Cannabis Budtender Certificate

The Cannabis Budtender Certificate combines the Cannabis Professional and Customer Service for Cannabis Retail from the Academy of Cannabis Science. It offers important factual knowledge to work with cannabis as a store employee, manager, or one of the many positions within the retail space. You will explore the history and folklore of cannabis, the plant's anatomy, cannabinoid science, customer service in the cannabis industry, retail operation basics, as well as the law and current regulations. Retail marijuana employees can incorporate this information to better serve both medical and "recreational" adult customers, and become advocates for responsible ongoing customer education.
