One fascinating side effect of marijuana legalization nationwide in Canada and in several states in the U.S. is how it has established entirely new career paths. Like full-time weed critic. If you live in a place where cannabis is legal for medical and recreational use, a company called American Marijuana may have a job for you.
But don't get super-excited about bong rips for dollars yet.
See, American Marijuana wants it clear that this is an actual job with clearly outlined duties. For one thing, you need to be comfortable on camera. For another, you should probably have a way with words. From ABC:
The company posted information seeking a new cannabis product reviewer who will be responsible for sharing "honest and reliable insights" in the form of a written blog and on-camera videos.
"This job is 100% for real and it’s an important job that includes more than just getting paid to smoke weed," American Marijuana explained in a release about the job listing. "If you think that’s the entire scope of the job, then this might not be for you."
It's a serious business, in other words.
If you think you possess the kind of ganja knowledge that can help educate consumers, read on.
The actual American Marijuana job application states that applicants must be "physically fit and healthy in general" in order to churn out regular reviews.
A potentially challenging element: The position includes making thorough videos—from unboxing to consumption—illustrating the way the products perform and contrasting them as well. Videos are also intended to assist in identifying the best selections from whatever you test.
The benefits of the job, however, are considerable. American Marijuana writes that its reviewer will "be shipped a box containing different brands and varieties of cannabis products every month." We're talking all manner of strains—everything from Purple Nurple to Chernobyl to Sour Diesel. Not to mention a variety of vapes, edibles, and CBD-infused products.
And yes, this includes describing how it feels. You are, after all, educating consumers in what really works.
All for up to $3,000 a month. A small yearly income or excellent added income if needed.
Here's how to apply according to American Marijuana—as long as you are 18 years of age or older, that is:
- Headshot OR a preferably link to a 60-second intro video talking about your passion for the position we’re posting.
- Attached links to existing social media accounts
- …and at least 6 street names, slang terms, or nicknames of marijuana (so we know you’re taking this seriously!).
Hey, we gave you three strain names to start above.
