If you’re like many of our customers, you ask your local budtender for advice. Budtenders are like bartenders or sommeliers. They know a lot about cannabis in general, and they know even more about the specific products that we have in stock. Budtenders are here to help you get the best experience when it comes to cannabis. They can help you pick the most appropriate products from the wide selection here at K-Town Melrose.
Budtenders are customer service oriented experts in cannabis. Their primary goal is the make sure every customer has a positive experience with marijuana. A good budtender won’t judge you, will make you feel comfortable sharing what happening with you, and will help educate you when it comes to cannabis strains, product options, and ways you can take cannabis. A really good budtender has first hand personal experience with the products they recommend and genuinely cares about helping cannabis to positively impact your life.
There are so many different cannabis products available and it can be difficult to choose the one you need. Most cannabis products have specific characteristics and will provide specific relief or highs depending on the dosage. Your budtender can help you choose the product and dosage that’s right for you.
A Good BudTender Can Save You Time and Money
Before you spend your time and money trying random products for the first time, save yourself the trouble and check in with the budtender at your preferred dispensary. Explain what you are looking for and why you’re looking for it. If there are specific things you want in your weed, let them know. Be honest and remember that your budtender is there to help.
The only thing most budtenders love more than weed, is talking about weed. The only thing most budtenders love more than talking about weed is sharing what they know about weed with others. Take advantage of it.
Ask questions. Ask lots of questions. The only bad or stupid question is the one you don’t ask.
Once your budtender knows what you’re looking for and why you need it, they can use their vast product knowledge to select the product, or products, best suited for your needs. They can recommend products targeted specifically for what you think you need. They may even be able to recommend products that you didn’t know you wanted or needed.
If your budtender recommends a product that, for whatever reason, you don’t want, be sure to let them know. Also let them know why. They can recommend something else and will be better equipped to recommend future products based on your preferences.
Budtenders can take the confusion out of your first visit to a dispensary. For that matter, they can take the confusion out of every visit to a cannabis dispensary.
There are so many different products sold at dispensaries: flower, edibles, shatter, concentrates, resin, vape pens, pre-rolls and more. There are many brands from which to choose as well. Shy of trying everything in the store, it’s nearly impossible to know which one is best for you. How do you know what to take to help with your particular issue?
You ask your local budtender!
That’s where your friendly neighborhood budtender comes in. Your budtender knows the products sold in the dispensary and has, in many cases, had the opportunity to try them out himself.
Feel Free to Review Your Budtender
As much as budtenders love their jobs, they still like to feel good about what they do. A little feedback goes a long way. That’s why it’s important, as you build your relationship with your budtender, that you let them know just how much you appreciate them. It’s also important that you let the cannabis community know. Sure flowers and (cannabis infused) chocolates are nice, but sometimes, they really appreciate a good review on Leefly, Weedmaps, Yelp, or Google.
