With so many states legalizing cannabis in the last few years, whether medical or recreational, and with many politicians in the USA wanting to legalize Mother Nature's Cure-All plant, it shouldn't surprise anyone that more and more businesses are popping up. Which in turn means... jobs and careers are abound!
Types Of Jobs In The Cannabis Business
- Marijuana Tester or Quality-Control Inspector
- Master Grower

- Dispensary Receptionist or Cashier
- Courier/Delivery person

- Security guard
- Assistant grower
There are many more, depending on what the dispensary, recreational store or hydro supply store is seeking.
But imagine if you were to apply for a job. What would your resume look like?
Is this an industry you need to get your foot in the door first to move up the business ladder? Up until maybe last year, there were only a few select colleges offering classes pertaining to the cannabis industry. But you have to ask, does being a home grower offer some of these dispensaries and grow warehouses a place to flourish and grow your own skills?
I know where I live, I searched "cannabis jobs" and SO MANY popped up in my state.
After researching (more or less to see where some grow warehouses and businesses are setting up in my state) I discovered there are some BIG grow houses within a two hour drive of where I live. I suppose to be prepared for 2020- or even December 1, 2019 when people can legally buy cannabis at specified locations and dispensaries.
I was VERY tempted to apply for some of the positions. But I didn't... yet. Maybe one day I will.
