I don't think that's true, I've also been there a few times site seeing myself and have the ability to pick things up quick.

I believe to be a budtender all that is required is knowledge about cannabis and what strains would be best for the customers requirement whether it be for medical reasons or to just get high. I am starting to think it's going be hard to get though since it's a dream job for most stoners but then again do most stoners know much about cannabis.  

You are over glorifying a job in the service industry, trust me I am passionate about cannabis and have been for many years and when i was younger i thought a CS job would be cool and a good use of my passion.

Since living here for 1.5 years i have watched many new BT's come and go, when they first arrive they are enthused in their jobs, eager to learn, happy to see boxes of weed, happy to talk to customers and try and make recommendations.

Almost always about 3 weeks into their job they have lost enthusiasm, they hate looking at the boxes of weed they cna't smoke and their boss makes a pretty penny from a 50% mark up
, they resent the tourists, they resent their regulars who can come in and afford supply, they resent their long boring hours of serving the same shit over and over again. recommending crap to tourist only to have them ignore you or question your choices, the hardest part for me would be recommending half the shit the coffeeshops sell as high grade weed, when in reality it is fresh unflushed commercial shit.

Basically it's not a great job, few stay passionate and the ones that are happy are normally the owners.



Thanks for info, gave me some food for thought.


What about other jobs over there, is there much un-skilled work about that pays enough to live off?

Main reason I was thinking budtender is because I know cannabis like the back of my hand and don't have many other skills.

Coffee shops are overrated. The best way to experience it is to visit that place as customer not as employee. If cannabis is your passion and you want it to stay that way, just smoke weed.
Working in coffee shop would probably just annoy you in the end. You can't smoke weed there while working...

There is always room for breeders or growers, it's just getting set up and establishing yourself.

That would be perfect but it's getting the money together for the equipment and enough to live on while waiting for the harvest :/.
