Budtending Is a Real and Important Job
Budtenders working in weed dispensaries have a lot of influence over their customers, especially those who aren’t sure what they need, want or are looking for.
Thankfully, most budtenders are knowledgeable and very helpful.
While many started off behind the counters when the industry was still operating in the so-called “legal gray” area, they have learned on, and off, the job.
One young woman told LA Weekly that with widespread legalization, budtending has become a job to be taken seriously.
Black Domina (Hybrid)
Black Domina is a powerful smoke. The resinous buds range from a harsh peppery scent to the dark smell of blackberries. Not intended for the sweet tooth, Black Domina buds taste smoky and spicy, leaving some tokers wondering if the pipe contains hashish along with the weed. It embodies the indica high, with overpowering body effects. This strain is a great buzz for a day off or a nightcap when no serious work lies ahead. This multiple cross is basically the result of stacking four of Sensi's heaviest selected indicas in one hybrid: the Afghani SA, the Ortega hybrid developed in Canada, and a combination of the Hash Plant and the famed Northern Lights, both of which have origins in the U.S. Pacific Northwest.

Purple Urkle (Indica)
Purple Urkle comes from Mendo Purps pheno and is native to the notorious green triangle in northern California. It is characterized by unusually long orange hairs covering small, dense, purple nugs when properly grown and harvested.

Nevada’s On-Again, Off-Again Marijuana Sales Back On
RENO, Nev. (AP) — Nevada regulators reaffirmed their intentions Friday to issue licenses necessary for retailers to begin selling pot for recreational use on July 1 while complying with a court order in a lawsuit filed by alcohol wholesalers who want a piece of the pot distribution business.
The retail licensees could include as many as 25 medical dispensaries in the Las Vegas area and four others in Reno that already have medical retail licenses, as long as they adhere to packaging requirements in an emergency regulation to be adopted Monday, state Department of Taxation spokeswoman Stephanie Klapstein said.
The fate of the recreational program has been in limbo since a Carson City judge ruled Tuesday that the ballot measure voters approved requires that alcohol wholesalers have exclusive rights to pot distribution licenses for 18 months.
Better Business Bureau Exposing Fake Online Weed Companies
The Better Business Bureau (BBB), founded in 1912 to provide consumer protection and industry self-regulation, was a reaction to “medical quackery and the promotion of nostrums and worthless drugs,” according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI).
So here we are, 105 years later, and the BBB has gone back to its original motivating objective.
Their investigation found that the fake companies claimed to be selling a large variety of substances like bath salts and “research chemicals,” as well as marijuana products.
They checked out the business addresses, which didn’t compute and their hyperlinks led to false addresses.
