Only female marijuana dealer in Billings, Montana



Billings, Montana – The first and only Certified Ganjier in the state is now a woman from Billings.

A Ganjier has received training in the connoisseurship, usage, and craft of cannabis.

For the first Certified Ganjier in Montana, Purple Cow contributed to the cost of their education.

Kari Boiter is the first and only Ganjier in Montana, and she is among a select group of Ganjiers both domestically and internationally.

“I’m one of 235 certified Ganjiers in the entire world right now,” Boiter said.

The Purple Cow Dispensary now has even more options for the ideal blend to meet any type of customer desire.

“Yeah, I need some for sleep, they know exactly what to tell you,” said Dan Schaeffer, a customer at Purple Cow Dispensary.

The bud tenders are extremely knowledgeable about marijuana, according to Schaeffer, who appreciates any information about Ganjier.

“I guess it’s just like any kind of crop,” said Schaeffer. “Producing wine, same thing. You gotta know your grapes.”

People in the industry also feel that way. Boiter’s evaluation of cannabis is comparable to that of experts in the wine industry.

“Wine is really a great comparison because it’s using the exact same categories that a sommelier would use,” Boiter said.

“And those categories are appearance, taste, aroma, and then experience that you have.”

To become a licensed Ganjier, Boiter underwent around 200 hours of schooling, including instruction in California.

She now has understanding of the many marijuana strains and how they may be used in drinks, edibles, and other goods.

She further asserts that while she cannot provide medical advice, she can provide information.

“I could not recommend a product without having tried it myself,” Boiter said.

The management of Purple Cow contributed to the cost of the education and now has access to Boiter’s knowledge in a variety of fields, including cultivation and processing.

“A Ganjier will be able to tell you what kind of environment it was grown in, how it’s going to finish off what kind of flavors you’re going to taste and sense within the whole product,” said Jim Huerta, Purple Cow C.E.O. “But then also be able to direct and educate people.”

Boiter can work with other marijuana businesses even if she is not an employee of Purple Cow.

“Now we’re going to reap the rewards but so will anybody else in the industry,” Huertas said.

“This is really a great opportunity to put Montana on the map and help make sure that this emerging industry has some standards of excellence that we can all really be proud of,” Boiter said.
