Weed Company Will Pay Summer Intern to Test Over 600 Pot Products

If getting paid to spend your summer consuming weed in every which way possible sounds like your dream gig, then look no further.

One lucky candidate has the chance to take on the internship of a lifetime, smoking, eating and reviewing more than 600 marijuana products for US pot delivery company Emjay.

It will take more than just luck to land the role though; as well as being a weed aficionado, the successful applicant must have the ability to write creative content, while also being ‘timely and attentive to detail’ – which might not be so easy when you’re smoking weed all day every day.

To be in with a chance, you also need to be a California resident, as you’ll be required to frequently visit one of the company’s retail locations in Los Angeles or La Mesa.

The position will be paid at a rate of $15 (£10) per hour, up to 16 hours per week – though obviously the copious amounts of free weed is the main perk of the job.

You’ll also be entitled to an employee discount, in case the 600+ products you’ll be reviewing don’t quite fill your boots.

The internship ad reads: “This paid three-month internship is a cannabis aficionado’s dream come true.

“We are seeking a passionate, detail-oriented creative writer to review every single product on our weed delivery platform, Emjay.

“This person will be responsible for writing descriptive, unique, and creative copy and reviews about a wide array of cannabis products. Edibles, vapes, flower, and more – the types of products will run the spectrum.

“The person in this role should understand cannabis culture, what makes consumers tick, and be able to describe Emjay’s ever-evolving menu of product offerings.

“This ideal candidate has experience with cannabis, experience writing, creating digital content, and a desire to use their voice to help inform the masses. E-commerce, journalism, and marketing are all desirable career paths for this role. Creativity and a passion for cannabis are a must.”

To apply, you need to send a one-page writing sample or a video (no longer than 4 mins 20 secs) letting Emjay know why you’d be perfect for the gig.

Urging suitable candidates to apply, Emjay said: “Are you a ganja geek who loves writing almost as much as you love smoking weed? Are you passionate about cannabis and looking to blaze a trail in a budding industry?

“We at Emjay – the Cali-based weed delivery service – are looking for the perfect summer internship candidate totest and write reviews of every single one of our products.

“We sell more than 600 products, from flower to oil to pens to edibles to topicals, and we need YOU to try ALL of them before Labor Day 2021, and let us know what you think of them.

“Yes, this is a 100% REAL weed testing internship, and if you’re a Cali-based content writer who is looking for a fun summer gig where you get to smoke for free, this is for you.”

You can apply here. Don’t kick yourself if you don’t get it though, the position will no doubt be in high demand.
