10 Budtenders Share Stories From Their Highest Customers

When going to a cannabis dispensary, the same rules apply as going to the grocery store - "Don't shop while hungry." Don't go to a cannabis dispensary after consuming cannabis, because you will want to buy everything like you will want to eat everything. Budtenders everywhere have stories of customers coming in high, which they certainly don't recommend if you don't have a specific purchase in mind.  A budtender is the person behind the counter at a cannabis dispensary, there to help consumers choose which cannabis strains and products are best for their wants and needs, especially when high. Every dispensary is different with different strains, so budtenders are a valuable resource for both new and old consumers searching for the perfect cannabis product.

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 share stories of costumers coming in high.

Few other entrepreneurs in the cannabis space have their hands in quite as many ventures as Lorne Gertner.

Hailing from the fashion industry, this Toronto native says he's on a mission to "make the world a better place through cannabis and design excellence." The only catch is, well, normalizing cannabis — and that's where Gertner's keen eye for style comes in. "In the old days, you were going to be different or you were going to be normal," said Thom Antonio, Gertner's friend, creative director, and collaborator of 35 years.
