A cannabis dispensary has employees on the floor helping customers find the right products, just like any other shop. In the industry, they're known as budtenders, the person behind the counter, there to help consumers choose which cannabis strains and products are best for their wants and needs. Especially now that more dispensaries are open, selling more cannabis products than ever before, it is easy for a first time customer, and even veteran, to get overwhelmed easily. A budtender is there to help browse the assortment of products, making them less intimidating, which helps customers feel more comfortable asking questions about flower, oil, topicals, and all things cannabis.
