What's a Ganjier?

"In the tradition of the wine sommelier, cigar aficionado, or master chocolatier, Ganjier is a first-of-its-kind, rigorous, multi-tiered cannabis sommelier certification created and taught by the most respected names in the field with the intent of producing an entirely new class of cannabis professional—the Ganjier."

Who's the Bluegrass Ganjier?

Elijah is originally from the bluegrass fields and low knobs of Nelson County, Kentucky.

Enjoying coffee shops and hookah lounges from New York City,

to Tel Aviv, Istanbul, and Dublin, as well as California, Elijah's been rambling, rounding up as much learning as he can about cannabis outside of Kentucky.


From studyin' cannabis at NYU, to the Emerald Cup,

to High Times Detroit, From Budtender to Bucker, 

he's always looking to learn more about Cannabis,

the stories behind it, and the people that grow and love it.

Wandering far from the hills of Kentucky at the moment,

He currently spends his time training in the Redwood Forests of Humboldt Country, Apprenticing as a farmhand using

 No Till Dry Farming Practices, and producing the podcast.

I look to a Kentucky cannabis industry focused not just on quantity, but quality as well. Making the finest bourbon, tobacco, and raising  the  finest horses,

I'd rather see the best cannabis Kentucky could possibly offer.


Quality built on a foundation of sustainably grown, environmentally responsible, small cannabis farms.


A cannabis industry not just passively observing the destruction of the planet,

but actively working to undo the damage.

Not just environmentally, but in ourselves too,

as users and lovers of cannabis.
