The Opportunity

Tokyo Smoke became a household name in cannabis long before the first legal gram was ever sold. Through our award-winning concept of combining craft coffee with cannabis accessories and lifestyle goods, Tokyo Smoke has been revolutionizing cannabis retail well before 10 / 17.

In addition to our Tokyo Smoke coffee shops, we now operate a growing network of beloved cannabis dispensaries. A proud part of the Canopy Growth family, we are now better positioned than ever to write cannabis history.

As we continue to expand our retail presence opening dispensaries across Canada, we are sparking something good’ through our community-focused, education-led and elevated shopping experience.

A major driving force behind this growth is, of course, our team. Our retail team brings the Tokyo Smoke brand to life sharing thoughtful, intentional and accessible education with our guests.

We make memorable retail experiences and consistently exceed our guest’s high expectations.

Joining us sparks an opportunity for you to be part of an industry-leading company alongside an ambitious and growth-focused team.

At Tokyo Smoke, we’re passionate about cannabis normalization and educating our community on how cannabis can ignite an intent-driven life.

If you are ready to be a trailblazer and make history here with us, we want to meet you!
