Growing Job?
    #535309 - 03/09/11 09:44 PM (5 years, 8 months ago)

I'm currently in school for computer shit, and frankly I don't enjoy it. My passion is growing, I'd love to get a job at a seed bank or open a dispensary. Would I need to look into getting a degree in botany?

Gotta do what your passionate about!

Hit up local schools for Horticulture/botany classes and learn everything you can about growing everything. Not to bust your bubble but even if you were top of you class, breaking into the industry is harder than taking a nuns anal virginity. Good luck though :bongload:

It's not hard at all, Don't listen to them.

I really wanted to grow and all you need is some money and ambition.

Up and go to a grow state, get residency, get legal, grow.

It's really that simple. I am the proof.

Check out my channel, Caligrowgirl on youtube.

I really doubt that getting a degree is necessary or if it would even help. I am bet it's all about becoming friends with the right person and you can get a job in a dispensary. Or like I said before, work for yourself growing.

I am sure it varies from state to state. I went to DMV with all my new info when I moved and it was fairly easy.

If I remember correctly you haven't actually made any profit yet...

Getting set up legally isn't hard.  Growing good weed really isn't that hard if you have the right equipment and know what you're doing.  But selling it and making a living in an economy that is saturated as it is...well that's going to be the hard part.

From what I have seen and heard, the market is not nearly as saturated as everyone makes it out to be.

I have been around to some dispensaries and from what I have heard top quality buds always sell. So if my buds come out top shelf I won't have a problem. Only time will tell.

Is a 16 year old guy having sex w/a 16 year old girl a pedophile?
If not, then how is a 30 year old considered a pedophile for doing the same thing?
I think y'all need to look up the definition for pedophile.

Ha ha ha.......

The info here is funny.

Ok,  simple as this it is not gonna be easy for ya. The state is flooded and it does help to know somebody. When you go to clubs to sell your smoke your gonna be standing in line with a few others that want to sell theirs also. Depends on where in the state you want to sell it also. The further south you go the more you get.

Once you get in good with a few clubs and they get to know you and can rely on you to supply them when they need bud not just when you need money. Once they really get to know you they will take any cuttings and seeds you can supply esp if people get good results with them and want more. (Meaning you stuff gets in demand)


The clubs will buy buds from everybody but not everybody gets the price they wanted :wink:

You have to learn to set yourself apart from the rest weather that means growing the current med strains well. Coming up with your own strains and hopefully they get popular, or both. :happyweed:

Thank you Magash, I was hoping you would shoot a post on this thread.

I didn't know that dispensaries buy from everyone. Is there a catch to it? Does it gotta be a specific quality?

Yeah it has to be good quality depending on what strain your claiming it is. Roll in with brick Mexican weed and they will buy that also depending on what your selling it to them for. That way they can have a cheap item on the menu for people low on cash.

Wanna make some cash sell it to the clubs in Palm Springs. I had two pounds and went in to see if they wanted it and they did. The guy was trying to talk price to me and made the mistake of saying "I can only pay 3300 per half pound at most". I had to reach into my pocket and pinch one of my balls to keep from getting a shit eating grin on my face and told him "well ok I'll do two for that". (of course I only had the two on me and would have taken less then half that)

Lesson learned let the clubs start talking numbers first.


Stand behind what you sell. When I go to a club I have the smoke, a microscope, and a dvd and a portable dvd player showing how I make the seeds, grow the buds or take the clones. Any kind of objection they may have I can shoot down. Puts them in a - it's to good to walk away from - position. When they don't meet your price walk away or there gonna know your a easy push over every time you come in. I usually give em a line like "let me hit up a few of the other clubs and if I can't get it I'll come back" and walla walla bing bang their paying me. :wink:
