The world is changing, bringing new industries to the forefront. People are looking for careers they can cherish. In particular, one industry is turning heads as it grows by leaps and bounds.

We’re talking about the cannabis industry. As cannabis becomes legal across the country, profits are booming, and people are looking for a way in. With that in mind, here are three reasons why the cannabis industry would make a great place to build a career.

Finding a Career Path

The way people look at and for jobs is changing. The last few years have taught people the value of finding a career that makes them feel proud and respected. To put it simply: people are tired of putting all of their energy into a company that doesn’t appreciate them. They want a job that can be turned into a career that will take care of them in the long run.

It shouldn’t be a surprise to see people heading to industries with so much potential — such as the cannabis industry. According to a 2021 Leafly Jobs report, the cannabis industry offered 77,000 new jobs in 2021.

The Culture

One of the many ways the cannabis industry stands out among the rest is its culture. This isn’t your typical business — things are run differently. In other words, the cannabis industry is breaking the mold for business in America, and people love it.

Part of the reason for this fresh take on business likely stems from the fact that the industry was quite illegal for the longest time. That has resulted in a more relaxed take on matters while still keeping a weathered eye on laws and regulations. Cannabis companies are more likely to allow hybrid or remote workforces (when possible), flexible hours, and even fun perks like reduced dress codes and allowing pets on site.


The cannabis industry has grown in surprising and unpredictable ways over the past few years. It is entirely likely that it will continue to do so. This means that there will never be a dull moment in the industry. People who flourish in adaptive environments would do well here, as there is always something changing within the industry.
