First-time purchasers should be put at ease by the guidance offered in this useful, informative class from the knowledgeable Nurse Heather. Good points for both newbies and veteran dispensary-goers. She didn't mention researching what strains are commonly used for one's particular condition before visiting a dispensary - I think this is important to avoid a possible bias or "guess" by the budtender. In my experience, a lot of budtenders (can we please get a more accurate description for them?) do not have adequate knowledge to help patients, and this is a big problem. Many of them don't even know what terpenes are. Often, they can't answer my questions or they actually recommend something that is not right for me at all. Example: When a dispensary was out of the strain I needed, a budtender steered me toward "something very similar" that I found out later actually had NONE of the terpene profile I needed (good thing I didn't buy it). So it was encouraging to hear Heather say some dispensaries are getting medical personnel on staff. I'd also like to see every dispensary eventually have a computer dedicated for patients/staff to research terpene profiles and cannabinoid content of particular strains/cultivars, so that people could make more targeted decisions. Also, better training (I'd like to see eventual certification) for dispensary workers is definitely in order.
