UK Company Looking For First Professional Spliff Roller
A CBD flower distributor is looking to recruit a talented spliff roller to join the team, having placed an advert for someone who can roll the 'perfect pure spliff in under five minutes'.
The Hemp Earth Dispensary in Brighton sent out a plea for Britain's first professional spliff roller, with a competition for all shortlisted candidates to be held on the 27 February.
The ad clarified that 'only legal herbal products' are used in their 'blunts', which will be made using organic rolling paper and 0.7gms of the company's 'finest CDB Flowers'.
The £10 per hour staff position is not full-time, meaning the in-house spliff-roller will only need to work a couple of hours each week.
The advertisement reads: "We are seeking the crème de la crème of Brighton based spliff rollers to come and join our team at Hemp Earth Dispensary.
"Can you roll the perfect pure spliff in under five minutes? If so then we want you!
"Come to Hemp Earth Dispensary on Wednesday, February 27 at 2pm for a spliff rolling contest.
"You roll, we'll time you. If you're the fastest and make the prettiest spliff, then we'll keep you."
The ad racked up a great deal of interest among prospective pro rollers, with only a handful of the 50 spaces left less than a day after it was posted.
The team at Hemp Earth Dispensary have stressed that 'nothing illegal' will be present on the premises for the contest, adding: "We discourage anyone from attempting to bring any prohibited substances on to our premises."
A spokesman for the Hemp Earth Dispensary said: "Our aim as a company is to promote holistic health, utilising the benefits of legal hemp and cannabinoid derived products.
"Where health is concerned, vaping is a far more health conscious method of taking in herbs through inhalation.
"Some people do choose to smoke which is known to be unhealthy.
"Smoking is a very ancient practice, and we feel that if one must smoke, combusting and inhaling pure, (and legal), healing herbs rather than tobacco is a more advantageous choice.
"We began this event more than anything as a light-hearted way of engaging with our local community.
"We would like to make clear we are not offering a full time 'job role' here, and we are are hoping that those that do come along on the day, do so in a good-natured way, ready to have some fun, and engage with each other.
"The person we do select will be asked to produce some hand made rolls of legal herbal mixture for any of our customers that might request this - this will be for a maximum of eight hours per calendar month.
"More than anything we wish to stress, that nothing illegal is ever present on the premises at any time, and attempting to bring any prohibited substances on to our premises is strictly forbidden."
