WE DO WHAT WE LOVE, AND WE LOVE WHAT WE DO
SSC is a labor of love. We are a global community of advocates who have made it our mission to affect change. We are passionate, persistent, and deeply invested in what we do. We firmly believe that cannabis is the key to a more meaningful way of life.
WE BELIEVE IT IS POSSIBLE
It’s no secret that the legalization of cannabis is going to be an uphill battle. Nevertheless, we hold an unshakable belief in the possibility. No matter where you are located, or what the rules are in your region, you will find support for your efforts from our global team. There is nothing we can't accomplish through education, focus, and community.
As advocates, activists, and ambassadors ourselves, we are acutely aware that every act of giving counts. That's why we award full tuition scholarships to those in need, use our platform to correct widespread disinformation, and we donate our 101 library proceeds to charity.
WE DON’T DO HALFWAY
We give everything 120% and then some. In fact, we’re downright obsessed with exceeding your expectations. If we are awake, we are out there going above and beyond for you, ourselves and each other.
We feel very fortunate to have one of the best cannabis training programs in the world. At the end of the day, our goal is to have every SSC member feel blown-away by their experience. That's why we are continually updating and creating fresh content that will take you deeper into yourself to enrich your daily advocacy.
WE SELL THE OCCASIONAL THING
SSC is a for-profit company owned by our Founder, Brandie Leach. We have a very dedicated team of collaborators and we work our tails off to facilitate some of the best cannabis content available. In order to make the student experience something truly magical, our bi-annual enrollment offers incredibly limited seating. Your tuition makes it possible to stay on-top of updates throughout the year, but we count on selling smaller items, like our seasonal wellness packages, merchandise, and immersive learning experiences, to keep our efforts moving forward.
IT’S ALSO HOW 99% OF WHAT YOU GET STAYS FREE
We are absolutely relentless in our commitment to produce some of the best free content imaginable for the cannabis community. In addition to our social content, free courses, blogs, podcasts, and videos, we provide free learning opportunities for cancer warriors, hospice families, and those struggling with epilepsy. We also do a ton of free public speaking, and give away thousands in full-tuition scholarships to people of color and students in need. Your support helps us make it all possible.
As much as we love cannabis, and we want to sing it's praises from every mountaintop, we are citizen scientists first. As responsible advocates, we only base our information on quality research and accurate data. This means that we do not make lofty claims or promises and we always disclose anecdotal evidence. Cannabis research is way behind. There are a lot of dead leads and ‘what if’s’. Not to mention the fact that new findings can come out overnight that might change everything we currently know. In cannabis, there are no absolutes. BUT you can count on our members to be upfront about it with our clients, our audiences, and with one another.
Of course, trust goes beyond scientific advocacy. We also have a responsibility to you. If our training isn't going to be the right fit, we’ll let you know. When mistakes happen, we take full responsibility, correct the issue, and make things right.
WE GOT YOUR BACK
Elevated Advocates get exclusive deals and product discounts throughout the year. If we are sharing it, it's because we honestly, genuinely believe that it's going to help you be better at what you do. Any affiliated endorsements are openly and happily disclosed.
bECAUSE WE LOVE YOU!
Our members are literally the reason why we exist. You inspire us every day, and together we are creating meaningful changes all over the world. If we do right by you, you do right by them, and we are downright obsessive about your future success. You can rest assured that our mentors are working non-stop to make sure you feel as supported, appreciated, and valued, as you truly are.
We are very well aware that people will not always agree with our mission, vision, or values. Our community is intended only for those individuals who are dedicated to positivity, community enrichment, and self-work. Any individual who demonstrates mean-spirited, dishonest, ageist, racist, sexist or otherwise rude behavior is not welcome. Period.
WE’RE NOT FOR EVERYONE
Our community is overflowing with compassion, and our sense of optimism is unstoppable. We are relentless in the pursuit of knowledge. We lead brazenly, love deeply, and we will not stop until we have achieved our mission. When we make mistakes, we celebrate. This is an opportunity to learn and grow! If you’re not ready to pour your whole heart and soul into your work, this is not the community for you.
WE PROBABLY SMOKE CANNABIS AS WE DO IT ALL…
You know......for science!
