Hiring in the CBD Industry

May 27, 2020



At Spectra360, we know how important it is to have the right candidates on your team, especially when hiring in the CBD industry. As the industry rapidly grows, more and more opportunities are becoming present in the job market. 

“In a survey of 2,000 U.S. consumers, 1,500 reported using a CBD product within the last three months. With a CAGR of 39.5% for CBD oil alone, the U.S. CBD market is sprinting towards becoming a multibillion-dollar industry.” (Forbes)

 However, with every upside, there’s a downside. The industry is also very risky. It’s still considered illegal under federal law, the success rates are low, and the market is oversaturated. Celeste Miranda, Founder of the CBD Expo Tour, told WFYI that “the time of free-wheeling growth is over. You know there’s going to be a bigger supply. Oversaturation? Absolutely. So many factors come in at that point then. Things like marketing, branding, do you have all your checkpoints in place to be [sic] that survives.” (Forbes)

 Making sure that you are prepared with the right team to help keep your production and distribution operations running smoothly is very important. This industry is rapidly evolving and with the help of Spectra360 we’ll make sure you’re equipped to handle whatever comes your way.

So, what are the keys to success?

1. employees

Hiring the right employee can make all the difference in production and workplace morale. Oftentimes the CBD industry can attract people that have the wrong motives. Instead, you need someone who is genuinely interested in helping your business grow. 

Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh once estimated that the cost of bad hires cost his company “well over $100 million.” (Forbes).

This is why it is so important during the hiring process to take your time, do your research, and ask the right questions. You can’t afford unmotivated workers! Otherwise, you could end up hiring the wrong candidate, costing you more in the long run that it would have had you found a candidate that fits in with your workplace and company culture. 

Hiring in this industry can be extremely challenging, and very costly if you make the wrong choice when searching for the right candidate. To assist you with your hiring process, we’ve put together some of our best practices all in one place.
