But please, don’t tell me about your blog or your podcast, because I’m not interested in any of that crap
They say that everyone’s a critic, and speaking as a budtender in a dispensary, I must agree with that. Because of the internet and social media platforms, everyone thinks that they are an expert, too. It really irritates me. Let’s take a look at art critics. There is nothing more subjective than art, so someone giving me their expert opinion on a painting is meaningless. I can look at the painting myself and decide what I think about it, I don’t need an expert for that. The same thing is true of cannabis critics, and people that think they have an expert opinion that means more than anyone else’s opinion. I don’t need to understand the botanical lineage of the cannabis strain I’m smoking, I just want it to taste good and get me stoned! Keep your college university knowledge and your long-winded essays to yourself, and just let me know if there is a strain of cannabis I should try out. I always listen to people’s opinions about cannabis, just not when they have the attitude of “educating” me about it. I don’t need education, I just want to smoke the best cannabis the world has to offer. That means I’m not a cannabis critic, but a cannabis fan! I’m a fanatic about it, and love meeting other people who smoke cannabis. But please, don’t tell me about your blog or your podcast, because I’m not interested in any of that crap. On the other hand, if there is a really terrible blend or strain of cannabis that is making the rounds, it is good to be warned about it.
