What happens when a brand-new product appears in the marketplace, gains popularity and widespread acceptance based on state laws, and already has eager clients waiting in the wings? What happens is that job opportunities appear by the thousands. Proof is what has been taking place during the past few years in the cannabis industry, where startup companies are selling not only the main product, marijuana, but hundreds of related services and items like grow lights, vape supplies, specialty blends, and more.
For anyone in search of a fresh work-from-home opportunity, cannabis is the real thing, the true version of the green new deal. The best part of all the new jobs is that most of them can be done from home by one person. Never in recent history has there been a better avenue for sole proprietors to make money in so many different ways. Here are some of the most lucrative ways entrepreneurs are getting in on the ground floor of this diverse, profitable business niche.
As is the case with so many business categories, there are numerous supplies related to the main product. The choice of what to sell and how to sell it is up to you. Maybe you like the idea of being a wholesaler and offering grow lamps to cannabis suppliers. Or, perhaps you'd enjoy selling peripherals like rolling papers and storage boxes to end customers. The possibilities are virtually endless and all offer a great way to carve out your own niche in the e-commerce segment of this new part of the economy.
Some cities already have cannabis supply stores and retail sellers who are in desperate need of in-person delivery drivers. You'll need your own insured form of transportation, a valid driver’s license, and the ability to be bonded. Note that many delivery positions require the driver to have a medical marijuana card. The good news is that it's very easy to get one. For example, in Schenectady, NY, you can get it all done online. One of our NuggMD licensed physicians can take you through the process in a matter of minutes, do the evaluation, and get you ready to go. Service is top-notch, your privacy is guaranteed, and if you have any questions, one of our NuggMD agents will be glad to help. You can help people feel better by delivering valuable medicine, medical marijuana, to them as a for-hire driver in the cannabis industry.
One of the most exciting services in the cannabis industry is the sale of edibles, foods that contain varying amounts of marijuana. Many people actually prefer eating the plant to smoking it, which means if you have any cooking or food preparation skills, you can make and sell your own line of edibles. If cooking isn't your thing, become a retail seller and buy the goods from a wholesale outlet. Right now, edibles are a very hot job opportunity. Plus, the variations are infinite because you can sell candy, snack cakes, chips, soft drinks, fruit pudding, and thousands of other tasty things.
