9 Budtenders Tell Us What Makes a Bad Budtender

For new cannabis consumers, dispensaries are a very intimidating place, 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 share what makes a bad budtender.
