You then need to research to determine if there is a niche for cannabis products/ services in your area and if there is, you need to know whether to venture into medical or recreational marijuana as well as whether you want to supply a product or provide a service.

Starting a marijuana business can be beneficial because the market is not very saturated which leaves a lot of room for potential success and you can very well dominate the market in your area. Remember that in order to open a marijuana business, you must register your business and obtain the required licenses to operate.

Join a cannabis-related trade union or association

Another option is to get involved in cannabis unions. UFCW is the largest cannabis workers union in America and has over 10,000 cannabis members across the nation. This union has played a vital role in pushing state legalization forward with the help of Labour peace agreements. These unions work to help create better paying and higher-quality jobs within the cannabis industry and UFCW is currently known as the largest private-sector union in the US. Joining these unions is a great way to get your feet into the cannabis industry and can help you network within the industry and connect with other enthusiasts within your niche. As a member of the UFCW, you are also eligible for a few benefits which include:

  • Discounts on computers and certain tech products.
  • Special grants that enable you to play off student debt.

More states are starting to adopt recreational use of marijuana which has seen job growth in the industry jump by 32% with an expected 500,000 jobs projected by 2024. This growth and potential have attracted many people looking to join the industry however it can be a challenge to know where to start when first stepping into this industry.
