It’s a pharmacist’s task to answer any question you might have about the medicine that your doctor prescribed you.
- In a perfect world all physicians would guess exactly what to tell each patient regarding their medications without ever leaving important details out.
But it’s not just failing to educate their patients about a drug’s effects, they might forget that you’re already taking another medication that has known interactions with the up-to-date medication. This happened to me numerous years ago, and it was my pharmacist who noticed it. If it wasn’t for my pharmacist, I would have unknowingly taken numerous drugs simultaneously that are known to cause heart problems in synergy. Even though cannabis isn’t going to give you side effects that could be fatal, you still don’t want to unknowingly buy and consume a strain of cannabis that is going to give you poor effects. Not most people is affected by the plant in the same way, and numerous people like strains that are dissimilar and have contrasting effects. There are people who like sativas, others who only buy indicas, and a handful that stick with hybrids to get effects that are anywhere in between. A budtender should guess what kind terpenes are dominant in each strain and how they will affect the customer’s experience. If you guess 1 particular strain is poor for your mental health for whatever reason, you can avoid other strains that have similar terpene concentrations. That’s why a budtender needs to possess as much comprehension and information about the cannabis plant as possible. If I have questions when I’m shopping at the medical cannabis dispensary, the budtenders who have the right answers or guess someone laboring in the store that does.
