Welcome back to Seed to Sound!

This week we discuss the exciting – and rapidly growing – field of cannabis technology.

In this episode, Vangst tech recruiter Jontè Major chats with Mike Hayes of CannaTech about how cannabis technology is evolving and the demand for talented employees is increasing!

Hayes emphasizes the great overlap between the cannabis and technology spaces.

“CannaTech is trying to make a space for this industry, and to make this space more legitimate, and to make people within technology see it as a legitimate space,” he said. “It’s about getting people together from different backgrounds … a lot of people who are interested in tech are interested in cannabis and the other way around.”

Hayes began his career working for software companies like LivingSocial before he moved to Denver. His cannabis journey began at MJ Freeway, and he was “kicking himself” for not getting into cannabis sooner!

“I’ve always been a user of cannabis, an advocate for cannabis, and I never really thought to put that together with my interest and career in technology and software,” said Hayes. “So when I thought those two things could meet, that was pretty exciting to me – and I pretty much haven’t looked back.”
