At the Temescal Wellness cannabis dispensaries in Massachusetts, our budtenders are top-of-the-line. We understand that each of our customers is unique, with different needs and varying levels of experience when it comes to cannabis consumption.

That’s why we make it a point to train our budtenders thoroughly so they can be equipped with the education and expertise you desire when shopping for cannabis products at your local MA dispensary.

Our Unique Approach To Training Employees

All of our Temescal Wellness new hires are properly trained before working directly with customers, and the training they experience does set us apart from other MA dispensaries. To start, all employees undergo the Responsible Vendor Training (RVT) certification program taught by Marijuana Handlers, following the guidelines outlined by the CCC. This includes those who will work with recreational cannabis customers, not just employees who will work behind the medical cannabis counter. 

All employees receive cannabis product training consistently throughout their time at Temescal Wellness, It’s not just foundational training at the start of their employment. Aside from the annual training required by the CCC under the RVT program, and the overall training requirements that need to be met, we create and distribute weekly decks that outline and educate on any promotions and new products arriving at the retail locations. We also require experienced budtenders to work the medical cannabis counter. We take our role in supporting our medical marijuana patients very seriously and ensure any questions our medical guests may have are answered by an experienced budtender. We are also taking steps to increase the number of bi-linugual service associates we have at each location to further support each guest that walks through our doors. 

Not only do we want to provide customers with the best budtenders who are educated on the products, but we want you to interact with genuine, good people. Inclusivity training is one way we do this. It’s important for us to employ a diversified staff who is understanding and compassionate; this is how we’ve been able to create an environment where our employees and customers feel welcomed in our Massachusetts dispensary locations. 

Perks Don’t Hurt!

Let’s be honest. Sometimes “learning by doing” is the best way to become an expert on the subject, and that is something our Massachusetts budtenders know a thing or two about. We encourage our staff to try different products so when making recommendations or answering questions, they can speak from personal experience and share reactions given by their co-workers. For this reason, we offer a very generous employee discount of 40% off all cannabis. 

Another major perk we provide to show our gratitude is closing on 4/20. You heard that right - we’re closed on 4/20. Don’t worry, our customers are taken care of. We’re open daily leading up to the big day, and make it worth your while coming in early with ridiculous deals and bundles throughout the month. 4/20 is bananas at all MA dispensaries, and many employees find themselves stressed out and burnt out (and not in a good way). We chose not to put our staff through that chaos, and to be honest, our customers don’t need it either! Join us in actually enjoying the day, not fighting a crowd, and visit us any day of the week before 4/20. You check out our website menus for a heads-up on the deals we’re offering this year.

I Visited Temescal Wellness of Framingham, Hudson, and Pittsfield Massachusetts. Here’s a recap of my experience.

All reviews are true and genuine! You might be wondering why we even mention that, but believe it or not, many MA recreational and medical dispensaries buy positive reviews and ratings. That is a big NO for us. To ensure we are receiving authentic reviews from real customers, and keeping our staff motivated to always provide the best service, we reward our employees for getting good reviews with prizes, giftcards, swag, and very very discounted  products. (And if you’re wondering why we just don’t give away the weed,  we stay in compliance with CCC rules and cannot give out free products.) And lastly, we run company-wide challenges to get a set amount of 5-star reviews in a single month — who doesn’t love a little friendly competition? 

We encourage our customers and potential new customers to take a look at our reviews for each of our dispensary locations in Framingham, Hudson, or Pittsfield. You can even check out a few blogs about the customer experience at our Temescal Wellness dispensaries. We’re really proud of the team we’ve created here, and hope you all visit to see for yourself.
