In the cannabis seed-to-sale life cycle, delivery falls within the retail stage, in which a legal retailer provides cannabis products to qualified customers for personal use.

Who Needs Cannabis Delivery Training?

Common cannabis delivery job titles include:

  • Cannabis Delivery Driver
  • Cannabis Delivery Associate
  • Cannabis Delivery Specialist

To ensure cannabis products arrive to customers safely and legally, many states require businesses and employees to earn a certificate, license or permit to provide delivery services. Examples of this requirement include Colorado's Regulated Marijuana Delivery act and California's Type 9 and 10 retail licenses.

Depending on state regulations and requirements, delivery employees may need to complete delivery training and Responsible Vendor Training. States often require employees to retake these courses annually or after a specific number of years to remain compliant.

Even in states that don't have a specific license for cannabis delivery employees, all states where medical and adult-use marijuana is legal have training and licensing requirements for any employee that handles cannabis products. For delivery employees, specifically, this can include knowing state laws regarding cannabis possession limits, age verification, address verification and more.
