Woman with fibromyalgia lands job testing different forms of cannabis
Kayla Gerber, who works for a medicinal cannabis clinic in Ontario, Canada, has fibromyalgia – a chronic condition that causes pain all over the body.
The 27-year-old, who is also a dance teacher, has been educating patients about the benefits of marijuana since it was legalised in Canada last year.
Wanting to help others suffering from chronic pain, Kayla signed up for a job opening for a weed expert.
She will now be testing different strains of the plant and rating them for physical qualities, smell, and taste.
Kayla also has to evaluate a strain’s effects on the body and mood, such as changes in appetite, energy, creativity and sociability.
She’ll also need to test out ‘consumption accessories’ such as vaporizers, pipes and bongs and storage accessories to retain freshness.
She is paid $50 (£38) an hour for the gig and has to work a minimum of 20 hours a month.
Unsurprisingly, she said it is her dream job.
