Knowing what to expect when you visit a dispensary can feel downright overwhelming. Terpenes? The endocannabinoid system? Sometimes it can feel like you need to speak a second language just to fit in. Thankfully, that’s why budtenders like Randi Mizer — a longtime staffer at The Source+ in Reno, Nevada — exist. As someone who knows just how important it is for canna-curious customers to feel empowered to ask questions, Mizer wants to help every potential dispensary customer feel ready to take that all-important first step. Whether discussing how achieving a mental and physical state of “chill” through cannabis is not a one-size-fits-all proposition or sharing her favorite products to recommend, Mizer’s expertise and empathy made her the perfect choice for our first “Ask a Budtender” installment.
