When medical marijuana was legalized in my state, I became interested in actually working at 1 of these dispensaries as a budtender.
- I believed that I would be a good budtender because I have experience in customer repair plus 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 plus dosages that will give clients at the dispensary positive experiences. Not almost everyone is the same plus not almost everyone is looking for the same genre 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 crucial to have an understanding of the calculus behind cannabis usage, as well. I went to university to learn a science-related field, so I also felt that I had the right knowledge plus 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 my resume, I started looking for openings. It wasn’t long before I found my new task as a budtender. After a few years of actually working at a medical marijuana dispensary, I prefer my task. I have a deeper understanding of the cannabis products in our store the longer I work here. I get to build excellent relationships with our clients, plus they trust my opinion when they are shopping for new products.
