Know Before You Go: What To Ask Your Budtender at Oasis

July 1, 2019

What to ask your budtender at Oasis Cannabis Superstore.

Budtenders are trained to find the strain varieties, edibles, and concentrates that best suit your needs. An adept budtender will not only know the specifics of every product in the dispensary, he’ll recommend products based on a series of tailored questions. For the best experience, ask you budtender these five questions.


1. With what methods can I consume cannabis?

Today, there are several methods you can use to consume cannabis. Smoking marijuana flower is perhaps the most popular, but there are edibles, beverages, topicals, capsules, and more. It’s a good idea to research which method you’d like to choose or come prepared with questions about various consumption options so your budtender can guide you. Keep in mind that not all products are available in every variety, so just ask if you’re unsure.


2. Can I use cannabis as medicine?

The way you decide to use cannabis, and the type of cannabis you use, will be contingent on the experience you want to have. For example, someone who needs relief from pain may benefit way more from using an infused cream or ointment than they would from simply smoking flower. Similarly, someone hoping to manage anxiety may find a CBD-rich tincture much more effective than a dab of high THC resin. If you plan to use cannabis as medicine, work with a physician who specializes in prescribing medical marijuana. Then, talk to your budtender. She may have some additional ideas or products choices you hadn’t considered.


3. Is cannabis always psychoactive?

It’s no secret that marijuana can affect your mental and physical state in very different ways depending on product type, dosage, and consumption method. Add tolerance to the equation, and these variables change even more. Discussing tolerance with your budtender is critical in finding the right products and dosage for you. Some products are non-intoxicating (those with high concentrations of CBD) while others have pronounced psychotropic effects. Tell your budtender what kind of experience you’re looking for so he can pick the right products for you.


4. How long will I feel the effects?

This compliments question three in determining dosage and consumption methods. For example, dabbing typically provides a quick and intense experience compared to edibles. Edibles take a while to kick in but their effects may last for hours or even days. Thinking about how you intend to use cannabis is important and will help determine both the products and consumption methods you discuss with your budtender.


5. How can I be discreet?

Cannabis smoke and vapor may be bothersome to some so it’s always important to consider how your cannabis use will affect those around you. If you plan to use cannabis around those who do not partake, tell your budtender. He can guide you to products that can be used anywhere. Edibles, topicals, sublinguals, and transdermal, are just a few examples of products that can be used discreetly.
