Getting My Footing In the Cannabis World

Introduce Yourself

My, name is Taniah Milner, an aspiring cannabis cultivator, and advocate. I wanted to put out to the community of any advice or guidance you could give. It could be something as small as growing my first plant to navigating business funding for new cannabis-related fields. Anything and everything is appreciated and welcomed. Thank you for your time.

Thanks so much for posting :) and OMG thats so exciting. Although, I am not a grow-pro; I think if cultivation is something you're super interested in, getting your hands dirty would be amazing experience :) Literally!

I, too would need some guidance in this field. I would really like to get moving and employed, you know?

Hi, Taniah! You're already off to a great start just by sharing your specific interests and letting people know you're ready to hit the ground running. What state are you in? Are you wanting to cultivate independently, or are you looking for jobs with a cultivation operation? I have two pieces of advice.

The first is to connect with local cultivators if you can do so safely. They'll have great tips about regional growing conditions and shops for your resources and supplies.

Second, create regional job and news alerts for cannabis cultivation if you haven't already. These are a great way to see the types of jobs that are being created, the responsibilities, and what the public sentiment is about the industry and plants.

Lastly, if you haven't checked out the cultivation section of the Vangst Salary Guide you should check it out!

All of this is very helpful, I have kept as up-to-date as I can with PA's regulations(the state I reside in). I'm hoping to cultivate a strain of marijuana that fluctuates the market on a THC level. It's a project that I'm passionately researching in these recent years and hope to test this once laws favor me in my state.
