Canada’s Top Budtender Competition

Canada’s first Top Budtender Competition will be held this June and hosted by Aurora. As the front line for the cannabis industry, budtenders are the people who are responsible for removing the stigma and professionalizing our industry.

Applications must be submitted by June 1.

The Competition will include:

  • A timed trial trivia on 6 different product categories
  • Mystery box challenge, testing budtenders’ ability to identify strains and terpenes, and evaluate the skills new consumers seek (e.g. how to roll a joint)
  • Analysis of each budtender’s contribution to cannabis culture, locally
  • Top 10 finalists will be evaluated on customer service and cannabis education during a secret mystery shop

Registration for this first-of-its-kind competition is available on Aurora’s new digital budtender community hub, Aurora Pro – an online service, designed to help budtenders connect with each other across the country and improve their own knowledge by continuing to learn about new products and brands.
