Cannabis consumers are visiting dispensaries now more than ever since cannabis became recreational in California, so both new and old users are entering the industry for their very first time. For new users, dispensaries are very intimidating unless there is a helpful budtender to guide them through the cases and walls of products.  A budtender is the person behind the counter at a cannabis dispensary, there to help consumers choose which cannabis strains and products will be best for their wants and needs. Every dispensary is different, so budtenders are a valuable resource for consumers browsing the assortment of cannabis products that may seem overwhelming without help.

Fortunately, Civilized sat down with budtenders from all over Los Angeles to learn about cannabis culture and dispensaries in our weekly series Ask A Budtender. In this episode of the series, the budtenders discuss the most annoying trends in the industry.
