Business Expertise for a New Market
Mac & Fulton Talent Partners was founded in the same era as the early days of the cannabis industry. By conducting recruitment in cannabis since 2015, we’ve seen the market grow, evolve, and mature. During this time, we’ve also seen drastic upheavals and realignments of what exactly it means to be a cannabis professional. Whether it be helping candidates identify transferable skill-sets or educating clients about employee retention, M&F Talent has helped define the hiring criteria of the modern cannabis space.
To do the best possible job for our cannabis clients, we work tirelessly to understand how to do business in such a novel and dynamic market. Whether it be engineering high-end extractors or managing outside sales for multi-state operators (MSOs), we have the knowledge and network needed to fill specialized positions in cannabis. In the end, M&F Talent knows that careful research is the only means of making sound hiring recommendations in such a volatile marketplace.

The cannabis industry represents one of the most exciting, yet challenging markets within which to do business. In the few short years since states like Colorado and Washington voted to legalize adult-use cannabis, the industry has grown exponentially in size, scope, and sophistication. With so much change at hand, many cannabis companies are still learning about what exactly it takes to find, as well as sustain, success.
While the early days of legal cannabis were met with skepticism by much of the business world, today’s numbers are tough to ignore. According to the industry news source MJ Biz Daily, the “combined U.S. medical and recreational cannabis sales could reach $33 billion by the end of 2022, largely driven by the opening of new adult-use markets.” They continue, “retail cannabis sales are projected to be upwards of $52.6 billion by 2026.” With so much growth at hand, the cannabis industry sees the rise and fall of new businesses on a near daily basis.
While M&F Talent recruits for all facets of the cannabis industry, a significant focus of our cannabis staffing operations is on technical hires like Tissue Culture Scientists, Organic Chemists, and Plant Geneticists.

- Sales & Sales Management
