Job Description

At Dixie, we believe that cannabis is powerful, that quality is important, and that accurate dosing is everything. Which is why we’ve been leading the industry through research, education and advocacy. And we’ve established ourselves as the trusted source for innovative, safe, effective and delicious cannabis products along the way.

Located in Denver, Colorado, Dixie Brands, Inc.,(Dixie) through its affiliates across the country, has been formulating and producing award-winning THC and CBD-infused products since 2009. What began as a single flagship product has now expanded to over 30 different products across over 100 SKUs, representing the industry’s finest edibles, tinctures, topicals, and connoisseur grade extractions.

We handcraft every product with pure, CO2-extracted THC, a process we’re proud of. We go far above and beyond the mandated batch testing for every product we sell. When it comes to cannabis, consistency and accuracy are highly important. At Dixie, we’re a lot more than the producers of THC-infused products, we are the future of cannabis.
