There are Learning Opportunities everywhere!

Think about all the legal marijuana states in existence. Arizona, Nevada, California, Colorado, Washington, among the others. There are thirty-six states that have medical marijuana; and eighten states and the District of Columbia who have legalized adult use marijuana. Over forty countries have implemented medical marijuana. These kind of numbers lead to the belief that legal marijuana is becoming a major job creation source for the world.

Now is an exciting time to consider a career in an emerging industry. Working as a budtender is a good way to get involved because there’s no experience quite like face-to-face experience. You may want to brush up on all your cannabis communications research. We suggest visiting Leafly to get familiar with strains.

How to get a dispensary job with no experience

In order to move up within any job, you have to earn your way through the ranks. It isn’t any different in dispensaries.

Depending on the dispensary, budtenders can be some of the greatest assets working there and they’re always at the center of attention when it comes to patients and customers.

By getting a job inside a dispensary, you can get your foot in the door and start working your way toward management. Working as a budtender exposes you to customers in a way that makes them happy, you are also providing them with legal access to cannabis.  After budtending for a while and getting a feel for dispensary culture and how the industry works, you can move up by shadowing the lead budtender.
