Where the Cannabis Jobs Are In 2017


Trump’s presidency and the appointment of Attorney General Jeff Sessions has caused the cannabis industry, particularly entrepreneurs and business owners, to feel a little hazy about the outlook of business this year. Many have decide to put their plans on hold until we all know a little more about the intentions of the new administration with regard to legal cannabis.



The uncertainties that face the industry has rocked the boat despite the progress of legalization last year, especially during the elections. But despite all this, many cannabis businesses have decided to go full steam ahead in search of greener pastures.


During the recent Emerald Cup, many supporters and businessmen in the cannabis industry gave some insight on what can be expected in the employment department this year:


marijuana delivery service Delivery staff: Legal cannabis laws in certain states have made it possible to deliver prescriptions to patients. The demand for delivery services and mail-by-order cannabis products have increased significantly over the past few years, which has spurred the growth of more jobs in couriers and delivery personnel. Additionally the use of mobile enables patients to purchase on-demand cannabis medications and has led to the development of a delivery model customized to the needs of MMJ patients.

Seed harvesters: According to Seed Bank Reviews, international legalization led to an 830% increase in demand for seeds globally. Because federal authorization is required for selling cannabis seeds, harvesting has become one of the industry’s most sought-after jobs.

Cannabis reviewers: Competent cannabis reviewers are crucial to product development of many things in the market, from edibles to beer, and even actual strains. Professional reviewers are responsible for providing insightful feedback on the effects of various strains as well as how they interact with different kinds of infused products. cannabis containers

Security personnel: These roles are necessary for keeping retail shops and dispensaries safe, since most cannabusinesses operate on an all-cash basis. Those who are fit and brave can take advantage of numerous employment options from hourly or part-time roles to full-time security staff.

cannabis edibles Creators of edible goods: Other forms of consuming cannabis are becoming increasingly popular, particularly edibles. If you’re creative enough to make candy, popcorn, baked goods, beverages, and dishes, you can have a lucrative career creating edible goods. There are over 100 startups focused on cannabis edibles today, and it’s likely that this figure will only continue growing.

Cannabis tourism: The cannabis tourism industry is expected to grow like weeds as long as legalization continues to progress. There are many possibilities: from farm tours to developing bud-friendly accommodations where it’s legal, cannabis tourism is another entry point for hospitality and tourism professionals as well as entrepreneurs.

Concentrates experts and processors: Cannabis concentrates are a potent way of delivering the medicinal benefits of the plant to patients. Concentrates come in different varieties such as wax, oil, tinctures, and budder and shatter. Concentrates are usually the only way that the plant can be developed into medications such as tablets, so the demand for this is expected to grow even more. A profession in processing concentrates is a highly specialized role, and one well-suited for those who have significant experience handling laboratory equipment.
