Cannabis Job Fair in Denver: Eight Companies That Are Hiring

It's a great time to be an unemployed weed lover in Colorado: One of the nation's largest cannabis career fairs is coming to Denver on Thursday, July 28.

Over fifty companies ranging from dispensaries to labs are hiring for more than 1,000 positions, from entry level to executive. From 2 to 8 p.m. on July 28, representatives from these companies will be recruiting new hires at Mile High Station, 2027 Old West Colfax Avenue. Among those companies:

8. Baker
Baker is a Denver-based app that connects dispensaries with their clients. It allows customers to pre-order their favorite strains and order online; dispensaries are then able to track their most popular strains, as well as sales and revenue. Founded in 2014, Baker services more than 100 dispensaries in Colorado, Oregon, Washington, California and Toronto. 



7. Dixie

Dixie, founded in 2010, is committed to ensuring accurate dosing in cannabis-based products through research, education and advocacy. The company produces THC-infused products, including elixirs, chocolates, topicals, mints, vapes and more. Each batch is triple-lab-tested to ensure consistency and accuracy. 

6. Good Chemistry
Good Chemistry, a dispensary chain located in metro Denver, categorizes its strains by desired effect: amplify, relax, relieve and sleep. The website allows you to search for each of the strains grown in-house by type, effect and class; you can also check locations near you for availability of your favorite strain. 


5. Grow for Vets
Grow for Vets believes cannabis can sometimes help service men and women suffering from PTSD and other war-related mental and physical injuries more than prescriptions. The group is dedicated to providing veterans free access to marijuana; it has seven chapters across the country and provides a place for veterans to receive support.
