There are several core differences.
The Ganjier program has been modeled after the top wine sommelier schools.
There are three steps to become a Certified Ganjier:
Step 1 – Complete the Online Training
Step 2 – Attend the 2-day, In-person, expert led Live Training
Step 3 – Pass the In-Person Written, Service, and SAP™ Exams
The Ganjier program has been specifically tailored to equip the student with the knowledge and skills to be a “cannabis sommelier”, a Ganjier.
As an example, while we have a “cultivation” course in this program, it is not designed to teach the student how to grow cannabis. The cultivation course teaches the student about each of the decisions that the grower makes that affect the end quality of the flower. We discuss the qualitative differences between sungrown vs lamp grown, chemical vs organic / living soil, drying only vs drying and curing, etc.
Each of the courses in the Certified level of the Ganjier curriculum have been tailored to train “a master of cannabis service”, someone who is a trusted and reliable guide for the cannabis consumer.
