 If you are unable to commit the time to attend our 3 months full time course but still wish to gain hands-on experience in the Cannabis industry then the Cheeba Cannabis Academy internship program may be the perfect solution. Our Cannabis internship program runs for 4 weeks at our Plettenberg Bay Campus and is the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself into a working Cannabis Social Club growing onsite in line with the ENCOD model while also having access to the wide array of outdoor activities and experiences that the world renowned Garden Route has to offer.

This opportunity is open to both local and international interns and is a deep, immersive experience.

Internship program information:
Interns are divided into groups of 2 people per group. Each group follows a different roster which ensures that no more than 2 interns are involved with any of the planned daily activities (except for on Fridays).​

In order to ensure that there are not too many interns working in the same space at the same and to ensure a personalised experience we rotate our groups:
• Group 1 will start with Day 1 in the program
• Group 2 will start with Day 2 in the program
• Group 3 will start with Day 3 in the program
• Interns are free on Saturdays & Sundays.
