The economy is in the toilet and hard working people are starting to feel the pinch. Doesn’t matter what level of education you have, chances are, you’re having trouble finding jobs if you don’t have one or just constantly struggling to pay the bills. But with cannabis approval growing rapidly in the US and with more states legalizing the plant, it seems like benefits for medical users aren’t the only positive effect of a legal cannabis market. There are many jobs that the industry could create if allowed. Here are five jobs that will be available with the new legal marijuana industry. There will always be a vaporizer sales man, that’s for sure! Also drug testing companies will be going out of business, so that’s positive!

Much like a bartender, a bud tender is cannabis expert who gives the medicine to the patients. Different then a pharmacist in the sense that the people working to sell cannabis to patients or recreational users are genuinely concerned about the people buying pot. You don’t need a degree to be a bud tender but it certainly helps to be a regular user and to genuinely know the strains your recommending.

Someone needs to grow the plants to sell in the stores, right? Growing cannabis is a full time job. The plants need constant attention to achieve the level of perfection that’s necessary for store sold cannabis. There are constant problems that present themselves to those that choose to grow. From pests to thieves, having a garden is hard work but eventually, it does pay off. Both in monetary gain and a feeling of accomplishment that the garden will make people happy long after it’s been cut down. If this job interests you and cannabis is legal or is becoming legal medically or recreationally in your state. I would recommend you purchase a copy of my good friend Ryan Riley’s book on growing high quality cannabis. Growing high quality bud is much harder than one would think but he breaks it down into a simple strategy to get you growing without breaking the bank in no time. The price is not cheap but I assure you the knowledge is worth every penny. The tips included will save you easily the amount of money you spent on the e-book. There is even a money back gaurentee if you are not satisfied.

Edible Chef
Cooking with bud is not as easy as you think, especially if you’re getting creative. Some people can whip up the most delicious food containing weed and some people… Just can’t. Making edibles is more like a science than anything else and the patients who can’t smoke do love enjoying treats. Soon enough, I’m sure little food delivery trucks will pop up, much like Meals-On-Wheels, containing amazing medicated dinners for it’s customers.

Bud Trimmer
The buds aren’t going to look so perfectly manicured by themselves! After the harvest has been cut, the buds must be trimmed carefully to be ready for sale. Trimmers don’t make a lot of money but a lot of the time, they get paid more in free weed that they’ve trimmed themselves. Again, companies with a feeling of self-accomplishment, this job would be great for someone trying to break in to the business and work their way to the top.

Concentrate Maker
This profession would only be for someone who knows what they’re doing. Making concentrates can be dangerous if not done under the right conditions and it’s important that these people especially take care with their craft. Creating concentrates that are a high enough quality to be sold is tough. From BHO to ice wax to RSO, this product must be extremely high in quality. Those that tend to gravitate towards making concentrates usually have a background in engineering or chemistry, as the knowledge needed to do this is extreme.

Glass Seller

This has always been a legal profession but I think as we see cannabis use become more and more common, we will see an influx in the amount of bongs being sold! Not only that but vaporizer sellers and other marijuana paraphernalia companies will be booming once weed is legalized.
