Benefits of Cannabis Certification

Cannabis and hemp certification is a great career move for anyone that is looking for employment in a marijuana, cannabis or hemp trade and wants to stand out in the competitive job market.

Certification is also essential for entrepreneurs. The cannabis and hemp industries will soon be the fastest growing industries in the 21st century. Education is key to succeeding in any business.

If you already are have a current professional license or certification, adding a medicinal cannabis or hemp specialty will help you develop a new niche market, gain more publicity, and get more clients.

Here are some more Benefits of Cannabis Certification:

The number one reason to get certified is trust! If you are working in the cannabis industry, you want people to trust that you have the best education possible. There are so many undereducated people and outright scammers, that it is difficult to find someone to trust. Certification shows people that you have achieved a certain level of education, and that you can be trusted to present a specialized or expert opinion on the subject matter.

Stand out from the crowd
In the ever-competitive business world, it is often hard to distinguish yourself from other professionals or job candidates. As a Certified Cannabis Specialist™, Certified Cannabis Professional™ or Certified Cannabis Caregiver™, your new designation will highlight your special education and give people a reason to choose you over others.

Easy promotional opportunities in a new niche market
Whether your current occupation is in the legal, financial, construction, real estate, marketing or some other field, you will find that a cannabis certification opens up a new niche market that will help you promote yourself, gain new clients or obtain a better job.

Earn more money!
Developing a cannabis niche market is a simple way for a small business, ganjapreneur or job candidate to make more money. Your certification proves you are serious about your cannabis career. In addition, the increased referrals, networking opportunities, and publicity all result in more cash in your pocket!

Gain publicity
Newspapers and other media are always looking for stories with a new angle. Your designation as Certified Cannabis Specialist™, Certified Cannabis Professional™ or Certified Cannabis Caregiver™ is a newsworthy achievement. Certification gives you the opportunity to work with the media to get publicity about your designation and get your name out in the public.

Increase referrals and contacts
The power of developing a niche is clear when you start to get referrals from clients, friends, family and acquaintances. Everybody knows somebody who needs cannabis-related products or services, and once the word of your special expertise gets around, you will have all the new business you need!

Increase networking opportunities
All good entrepreneurs know that who you know is just as important as what you know. Your new designation will allow you to network with a whole new circle of contacts working with cannabis, including attorneys, health professionals, financial professionals and others.

Become more effective
When you make cannabis certification part of your personal training program, you acquire the skills you need to stay competitive.

Decrease marketing costs
If you already work as a professional in another industry, cannabis specialization allows you to focus on smaller market segments, so you can target your marketing efforts and make more money. Maximize your marketing dollar!
