Empowering Wellness, Navigating the World of Cannabidiol with Expert Guidance


I received my budtender certification from Herbalrising, I knew a lot of the knowledge already in the course but did learn a few things and enjoyed the guest speakers. Upon receiving my certification and putting it on my resume I found I started to get many more phone calls to jobs I applied to, and I found a job. With the help of April on my resume and being able to have something Cannabis related on my resume I got a job at a grow and have advanced significantly within the company. This class helped me greatly but what I did with the certification and my passion for cultivating Cannabis is why I had the success I've had, if you aren't motivated to get out there and fight for the job and to find your niche then you're not going to get far.
