Here are a few reasons why it is the perfect time to look into the cannabis industry:

Everywhere ranging from a farm to a dispensary, jobs in the cannabis industry offer both steady hours and great starting pay. Additionally, with more states becoming legal for medicinal and recreational purposes each year, the cannabis industry is here to stay.

According to, The global legal marijuana market size was valued at USD 9.1 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 26.7% from 2021 to 2028. Not only is the cannabis industry here to stay, but it is also growing at a rapid rate, and you can grow with it.

Starting wages in cannabis can range anywhere from $12 – $15 an hour depending on the specific job. There is, of course, opportunity for tremendous advancement opportunity. Furthermore, according to CNBC, cannabis jobs pay 11% more than the average US median salary, and demand is up 76%.

Throughout the course of the pandemic, we witnessed businesses all throughout the country close their doors for months at a time, leaving unemployment levels at an all-time high throughout the country. According to congressional research service, In April 2020, the unemployment rate reached 14.8%—the highest rate observed since data collection began in 1948. One of the few industries that remained open, however, was cannabis. More specifically, dispensaries were even considered essential in many states.

Although some jobs may require previous cannabis experience, there are just as many that are entry level and allow you to get your foot in the door for people of all different levels of experience and backgrounds.

If you are passionate about cannabis, you will find it easier to wake up every morning and support an industry you truly care about.

Whether you want to be front and center working as a budtender, or in the back, rolling or trimming cannabis, there are always different jobs you can rotate to keep you occupied if you are just starting out.
