DETROIT, Feb. 21, 2018

DETROIT, Feb. 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- HempStaff, a Florida-based recruitment and training agency for the legal marijuana industry, will be hosting Medical Marijuana Dispensary Training courses in Detroit on Saturday, Feb. 24, at the Hilton Garden Inn Detroit Metro Airport. There will be two separate training sessions, the first from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. ET and the second from 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. ET. The course costs $249 with prior online registration, or $300 cash at the door, if seats are available.

"Michigan's cannabis industry is on the rise, and it isn't showing signs of slowing as communities continue to recognize and support the plants effectiveness as a medicine," said James Yagielo, co-founder and CEO of HempStaff. "With 64 communities approving ordinances to allow medical marijuana businesses in their towns, and the new law ordering dispensaries to apply for a license from the state to keep operational by mid-2018, regulation-educated employees will be in high demand."

In addition to Michigan's cannabis regulations, the course topics include:

  • How to determine and recommend dosage
  • Cannabis' effect on the endo-cannabinoid system
  • How cannabinoids and terpenes can alleviate or reduce symptoms of illness
  • Communicating with new customers and medical patients to understand their individual needs
  • Managing point of sale and inventory systems
  • Top 20 cannabis products on the market

The 4-hour course culminates in a certification exam that students must score 75% or higher to get a HempStaff Dispensary Agent Certification. In addition to education, HempStaff offers recruitment assistance to students, which includes a cannabis resume review and tips on how to make connections with employers looking to fill entry-level positions at dispensaries and cultivation sites.

In addition to Michigan, future HempStaff training classes are scheduled for Maryland, Arkansas, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Ohio, Illinois, Massachusetts and Florida.
