When I found out that the marijuana dispensary was hiring, I worked really hard to get a job there.
- I knew that in order to be a cannabis consultant, I had to pass a bartender course.
There were several budtender courses offered online. Most of them were only a small fee. I found a budtender course that had really good reviews. They offered me free education materials online and practice versions of the test. I studied for several days before I decided to take the test. I thought I was prepared after studying that much. I ended up missing five questions and I was only allowed to miss four. I was devastated by the fact that I did not pass the test. I was ready to give up, but my boyfriend told me to try again. This time he helped me prepare by making flashcards. We studied lots of information that was available in the budtender under education class resources. The next time I took the test, I didn’t miss a single question. I even got the two questions about the federal laws correct. I added the education to my resume and updated everything online. The next day I got a call from a marijuana dispensary. The person saw my resume and she also noticed that I had recently passed a budtender course. She wondered if I was available for an interview the very next day. I met with the manager of the dispensary. We talked for nearly 30 minutes. When I left, I felt really good about the job at the marijuana dispensary.
