A Day in the Life of a Monko Budtender: Serving the DC Cannabis Community

Morning Preparations

As a budtender at Monko, my day starts early. I arrive at our cannabis dispensary in Logan Circle around 8 AM, an hour before we open. The first order of business is to review our inventory and ensure all products are properly stocked and labeled.

Opening Shop

At 9 AM, we open our doors to eager customers. Many are regulars who appreciate our knowledgeable staff and wide selection of products. Throughout the morning, I assist customers in finding the perfect strain or product for their needs, whether they’re seeking relief from chronic pain or looking to unwind after a long day.

Lunchtime Rush

The lunch hour is always busy, with professionals from nearby offices stopping by to pick up their orders. Our efficient marijuana delivery service is a hit with those who can’t make it to the store. I spend this time coordinating with our delivery drivers to ensure all orders are accurate and on time.

Afternoon Education

In the afternoon, I lead a small educational session for new customers, explaining:

  • Different cannabis strains and their effects
  • Proper dosing for edibles
  • Safe consumption practices

These sessions are crucial in promoting responsible use and building trust with our community.

Evening Wind-Down

As the day comes to a close, I assist with inventory counts and prepare for the next day. Before leaving, I often chat with my colleagues about new products or industry news, always looking to expand my knowledge to better serve our customers.

Working at Monko is more than just a job; it’s an opportunity to be part of the growing cannabis industry and to help people improve their quality of life. Whether you’re in Shaw, Bloomingdale, NoMa, or Mt Vernon Triangle, we’re here to provide top-notch service and products to the DC cannabis community.
