Budtender of the Month: Fred Voglesong, The Mint of Kalamazoo

What are your favorite Detroit Edibles and/or Cannalicious Labs products and why?


“That would definitely be the Bee Sting Honey and the Goodnight Honey. I just love them both so much. I’m a big tea drinker and some of the Goodnight Honey and chrysanthemum tea for me is just amazing. I really like the customization of these two products. If I have a customer that is hesitant about getting gummies or something that isn’t a finite dose, this is a phenomenal product to have so you can customize your doseage very easily and on the fly.”


If you could dispel one myth or stigma about cannabis use, what would it be and why?


“That one’s easy, that it makes you forgetful. I never forget to smoke (laughing ensues). I forget like a lot of other stuff, ya know? But I did that before I started smoking pot soo...whose to say?”


As a budtender, how do you stay informed of the latest products and trends in the cannabis industry?


“That comes from a couple different channels. Our management is really proficient at letting us know what new products are coming into the store, so that we have a chance to at least Google search them and have some semblance of knowledge so when the product hits the floor I have something to give the customer. I try to keep my eye on what other dispensaries are doing, I know there are dispensaries that have other products that we don’t. And customers also will keep you very informed as to what else is out there and what their demands are.”


What makes the experience at The Mint unique?


“It comes down to three founding principles. You got the good tunes, you got the good vibes, and you got the good deals. Those three pillars are what makes The Mint that much better than all of our competitors. And of course the dollar ATM fee. The cheapest one in the entire county.”
