There are a variety of different products available in each and every marijuana dispensary.
- Each one of these products can be used to help a different medical ailment.
When I got my job at a medical marijuana dispensary, I had to go through some education classes before I could actually start working inside of the shop. The manager said it was important for me to be able to identify all of the products in the store. I didn’t have to know each specific strain, but I needed to be able to tell her the difference between a concentrate, flower, and edible product. I studied every day for 2 hours in the morning and then I worked in the back of the store fulfilling orders. Working in the back of the store was a really good way for me to learn about all of the different products. At the end of my 30-day probation period, had to answer 20 questions at random by the manager and she could ask me about any product in the store. I got 19 of the questions right and one of the questions I got half of the question right. After weeks of preparation and time spent studying for the quiz, I passed and started my job working at the counter as a budtender. I get paid two more dollars every hour that I work and I am eligible for full-time benefits and status. I plan to save up for an apartment. My girlfriend and I are living in my parents basement right now but it would be nice to have a place of our own.
