For a while I had a successful cannabis dispensary.
I think this is because there was hardly any competition.
Once my competitors started cropping up I began to lose money. I was the first one on the block, why is nobody staying loyal to me? I knew I was missing something in my dispensary but I didn’t know what. I needed a fresh pair of eyes to take a look at my business and help me make some hard cuts. I was suspicious my staff was scaring all the business away. I was prepared to fire everyone and start fresh. The cannabis consultant I hired was great. The guy immediately started looking at the books, checking out the competition, products and talking to our local grower. He then came back to me with the issue. He said my staff was great, but they didn’t know anything. My budtenders didn’t know very much about the products they were selling. They were friendly, clean cut, fun and looked professional. They needed cannabis education courses. How could someone trust them recommending a product they knew nothing about? I realized one of my workers didn’t even know what THC and CBD was. The cannabis consulting immediately knew where to send my workers for a cannabis education boot camp experience. My workers loved it! They all felt super confident after getting their classes and have been selling way better in the store. My numbers have gone up since they are able to upsell people, recommend similar products and be knowledgeable in their field. I am very glad I had them do classes.
