Itinerary

Marijuana TrainingThis is a Professional Training Course to teach you what you need to know about cannabis and your state’s Cannabis Laws so that you can apply to work in a Medical Marijuana Dispensary. You will be working with cardholders in this position and must understand the medication before you start assisting others. The material is presented in a fast paced, 4 hour course with a summary exam at the end to get your certificate of completion. The goal of this class to help you understand the industry and the medication which will help boost your resume with the knowledge you need to speak intelligently when you land that interview for an opening at a dispensary in the near future.

For those with no legal experience to put on a resume, training increases your chances of getting a job in the medical marijuana industry! On average, a Marijuana business owner gets over 200 resumes for every opening they post. With this training on your resume – you WILL stand out from the crowd!

On June 8th, 2016 Ohio Gov. John Kasich signed a medical marijuana legalization bill. This new law prevents patients from smoking marijuana or growing it at home, but it would allow its use in vapor form as well as edibles and oils.

Conditions which a physician can recommend medical marijuana include AIDS, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, chronic traumatic encephalopathy, Crohn’s disease, epilepsy or another seizure disorder, fibromyalgia, glaucoma, hepatitis C, inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, pain that is either chronic and severe or intractable, Parkinson’s disease, positive status for HIV, post-traumatic stress disorder, sickle cell anemia, spinal cord disease or injury, Tourette’s syndrome, traumatic brain injury, and ulcerative colitis.

In August 2018, Ohio issued the final stage of licenses for processors and testing labs. Previously cultivators, dispensaries and testing centers have been approved. Now that all areas have been licensed the patient registry should open soon. However, we still don’t expect dispensaries to open until late 2018, missing the Sept 8th mark that was planned for by a couple months.

Some states call it a Budtender, Dispensary Agent, Compassion Care Technician or Patient Liaison. No matter what the title is, the job description is the same – it is the person that works behind the counter of a medical marijuana dispensary and here at HempStaff, we believe they need to be trained. They are the product specialists whose main responsibility is to be a product specialist. This person must be trained to work with cardholders and help educate patients on how cannabis can alleviate some of their medical symptoms. Dispensary agents must be able to not only work with cardholders on the products that may work best but also how to use these products and what the appropriate dosages should be.

After passing the cannabis training for dispensary jobs in Ohio, HempStaff offers you a resume review to help you get your document looking the best that it can before you start sending it out for posted positions. And of course, when our recruiters are contracted to fill entry level dispensary agents or cultivation site workers, we review our student’s resumes and contact them first!

When Dispensary owners need to hire employees to work in their medical marijuana dispensaries, they know our certified students are exactly what they are looking for in terms of initial knowledge of the job functions! HempStaff will be known as the go to company for cannabis training for dispensary jobs in Ohio. We are the ONLY Dispensary Training Course that employs someone with 5+ years of legal cannabis experience as their head trainer! We know the value of having our students able to ask questions that only someone with this much experience can actually answer.

Please Note: You can NOT put ANY illegal experience on your resume for a job in the medical marijuana industry! Unless you have experience working in a dispensary, this training will be what you can put on your resume to let employers know you have the knowledge and ambition they are looking for when selecting candidates to interview. It shows you have the motivation to obtain professional training in the subject of medical marijuana and truly desire to be the best MMJ Dispensary Employee you can be!

There is no state approved certification for Dispensary Training in ANY state yet, as it is still Federally Illegal, but we believe training is essential in order to allow this industry to succeed and help our patients get the relief they need! When clients come to us with open positions for their dispensaries, or even when you apply on your own, the hiring manager can be assured you have had the proper training. We have heard from many dispensary owners that our Certified Students are amongst the most knowledgeable they have interviewed / hired and they will look for those candidates first in their pile of resumes.

We know that laws are constantly updated in the early months of the MMJ program. That’s why, once you take our professional training class, you are welcome to return to any future training session, based on availability, at no charge! The HempStaff Certification was created so that we can be sure that any candidate we send to our client for an interview is trained and qualified. In addition to any possible job openings through HempStaff, students are encouraged to list the HempStaff Certification and Training as education/professional training on their resume when applying for industry jobs on their own. Many of our students have used our network to search out their own opportunities and obtained jobs on their own, several dispensary owners have attended our classes as well – so we suggest business casual attire. There are many opportunities to explore once you are properly trained! Now is the time to get cannabis training for dispensary jobs in Ohio and get into this industry before it explodes over the next couple years!
