Meet Your Budtender: Bloom Cannabis Club

. July 1, 2016.

Name: Rebecca Trotman 
Dispensary: Bloom

What’s you favorite Product? Bloom’s incredibly clean and terpy concentrates. 

What do you do when you’re not budtending? On the rare occasion that I’m not at work, I’m researching the newest clinical data pertaining to cannabis medication. When I’m exhausted from reading I’ll usually get sucked into a great book or an MMO/FPS game. 

Favorite local munchies: Biercamp, Bubble Island and Frita Batidos!  

Sage budtender advice? Always clean your piece, and if it’s a water pipe, add a drop of peppermint oil. 

How did you get into the business? I am a two-time cancer survivor and was formerly a special needs teacher for about a decade. After seeing how much a plant can change lives, and how much misinformation was being spread about it, I decided it was time for a career change. 

What’s one misconception people have about working with MMJ? People often say that I have the best job in the world. And they are completely right, but not for the reason people might think. Being high all day and pushing whatever bud has the best mark-up is the sign of poor budtending skills. People who come to Bloom get an education. Anyone can sell weed, it takes an educated professional to change lives. This is not an easy job to do exceedingly well.
