The booming pot industry has added many jobs to the American economy, but none sound quite as appealing as the latest to make headlines.
Medical cannabis magazine American Marijuana is hiring someone to test and review pot and CBD products for a monthly salary of up to $3,000.
The ideal candidate should have “extensive knowledge of marijuana” and be able to smoke weed every day.
However, those thinking the position amounts to just being a stoner shouldn’t apply, the company warns.
“DO NOT expect us to hire you just because you can smoke because we’re looking for a guy who also has extensive knowledge of marijuana to educate our readers,” they say.
What does the job look like?
Essentially, the reviewer, who must be of legal age and in a US state (or Canada) where weed is allowed, will be sent a box containing different products every month.
These reviews, written in the form of a blog post, should be honest and based on the tester’s profound experience with marijuana, according to the job ad.
Furthermore, the position requires filming the unboxing process and impressions of the products along with “explainer videos of how each cannabis product performs and differs from other, more notable products in the category.”
“This includes an in-depth explanation of their experience with the product during and after their use to educate readers and viewers on the effectiveness of the product,” American Marijuana adds.
To land this dream job, applicants should send over their resumes along with a 60-second motivational video.
Further required information are links to social media accounts and “at least 6 street names, slang terms, or nicknames of marijuana (so we know you’re taking this seriously!).”
According to a Leafly report compiled with Whitney Economics, more than 211,000 Americans work in the legal cannabis industry. As more states move to legalize recreational weed, this (unofficial) figure is only expected to grow.
When it comes to money, the averages compiled by Marijuana Business Magazine range from $285,000 per year for top executive positions to about $29,000 for bud trimmers on the lower end of the spectrum.
