Through educational videos, success stories and how-tos, we’re curating a Canadian Medicinal Plant-Based Education Platform. For those just starting their journey, it’s a supportive place to begin and grow. For experienced users, it’s a safe place to share, mentor and dive deeper.

Learn from experts and medical professionals. Hear from patients about their journey. And discover and hone your abilities with How To Lessons.

Building a community

At its heart, The BasePlant is a community. It’s not about us. This platform is a reflection of what you need and what you bring.  From personal experience, we know there’s a lot of noise when it comes to plant-based medicine.

Getting started can be confusing and lonely. We want to help each other tune into information you can trust, find people to help you on your healing journey, and meet and connect with others.
