Why Vangst?

Cannabis companies were having a hard time finding the talent they needed — and talent wasn’t sure where to look.

Vangst Founder and CEO Karson Humiston noticed a glaring need in the cannabis industry to connect the right talent to the right cannabis jobs. In 2016, she built the tech platform to make that happen, and the rest is history.

Proud to Work in Cannabis

At Vangst, we are building an equitable industry that is about more than revenue.

The headlines may focus on the billions of dollars in sales for the fledgling cannabis sector, but the entrepreneurs, activists, and front-line workers who make this industry work know that it’s about much more than cash.

Cannabis is about community, social equity, and social justice.

At Vangst, we want people to know that we are Proud To Work In Cannabis. We want you to be too.
