How To Make Money In The Cannabis Industry Without Selling Cannabis

For personal reasons, job restrictions, and federal guidelines, there are many people who believe in the cannabis plant and its benefits but they do not consume the products. There are many who actually work within the cannabis industry who have never consumed the plant. This may or may not come as a surprise to you but it’s very true.

In fact, during the voting period to legalize marijuana in Oakland, CA, I met several individuals who were seeking equity in the area but shook their heads with a hard no when asked if they ever tried their own products. In my opinion, if proper testing is being done to ensure that the products being sold are safe, I see nothing wrong with this.

The cannabis market is expected to grow exponentially within the next 5-10 years. With that being so, there are many of people who will have the opportunity to make a name for themselves within the industry.
