It’s a beautiful thing that the cannabis industry continues to grow, but with the growth does come some heavy competition.
With all sorts of companies selling a variety of cannabis products, you never know who is going to be successful and who is going to fail.
This is why it is incredibly important to hire professionals who have their dispensary technician certifications. When people go to cannabis dispensaries whether it be for medicine or for recreational reasons, they typically will only deal with budtenders. If the budtenders are the only ones who actually work with the cannabis customers, those budtenders better be knowledgeable of all the products. They also must be able to work well with the people and help guide them to the cannabis products they are seeking. In order to become knowledgeable about the cannabis products and how they work, all budtenders must complete a training course. These courses can cost anywhere from $100 to $500. The budtender training courses also can be completed online or at various training facilities. Some people are really good at learning online, so that’s a good idea, especially if you want to save yourself a commute while taking the training classes. Just keep in mind that when you apply for various cannabis dispensary jobs, you will be tested on what you know. If you aren’t able to explain things like what the endocannabinoid system is, then you probably are not going to get the job. You truly need to be an expert in everything when it comes to cannabis if you plan on working in the cannabis industry.
