indoor-grow-roomThe Cannabis Industry Is Hiring – What Job Are You Trying To Get?

The cannabis industry is booming, and everyone knows it. And not just dispensaries and gardens. Ancillary businesses are sprouting up everyday and taking off like something out of a movie. Whether it’s entertainment, a product, a service, media, etc, the cannabis industry is growing at a neck-breaking pace, and people are hiring. If you are trying to get into the cannabis industry, what job are you trying to get? With so many fantastic positions, it’s hard to choose.

It wasn’t that long ago that I remember helping my friend with his garden and we were talking about how great it would be to tend a garden full time for a living. At the time it seemed realistic, but a long way off. Zoom forward just a few years, and a large amount of my friends are employed in some fashion at a garden, whether it’s feeding, trimming, cleaning, or doing general help. These are full time jobs for people that otherwise would be doing nothing during their days.

A job that I think would be exciting would be a sales associate for a cannabis company. I saw a video one time of a lady that travels around California selling seeds for seed companies. She talked about how much funner it is than any other job she has ever had. She gets to travel and talk about cannabis all day. Traveling isn’t for everyone, but for those that don’t mind it, doing sales for a cannabis company is a pretty sweet gig.

Most of my friends either work at, or want to work at, a dispensary. On the movie Half Baked Brian works at a used record store – ‘the perfect job for a stoner.’ I worked at a used record store, and Ninjasmoker worked at a dispensary, and I assure you, the dispensary was much cooler (and didn’t smell like dust!). I met a guy in Colorado when we were there that just rolled joints all day. For people in a state that doesn’t have medical marijuana, could you imagine getting paid to roll joints for 8 hours a day using a machine?

A job that a lot of people don’t think about is being a marijuana activist. There’s not a lot of paying jobs for marijuana activism, but there are some. I can’t think of too many thinks better than getting paid to change the world for the better, can you? Marijuana activism is far from structured, so as a result, cracking into a paid position can be a bit tricky. All I can say is stay active, do your research, and look into an internship. If you’re able to do those things, good things will happen.

So what do you think is a great job in the cannabis industry? There’s so many now, it would be impossible to compile a comprehensive list of all of them. We need you to comment below so that others that are looking can benefit from your tips and comments!

    I’ll advise you this: start up your business plan and find a location with fertile land and that is close to two or more communities containing a few 100 marijuana enthusiasts and medicinal marijuana consumers. Once you have your business plan in place, you won’t have to worry about success because you’ll have gotten both your location and customer base down to the tiniest detail required in a short-term or long-term business plan.

    Me too! Here’s the funny thing about marijuana: it is relatively low-maintenance compared to the other annuals. As far as I know, it varies from marijuana plant to marijuana plant.

    Just a thought: you might just consider growing the plants for their seeds and then sell the seeds to anyone who is interested in growing either commercially to process the marijuana or to consume for medicinal purposes.

    Me too. I had a successful batch last year that I used myself as the guinea pig to gauge the effects and the end result was a sustained couch-lock for at least three hours after drinking the steeped version (I’d expect that smoking the same strain will prolong the couch-lock further and also make you feel more sleepy. The only time ideal for that strain to be consumed would be just before bedtime, ideal for anyone with sleeping issues, such as insomnia.

    Already been happening in Europe, especially in Holland and other countries with little to no enforcement on marijuana laws and/or legalization of the medicinal substance found in the plant. REFERENCE: Royal Queen Seeds and Greenhouse Seeds (both have official websites as well HQs and their own dispensaries in Amsterdam, Holland).

    Just get some seeds from your local dispensary (they sell seeds among the usual items: bong bubbles, bongs, seed catalogs, shirts, rolling papers (also sold at sex shops), hash pipes, and flags.

    Where to start:
    – take into consideration the soil in your backyard (I would highly recommend it as your climate in Florida is quite optimal for OG Kush and other strains that naturally give high yield of bud count per square footage.
    – instead of using conventional fertilizer, opt for sheep or chicken manure
    – to properly germinate marijuana seeds, let them fertilize properly on top of a moist paper towel in a dark cool room
    – if you are in the northern parts of Florida, I would recommend you start your grow indoors beginning in September/October and begin to acclimatize them to the outdoors starting April/May.
    – For maximum yield of every known strain, train all of the branches horizontally including the uppermost branches before the cola of the plant; this ensures that the cola can reach maximum height without interference from the other two branches (a very annoying inconvenience that can be easily avoided so long as you are paying attention to the plant(s) at least once each week during the 5-6 month growth period.

    Those are the lessons I learned from experience. If you have any more questions on growing tips, ask the experts. All I know is just basic gardening skills and, to me, marijuana is just another plant to add to the garden.
