Marijuana Trimming Jobs – this is where many of those looking for cannabis jobs will start out. Trimmers are responsible for the manicuring and preparing of the medicine.

However, many cultivation centers are going away from a full time trimmer and are letting their Junior Growers or Cultivation Site Workers do this among other tasks. Cannabis trimmers harvest marijuana plants by cutting the flowers of the plants from their stems. They are also responsible for weighing, labeling and packaging the trimmed buds. Trimmers also assist in the cultivation area, as needed under the supervision of the Master Grower.
