WHAT IS FLOWERHIRE?

FlowerHire is the first and only cannabis talent agency grown out of the industry, acting as the leading talent gateway into the regulated cannabis industry. Our founders are serially successful startup and recruiting entrepreneurs who left the old world in search of something better. We’ve built and have been early investors and operators of cannabis tech and vertically integrated brands. Through it all, we realized that our background in bridge building and seeding talent into growth markets, was more important for this industry than anything else we had ever done before – and created FlowerHire.
