Are you curious about joining the exciting and rapidly growing cannabis industry? If so, you might have come across the term "badging." Don't worry, it's not as complicated as it sounds! Badging is a process that ensures you're qualified and authorized to work in this vibrant field. We're here to shed light on what cannabis badging is all about, making it easy for you to embark on your journey to a cannabis career.

Different Types of Badging: Your Path to Professionalism

There are a few different ways badging can work, depending on where you are and the role you're aiming for. Let's break them down:

  • Badge Attached to the Company: In this scenario, the company handles the necessary licenses for their employees. One of the perks of working with Vangst is that oftentimes the recruiter handles this process for you!
  • Badge Attached to the Individual: Cannabis companies in these markets require individuals who work directly with the plant to acquire their own badge – This means that if/when you leave an organization, the badge goes with you. Note, that oftentimes companies in these markets prioritize candidates who take the initiative to get their badge before joining the team
  • No Badge Required: In these markets, the process to work in cannabis may require as little as an application fee and a background check!

The Process to Acquiring a Cannabis Badge

While different markets have different badging requirements and systems, the general process to acquiring a cannabis badge that is attached to an individual is as follows:

  1. Policy Creation: The employer sets up rules for badges. This covers applying, background checks, and badge issuance.
  2. Tracking System: A smart badge system is introduced. It keeps track of who enters cannabis areas, like a high-tech keycard.
  3. Badge Arrival: Newbies get their badge with their name, photo, and the company logo – your official cannabis ID!
  4. Ongoing Monitoring: Your badge stays with you, helping the employer ensure only authorized people access cannabis facilities. It's all about safety and order.
