For more than 15 years, we have mentored and helped match numerous candidates to companies seeking quality talent, a need that has grown stronger as the industry has continued to evolve. Unlike the thousands of general, cross-industry recruitment companies in existence, THC Staffing Group focuses solely on serving the staffing needs of cannabis companies including dispensaries, cultivation centers, ancillary businesses and nonprofit organizations focused on drug policy.
From our deep pool of qualified and highly diverse candidates, we maintain a professional commitment to the growth of an American cannabis industry in which diversity and inclusion are prioritized – not just because it’s better for the bottom line, but also because it’s the right thing to do.
THC Staffing Group is the only cannabis recruitment firm whose founders actively helped shape practical drug policy, and the first recruitment firm in the cannabis industry to focus specifically on diversity and inclusion. Founded by two women with a combined 30 years’ direct experience as activists, consultants and recruiters for legal cannabis, our focus on social justice is what sets us apart.
With individualized services tailored specifically to our clients’ staffing needs, we access our huge network of talented and diverse candidates - women, people of color, LGBTQI, formerly incarcerated individuals, people with disabilities and veterans, across all ages, regardless of citizenship or primary language - to find the ideal fit for your company. For candidates, from full-time to freelance our goal is to place you into a position of growth.
I had become very frustrated with the job application process and was unhappy with a mundane entry-level position found through a general staffing agency after graduating college. I reached out to Shaleen Title and she connected me with the position I’ve held for the last year working at the nation’s premiere marijuana law firm in Denver, CO. Without Shaleen’s efforts I would not be waking up every morning excited to go to work. This job has changed my life and Shaleen was responsible for making that happen! I can’t thank you enough!

Danielle Schumacher is a talented, capable and hard-working individual with deep roots in the cannabis community. She has been an activist, an employee and a manager for numerous groups over the years, and I have had the opportunity to work with her directly. She has a broad understanding of the issues and many links into the community based upon, among other things, her work with Oaksterdam University and the offices of physicians, attorneys and cannabis experts including myself. She is organized, efficient and a problem solver. It is my honor to recommend her services, and I have no doubt that those who take advantage of her offerings will be pleased with the services and results that they receive.

When Shaleen recruited me to volunteer for the non-profit Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, it changed my life. That was about five years ago and now I am a full time staff member. Before then, I had bounced around from job to job, never really finding my passion but only paying the bills. My new career gave my life direction and purpose. For the first time I not only knew what I wanted to do with my life, but Shaleen had showed me how to make it happen. She opened my eyes to an entire professional world in drug policy reform that I had not even known existed before. But more than this, through her exceptional mentorship, she helped me navigate these new waters and guided me to the place I am today. I get to wake up every morning and work at a job in which I absolutely believe and love. I will be forever grateful to Shaleen for my new career and many of the friends whom I’ve met along the way.
Assistant Speakers Bureau Director at Law Enforcement Against Prohibition
Shaleen helped get me started working in drug policy reform by offering me a job at LEAP not long after I was out of college. When I moved to Colorado in 2012, she recruited me to volunteer with the Amendment 64 campaign. Volunteering became a job, and I found myself working to regulate marijuana in Colorado. Through my work I had the chance to do some videos for the A64 campaign, which inspired me to pursue video work as a career. Shaleen even had a hand in the social media launch of my company. She and another activist had a viral video idea commenting on the 2012 Obama campaign commerical and asked if I'd help produce it. Some quick thinking, mixed with Shaleen's will and determination, and we created a video that conveyed a message and spread quickly. It was the first video we posted, and at 61,995 views, it is our most-viewed video to date.

There are still so few women involved in the legalization movement, and even fewer women of color. Shaleen is an absolute inspiration and a necessary role model for other young female activists. She teaches us to never be afraid to speak our mind, and reminds us that this isn't a movement only "by and about" white men. And personally, without her advice, I would have never been able to "come out" to my pretty traditional Chinese family about a cause I am passionate about.

As our contracted office manager for two and a half years, Danielle took our very disorganized office and created a system that worked for us. She has exceptional organizational skills and dedication to her clients, is highly intelligent and works with the big picture along with the minutiae. We knew things would be under control with Danielle around. Now, Danielle is our "go-to person" whenever we need some help with staffing our office or projects. Her wide range of experience enables her to know the many facets of the cannabis industry as well as the activist side of things.

Director, Cannabis Consumers Campaign
As Denver’s longest continuously operating dispensary, we at Denver Relief hold very high standards for our employees. It’s not always an easy task finding people who understand cannabis, carry themselves in a professional manner and have the ability to adapt in this quickly evolving industry. We reached out to Shaleen and THC Staffing Group in hopes they could make that search a little easier for us. They located someone they believed was a good fit for our culture and needs and we hired Jonathan in less than a week. Not only has Jonathan met those high expectations after his hire, he has exceeded them and is already rising in the ranks. I know we’ll be going back to Shaleen and her team in the future, not only for our Denver business, but for those of our clients around the country.
I had always dreamed about being a part of the cannabis industry, but wasn’t sure what opportunities were available. I submitted my resume to THC Staffing Group, and I couldn’t be happier with the results! With Danielle’s guidance I was able to find a position at an amazing organization that had a need for my exact skill set and was a great fit for my personality. Every day I am filled with a sense of purpose and passion for a career and an industry in which I wholeheartedly believe in. I am so grateful for Danielle and Shaleen for changing my life.

Jimi Devine came aboard our award-winning podcast The Hash as a truly plugged-in and qualified sale representative. But his real passion has been writing, and since then I've seen him blossom at Cannabis Now, San Francisco Chronicle, and High Times. It's because of THC Staffing that I've made not only an excellent colleague, but a lifelong friend. Danielle and her team is world-class.
