I needed to hire someone who could hit the ground running and this girl didn’t fit the bill.
The job of a cannabis consultant is very important to patients. A cannabis consultant is the one person that interacts with patients when they come to the cannabis dispensary. The job of the consultant is to know the difference between the strains and assist patients with their orders. Sativa strains are uplifting and provide energy, while Indica strains are more sedate and relaxing. We also carry a number of hybrid strains that have traits of both the sativas and indicas. When I hire a new cannabis consultant to work in the dispensary, I always issue a test. Applicants don’t prefer to take a test for a job, but it is one way that I can find out if the budtender will have the proper knowledge to help our customers. I was going to hire a new girl last week, but she failed the assessment test miserably. She did not know the difference between blue dream & OG Kush. She claimed to have completed a cannabis consulting course online, but I don’t think she actually completed the course. The woman had a certificate from the Cannabis consulting company, but she didn’t know that blue dream was a sativa and OG Kush was an Indica. I needed to hire someone who could hit the ground running and this girl didn’t fit the bill. I had to continue looking at applicants for two more weeks before another person stood out and grabbed my attention. The guy named Jack, had three years of budtender experience and a degree in horticulture from WU. He is now my assistant manager.
