If you want to talk about a job that’s in high demand, then let’s talk about cannabis. Across the United States, the legal green sector is one of the fastest growing industries around. The leafy green plant known as cannabis is cultivating future generational wealth and success for businesses across America. Some people have been a part of the cannabis community and culture their entire lives and others are new to it.
One thing that everyone has in common that’s looking to get into the cannabis business sector is deciding what job to pursue. There are many different lines of work that apply to cannabis businesses. Countless ancillary services fuel the cannabis sector helping it to thrive. Many of these businesses do not handle cannabis in any way, shape, or form.
Instead, they handle vital parts of owning a cannabis business such as labelling, computer software, and packaging. The cannabis industry is growing like a weed with projections estimating it to be worth roughly $146 billion by 2025. It’s expected to see at least a 34% growth annually up until this time. When it comes to jobs in the cannabis sector here are a few that are in high demand.
Brand ambassadors are people who have vast followings and have typically anchored themselves as a knowledge expert in specific niches. They are able to reach hundreds of thousands and even tens of millions of people through their daily organic engagements. Brand ambassadors can help cannabis businesses market their products in an area that is still very gray for this green sector. Cannabis businesses find it very difficult to run television ads and other forms of traditional marketing. This is due to the extensive regulations in this area.
Certified Lab Technicians
Lab techs are one line of work in the cannabis sector that will always remain in high demand. As more stringent regulations surface for compliance with cannabis more testing will be needed. Checking for cannabinoid levels, heavy metals, pesticides, and other contaminants are a must in the legal cannabis industry. As the demand increases for this groovy green leafy dream, the need for certified lab technicians will also grow like a weed.
Bud trimmers are another high-demand job in the cannabis space. Yes, there are giant machines that can tumble pounds of weed every hour. However, anyone who is a connoisseur of cannabis will tell you that this is just okay. No matter what, nothing compares to a perfectly manicured hand trimmed bud. Don’t get all chop happy with a pair of scissors thinking you’re on your way to being a bud trimmer. To be good at it and make a successful living, you will have to be able to trim large quantities of cannabis to perfection. This means understanding the anatomy of a cannabis plant and the differences between the strains you’re trimming.
