There are a lot of jobs out there where I wouldn’t expect the employees to be super knowledgeable regarding all of their supplier’s products and services. There is a sizable difference between a regular cashier at the grocery store and a waiter at a steakhouse. While the latter spends most of their shift taking orders and making suggestions based on the menu offerings, the former will basically scan items and process payments. It’s no surprise in the least that cashiers often look at me sort of like a deer in the headlights when I ask them about a product and what aisle it happens to be in. I sincerely love it when someone is willing to go out of their way to help me with a concern I’m having trying to find something I really need on the shelves. I actually run into similar complications when I’m shopping at the local weed store. You expect cannabis budtenders to be easily trained and understand most, if not all of the products in the store, however several are just glorified cashiers who are trained to handle the register. They scan your products and accept your money for the cannabis products. But sometimes I need help finding a strain that’s going to task well for my personal ailments. If there are all of these strains at the weed store I haven’t tried yet, it can help to ask the budtender if they’ve experienced any of them on a personal level. Other times I want them to scan the item and show me the terpene percentage that is found on the lab report results. This can also supply me with the information I need on which terpenes are dominant, something that can tell me if I’ll appreciate a certain strain or not in a good amount of cases.
