Budtenders influence consumer decisions as much as 70% of the time

52% of budtenders say swag impacts brand recommendations

Budtenders value brands that facilitate their work by providing a continuous flow of information

In the ever-dynamic cannabis industry, with its overwhelming range of products and evolving brand offerings, even seasoned store employees require up-to-date knowledge, ongoing engagement, and incentives to keep informed and motivated. Brands that fail to provide this, will never stay “top of mind” of their main purchase influencers, Budtenders.
