At Urbana we are passionate about improving lives by helping people get the most out of cannabis. We are looking for people who take pride in providing exceptional customer service and ensuring that everyone feels welcome in our stores and lounges.

We provide continuous cannabis education and are looking for team members who are curious about the science of cannabis. We are committed to our culture of learning and sharing what we learn with our customers and each other.

We are one of the fastest growing dispensaries in California and we’re looking for team members who want to grow with us.

Urbana was voted one most beautiful cannabis dispensaries in America, a top-10 dispensary in Northern California and “One the best dispensaries to visit with your Mom” (which says a lot about our service and style).

We have Consultants instead of Budtenders because we are committed to connecting with each customer, understanding what they want to get from cannabis and making recommendations based on our knowledge and experience. Importantly, we are always looking for Retail Consultants with great cannabis knowledge to be leaders on our team!

Urbana Consultants work closely with our skilled managers to continually expand their knowledge about cannabis and make every shift a new learning experience.

If you love helping, being part of a fun, smart and committed team, and are committed to customer service we would love to meet you.
