Being a bud-tender can be a fun and exciting job. A job where you can meet like-minded people, be consistently learning and introduce new consumers to the magic of cannabis. For those who wish to become a bud-tender, cannabis retail training is a must.

Budtenders should expect new consumers to come in equipped with questions. Bud-tenders are these individuals' introduction into the world of cannabis. Being a heavily regulated industry, bud-tenders must pay close attention to what they can and cannot say in regards to Health Canada standards. It is important to know as a bud-tender, you cannot give medical advice while working in recreational shops.

They will also need to understand the importance of prevention of chemical and physical hazards, proper cleaning, personal hygiene and how to legally store cannabis.

Working in cannabis retail means playing a role in prevention. Those working in cannabis retail positions have a mandatory obligation to be on the lookout for anyone who is under the influence and about to use a vehicle. Individuals in road-fatalities who are under the influence of drugs triple that of those who are drunk. You’ll also need to watch out for minors.
