The cannabis industry’s regulations are not finalized in many states and will continue to evolve. It is imperative to follow your state’s current regulations.

Qualifying for Medical Marijuana Jobs

To be considered for marijuana jobs, all prospective employees will need to provide information for a background check and have a valid State ID. Additionally, to qualify in most states, you must have NO felony convictions on your record (or depending on your state, it could affect which type of facility you are authorized to work in). You do not need to be a medical marijuana cardholder to apply for marijuana jobs.

Budtender, Dispensary Agent, Dispensary Tech

Dispensary Jobs and Budtender Jobs are the most sought after job in the cannabis industry for entry level. Budtenders are the ones whom patients interact with on a daily basis.

Dispensary Agents are responsible for greeting patients, advising them about strains and use, methods of delivery, and dosage. Budtenders must know how each strain works to alleviate the different symptoms for which the cannabis was recommended. Dispensary Agents must be keenly aware of the difference of Indica, Sativa and hybrids. These employees maintain records of the effectiveness of the strain for the patient and future reference.

Delivery Driver

Some states allow companies to deliver products to patients who are homebound. Each state has its one- or two-person delivery services. A clean driving record and someone with a pleasant demeanor to interact with clients are necessities in this role.


This is one of the most skilled, highest paying, and dangerous jobs in the industry. An extractor takes the cannabis and converts it to hash and/or concentrates using different methods (e.g. CO2 or Butane). An extractor must be extremely knowledgeable in this process to avoid the possibility of explosions, especially when dealing with large quantities at once. Many extractors have specialized training to master these skills.

Marketing / Sales

Marketing and sales go hand in hand, but one is in house and one is external. Once again, states have their own sets of rules regarding recreational vs medical marketing and advertising. Both are key roles when it comes to branding and propelling products.

All U.S. States have requirements to work in the Cannabis Industry. Some call them licenses, some badges, some registration, etc. Background checks are required as well.

***Please check with your local State in order to determine eligibility.

Finance and Accounting

Just like all businesses, employees are needed to keep track of the company’s records and finances.

Cannabis Chef

A Cannabis Chef should know the basics of culinary arts and preferably has experience in the culinary industry. Infusing edibles must be done in a commercial kitchen. The Cannabis Chef must be adept at baking, making tinctures, oils, cannabis butter, balms, extracts, and chocolates.

Cultivation Supervisor (Assistant Grower)

The Cultivation Supervisor oversees the Grow Crew and Trimmers. They are there to fill in for the Master Grower when they are unavailable.

Dispensary Manager

A dispensary manager is the representative of the dispensary. The manager interacts with staff, law enforcement, vendors, and landlords. Their main responsibility is to coordinate and facilitate transactions of the dispensary. The manager is responsible for the hiring/firing and employee training. Some managers are involved in deciding which products are stocked and assist with determining pricing.

Laboratory Workers

Testing is one of the more important and overlooked areas in the industry. As testing labs continue to evolve and grow, the oversight state governments vow to make marijuana as safe as possible for patients. Along with extraction, this is great for people who really like science!

Master Grower

The Master Grower is in charge of overseeing the grow facility. They are responsible for all the protocols and maintenance of the operation, which includes the supervision of staff. The ideal master grower has experience in a legal grow with an agriculture degree. Many home growers are often qualified to be a master grower, but the size of canopy can be difficult to match when comparing a home facility to a commercial facility.

Trimmer / Packager

Trimmers and packagers are the most common entry-level positions within the industry. Trimmers are responsible for grooming the product by removing all unnecessary materials to prepare it for curing. Packagers take the finished products and put them in the containers the product will be sold in. Attention to detail is important in this role, as these are the finished products that customers will receive.


Security is essential at all cannabis facilities. Security personnel check in clients to the facilities, may be part of a delivery service, and are an overall comfort and necessity to the business. Many security personnel come from previous roles such as (retired) law enforcement or the services.
