A new website is helping cannabis companies find qualified employees.
Within its first week of launching in March, Cannabis Verified had more than 700 job-seeker sign up for accounts. Potential workers in certain states are verified to have the necessary permits to work for a licensed cannabis business.
The site can help connect businesses with budtenders, laborers, trimmers, cooks, retail staff, drivers, salespeople and more.
“My goal now is to get the word out to cannabis companies and, of course, more workers,” says Jace Grantham, the software developer who created the site.
Cannabis Verified is currently free for all users, but may eventually charge a fee for job listings.
