How I Retain Staff in the High-turnover Cannabis Industry

2020 is a year we’ll never forget. How could we? If 2020 was a story, then the COVID-19 pandemic would be the main antagonist. It upended everything, reorienting the economy, business operations, and our own livelihoods.


This job will pay you $50K a year to test dry herb vapes

If you’re looking for a new job and are a fan of vaporizers, has an opportunity for you.

The company is looking to hire someone to put dry herb vapes to the test. The selected candidate will be paid $50K a year, receive three weeks of vacation, and will probably accumulate way more vaporizers than any human needs.

Whoever gets hired will regularly get new vaporizers to test out. The vapes are free and the tester is expected to provide input on the functionality of the device, as well as general product information, such as battery life, ease of use, how to clean and maintain the device, and comparisons to similar products on the market.


48North Cannabis lays off 20% of staff, cuts outdoor facility

48North Cannabis Corp. will lay off about 20 per cent of its staff as it ends outdoor cultivation at an Ontario facility.

The cannabis company's CEO Charles Vennat says the layoff impacts about 26 staff and comes as 48North immediately ceases operations at its Good Farm outdoor cultivation facility in Brant County, west of Hamilton.

The company described the closure as an important step toward profitability and when coupled with decreasing its cash use, said it will result in annualized savings of at least $5 million.

The Good Farm cut leaves 48North dependent on strategic partnerships with licensed producers and on DelShen, an indoor facility it keeps in Kirkland Lake, Ont.


Want To Work In Cannabis? Six Tips On How To Do That

Last month’s jobs report was sunnier than usual: 192,000 jobs were added in February, reflecting 12 straight months of private-sector job gains.

And that could mean opportunities for some portion of the 9 million Americans who lost jobs in the pandemic.

Experts have advice for them: Look for job growth in ecommerce, health care digital marketing, nursing and more.


Setting Equal Standards For Women In The Cannabis Industry

Many women around the world were raised to believe “this is a man’s world.” And, to a certain extent, that was the case back then. But as society progresses, we have come to understand that men and women should — and need to be — equal, both in and outside the workplace.

However, challenges are far from behind us: women still endure challenging work-related situations, get little recognition and support from peers, and are often faced with high hurdles when it comes to professional growth. And much of this goes unspoken.

Thus, the question remains: How can we ensure that things change?

Cannabis Industry Could Be The Next Great Middle-Class Job Creator

Unlike other industries that were badly hit by the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting recession, hiring in the legal cannabis industry has been booming. Experts attribute the industry’s designation as "essential" at the start of the outbreak as a key reason for the surge. However, challenges still mount. For instance, the industry may be growing exponentially, it is fragmented thanks to the federal illegality. Currently, 36 states (and D.C.) have legal medical marijuana markets while 15 (plus D.C.) permit adult-use.
