Sample 1: “Cover letter for weed dispensary”

“Dear Hiring Manager,

I’m excited to be applying for the trimmer position at [cultivator’s name]. I’ve had a green thumb for as long as I can remember from my first raised garden bed at the age of five to my current cannabis plant I’m growing in the closet. I’m impressed by your company’s sustainable growing practices. I, too, employ organic methods to grow my medicine.

As a grower’s assistant at [company name], I was responsible for the watering and fertilization of the marijuana plants. As a harvesting associate, I was able to pick the most fruit consistently without sacrificing quality control. I have previous experience working in a greenhouse, indoor, and outdoor environments.

I’m passionate about regenerative growing practices and bring a solid understanding of the best way to trim a cannabis plant due to my cannabis education I learned from Cannabis Training University. I’d love to be a part of your cannabis cultivation team. Thank you for your time and consideration.

“Dear Mr. Mason,

My name is Jonathan Ninja, and I’m very excited to submit my application for the position of weekend budtender at Green-Health dispensary. I’ve been a strong advocate of the cannabis industry for years and was so proud that my hometown was chosen as the first dispensary location in Logan county.

I have been employed as an assistant manager at Read It Again Books for the past two years. In that position, I have picked up valuable skills such as cash handling, customer service, inventory and stocking, and point of sales. I’m confident that I will be able to seamlessly transition these skills to become a valuable team member at Green-Health.

You will notice a six-month gap in employment on my resume. During that time, I was a volunteer with EarthWorks, an environmental charity.

Once again, I’m very interested in this opportunity. I look forward to meeting you for an interview at your convenience.


Jonathan Ninja”

“Dear Sam,

I understand you’re looking for another budtender for MJ dispensary and I think I would be a great fit. In fact, Jim Jackson, who works for you now, recommended me to apply. 

In my attached resume, I list many things I can bring to the table, but here is a more succinct summary of why I’m a good fit for the position. 

In 2020, I completed my budtender certification from Cannabis Training University. The specific courses are detailed in my resume. I then worked for a grower in Colorado for three years. He grew Indica, Sativa, and several hybrids which were then sold to dispensaries all over the state.

I have two years of budtending experience at Grassroots and have grown a loyal customer base of 50+ who always come to me when they shop, for any type of bud, edibles, gummies, and more. Also, I was selected to do the product presentation alongside the management at the Grow Tradefest and Business Expo in Lake Ozark, MO last September. 

My budtending coursework, my hands-on experience with growing, and my continuing education on new trends and products will bring a good level of expertise to your operations. 

I’d love to talk with you about your opening and what I can bring to your business. Give me a call and let’s set up a time.
