As members of the cannabis industry, we owe it to each other to support the workforce that makes this industry possible every day. We started this database to help those who are currently out of work due to layoffs, restructuring, insolvency, etc. If you’re looking to make a permanent or temporary hire please source from this list. If you’re unable to hire right now, then reach out to candidates on this list when you can. Thank you for your continued support and for everything you do to contribute to the success of the cannabis industry.

If you’re an employer and you’re doing layoffs, you can direct your employees to the list as a resource.

If you are hiring, you can leverage the database for active candidates looking for work.


The “Cannabis Talent Help List” is created by Jeff Ord and Alison McMahon of Cannabis At Work, in partnership with the Business of Cannabis. Inspired by the “Talent Help List” launched by
