What are Cannabis Manufacturing Jobs?

In this space of the cannabis industry, marijuana and CBD products are packaged and prepared for sale. A variety of items are created and prepared for retail stores across the globe, including gummies, CBD tinctures, and vapes. Working in a cannabis manufacturing facility, you’ll have to keep up with rules and regulations, which change often. If you’re trying to enter this sector of cannabis, experience in manufacturing for any industry is a big plus. 

Types of Cannabis Manufacturing Jobs

Cannabis manufacturing teams create and package CBD and cannabis products for sale in dispensaries and online. This includes cannabis edibles like gummies and vapes to cannabis drinks. A packager uniformly and carefully places cannabis plant matter or cannabis-infused products into packaging. This is typically an entry-level, hourly position. It is the manufacturing equivalent to the role of the trimmer. And especially in recreational cannabis states, there is high demand for edibles chefs in various settings.

Here are several manufacturing roles you can expect to find in the cannabis industry

VP of Manufacturing

As the VP of a cannabis manufacturing center, you’ll be responsible for making sure projects follow a strict timeline. You will also quarterback the product development of goods ordered. Additionally, it will be your job to ensure your team follows health and safety regulations every hour of the day. Depending on what company you land in, you may also be assisting with branding and packaging design. 

Facility Manager

Those who have a solid background in project or business management will feel comfortable in the role of a cannabis facility manager. The person in the hot seat for this job pledges to oversee the product and inventory team, making sure they’re on-point and adhere to the timeline. This ensures wholesale clients and dispensary customers get products right on time. If you enjoy handling budgets, operations, and scheduling, pursuing a facility manager position in the cannabis industry could be ideal. 

Packagers

There are no surprises here; a packager is responsible for packaging cannabis or cannabis-infused products neatly into containers, pre-rolled joints, bags, and more. Typically, this is an hourly position, and–like the trimming role–is a solid route into the cannabis industry. Learn about other roles within manufacturing and work your way up from the packager position when the time is right. 

Edibles Chef

Are you a culinary artist? Well, if you enjoy baking (and getting baked), the position of edibles chef could be your dream job. This role requires a master of the kitchen to create tasty food items with marijuana extracts. You’ll need to learn how to infuse cannabis into a variety of items, including candy, baked treats, tea, and soda. Attention to detail is paramount, as each type of food or beverage product will require a precise dose.
