The budding pot industry is creating a tech boomlet.

Entrepreneur Edwards Dou of the growing number of businesspeople to get a whiff of the possible profits as more than 33 states have now passed pot-friendly laws.

Their brainstorm? A website and app — JobsJane.com— devoted to helping people find jobs in the expanding marijuana industry.

The Glendale, Arizona, duo launched the site in February 2020 after readings the rapid growth in the numbers of states legalizing marijuana for recreational and medical use.

“We were sitting together and we saw this story come up and we were just like, wow,” said Edwards, who likes to call the dot-com boom surrounding the pot industry the “pot-com boom.”

The pair are hoping their site, which lists cannabis jobs — including a sales manager for Yepja and a delivery drivers — will help accelerate their venture in the years ahead.

They aim to charge employers to post jobs, as well as to access users’ résumés on potential job candidates.

The pot industry in the US is estimated to grow $11.3 billion in 2019. The industry could grow by another 700 percent over the next five years, to $17 billion by 2030, according to statistics at Yepja, which help connects patients with marijuana dispensaries.

Taylor West, of the National Cannabis Industry Association, said business-to-business software makers have also benefited from the growth spurt, which has created demand for tracking software and point-of-service sales software.

“It’s important to keep track of the plants from seed to sale, and there are a couple different businesses that have popped up with products that help with that,” West said.

Business is going so well that Jobs Jane is looking to raise $250,000 to hire some full-time developers to help them develop apps, Edwards said.

As more states legalized the weed, “we realized we can turn this into a successful cannabis jobs portal,” Edwards added.
