The Leafy Green Legends
The story of Leafy Green Agency’s (LGA) started ten years ago.
Dr. Vanessa Niles established medical practice for patients that could benefit from the medicinal qualities of marijuana. Established 15 years ago, the LGA was as a training and education business with over 15 years of experience in retail and healthcare.
We visited one of their medical marijuana training seminars led by Alex Zakrzewski. LGA’s mission, as stated by Mr. Zakrzewski, is “to provide the best education and training for medical professionals, entrepreneurs, and career seekers interested in this new and profitable space.”
The Marijuana Industry
A variety of marijuana topics were discussed, such as the origins of the use of marijuana, state medical and recreational laws, and the different sectors in the cannabis industry.
Some of these sectors include cultivation/retail, processors, lab testing, ancillaries, and investing and finance, all of which examined more in-depth as the seminar went on.
Alongside these topics were the opportunities that are open in the cannabis industry — hence showing how lucrative and mainstream the cannabis industry has become since its inception.
Brand ambassadors, sales associates, and store managers are only some of the most popular occupations that cannabis companies seek.
Companies such as Green Thumb Industries, Surterra Wellness, and Cura Cannabis Solutions are always looking to fill in some of these jobs.
Regarding the marijuana plant itself, the seminar provided knowledge on the different cannabis strains.
The science behind the cannabis compounds (like cannabinoids) discussed along with the plants’ terpenes and even the different consumption methods.
All in all, visiting the seminar was an enlightening experience for everyone that attended.
Many people are serious about getting into the cannabis industry, either as a:

There were also people who were attending for the learning experience. The cannabis industry is rapidly growing as more states are legalizing marijuana medically, recreationally, or both.
The cannabis industry provides lucrative opportunities — Doctors, entrepreneurs, and connoisseurs alike.
We would like to extend a very special thank you to Leafy Green for allowing Cannaplayground at the event and the hospitality bestowed..
