Careers in Cannabis Farming
Monday, Sep 26, 2016

Work on a farm, medical or recreational, involves a slew of different jobs. Depending on the size of the operation, some tasks may be assigned to a single person. For introductory purposes, though, it is beneficial to explore some of the individual specializations one by one. Here is a look at some of the jobs available on a typical cannabis farm, and the duties — and ideal qualities — associated with each.

As many enthusiastic first-time growers have discovered the hard way, cannabis is notoriously difficult to grow. Considerations like soil, sunlight, temperature, acidity, and moisture all come into play to yield quality flowers. The expertise of a very experienced grower, often one with a degree in botany or horticulture, is needed to main a successful, commercial-scale cannabis facility. Master growers run the show in a garden. One of the primary duties involves devising a strategy for product output — weighing novelty and feasibility in deciding which strains to grow or crossbreed.
