About Us

Founded in 2016, CannabizTeam is the world’s largest cannabis-focused executive search and staffing firm providing services for the top cannabis and CBD businesses in the U.S. and Canada. CannabizTeam takes the time to learn the beliefs, values, culture, and goals of each client. By achieving a comprehensive understanding of each client, CannabizTeam can match them with ideal candidates and help them achieve sustainable success. Through an extensive global reach and unparalleled business relationships, CannabizTeam and their temporary and consulting arm, CannabizTemp, place over 1,000 candidates a year.

CannabizTeam is proud to have teamed up with leading businesses in strategic partnerships that offer real value to their clients, including Fisher Phillips, the foremost labor and employment law firm in the cannabis industry.

CannabizTeam also strives to be successful as an ideal representative of the cannabis industry in terms of fighting for social equity and equality. The cannabis executive search and staffing firm believes in supporting restorative justice and pushes for inclusion, which is why they have officially partnered with the Last Prisoner Project (LPP), a nonprofit coalition dedicated to helping those affected by the War on Drugs. CannabizTeam believes it’s important that companies hire those who have been convicted of nonviolent cannabis offenses, as they are victims of unjust laws and pioneers of the cannabis industry.
