This ‘Sommelier’ certification course on cannabis just launched some highly sought after courses
By Nicolas José Rodriguez
Ganjier, a cannabis training course similar to a wine sommelier program, has officially started registering candidates for its 2022 courses and they are going fast.
The process to become a Certified Ganjier consists of rigorous online training, a comprehensive skills assessment, and hands-on instruction in the heart of California’s Emerald Triangle. All courses will be led by 18 leading experts and artisans in the field and will cover history, genetics, cultivation, processing, consumption, service and more.
“By certifying Ganjiers, we are creating an army of voices who deeply understand all aspects of cannabis quality and can use this expert experience to provide the highest level of service to consumers,” said Max Simon, CEO and co -Founder of Green Flower, an industry leader in cannabis education.
The company’s content and technology platform provide personalized learning and compliance solutions for cannabis companies of all sizes to impact the modern cannabis industry.
“This is why there is so much enthusiasm and demand around the Ganjier program, why we have seen such a level of support from the Ganjier Council and why we have had to double the capacity of this new class,” Simon added.

According to Derek Gilman, Managing Director of Ganjier, “The legal cannabis industry is inundated with mid-grade products parading through the top shelf, and true connoisseur’s cannabis is drowning. All other Epicurean industries, such as coffee, wine, beer, or chocolate, have trained professionals who assess quality and guide consumers through their experience and product choices.
The 2021 Ganjier class sold out in just two weeks. By the end of the year, more than 100 people will be certified Ganjiers.
“A Ganjier is a cannabis culturalist… someone knowledgeable and well versed in all things cannabis,” said Kevin Jodrey, renowned grower, cannabis breeder and founding member of the Ganjier Council.
