How to Get a Job in the Marijuana Industry

The marijuana industry has been ignited in the United States as more states have been added to the phenomenon of America being great again financially with a product or item that was considered dangerous to society. Even though, we don’t know what the new President-Elect, Donald Trump is going to do about the cannabis industry, it is safe to say that it isn’t going anywhere, anytime soon since there were several states added to the legalization. On the federal level, though, it still has a long way to go for retracting the statement that it is a dangerous drug.

The Benefits and Reward

With more than 24 states legally able to grow and distribute marijuana, medically and recreationally, it is no wonder that more people are seeking cannabis jobs as a career choice and medical marijuana for improving their health. With these benefits, many are hoping that Donald Trump stays out of this industry for now, at least.  Almost every cannabis business is going to need new hires for their grow rooms and marijuana dispensaries.

Now that marijuana is legal in various states, flood of Americans are being noticed as many are moving to the areas to get jobs as plant trimmers, budtenders, couriers, cannabis growers and even dispensary owners.

Landing a Job

    This is such an interesting and informative post. I had no idea that there were so many career opportunities in the Marijuana industry. I would honestly love going into something like that. I wish the whole world would get on board. Do you think an increase in this industrial field would be met with resistance by many citizens?

      Hi Jeanri and thanks for the comment.
      I think at first there will be some skepticism, but as medical marijuana becomes more mainstream, the acceptance will be come along with it. The recreation market is where there will be more resistance, but just as with alcohol and tobacco, time will dictate it`s place.

    I honestly had no idea that there were this many types of jobs available in the industry, but I suppose it only makes sense because as a regulated industry it is really no different from alcohol or cigarettes. That being said, is there any worry about the stigma attached to working for a marijuana focused company when looking for your next job? Is this something people should consider before taking a job in the industry?

      Hi Craig and thanks for the comment.
      As the legalization process for medical marijuana continues across many states, the ones who have passed now need to supply this market. More legal and licensed grow production facilities will need certified and qualified people to work positions in tech, engineering, IT, Hydroponics, etc.

      In my opinion, having worked in this industry opens yourself up to experience, which you can either use to advance yourself in this industry or for new opportunities, and vice versa for people seeking employment.

    Hey, Brad now you are talking my language! I have been trying to get into the cannabis industry for about four months now. But here in Vegas, it is to new and not many jobs. Byt the way I use these two companies to lookup Cannabis jobs first is Vangst.com and Indeed.com they are the only ones that list this type of work.

      There will be more careers available in this industry as legalization by more states, and here in Canada countrywide July 2018! The employment market here is increasing, but certification is required, kinda like a Food Safe certification, but only for marijuana!!

    I lived in Oregon briefly this year and thought about working in a dispensary. If I move back, I will certainly use this website as a resource – it’s really an exciting industry and I love seeing all the innovation which comes with having it regulated and legal.

    What type of salaries could a marijuana worker expect to make? I suppose positions like Software Engineer and Accountant would post at the market rates, but how about the farmers? Agriculture is not usually high paying.
