Cannabis Jobs

For fresh graduates, unemployed and career shifters, finding a job can be a challenge. As of this writing, even as the U.S. unemployment rate drops at its 48-year low, tens of thousands of Americans are still having a hard time getting their much-needed jobs. What’s more, many employees are at risk of being retrenched because of company downsizing or because technological advancements make their positions irrelevant.

Faced with these employment problems, applicants and aspiring career shifters should find ways to increase their chances of getting hired. And one industry that needs more workforce in the coming months is cannabis.

Weed Industry — The Next Business Growth Area

Market analysts are bullish and optimistic about the prospects of marijuana. One person who believes in the growth potential of weed is Danny Moses. He is a legendary investor who became famous after the film “The Big Short” that portrayed his investment activities during the Great Recession.  Moses sees a big boom in the industry because of the overwhelming support it gets from politicians, corporations, and the medical community.

Investors also pour in billions of dollars to the marijuana industry; which analysts expect to challenge or even outperform Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Carol Pepper, founder and CEO of the wealth advising firm Pepper International, attributed the surge in demand for weed stocks to the plant’s “staggering” health benefits. Tons of studies have already proven the efficacy of medical pot in treating chronic pain, anxiety, depression, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, and a host of other health issues.

Because of the plant’s health benefits, it has gained support from politicians. Thirty-three states have already legalized medical marijuana while more state and federal politicians are pushing to decriminalize the medicinal use of the plant at the national level.

Moreover, the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill decriminalizing hemp-derived products such as cannabidiol also contributed to the surge in demand for cannabis products.

In-Demand Cannabis Professions

Thanks to these developments, market analysts expect the CBD industry to skyrocket from a $9 billion market in 2017 to $22 billion in 2022. To sustain the growth of the industry, cannabis staffing will play an essential role, and businesses will need to hire cannabis-related jobs such as:

Budtenders

These people will attend to questions and concerns of customers at dispensaries. They are the “pharmacists” in the field who provide the correct information and provide recommendations about the best strains to use for a certain condition. To succeed as budtenders, applicants should have excellent listening, sales, and customer service skills. They must also have passion and enthusiasm in informing, educating and promoting cannabis products like CBD oil and hemp oil.

Master Extractors

Experienced biochemists and bioengineers with doctorate degrees can shift careers into becoming a high-paid master extractor. This position involves supervising the production of cannabis oils and concentrates from harvested marijuana plants. They should also accurately extract precise amounts of CBD and THC (the cannabis compounds with healing powers). Likewise, they should manage their laboratories and ensure that they abide by safety standards and government regulations.

Growers

To produce CBD oil and other weed products, they must come from healthy marijuana plants. Hence, the industry needs specialists who tend to and manage the growth of marijuana and hemp plantations. Their tasks include planting, ensuring adequate crop nutrition, cloning, pest management, and harvesting. This job needs people with a background in agriculture, botany, or horticulture with plenty of first-hand experience in cultivating marijuana.

Edibles Chefs

The boom in cannabis extends to the food industry as CBD oil, THC oil, and other weed components are added to different edibles. People with a culinary arts and food technology background can pursue this career. Companies producing edible cannabis products need specialist chefs and pastry artists who can develop, create, and oversee the production of various marijuana-infused food items like candies, chocolates, pastries, soda, coffee, and tea.

With the boom in cannabis, the industry opens opportunities to people who are having a hard time seeking work.

The Wonderful World of Weed Edibles

Cartoons to Watch with CBD Edibles

Smoking anything can be very harmful to your body and many people prefer not to smoke. Although some people believe that smoking marijuana is better for your overall health than smoking cigarettes, the smoke can still have harmful effects. Many people want and sometimes NEED an alternative to this. They want to feel the effects of marijuana, without actually smoking it. Weed edibles are the best way to do so. In this article. we’re going to be talking about what are weed edibles and how they affect your body and the modern cannabis market of today.

What Are Weed Edibles?

Weed edibles are different kinds of foods and drinks that have been infused with marijuana. This is achieved by creating marijuana oil and adding it to a desired food or drink. Some may argue that a drink infused with marijuana is not a weed edible, as you drink it, not eat it, but they may refer to it as a weed drink. The most common types of edibles include baked goods and candies, but the possibilities are endless when it comes to weed edibles. If marijuana and weed edibles are legal in your state or whichever country you live in, you can purchase premade weed edibles at a marijuana dispensary. You can also make your own if you have access to some cannabis.

How Do Weed Edibles Effect The Body?

There are two main types of weed edibles that you can purchase; THC weed edibles or CBD weed edibles which both have different effects. THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol is a cannabinoid and the main psychoactive component in marijuana. CBD or Cannabidiol is one of the major active ingredients in cannabis that comes from the hemp plant which is apart of the marijuana family. If you choose a weed edible with THC, then you will feel a high or a sense of euphoria and some sedation, whereas if you choose CBD, then you won’t experience a high, but you may feel more relaxed or relief from any chronic pain you may be suffering from.

Weed edibles can be a great option if you don’t want to smoke marijuana, but you do need to be careful of how much you eat as they are a lot more potent than your average joint. When eating weed edibles, it is absorbed differently than if you were to smoke it. In short, when cannabis is consumed rather than smoked, it gets metabolized by the liver and changed from delta-9 THC to 11-hydroxy-THC. This creates more of a psychedelic effect which is completely different compared to your average high.

Another thing is that it is a lot easier to dose yourself correctly when you smoke because you can control how much weed you want in your joint, blunt, or bong. With weed edibles, if you eat too much, you may experience extreme paranoia especially if you are inexperienced with marijuana plus it takes longer to feel the effects from an edible than if you were to smoke, so it can be very easy to consume too much. If you are new to marijuana and experimenting, then it is advisable if you decide to eat a weed edible, you only eat a small amount and see how you feel after 30 minutes- 1 hour.

To conclude, weed edibles can be the perfect alternative if you want to feel the effects of marijuana without smoking. There are tons of options in regards to the type of edibles you can get and the effects they have on your body. Whether you choose a CBD weed edible or a THC weed edible, make sure to do your research beforehand and decide which type and how much is right for you. Talk to friends and family that have experience which weed edibles and marijuana or even a budtender at your local dispensary as they may be able to guide you in the right direction. Just have fun and be safe while experimenting, because marijuana has great effects and can be a lot of fun plus help with a lot of issues.

The State of Cannabis in Washington State: Things To Know in 2021

Jordan Webber

Published

on

The Pacific Northwest is well known for its beautifully lush landscapes, crisp apples, fresh air, and progressive lifestyle/health views. Being the only state named after a United States president(George Washington), Washington is a place many happily and willingly call home or their sanctuary.  

In terms of other well-knowns, Washington state was one of the first to legalize cannabis for recreational use nearly a decade ago (2012 to be exact). As long as you are 21 years old or older and reside in the state, you can privately partake in the consumption of cannabis without any legal ramifications. This has been an appeal to many across the country, with some actually moving to the state for this reason.

In 2021, and with the dawn of a new administration in the White House, marijuana looks to have a very bright few years ahead. We’ve already seen an emergence of pot stocks and hometown dispensaries budding up all around the United States and the rest of North America, and that only looks to continue into the near future.

If you’re in the mood to finally take the leap into using cannabis, now could be a great time to learn more about this wonderful plant and its many healing and rejuvenating properties. 

What is it used for mainly in 2021?

Cannabis was once thought only to be good for “getting high.” There has been a plethora of scientific research giving us a better understanding of this miracle plant. It has been used to treat Cancer, Epilepsy, Seizures, Glaucoma, PTSD, Multiple Sclerosis, Inflammation, and even Alzheimer’s disease. In 2021 after a rough 2020, many have been using it as a healthier way to indulge at home, protecting themselves from the ongoing pandemic. Instead of frequent alcohol consumption, there has been a larger shift towards the consumption of cannabis as it has been stated to be less harmful to vital organs like the heart and liver. Alcohol also creates a lot of inflammation within the body, whereas cannabis reportedly fights inflammation. 

Best places to buy it in 2021?

The best places to purchase your cannabis are from state-licensed retailers in Washington. Purchasing weed through private means(aka black-market) is still illegal and should be avoided at all costs. Make sure to do your due diligence when seeking reputable dispensaries as there are “pop-up shops” that claim being licensed but are not, and purchasing from them could result in a hefty fine or even jail time. 

Per WeedMaps, Medical marijuana patients may purchase and possess up to:

  • 3 ounces of marijuana, or 85 grams;
  • 48 ounces, or 1.36 kilograms of marijuana-infused products in solid form;
  • 1.69 gallons, or 6.4 liters of marijuana-infused products in liquid form, or; 
  • 21 grams of marijuana concentrate.

Washington state cannabis Legislation in 2021

As far as growing and cultivation of marijuana for personal use, this is still illegal. Washington cannabis laws are more liberal than other states, but there are still many restrictions, such as not being able to consume it in “public view”. The most notable push in the cannabis space in Washinton state is a bill for home cultivation.

Conclusion

Washington is a great place to visit and, for many, is one of the best places to call home due to its stance on cannabis consumption. With 2021 being a year of progression, it looks like the state of cannabis in Washington will only continue to shine.
