In true form, local tech companies are coming up with ways to help dispensaries interact with their customers, provide workforce support, and so much more. Here are some cannatech companies that are pushing the industry forward.

Vangst takes a different spin on on-demand recruitment tech, focusing its efforts on the rapidly growing cannabis industry. The recently launched platform, which currently serves businesses in Colorado and California, connects employers looking to fill temporary positions — such as trimming, harvesting or budtending — with vetted job seekers looking for temporary gigs.

It allows users to pay for their purchases from cannabis retailers directly through its debit payment app. The app enables users to link their checking account to CanPay’s app digitally, making paying for cannabis as tech-enabled as using Apple Pay on your next Starbucks run.
