Alan Amsterdam is one of the first people to be accepted into the pioneering Global Ganjier Certification Program.

What is a Ganjier?

According to the certification site:

“In the tradition of the wine sommelier, cigar aficionado, or master chocolatier, Ganjier is a first-of-its-kind, rigorous, multi-tiered cannabis sommelier certification created and taught by the most respected names in the field with the intent of producing an entirely new class of cannabis professional—the Ganjier”.

What Skills Does A Ganjier Require?

  1. Accurate assessment of cannabis quality
  2. Cannabis consultation
  3. Accurately communicate standards, values and quality
  4. Inform & build trust with customers: Curation of menus for better sales and enjoyment
  5. Cultivation of different cultivars
  6. Elevate the credibility of cannabis enterprise
  7. Raise the standards of excellence

Alan will be tested on some of these skills, to name but a few!

Ganjier Council

Some of the most formidable leaders in the cannabis industry run the Certification program. In other words, experts come from specialist areas such as cultivation, chemistry, and commerce.

The Ganjier Council was put in place to ensure that the Ganjier Certification Program was accurate and valid.  Above all it follows the best practices in the industry.

Alan’s Skills Make Him An Ideal Ganjier Candidate

Meanwhile, Alan has been studying under some of the most respected names in the industry. Therefore, he has been able to learn and build on his extensive experience of growing Cannabis (Sativas).  Moreover, his influence in the legislative environment, as well as operating several businesses in this field, help make Alan an ideal candidate.

In short, Alan will have to take several online courses. He’ll also attend a live 2-day live training session. This is followed by further study and practice. In addition, the final part of the certification program are in-person written, service, and SAP Exams.

Good Luck Alan!
