The book Dispensary Life was written while undergoing training from July-September 2017. The best way to teach was to write it all down as I went with my managers. The best way for me to retain knowledge at the time was to formulate knowledge as we went along.
I searched for books and publications on how to work in the cannabis industry as a Budtender, and there was literally nothing. Everything written already goes from the depths of the business elements of the dispensary. My book is not that. The book was created to assist Budtenders and the public in understanding a dispensary, the roles of who works in a dispensary, and the basics understanding of cannabis.
Being a Budtender has been one of the best jobs/career moves of my life. I love that I get to share my love of cannabis with the people that enter the store. It’s fulfilling to be able to do the thing I’m passionate about and enjoy that with others.
Budtenders experience a different level of education and training depending on where they work from dispensary to dispensary. I believe that we can do better. We can share information and network together to be able to have a brighter future together. I would love to help in any way that I get in feedback from my readers and industry members that notice the need for other ways to do things better in the cannabis sector.
Everyone who wants to join in the industry should be able to, and it should be accessible to anyone who has the desire to jump in. The best way to find out is just to try.
