What it’s like to work in the Cannabis Industry

We all hear about what’s going on from the outside of the Industry but what is it actually like behind the scenes? The legal cannabis market is becoming the fastest-growing industry in the US. The rapid growth means there are a ton of job opportunities for people from all walks of life. If you’re worried that you don’t have much experience or knowledge about legal cannabis, don’t worry, there’s plenty of opportunity to grow and learn. Passion is key, as the saying goes, "nothing worth having comes easy." Most jobs in the cannabis industry are new, and companies are valuing ambitiousness and motivation over experience. You will face projects that you have never attempted before, rule books made on the fly, and an opportunity to help build the future. The hunger to learn, adapt, and grow within a company is what’s going to drive you to succeed in the cannabis industry.
