Becoming a Cannabis Budtender

When medical marijuana was legalized in our state, I became interested in truly working at 1 of these dispensaries as a budtender.

I believed that I would be a superb budtender because I have experience in client repair and I am well versed in general knowledge regarding cannabis products.

However, I knew that there would be a lot to learn. Budtenders are responsible for recommending products and dosages that will provide clients at the dispensary positive experiences. Not everyone is the same and not everyone is looking for the same type of cannabis product, so budtenders need to be an expert on which products are best based on the interest of the consumer. It’s also substantial to have an understanding of the science behind cannabis usage, as well. I went to school to study a science-related field, so I also felt that I had the right knowledge and expertise to succeed as a budtender. I took a few training programs that were available online, free of charge. Once I had some cannabis self-education on our resume, I started looking for openings. It wasn’t long before I found our current job as a budtender. After a few years of truly working at a medical marijuana dispensary, I adore our job. I have a deeper understanding of the cannabis products in our store the longer I job here. I get to build excellent relationships with our clients, and they trust our opinion when they are shopping for new products.
