Whether you’re an aspiring budtender or want to be your own budtender, tune into Dale Sky Jones on Cannabiziac’s Book of the Month virtual chat 7 p.m. EST, Wed., Feb. 28, 2024.
Dale is Executive Chancellor of Oaksterdam University (OU) and co-author of The Budtender’s Guide: A Reference Manual for Cannabis Consumers and Dispensary Professionals. She’ll talk about how to navigate the constantly changing landscape of cannabis varieties, products and legalization policies. She’ll also discuss the chemistry of cannabis, and how people can help dispensary patients and customers — or themselves — to read product labels to get the effects they desire safely and consistently.
Along with the in-depth book discussion, the three-hour online event includes author insights, networking opportunities, time for questions and giveaways. The cost is $15 for non-members, free for Cannabiziac members.
The Budtender’s Guide was published by Oaksterdam Publishing as an ebook in 2022 and a print edition in 2023. An essential addition to any dispensary or cannabis consumer’s library, it is written and peer-reviewed by the world renowned faculty of Oaksterdam. OU faculty comprises professionals, academics, and subject matter experts who have taught more than 80,000 alumni from 110 countries, many of whom have become successful business owners and industry leaders as the cannabis industry continues to grow.
The Budtender’s Guide serves as an optional textbook to Oaksterdam courses, including our Budtending Certification Course.
