I just decided I wish to take marijuana cultivation as a career and would like advice on what to do first
Welcome to the growers network. We are glad you are here. We all share your love for the miracle plant. These are some resources that this site has in it. It has 4 courses on cannabis industry information.
What would be some thoughts of what you want to do in the industry?
I can pretty much tell you that you need to go to college and get a formal education in plant sciences, and then specific courses in hemp cultivation…Growing pot is not a stoners/hobbiest game anymore, these large facilities want and get top notch educated people these days, they pay well but only to those who have the education and background. Pretty much like anything you will most likely have to work your way up through the ranks. Try and get a job in a large cultivation center and learn there as you go to school at the same time.
In Canada you can start a legal 2000 sq ft facility, not too big at all.
