Work from Home – Data Researchers Needed for Cannabis Industry – 20 Hrs./Wk. Minimum

If you like to do research, Cannabiz Media is looking for virtual part-time Data Researchers to help maintain its database on the marijuana industry. The listing doesn’t mention the pay rate. We’ve emailed the company for a figure and will update here when we hear back.

Cannabiz Media keeps a large database on marijuana licenses, so journalists, businesspeople, investors and others can track how the cannabis industry is growing and developing.

What You’ll Be Doing

In this job you’d be doing things like scanning news feeds for stories about licenses, creating charts in Excel from statistics and other data, doing fact-checking on legal and financial and regulatory info, and doing research from a wide variety of sources, online and off-.

The listing doesn’t say what the offline research would involve. But we’re assuming it’s via phone, since Researchers can apparently work from anywhere in the US. However, the company hasn’t confirmed this.


For this job, you’ll need to be detail-oriented and organized, able to work with minimal supervision, be familiar with Excel, Google Apps (Docs and Sheets), Gmail and Chrome, and have strong written and verbal communication skills.

Extra points if you’ve done academic or legal research. As with so many work from home jobs, you’ll probably also get extra credit if you’ve worked from home before, so be sure to mention it if you have.
