Budtenders in both medical and recreational dispensaries play a variety of roles for the customer. You must play the role of an educator; working with the patient or customer to find the strain that best suits their needs, or educating consumers on the federal and state laws surrounding its use.
Our Budtender Certification trains you on all the important aspects of cannabis, so that you may provide education to customers as well as compassionate recommendations for the patients that you serve. Education is a powerful tool for you to attract new customers, increase positive community relationships, and ensuring the safe operation of the dispensary.
You will receive the training for the most popular position in a cannabis dispensary, the “Budtender.” As the industry is rapidly growing in legitimacy, our Budtender Certification will provide you with the skill-set and knowledge needed to succeed in this position. Our training and certification curriculum will equip an individual with the knowledge necessary to be a valuable member of the dispensary team.

The dispensary must also play the role of a responsible community member, both in their local community and within the cannabis community. With all the varied and stringent regulations throughout the world, this can be a difficult task to accomplish.
The key to handling these roles with the greatest ease and efficiency is education. The value of having Budtenders that consistently gives the same informed message is incalculable. Far too often the information relayed by dispensary staff is anecdotal at best and may vary from person to person.

In the increasingly competitive cannabis job market, providing a prospective employer with a certification from Green CulturED shows that you have taken the initiative to learn on your own and will increase your chances of getting hired. It will demonstrate to your prospective employer that you will require far less training than other applicants, and will put you ahead of other candidates who are applying for positions in the cannabis industry.
By training all employees consistently it allows your business to provide the proper information that will be given to customers since there is a wide range of information and it can be difficult to keep up to date with, much less to train an employee on. Additionally, it reduces the risk for your business by having a workforce that is aware of all the rules and has been certified as having the needed knowledge.
