As Canada’s legalization date approaches in a matter of weeks, a Toronto-based company is looking to hire “cannabis connoisseurs.” The part-time job reportedly pays $50 CAD (over $38 USD) per hour up to 16 hours per month, CBC News reports. Not a bad side hustle for those in the know about cannabis!
AHLOT, the company offering the potentially dream job-fulfilling positions, is located in Toronto’s Queen Street West neighborhood, which has been named as one of the “world’s coolest neighborhoods” by Vogue.
AHLOT markets itself as a “curation company”—and it’s looking for experts in weed to join its ranks on its “inaugural Cannabis Curation Committee.” On the job, cannabis curators will be expected to sample different strains of cannabis.
So what are the qualifications and skills required?
“A self-avowed interest in cannabis together with the ability to distinguish the often nuanced characteristics of different strains is desirable,” according to AHLOT’s job posting. “Evaluation and reporting will include visual, factory and tactile examination of samples, and as such a deep familiarity with the plant is important.”
Chosen candidates will have to provide feedback on strains regularly and report back using an online form, AHLOT’s job posting says. Other potential responsibilities include social media posts, appearances in curation-related video segments, and personal appearances at the company’s events.
Added bonuses: The job can be remote and expenses are covered, according to the posting. The job listing says the position is open for Canadian citizens over the age of 19. AHLOT is currently looking to hire for a handful of contracted positions.
“If you’re a hidden talent with some spare time to document what you already love to do, we’re excited to hear from you,” AHLOT’s website reads regarding the job posting.
An application form on the company’s site asks such questions as: “How long have you and cannabis been acquainted?” and “How many strains have you sampled during that time?” A drop-down list inquires about applicants’ personal use profile, asking them to select if they prefer indicas, sativas, somewhere in-between or simply “I like it all.”
Applications have already opened for the positions. The deadline is Canada’s legalization date, October 17. If you think your destiny is to sample weed for a living, you might want to get on that.
