”Make sure you open the garage, so no one smells it.”
”My neighbors are cool.”
From buying pot through the guy your coworker knows to now having cannabis retail shops down the street from each other, the cannabis world has come a long way. Growing up, it was taboo. Something that was hidden and only talked about in secret. It was what parents did when the kids went to sleep. Most people who smoked weren’t vocal about their use and no one really knew who smoked except the dealers. It blows my mind that I have been given the opportunity to sell in a cannabis shop, LEGALLY! I am going to tell you about my experience joining in this everchanging industry and as a new budtender at Trove Cannabis.
Stepping into the world of cannabis can be overwhelming or nerve wracking for some but, worry not, this industry is amazing and here at Trove, we love to help customers find exactly what they’re looking for. Instead of picking up whatever your dealer had, you now have the convenient luxury of hundreds of products. Having the opportunity to be a part of this industry and be hands on with these products has been amazing. I knew I liked to smoke weed (don’t we all?) but I didn’t know that being a new budtender would come with having a completely different appreciation for the plant. Seeing the different customers that get to enjoy the plant and share in what we budtenders learn every day is something I appreciate.
If you are looking to get into the budtending side of the “cannafamily” I say dive in. Learn everything there is to know about this plant, believe me, it’s endless. The industry is constantly changing and growing. There are so many ways we can extract, cross and breed the plant, its mind blowing! Whether you started with a makeshift can pipe, homemade apple pipe, rolled a joint for yourself, or just started when recreational marijuana because legal, there is a community behind cannabis and that’s been my favorite part being new to this industry. Stop by and chat with a budtender and share in the cannafam love! Tell us your favorite strains, crazy facts you know about weed or anything else to share in the canna-love. Hope to see you soon!
