The pursuit of cannabis knowledge is a journey. To become a true master of a specific area (or a cross section of them all) requires passion and dedication.

Through a series of skills-based and knowledge-testing events, as well as through digital competitions, Canada’s budtender community will be able to demonstrate their expertise in cultivar characteristics and histories, product categories and formats, exceptional customer service, and must also showcase how they contribute to the community and culture.


“We wouldn’t be where we are today as an industry, and as a company, without the cannabis advocates who fought to break boundaries and challenge perceptions,”

Terry Booth CEO
