What’s going on folks! Today Splint & Jay answers a user submitted question about making money with marijuana. A Stoner’s Journey is a live discussion about all things cannabis with a new episode every Thursday and Sunday.
The cannabis industry is growing every year. In fact, it’s the fastest growing industry in the United States. With so many new business opportunities, there are many different ways you the individual can go about making money with marijuana.
In today’s episode, Splint & Jay talk both about making money with marijuana from the perspective of the physical sector and the digital sector.
Making Money With Marijuana In Detail
The first thing we have to understand is that the cannabis industry is like any other industry. The mere fact that you are working with cannabis, doesn’t mean that the professional appeal of the industry faded. Rather, those who know how to navigate the balance of being a stoner and professional [a Professional Stoner] are more likely to succeed with landing a cannabis related job.
For the physical sector, tracking down the right job can be hard. The first thing you would need to do is identify where you’d like to work. You can easily translate your existing job skills with a cannabis twist.
Electricians, Lawyers, Plumbers and the likes all have translatable skills. If you’re interested in actually growing cannabis, the trick is to make yourself appealing to a prospective farm or dispensary. People who have a background in horticulture and studied up on cannabis, you should apply with those credentials. If you can actually grow a strain, do so as part of your interview. Show people your knowledge of cannabis.
But where do you find these people?
At networking events, cannabis cups, hemp fests and the likes. You actually have to go out and meet people. Alternatively, you can also search online. There are a number of online sites that publish job postings. Search them out, update your CV to be cannabis relevant and do something outside of the box to grab the attention of the employer. Remember, you’re competing with other intuitive stoners.
The other approach is digital. All of these cannabis businesses require a digital presence. This means that they need content. They need marketers, designers, writers, video-graphers and the likes. If you’re good at taking pictures or designing logos, there is plenty of opportunities out there for you.
Finally, if you’re a marketing genius and know how to create serious traffic to a marijuana website. Then you can build up marijuana related websites and flip them. Many marijuana businesses, seeing that they can’t use traditional marketing, are looking to buy cannabis sites.
A million unique visits per month translates into millions of dollars for the domain. Sure, you’d probably spend between $60k-$100k to build it up. However, the reward is definitely worth the investment.
There are many on making money with marijuana. As the sector expands. We will see new opportunities arise. It’s your job to position yourself to get a job in this growing industry. If you are truly serious about breaking into the marijuana industry. You will need to create a relevant skill profile and pitch your services to the cannabis businesses.

What’s good stoners! This is Jay & Splint coming to you with another episode of A Stoner’s Journey. Today we’re talking about Weed Myths, which was a question submitted by the user Wesley Pipes on ForumDeStoners. If you want to drop us a line, simply hit us up on the forum. We check it everyday.
So what about weed myths? How did they come to be?
Today we’ll be talking about three particular weed myths and have decided we’ll do a follow up episode on this one a few episodes further down.
Weed Myths 1 – Cannabis Users are Criminal
The first myth we tackle is the one about how marijuana users tend to be more criminal in their behavior. We go through the reasons how this myth came to be and dispute it with facts.
Weed Myths 2 – Demotivational Syndrome
The next myth we talk about is a common one. Smoke weed and you’ll become lazy. We go through the profile of the average stoner in terms of jobs, annual income and why a change in perspective might be seen as being “demotivated”.
Weed Myths 3 – Gateway Theory
This is probably one of the more known myths out there. We dispute the gateway theory myth with actual facts, statistics and consumption rates, pre and post legalization.
As always, thanks for tuning in and hearing us out. For more about our other projects, check us out on Smoking Joker and be sure to submit your questions on Forum De Stoners. We might be thinking of opening up a twitter so you guys can get in touch with us directly.

What’s going on Stoners!
Splint & Jay is back with a new episode on “A Stoner’s Journey”. We’ve now finally hit 15 episodes and going strong. Thanks to all the people who have been listening and seeing that the last episode we almost hit 600 views, we’re dumbfounded.
Today, Splint & Jay will talk about Cannabis and Depression…
Cannabis and Depression – Is there a Link?
Some people believe that cannabis causes depression. The problem with this is that there is no scientific evidence to back it up. Rather, what we have found is that depressive people tend to use cannabis as a form of self-medication.
Splint talks a bit about his own depression and how cannabis has helped him in the past. Jay provides some tips on how to fight depression using cannabis, and how to shift your perspective to start living a life worth living.
Cannabis and Depression – How does it help?
As Splint explains in the episode, cannabis provides a window for depressive people to make a choice to be happy. Depression is an everyday battle and one must choose “happy.”
Cannabis provides you with a small window to make this decision. To see things from a different perspective. To get outside of your own head for a minute.
This is often more than enough to provide people with the insight to change their outlook within this world. Furthermore, Jay talks about how you can do a simple exercise to change your perception.
Cannabis and Depression is a topic that has been discussed for decades, however today Jay and Splint provides you with additional insight on how to practically address the issue.
