Coursework will encompass retailing, social and economic justice, marketing, supply chain, regulatory compliance, and more. Master's degree candidates will also complete a capstone project, where they will develop a formal plan for the cannabis business and pitch it directly to industry professionals. According to Leafly, there are now 321,000 full-time American cannabis jobs. With the industry’s expansion, it’s not surprising many accredited universities are investing time and money into cannabis education. Some universities only offer a few classes while others have full degrees in cannabis. Colleges and universities across the country are stepping up to meet the demand for workers skilled in the cannabis industry, and they’re connecting their graduates with potential employers. Marijuana companies, meanwhile, can turn to these institutions to fill their ranks. The cannabis industry is expected to support between 425,000 and 520,000 full-time jobs in the United States this year, according to the MJBiz Factbook. That figure could soar as high as 670,000 by 2025.

    Vangst with Kelsea Appelbaum

    Vangst with Kelsea Appelbaum

    Vangst with Head of Community Partnerships, Kelsea Appelbaum today on Blunt Business with Jorge Hermida only on The Cannabis Radio. We welcome back a company that works with a wide array of cannabis companies, including large MSOs, single-state operators, and small mom-and-pop shops. They are able to support large cannabis operators and craft, boutique operators in different ways. We previously spoke with Karson Humiston, Founder & CEO back in 2019. We talk about the Vangst platform and how it has progressed today. As New Cannabis Ventures explained: The platform helps to pair prospective employees with cannabis companies. Candidates create a profile, and Vangst helps them to achieve the necessary credentials depending on the state. Cannabis companies can use Vangst to help find qualified candidates and maintain optimal levels of staffing, whether they need full-time employees, gig workers, or a mix of both. When a company finds a gig worker through Vangst, that person is a W-2 employee who clocks in and out and receives payment through the Vangst platform.

The Business of Cannabis

Great format, professional and informative! As a serial entrepreneur in several unrelated industries, I’ve been searching for business ideas related to the cannabis industry. I’m two podcasts in and Blunt Business has been a great resource for ideas and insight into the cannabis industry.
