A budtender is the person behind the counter at every cannabis dispensary, there to help consumers choose which cannabis strains and products are best for their smoking wants and needs. Every dispensary is different with different strains, and even different names for a budtender, but call them what you want, they're all there as a valuable resource for both new and old consumers searching for the perfect cannabis product. Each customer that they meet is also different, but they tend to ask the same questions, which includes their most common question, "Do you get free weed?"
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 most asked questions.
