As the industry continues its upward trajectory in both revenue and job growth, the report utilizes LinkUp’s uniquely powerful jobs dataset to provide insights on the locations, companies, and occupations that are booming.
Among other key findings, the report observes the most cannabis job listings in the states of Colorado and California, two states that paved the way for legalization, in addition to a notable uptick in hiring in Illinois, Florida and on the East Coast. At the occupation level, the report finds cannabis companies shifting hiring from marketing and development to more production and sales oriented roles.
