Washington: Marijuana Industry Recruiter Reveals How To Apply For Cannabis Jobs

DavidMurétViridianStaffing[Ganjapreneur]

With the legalization of cannabis in several states in the U.S., a viable commercial market has risen out of an industry which once operated entirely in the shadows. As investors and entrepreneurs pursue profits in the new legal industry, employment opportunities have begun to open up for everyday citizens as well.

In their latest podcast, Ganjapreneur has interviewed David Murét of Viridian Staffing, a Washington-based recruiting agency working to connect employers with job-seekers in the cannabis industry, about the emergence of these cannabis careers and the people who are seeking them out. Viridian has been hired by companies to find and place candidates in job roles ranging from entry-level to executive, in every sector and niche of the marijuana market.

In the podcast, Murét and show host Shango Los discuss what types of jobs cannabis companies are hiring for and what steps an average person can take to find employment with such a company.

"People will be very often surprised to find out that their skill sets are relevant to the cannabis industry," David said. "These companies need the same type of support as any other company does, be it sales, marketing, social media...almost anyone can find a home in this industry if they’re willing to put in the time and the effort."

U.S.: Former GW Pharmaceuticals Advisor Discusses Future of Medical Cannabis

Cannabis business website Ganjapreneur has announced its latest podcast episode, which features prominent medical marijuana researcher Dr. Ethan Russo in a conversation about his research regarding the Endocannabinoid System — a unique system found in all vertebrates, including humans, which promotes homeostasis and a biological balance across bodily functions.

In the interview, Ganjapreneur podcast host Shango Los asks Dr. Russo about Endocannabinoid Deficiency (ECD) and the potential for it to be treated with cannabis. As Russo explains, ECD is just coming into general awareness now as a cause behind several conditions including Migraines, Fibromyalgia, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Phantom Limb Pain, Infantile colic, Glaucoma, PTSD, Bipolar disease and others.

When used as a form of treatment, "A lot of what THC does is paralleled by the effects of... natural chemicals in the body that everyone has," Dr. Russo explained.

Before going public with his research, Dr. Russo worked for years as senior medical advisor for GW Pharmaceuticals; there, he oversaw three separate clinical trials for Sativex, one of the world's first cannabinoid-based medicines to be approved for public use.

Today, he is medical director at Phytecs, a company specializing in the production of cannabis-based treatments related to the endocannabinoid system. Due to legal complications and concerns over the federal legality of his work, Dr. Russo only began to speak publicly about his research earlier this year.

Global: Flat Iron Hash-Making Process 'Rosin Tech' Goes International

"From buds to dabs in 30 seconds"... is it too good to be true? In their most recent podcast episode, Ganjapreneur.com, a website dedicated to cannabis industry news and culture, investigates the origins and rapid growth of a new hashish manufacturing process known as "Rosin Tech."

The interview, which is hosted by Shango Los of the Vashon Island Marijuana Entrepreneurs Alliance (VIMEA), features Jeff Church, a hashish and medical cannabis expert and the founder of ThincPure, a Washington State medical cannabis extracts manufacturer.

In the interview, Church (also known as "Reverend Cannabis") describes how Rosin Tech came onto the scene in the medical cannabis world and how it has spread rapidly, largely due to videos and photos on Instagram, originating with a user named "Soilgrown." He also describes how it has quickly disrupted the cannabis extracts market, due to the fact that it is so inexpensive and accessible for medical cannabis patients.

Describing how the process works, he said "Basically what it is, is you take a piece of silicon-coated parchment paper, baking paper, and fold it in half and you put a piece of flower in there. Soilgrown’s original method was to take a flat iron which is just your basic hair straightener, $20 or less [...] but you basically just, you’ve got your bud in between a parchment and you squeeze it with this hot iron."

The result, Church said, can be on par with hash produced by highly specialized and expensive hydrocarbon extraction technology.
