What is a Ganjier?

Similar to the Sommelier’s role in the wine industry, the Ganjier is trained in the art, science and appreciation of cannabis craft, consumption, and connoisseurship, possessing a multidisciplinary knowledge and astute professionalism serving to raise the standard of excellence throughout the cannabis industry.

The Ganjier is educated in the history, science, genetics, cultivation, processing, and consumption of cannabis.

Additionally, the Ganjier is trained in the systematic assessment and grading of the quality of cannabis and cannabis products. Most critically, the Ganjier is a trusted and reliable guide for the cannabis consumer.
