Our members have a lot to contribute to the cannabis community, and Earnest is no different. Working with cannabis companies of all kind, Earnest has a passion for promotion, sales and volunteering. Here’s a bit about him and how he can help you if you own a cannabis company:
My name is Earnest Galvan. I’m 28 years old, and I’ve been a medical marijuana patient for about 10 years. I suffer from anxiety and depression, and also was diagnosed with ADHD as a child, so I was taking a lot of medication I didn’t like. I was suffering from the side effects a lot, like headaches any time I wasn’t on the medication or lose of appetite. It was very frustrating, and as I got older I started looking for alternative medication.
What sparked my interest in the cannabis community?
I started to do research on the benefits and side effects of marijuana, and I was shocked to find so many benefits and very little side effects. I switched from pills to marijuana, and noticed right away that I wasn’t having headaches all the time, and I was able to eat and sleep comfortably. I also started going to events, and realized that there are other people that believe in the same practice as I do, of dosing with marijuana for their issues instead of pill medications that can damage your body. Those two factors are the biggest two reasons I believe in the marijuana industry.
How can I help support the marijuana movement?
I have a passion for using cannabis as a medicine, and once I saw first hand how it changed my life, I started helping other people realize the medicinal side of marijuana. I live in the city of Vista (north county San Diego) and love attending cannabis events like Doobiesesh and Munchiessesh, volunteering for cannabis charities, and getting involved any way I can. I drive to Los Angeles and Orange County daily, so I am always popping into dispensaries for my favorite products, and am happy to promote them so others can learn how they may help with issues they have.
I think the biggest challenge patients (or adults using recreationally) is obtaining the medicine, so I think it is important to explain to others exactly how the process works, how cannabis can help them, and where to go to get the medicine they need.
How can I help Cannapreneur Society business members grow?
For cannabis brands with a booth at an event or presence at another event/promotional campaign, I would be happy to come out in person (or virtually) to talk to potential customers about my experience using cannabis as medicine.
The entire growing process fascinates me, so I would be open to an opportunity as a full time trimmer, or part-time help in a grow op. I would love to talk to a few companies about the possibility of becoming a sales rep for them, as I feel my experience speaks for itself and could sell products/services well. My biggest inspiration in the cannabis community is Tommy Chong, and I hope to spread the word about the healing properties of cannabis! If you are a Cannapreneur Society business member, let’s talk and see how we can work together to grow your brand and sell products/services!
