The medical marijuana industry is a growing field and offering medical miracles. I have dealt with seizures for the last ten years. They continue to gain in intensity as I get older. A cousin of mine recommended trying medical marijuana. I was surprised by how much the whole marijuana industry has changed. As it has become legalized and proved beneficial, cannabis has become more accepted. It is widely used by people who struggle with a wide range of medical problems. When I stopped by the medical marijuana dispensary for the first time, I was overwhelmed by the choices. There was a variety of strains, extracts, edibles, and topicals. There was as a range of new cannabis options I’d never heard of before. I had no idea how I was going to make a selection from so many products. How could I figure out what would work best for me? I soon learned that marijuana dispensaries employ a staff of budtenders. These workers at the dispensary help people determine the right options for their specific needs. The budtender I worked with was extremely helpful. He was very knowledgeable on every product and what it did. The budtender asked a whole bunch questions and used this information to guide me in the selections. I was impressed that he knew what exactly I needed, and even how strong of a cannabis strain. Plus, he quickly located my choices from his vast selection. At first I was suspicious that the budtender might have ulterior motives and was pushing certain strains, but the guy was totally upfront. I found out that the he is so knowledgeable in the products l because of completing budtender employee education. He did a portion of budtender training online through a company that specializes in the cannabis education field. I had not realized budtenders receive training.
