Staffing any job can be a time-consuming project. Advertising, recruiting, sorting through hundreds of applications to select a few candidates for interviews, and selecting the best fit for your company; it takes away time and attention you’d be better off spending on other parts of your business. And in the marijuana industry, the process is made even more difficult by the limited number of experienced candidates and the complex regulations and required background checks.
By working with our firm, you’ll not only save time and effort, you can also rest assured that you will be presented with highly qualified, skilled and motivated candidates. We are dedicated to providing you with the exceptional candidates you need for your company to thrive and grow.
We recruit staff at all levels, from entry-level to executive and management level to board members, and we help a wide range of businesses in the industry: marijuana dispensaries and stores, cultivation centers, ancillary businesses that serve the cannabis industry, and nonprofit organizations focused on drug policy. We source full-time employees as well as freelancers – it’s up to you.
We take care to ensure that the candidates we recommend are the perfect match for your company by really taking time to understand your company culture and values.
THC Staffing Group is not a big, soulless machine but a highly specialized boutique recruitment firm. You can expect personal guidance from people who are not only dedicated to your needs, but are as passionate about the marijuana industry and its future as you are.

Why Does Diversity Matter?
Diversity is far more than just a moral issue. It’s a business necessity for any company in the 21st century — especially for marijuana businesses, which face opportunities and challenges unlike any other industry.
It’s no secret that the medical and legal marijuana industries are highly scrutinized. This scrutiny extends to the diversity of the staff of prospective businesses. Several of the most recent states to create a competitive marijuana dispensary application process have requested information about the diversity of the applicants.
We will help you find candidates that are aware of and sensitive to the diversity among your customers and stakeholders. With our help, you can build your brand as one of the rare marijuana businesses to connect across communities.
And most importantly, you will find that by bringing together a team with different backgrounds, your workforce will be well equipped to creatively and effectively handle the unpredictable nature of the marijuana business.
I had become very frustrated with the job application process and was unhappy with a mundane entry-level position found through a general staffing agency after graduating college. I reached out to Shaleen Title and she connected me with the position I’ve held for the last year working at the nation’s premiere marijuana law firm in Denver, CO. Without Shaleen’s efforts I would not be waking up every morning excited to go to work. This job has changed my life and Shaleen was responsible for making that happen! I can’t thank you enough!
Danielle Schumacher is a talented, capable and hard-working individual with deep roots in the cannabis community. She has been an activist, an employee and a manager for numerous groups over the years, and I have had the opportunity to work with her directly. She has a broad understanding of the issues and many links into the community based upon, among other things, her work with Oaksterdam University and the offices of physicians, attorneys and cannabis experts including myself. She is organized, efficient and a problem solver. It is my honor to recommend her services, and I have no doubt that those who take advantage of her offerings will be pleased with the services and results that they receive.
Thanks to Shaleen’s recruiting efforts, we were able to bring in high-quality, diverse candidates who were a great fit for our firm.
When Shaleen recruited me to volunteer for the non-profit Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, it changed my life. That was about five years ago and now I am a full time staff member. Before then, I had bounced around from job to job, never really finding my passion but only paying the bills. My new career gave my life direction and purpose. For the first time I not only knew what I wanted to do with my life, but Shaleen had showed me how to make it happen. She opened my eyes to an entire professional world in drug policy reform that I had not even known existed before. But more than this, through her exceptional mentorship, she helped me navigate these new waters and guided me to the place I am today. I get to wake up every morning and work at a job in which I absolutely believe and love. I will be forever grateful to Shaleen for my new career and many of the friends whom I’ve met along the way.
Shaleen helped get me started working in drug policy reform by offering me a job at LEAP not long after I was out of college. When I moved to Colorado in 2012, she recruited me to volunteer with the Amendment 64 campaign. Volunteering became a job, and I found myself working to regulate marijuana in Colorado. Through my work I had the chance to do some videos for the A64 campaign, which inspired me to pursue video work as a career. Shaleen even had a hand in the social media launch of my company. She and another activist had a viral video idea commenting on the 2012 Obama campaign commerical and asked if I'd help produce it. Some quick thinking, mixed with Shaleen's will and determination, and we created a video that conveyed a message and spread quickly. It was the first video we posted, and at 61,995 views, it is our most-viewed video to date.
There are still so few women involved in the legalization movement, and even fewer women of color. Shaleen is an absolute inspiration and a necessary role model for other young female activists. She teaches us to never be afraid to speak our mind, and reminds us that this isn't a movement only "by and about" white men. And personally, without her advice, I would have never been able to "come out" to my pretty traditional Chinese family about a cause I am passionate about.
As our contracted office manager for two and a half years, Danielle took our very disorganized office and created a system that worked for us. She has exceptional organizational skills and dedication to her clients, is highly intelligent and works with the big picture along with the minutiae. We knew things would be under control with Danielle around. Now, Danielle is our "go-to person" whenever we need some help with staffing our office or projects. Her wide range of experience enables her to know the many facets of the cannabis industry as well as the activist side of things.
As Denver’s longest continuously operating dispensary, we at Denver Relief hold very high standards for our employees. It’s not always an easy task finding people who understand cannabis, carry themselves in a professional manner and have the ability to adapt in this quickly evolving industry. We reached out to Shaleen and THC Staffing Group in hopes they could make that search a little easier for us. They located someone they believed was a good fit for our culture and needs and we hired Jonathan in less than a week. Not only has Jonathan met those high expectations after his hire, he has exceeded them and is already rising in the ranks. I know we’ll be going back to Shaleen and her team in the future, not only for our Denver business, but for those of our clients around the country.
