The Certified Difference

Tired of sifting through a seemingly endless sea of products, wondering which one might work best for you? Make one visit to aFairwinds Certified store, and you’ll experience the difference. When you chat with a Fairwinds Certified budtender, you’re guaranteed to be speaking with someone who’s informed, compassionate, and willing to work with you to find the best possible products to meet your needs.


To be part of our Fairwinds Certified family of stores, a shop must have five or more Certified budtenders; every Fairwinds Certified budtender has completed our thorough Budtender Empowerment training program. After watching our 18-course video series, which covers basic Cannabis 101 information as well as detailed insight into the science behind all Fairwinds products, each budtender must pass a 50-question exam with a score of 84% or higher. If your budtender has a Fairwinds Certified pin, you can rest assured that they will be able to recommend the best Fairwinds products for you with real confidence.


Since our start in 2015, we have been dedicated to providing high quality, truly science-backed cannabis wellness products. With the launch of our Fairwinds Certification program in 2019, our goal has been to empower the budtenders of Washington – and by extension, the wonderful customers who choose our products every day. Exceptional customer service is part of the Fairwinds difference, and we’re honored to have you along for the ride.
