Once I’m face to face with my ideal budtender, I really like them to take me through all of the options. If I’m there seeking a vape cartridge then please know your vape cart shizzola and be prepared to hold my hand when I don’t know mine.
Unparalleled Product Knowledge and the Ability to Tell a Story
This weed sommelier is also a skilled communicator with unparalleled product knowledge and the ability to tell a story. They have personal experience with the product or know someone who has. They know a fact or two about the manufacturing process of the products and can answer questions about grows, extraction techniques, labels, and potency.
When the budtender embodies these qualities they convey competence and promote confidence. Once I’ve had a good experience with the suggestions of the budtender, I am more likely to trust their word in the future. A knowledgeable budtender can save you money at the dispensary because you’ll be introduced to quality products.
