You don’t need to grow pot to see your business take root in Denver’s cannabis industry.
Just look at Karson Humiston, a 22-year-old who founded cannabis industry staffing firm Gradujuana this summer and plans to expand outside of Colorado this year.
“Our first spot outside of Colorado is L.A., which will hopefully be up by mid-December,” she said. “Oregon will come after that in March. Right now everything’s great in Colorado, so we’re going to set up in some new places.”
The cannabis business staffing firm has placed 17 employees since launching in July, Humiston said, and she is trying to fill 24 more vacancies.
