Do you want to make US$1,500 ($1,918) and smoke free weed for a month?
A post on the website’s blog describes the ganja-filled gig in depth. The study will last for 30 days, and the company says that specialists will be provided with all the necessary cannabis and equipment to complete the trial, which ambiguously describes its aim as testing “theories” about the effects of the drug.
“We have a few different theories behind the pros and cons of casual cannabis use, and we want to provide more information to our community,” reads the blog. “We are aware that cannabis can affect people in different ways, and different dosages will have different effects, but we are keen to test some of our theories!”
Candidates must meet certain criteria to qualify. Applicant must be 21 years of age or older, be “willing to follow testing procedure” and possess “strong” English writing and communication skills. The blog also notes that applicants should have “no prior health conditions which might make it unsafe for them to participate” and must be “comfortable and able to attend video calls to recap their experiences, as well as fill out a verbal questionnaire.”
The company also specifies that although participation is not limited to U.S. residents, applicants must reside in a region where adult-use cannabis is legal.
“Applicants for all countries are welcome, but the area you live in must have recreational cannabis laws,” reads the blog.
That may still pose a problem for Canadians wishing to participate. Although cannabis is federally legal in Canada, it is illegal to take or ship cannabis across the Canadian border, essentially ruling out (legal) Canadian participation by default.
Online applications are open until October 1st, and require wannabe weed testers to provide basic information such as name, email, date of birth, and why they believe they would be an “excellent” Cannabis Effects Specialist.
