About Budtenders Club
Budtenders Club Mission and Vision

Budtenders are at the heart of everything that Budtenders Club does. We’re changing the profession by giving budtenders and dispensary employees access to other professionals, powerful tools, and free educational content. Budtenders Club was founded in 2019 by Brian “Offenbonger” Offenberger. Since then, we’re proudly building a national association that’s becoming a driving force in the cannabis industry.

“Budtenders Club exists to help budtenders have better careers with more opportunities in the cannabis industry.”

We work  to strengthen opportunities for budtenders and advocate for what matters most to them – with a focus on networking, career development, education, and fun! Advocating for budtenders is at the heart of our mission It’s part of what we do from our national office in Arizona. If you are a budtender or dispensary employee, join us. It’s free.

We Live How You Live

Budtenders Club is made possible thanks to the incredible budtenders who have joined our Club, and cannabis brands who support our cause. We are strong believers in the power of community.

Why Are We Doing This?

Because budtenders matter.

Every profession has a trade association. We are the association for budtenders.

Cannabis brands and dispensaries can’t exist without budtenders. Budtenders are the most critical component in the sales cycle. They drive product sales. They educate patients and recreational consumers. They serve customers.

Yet budtenders often didn’t have a voice at the table the cannabis industry. They were underappreciated, undervalued, and taken for granted. We aim to change that.
