Robin Ann Morris, CEO and owner of MaryJane Agency LLC in Sandusky, Ohio, listed the salary ranges for the top three jobs that companies need:
Grow master (master cultivator): $100,000 – $120,000
Extraction specialist (master extractor): $90,000 – $120,000
Dispensary manager: $80,000 – $120,000
Morris believes another reason for the high salaries is the small talent pool, which seems to force companies to compete with one another for top employees.
“I’m hearing that companies are finding it hard to keep good talent,” she said.

House Bill 523 went into effect last September in Ohio, making it ok for qualified patients to access mmj for medical purposes. That news was big for many cannabis activists across the country, because like the Presidential election, Ohio is a big state to win for the movement.
How did that win work for people of color who either want to become a patient or get into business? I thought it would be best to speak to someone who is on the ground in the state who can help us get answers to some of those questions.
Today I have Robin Ann Morris she is founder of MaryJane Agency. The 1st Ohio based employment agency, her job is to supply qualified MMJ personnell for cannabis ancillary business, dispensary, cultivation centers or labs in the state of Ohio.
I wanted to speak to her about how she got into the industry, did she face any backlash when starting her company, how she helps the Ohio cannabis industry flow, how have people of color reacted for the new laws and more.
This recruiter uses the word “love”.
I also reached out to Robin Ann Morris who is the owner of MaryJane Agency, Ohio’s first cannabis employment agency, to get her take on the question. Morris advises her clients to, “Take what you love doing and apply it to the cannabis industry. Everything you are doing now is going to have to be done in the cannabis industry.”
“Take what you love doing and apply it to the cannabis industry?” That’s maybe the best advice of all.
Recent information provided by MaryJane Agency points to some pretty hefty salaries if you have the experience and the knowledge to fulfil one of three different roles¹ within the industry. Several other cannabis centric recruitment agencies such as HempStaff are also reporting 30% pay increases for some job roles. The caveat is a move to eastern US states.
The Industry Moving Forward

Both have been able to provide examples of where they have filled positions similar to the ones listed above with salaries more than those previously mentioned.
