With my experience I could easily become an executive in one of these companies, and never have to travel outside of Denver again
I work as a quality control consultant for a very prominent chain of cannabis dispensaries. This is essentially a dream job, in which I travel from place to place and sample locally sourced blends of cannabis. As much as I enjoy my work, after a few years even the world’s best job can wear you down. I had to travel roughly 40 to 45 weeks a year, which left very little time for a social life or anything else. When it was time to come off the road and settle down, I decided to move to Denver, Colorado. There were a few reasons that I picked Denver, the biggest of which was the local cannabis community. With my resume and extensive history in the cannabis industry I could have my pick of any number of great jobs in Denver. I love the industry, and can’t imagine a life without cannabis, but I am tired of the travel, so Denver seemed like the smartest choice for my career. Seven different major cannabis dispensary chains are based out of Denver or the nearby areas. I don’t mean seven dispensaries, I mean the headquarters for seven major corporations, are all based near Denver. This means that just on the administrative and logistical side, the cannabis industry provided thousands of jobs to the Denver area. With my experience I could easily become an executive in one of these companies, and never have to travel outside of Denver again. I have a lot to figure out, but I am stoked about my future in Denver, Colorado.
