Top 5 reasons why your budtender hates you

Categories: Marijuana

Medical-marijuana-sign.jpg
Inspired by our own "Top 3 reasons why your bartender hates you" and "8 Reasons why your drug dealer hates you" from our sister paper, LA Weekly, we here at Mile Highs and Lows decided to throw together the entirely Top 5 Reasons Why Your Budtender Hates You.

Let's face it, being the person who sits behind a counter weighing out ganja all day long might not seem like hardest job in the world, and there are plenty of people who would take that gig just for the leftover shake at the end of the day. But that doesn't mean it isn't work. I spoke with a few budtenders around town and merged their responses into this list:

DirtyHands.jpg
1. You reach into every jar with your grubby little hands.

See those big metal tongs on the counter? Use them. Nobody wants to smoke whatever nastiness may be on your hands, nor do they want the crystals that should be on their herb stuck to your fingers.

professor_frink.jpg
2. You are a know-it-all.

Budtenders like seeing different kinds of herb, and if you've got something worthwhile, then by all means bust it out. But condescending, my-pot-is-better-than-yours attitudes get old quick. If your friend has better chronic, go get it from him instead of bad-mouthing our product. Our Diesel isn't as good as your caregiver's? Go get a bag from him. You've seen better hash at another shop? Great, go buy it there. Odds are it isn't, and that's why you are in the shop. Also, budtenders say they're noticing patients complaining about herb not being dense enough. Too bad if you don't know what a good, stringy sativa looks like -- but rest assured that a gram of plant matter is a gram of plant matter, regardless of the density.

3. The line behind you isn't getting any shorter.

Budtenders are all about helping you with your wellness needs, and have no problem taking an hour to do so even if there are patients behind you. And yeah, a lot of the time they're sitting around with nothing else to do but listen to you. But when there's a line, how about hurrying things up? They don't need to hear about your shitty job, your weekend plans, or your cat's birthday party.

alg_the_situation.jpg
*Sidenote: one of the female budtenders I spoke with said her major pet peeve is being hit on. Guys, even though it's called a "bar," it really isn't one. Leave your pick-up lines at home.

hookup.jpg
4. You only come in for the freebies/You ask for the "hook-up."

For a budtender, there's nothing worse than barely getting through an introduction when a patient starts asking about what freebies the dispensary is offering. If you are a first-time patient, you'll likely get a little bonus in your bag -- but let them at least get through the spiel of what they have to offer. A dispensary has set prices and weights for a reason: This is an actual business with an actual business plan, not some dude selling pot out of his basement.

letsbefriends-shark.jpg
5. You hang around the shop.

Budtenders realize that they've created a cool spot and they know how easy it is to get sucked into the glossy pictures of High Times on the waiting-room table -- but go home. They put in the leather couches so that people waiting in line would have a comfortable spot to chill, not so you'd have a place to nap for a few hours in the middle of the day. To quote Seinfeld, "I already have enough friends."

For the most part, I enjoy being a budtender.  However, there are a few things that annoy me to no end:

1. "What's the best you got?"  Give me a fucking break.  That's like asking "What's the best city for me to take a vacation in?" or "what's the best tasting soda on the market?"  It's a matter of opinion, bozo.  I can give you guidance (do you need stress or pain relief, do you want to be knocked out of functional, etc), but if all you want to know is "what's the best you got", please take your ignorant ass to another dispensary.

2. "Do you have any XXX (first time, military, student, senior, etc.) discounts?"  Cheap ass motherfuckers.  Come to the dispensary a few times, spend some money, and I'll throw in something to make you happy.  Otherwise, go try to bargain with the illegal dispensaries where the don't give a shit if you have a valid recommendation or an expired CA ID.

3. People who refuse to read.  "How much is ...?"  Read the fucking menu, that's what it's there for.  "Indica or sativa?"  Read the fucking menu.  "Indoor or outdoor?"  Read the fucking menu.  "And how much is this?"  It's the same price I quoted you 2 minutes ago, which is the same price that is on the menu.

To make it clear, most of the people who do these things are not real patients.  They are recreational users, wanting to look at nearly every strain before buying one gram.  Of course that one gram is supposed to be absolutely top shelf and cost no more than $10.  Then they act surprised when you apply the sales tax, bringing the price up to a whopping $10.85.

Good grief, you people take this stuff so seriously. Coming from an actual Patient service rep or "budtender" working at a shop in a not-so-nice part of Sacramento, yes! This is some of the nonsense we deal with on a daily basis, with the rise of ignorant people getting their Dr.'s recc. for a $45 down the street and all the "club hopping" going on. We live for the TRUE patients that come in and love taking care of them. The other mmm..35%? Yeah, jokers that just want to come in and start stuff, or hit on the budtenders, or make you show them every top shelf bud in the shop, scope them out under the lights, weigh out different buds.... then pull out $5 and demand a "hook up" then ask us "where your man at, lemme take you out girl!" Yes people, THIS DOES HAPPEN. This is the kind of stuff we make jokes of to lighten up our day, we are by no means attacking you patients out there, you're the ones who keep us sane.

I agree with #2 completely. I know growers who cut half the bud off to get that "dense" look. As far as I've learned, if it's on the bud, covered in crystals, and gets you high LEAVE IT ALONE! Don't trim half the bud off so you can charge $4-500/ounce. You keep the half for yourself and overcharge your customers. Also, the crystal damage alone makes me cringe!

I used to work as a budtender, now before coming a budtender I thought the following(even at the place where I work)1) it's overpriced bullshit(ya you got a lot of overhead, but 70 an 1/8th - get over yourself)2) Unfortunately, even in a nonprofit, all of the owners are the biggest pieces of shit. They're all about capitalism and inflating their salary(as you do know, that is how they get rid of the profit) while still fucking over the workers3) They hire hot budtenders who don't know shit about weed...Like someone else said that the person doesn't know the difference between Sativa and Indica and Hybrids. It's funny how these dumbass operators, think that Bud needs hot women to sell it. The stuff sells itself and needs no one to help it sell(unless you're pushing bullshit)

After becoming a budtender, I realize theres 2 sides to hate.

1) patients look at jars over and over2) they ask for the "skunkiest" weed you have acting like it's the best off smell....3) They just got their rec, never even smoked weed a day in their life.....come in the store to buy medicine and start by asking "how do you use marijuana?" and follow up with "how much do you need to smoke to get high" and "how much should I buy"...Jeez, everyone is different and don't expect the budtender to be your physician(not even physicians know this stuff).

wow. yeah cannabliss has def turned into another thing for people to argue about. You should just grow your own organic good quality ganja people. A budtender is not the most credible source of info any way. Theres a lot out there fo FREE!!!!

maybe i am a pot snob and I dis the popcorn buds that they try to offer at top shelf prices, but you don't see me buy it or come back either do you? i am lucky to find two or three decent offerings at most shops. now from the production perspective, the shops only buy bud that is dirt cheap. they do not pay a premium for top quality. and that is the real reason they don't offer much of anything worth smoking. I do produce enough for myself and sometimes want to put mine to the pepsi challenge. otherwise, i would not waste my time as it is 90% garbage that should just be made into hash if they cared about selling a quality medicine

nothing the dispensaries offer is fire nor is it topnotch..they all get supply for 2500 lb from cali then come to colorado and sell it for 65-1/8. or they grow it themselves with not a clue how to grow and harvest it in 45 days and then dry it in 2 days and sell it half wet and not cured!

dispensaries are glorified dealers..nothing more!

Bushman and Anon:

We regularly encourage patients to split up their purchases amongst a few strains to help them find what works best for them. We've had patients split up an ounce between 14 different strains. If we had 28 strains in at the time, that works too.

The point was, and what this article jokes about, is simple courtesy. It's like if you had someone test drive every car on the lot. The idea that we don't appreciate every patient that walks through our door is laughable. It's obvious that neither of you has visited us, but I'd encourage you to. And smell as many jars as you'd like. ;)

I budtend and what I don't like is when patients come in and ask for free grams after they've donated $10 or when they try to hustle you for more weight or better price and then lay the coupon on you.

The Releaf Center says: We don't hate any of our patients, but this cracked me up.Can't believe you didn't get "the guy who smells every jar twice then buys a half gram."

LMFAO, Bushman - so true. It's probably better not to publish this sort of thing for the world to see, agreed? They must have been smoking some other shop's true A-grade medicine :) Do what you do and say what you say, but at least have the business sense/class to wait until the patients leave, at least. You used to have a great staff there, and now everything you sell is just FIRE - and 1) my cock is a foot-long, really, and 2) Scientology is a real religion. I'll go down the street to Herbal Connections (not much better frankly) if I'm ever stuck in the Highlands ghetto again.

I worked at a dispensary in Federal Heights and was embarrassed by the way people were treated when they came in. From the Bitchy women behind the counter being rude to people and the manager flat out lying to people and berating customers if they didn't buy what he recommended. If you want to stand in line and listen to the manager talk about how his teeth don't fit correctly or that he has oozing, bleeding soars on his leg or all of his other personal problems then their the perfect dispensary. When we trimmed the meds our hands turned purple from all the additives the owner puts on his buds to make them look good yet boasts of his meds being organic! I will not go to a dispensary that advertises for help based on looks, I am a female grower/caregiver and I can't get a job as a "Budtender" because I'm not "eyecandy" which begs the question... Are women Patients not wanted? Where's the Handsome, beefy guy behind the counter for me to gawk at? I've never been to a Pharmacy were all they hire are scantily clad women who look like their night job is servicing the customers from the daytime. I think hiring for looks and not knowledge feeds the public sterotype that MMJ is not a legitimate medical drug and just for stonners. Dispensaries need to portray a more professional image to help legitimize MMJ in the public eye and yes that does include getting rid of the dancing idiots at the curb holding Marijuana signs. When is the last time you drove past Walgreen's and saw someone dancing out from with a picture of Oxycontin??

vote with your money. if you don't like the place, don't buy there. imo any capable mmj patient should be growing their own. be self-sufficient. growing is much cheaper in the long run and there is no stress of dealing with dispensaries. i'd rather save myself a buck than line someone else's pockets. i understand that running a dispensary has a lot of costs (salaries, storefront costs, inventory) but when you grow the costs are cut significantly. Free labor (you) and free grow place (your residence). Initial growing costs can be high ($1250 to $2000 for a good setup) but monthly maintenance cost comes down to the price of nutrients, electricity, bulbs etc. $400 an oz retail drops to about $40 when done correctly. don't order out ... eat in!

The MMJ scene is, in a word, bogus. If it were legit there would be real compassion, instead of $60 eighths. This after having to buy a "license" for about $166 and $100 to see a"doctor". come on!!

Oops, I made a spelling error: Robber Romer REEKS, not reaks.

And please remember not to vote for corrupt, paid liars like Romer, or they'll continue trying to sabotage our access with more blatant lies and fear mongering.

The people voted for access to medicinal cannabis almost a decade ago, but they have been undermined by the rich players and their purchased politicians.

What a disgrace.

RobberRomerReamedRealPatients
RobberRomerReamedRealPatients

Romer reamed the patients completely -- and most of our elected officials were too dumb or too cowardice to end his attacks on CO's Constitution -- but he helped his dispensary buddies make certain that they could continue making a lot of money...

Robber Romer Reaks.

And most of the dispensaries had no problem throwing the patients and a few caregivers under the tank so that the new, improved centers could be part of the new DEA-controlled "in crowd."

In addition to patient coops, we really need a Patient Review Board, as many have already suggested -- to help prevent future attacks on our access and to help lobby and share medical fact. And we could use this Board to also investigate any possible politician collusion and to tell the truth about outside lobbyists who mess with patient access.

PatientCoopsSoundGreat
PatientCoopsSoundGreat

thanks for the tip, Joe.

i think the idea of patient collectives or patient coops is a great idea, but it is difficult for many patients to organize and do all the much-needed work, because many of them are indeed very sick or dying.

we'd need some help from people who are not dealing with serious medical situations.

and it would cost quite a bit to get through all the hoops, rent the space, buy the security, buy the growing equipment, etc... but i'd be glad to do as much as i could, if there's enough patient interest...we'd need some money from some philanthropist who realizes many patients never get a chance to follow their doctors' recommendations to use medicinal cannabis, because the prices are so steeep...

Screw the price fixers and Constitution saboteurs who own the scene and the politicians. The patients need to unite and get as strong as possible to help ALL fellow patients (the dying would get first priority).

Has anybody talked to any attorneys regarding what patient coops would need to do, in order to operate and provide medicine at a small fraction of its current price-fixed norms?

Any advice out there regarding patient coops/collectives from people in the know, esp. attorneys?

I agree that there are many reasons to hate your budtender, I especially want to hate some at the dispensaries that are closest to me-45-60 minute drive. Here's my top 5:

1. No bathroom after you've driven 45 miles.2. Rude, tells you one strain is better when he's not even looking at them.3. Has so many tattoos that I want to run. Also has the dispensary logo tattooed on neck (yikes!).4. Doesn't smile or make eye contact.5. Can't explain how to use a vaporizer when there are two in arm's reach.

I don't know why more "centers" aren't patient owned and operated. Seems like everyone would be happier if the focus was shifted from profit to people. Too bad they keep trying to legislate with an eye on profit as well.

@LikesToEatHisMedicine- check us out at 303organics.org. we have butter available as we're not so much into baking and let the patients make whatever they choose, if that's for them. but anyways, we use 16oz. of sugary frosted sweet leaf trim from upwards of 12 to 16 strains. 16 oz. trim to 16 sticks of butter. it has 2 nicknames- the turbo butter and the angry butter. we like to mix our trim rather than go strain specific only because when you mix em up you get a fully encompassing cannabinoid spectrum that is sure to not let you down. we have full sticks, 8 tablespoons of this day glow green butter for $25/stick. first one is free to make sure it is right for you. 303organics.org.

PS-BUSHMAN HAS NO AFFILIATION WITH 303 ORGANICS, LLC. had to chime in and make that clear. although i don't see anything wrong with he did or said here. aren't these message/comment boards for opinions and comments? people need to relax a bit. and @ shut up!- who are you. you may have ties to 303 caregivers but we are 303 Organics and that's the name bushman was throwing out. be well all.

Justin,

your ratio sounds great, especially if it is good bud...since i've been eating ganja food for a long time, i've had a lot of ganja food made with this potent ratio (a half an ounce per stick of butter is more than the norm); and it was most potent when it was done really slowly, low heat, etc...most importantly, this highly potent food allowed me to function.

but as far as dispensary medibles, I only found one medible -- out of a lot of medibles that were supposed to drop me, if i dared have a crumb -- that I would believe was made with your ratio, though I've heard some hard to believe claims. the medibles just keep getting less potent, as the packaging gets slicker.

and i think it is great that just about any food can be medicated and i love the treats, but for long term use, health bars sound better...

and of course hash food tends to be quite effective when made with a reasonable ratio, but the hash chocolates and the hash tootsie rolls I bought for too much money didn't help my pain, at all. and i understand it costs a lot to use hash in food, but you may as well make it potent, not just hash token taste, if you're going to do it...

if people really used a bud to butter ratio like you're talking about, there'd be a lot more substantial symptom relief and some loyal medible patients.

thanks for that, Justin.

I use a QP of meds in a pot with 8 sticks of butter and have a heath bar recipe that uses 1 cup of butter. 1 of these edibles (2"x2")will knock you out for the day. Super Potent. Have yet to see any Edibles like these.

First, most of the people working the dispensary counters I�ve encountered have been initially very nice and have tried, initially, to make me feel comfortable. I think dispensing and therefore dispensaries are clearly constitutional and are desperately needed, and I am grateful so many people are going out on a limb to help.

But I still miss my caregiver, and I still think many small to mid-size professionals got really screwed by people with more money, which screws the patient ultimately, as their access is often blocked and options are considerably reduced.

And unfortunately, beyond the usual generalization and guiding principle that, "sativas get you up and are for the day, and indicas �couch lock� you and are for the night" (which can be misleading with certain strains), most of the tenders and mgt/owners start getting real fidgety, as soon as another patient shows up or as soon as you start asking too many questions. And this fidgeting often occurs right after being told to take one�s time and not feel rushed.

However, out of the several dozen I�ve frequented, there have been a couple dispensaries (now centers) that have been truly patient and patient-focused; and if they didn�t know the answer to a question, they admitted it and tried to find out and didn�t appear insulted. The one place had a huge waiting room and a huge door to the medicine room, and the patients piled up in the waiting room, while I purchased a lot more than I usually do, because I wasn�t rushed. No repeated knocking from mgt or receptionist to �move things along� allowed me to take a good look at the meds and make the best choices, for me.

In general, I think many of the new �centers� need to REALLY allow a patient to investigate and ask questions, without another patient standing on their heels or without getting conflicting signals/body language (like the stink eye) from the tender, receptionist, mgr, owner, etc�

And most importantly, can somebody PLEASE start making some affordable, highly potent medibles -- by truly using bud (and the rare, sparkling-diamond trim)�the only effective medible I�ve found -- after frequenting several dozen dispensaries and eating way more than 50 different edibles and blowing way too much money -- was a greek pastry that was floating around Ned a while back, before the particular dispensary was forced out by Constitution Haters and Constitution Saboteurs.

Oh, and please make certain the patient can see the scale reading, and please make certain to leave out the lawn clippings and non-essential lumber, unless that�s what you�re selling�the leaf would be better for low potency medibles�

2: You are a know-it-all.

Before I visit a collective I always call and ask what's on the menu so I can look it up before hand. So when I show up and know more about the product than the bud tenders I guess I am a know it all.

3: The line behind you isn't getting any shorter.

I don't even notice anyone else in the room and could careless if it's a mile long. Odds are if it's long I've waited my turn.

4: You only come in for the freebies/You ask for the "hook-up.

If you don't give me the hookup I can call 5 other collectives that will. So either hook it up or you'll find your customers going else where.

"This is an actual business with an actual business plan, not some dude selling pot out of his basement."

Really? I thought it was about being compassionate? When did this become about greed?

To the writer, if I knew any of the bud tenders you spoke too I would never visit their store. And to the writer I will never read another one of your offensive articles again.

they, truth and steph, came at me and i just responded and defended. i did not have this intent with my original post. i was only agreeing with other posters and what they wrote about 'budtenders' and commenting on releaf complaining about the amount some people purchase. if its a patient in need and you can help you shouldn't complain. maybe that's all that patient needed or their last dollars and wanted to make sure they got the right product for their particular ailments and said last dollars. so relax all. shit, this was not my intent. i guess i offended some 'budtenders' out there. my apologies.

Shut up!

As someone associated with 303 Caregivers, I'd respectfully ask that you quit being such a dick to people while associating yourself in any way with us on this very public message board, Bushman. You aren't doing anyone any favors acting like you are acting.

To the poster above: bushman does not represent us or how we treat our patients at all.

@truth.ser, er clown-i am not associated with them fellers. did you notice how many times in my original post i said they and their not me and mine? or are you just as retarded as steph from releaf? i just know a former patient of theirs that they got up and growing for herself and turned her loose once she was comfortable with doing it. and after reading a couple of post here i figured i'd throw their name out. and where the fuck did you get 'homophobic' from? please explain because that i am not. sure seems to me that yer the 'clown' here. it's one thing to be able to read but you also have to be able to understand what yer reading. how you got yer post from any of my post shall remain a mystery since there is no possible explanation for what you wrote, except for being retarded. keep bringing it clowns. i gots more.

Wow bushman, is everyone at 303 organics as rude and abrasive as you? I know they are the last place i'd go to now, especially if you're the type of ass they have advertising their services. I'm sure there's plenty of caregiver groups not represented by a homophobic message board troll.

for someone who thinks this article "blows", you sure have spent a lot of your time following up on it.... Get a life, clown.

The Releaf Center says:We don't hate any of our patients, but this cracked me up.Can't believe you didn't get "the guy who smells every jar twice then buys a half gram." One of my favorites! ;)

so releaf, are you here to actually help patients or just for the coin? i think with the quoted post above you answered that question, albeit answered wrong. if you were here for the right reasons it wouldn't matter the amount purchased. and after a brief textual battle with yer girl steph i also now know yer hiring standards can't be that high.

so shop at releaf if you want to get trash talked if you don't purchase the right amount from staff who are clearly uneducated. thanks for nothing a hole.

I know I am not alone in saying I have had several private caregivers who were as unreliable as shit and sometimes had good product and sometimes had yes, SHIT. At least with a few good dispensaries in town I go at my convenience, I have a large selection and I can pay by credit card.

Hey, Bushman....

Unfortunately, some dispensaries do hire beautiful women to be product spoke models rather than helpful, informative professionals. Personally, as an intelligent AND attractive female dispensary employee, I take offense to your generalization. As some female self proclaimed "budtenders" behind the counter may have that vacant gaze behind too much mascara, there are those few out there (such as myself) with a 3.85 GPA and much more than common sense behind a pretty face. The best rule of thumb: Stay away from stereotypes and general statements and take people on an individual basis.

Dispensaries and budtenders are a joke. It seems as if all of the people who SHOULD NOT own dispensaries or grow the medicine, are the ones doing it. I've never seen so much junk in Colorado as I have the last year.

I had a AWESOME caregiver
I had a AWESOME caregiver

Then he went on Channel 9 and got thrown under the bus by bad reporting.

I used to get A+ Sour D and I.S.S. He would also have new strains every so often..some worked and some didn't.

Now that I have to go to the dispenses to get meds it's kinda sad. ALOT of the places I have been have B grade at best meds,hash,tinc, and buter.

Maybe the market will pick up with alot of places closing their doors..I hope so.

Like any good resturant you have to look around to find thebest of the best..or get a good referal.

To DIRKLE and other frustrated patients:

I havent seen "top shelf" bud at a dispensary that deserved the classification in over a year. Private family caregiver here, lab test in top 5%...

Advice for finding private caregiver: check sites like www.shabong.com, www.vendormaps.com, etc. The small providers are out there looking for you too.

As for the article... I was in a dispensary last week, showed me a jar they said was Durban Poison. LOL It is one of my specialties... and in NO WAY was what they showed me DP. It was Juicy Fruit, or something along those lines.

Also... STRINGY SATIVA?? LMAO!! If you know what you are doing, and grow it in the RIGHT conditions, none of your bud should turn out stringy!! These just reinforce the fact that so many of these dispensary owners and centers have NO IDEA what they are working with. And yes... the commenter was right when they said COLORADO LEGISLATURE has pretty much outlawed all of the cannabis PROFESSIONALS.

and who came up with bud tender? shits gay. i don't call the person at the alcohol bar beer tender or liquor tender. i even heard someone calls the girls bud tendresses. what kinda shit is that? most of em are clowns who know nothing about cannabis except that it's cannabis and will get you high. just look at most, i say most of these jokers and we wonder why we can't be taken seriously by people who don't understand this. so if you call yerself a budtender, after yer done calling yerself that, pull yer head out of yer bum and read up on what yer doing. maybe someday you could actually help somebody. this article blows.
