While it ain't quite legal in NZ yet, the Marijuana industry has taken off in the US, to the extent that you can now make a career out of it.

American Marijuana, a cannabis review site, is on the hunt for someone to "smoke and review CBD and THC products for $56,000 (US$36,000) a year."

It sounds too good to be true for some of our green fingered whanau, but it's all legit.

The company is asking for applicants to video themselves trying out a series of weed related products, blogging about their experiences.

You'll be tasked with trying numerous products, including weed, vapes, edibles and CBD oils.

"The applicant will have to write about their honest reviews and opinions of the product in the form of a blog," says the company's job description.

"Moreover, they must also be comfortable in front of the camera since the job includes unboxing videos and explainer videos of how each cannabis product performs and differs from other, more notable products in the category.

"If you think you got the guts to smoke weed every day (plays Snoop Dogg song) and get paid doing it, you might just be the guy we need. But DO NOT expect us to hire you just because you can smoke because we're looking for a guy who also has extensive knowledge of marijuana to educate our readers.

"Lastly, the applicant needs to be physically fit and healthy in general to carry out cannabis product reviews regularly."

The only catch is you have to be over 18 and live in the US or Canada.
