Updated: Sep 7, 2022

As cannabis becomes more and more mainstream, people are starting to ask questions about how it should be consumed and what is appropriate etiquette. One question that has been on a lot of people's minds lately is whether or not you should tip your budtender.

Tipping your budtender is a great way to show your appreciation for their help in choosing the right products and strains for you. In this article, we will discuss the reasons why you should tip your budtender. Keep reading to learn more.

Why Should You Tip Your Budtender?

If you've ever been to a dispensary, you know that there's a whole bunch of people behind the scenes who make your visit possible. There's the budtender who helps you pick out the right strain, the growers who cultivate the bud, and the scientists who develop new products. But one of the most important members of the team is often overlooked, the budtender tip jar. So why should you tip your budtender? Here are some reasons why you should tip your budtender:

  • A way to show your appreciation.

When it comes to deciding whether or not to tip your budtender, there is no right or wrong answer. It ultimately comes down to personal preference and how you feel about the service you received. However, many people do choose to tip their budtenders as a way of showing appreciation for the help they received in finding the perfect strain or product for their needs. If you're unsure about whether or not to tip, simply ask your budtender if they accept tips most will be more than happy to let you know.

  • A way to ensure great service.

In addition to showing your appreciation, tipping your budtender is also a great way to ensure that you receive great service the next time you visit the dispensary. Budtenders who are known for providing excellent customer service often receive larger tips, which incentivizes them to continue providing great service. So if you're looking for a way to guarantee great service on your next visit, consider leaving a tip.

  • A way to show your support.

The cannabis industry is still relatively new, which means that it doesn't have the same level of financial stability as other industries. This can make it difficult for dispensary employees to earn a livable wage, so tipping your budtender is a great way to show your support for their hard work. By tipping, you are helping to ensure that they can continue doing what they love and providing excellent customer service.

  • Your budtender is your guide to the world of cannabis.

Your budtender is the person who you rely on to help you find the right products and strains for your needs. They are your guide through the sometimes-overwhelming world of cannabis, and they deserve to be compensated for their knowledge and expertise.

  • It helps ensure quality service.

Think about it this way, if you were working in a customer-facing role and someone gave you a tip, wouldn't you be more likely to go above and beyond to provide them with excellent service? The same principle applies to budtenders. When you tip your budtender, you are helping to ensure that they will provide quality service not just to you, but to all of their customers.

  • It helps the dispensary.

Dispensaries are often small businesses that rely on the income from tips to help cover operational costs. When you tip your budtender, you're not just helping them, you're also helping the dispensary. Dispensaries often have strict budgets that they need to stick to, which can make it difficult for them to provide their employees with fair wages. Tipping your budtender is a great way to help the dispensary stay afloat and ensure that its employees are being compensated fairly.

  • It's good karma.

When you're in a dispensary, it's important to remember that you're not the only one who is there to purchase cannabis. Many people rely on the sale of cannabis to make a living. This includes budtenders, growers, and scientists. By tipping your budtender, you're not only showing appreciation for their help, but you're also supporting the industry as a whole. In other words, it's good karma.

There are many reasons why tipping your budtender is a good idea and we've provided some reasons in this article. Tipping your budtender not only does it show your appreciation for their hard work, but also encourages them to provide great service and helps the dispensary as a whole. If you’re looking for a great cannabis experience, be sure to tip your budtender. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to give us a call today, we would be happy to help you get started.
