What Makes a CBD Kratom Doyen?




1.) the most respected or prominent person in a particular field.


The world of cannabis encompasses so much, and as society continues to embrace its potential wellness benefits, there is more to explore and understand as you develop your own routine. With over 100 cannabinoids in the hemp plant, as well as other, natural options like Kava, Kratom, and Amanita, finding the right product can be an overwhelming experience. It’s important to find experts who can provide guidance and help you chart your course. At CBD Kratom, our stores provide a team of trained, educated experts called Doyens, ready to help you understand your needs, and options.

What is a Doyen?

A Doyen is an expert, prominent and respected in their field. This comes from dedication, education, and a deeper understanding of our products and customers. Because our team members receive specialized training and develop deep product knowledge, they are not just Sales Associates. The term Doyen better reflects their expertise in the fields of cannabis and kratom. A Doyen is more than just a budtender, or cashier; they are compassionate experts devoted to helping each individual customer understand their options so they can develop the right approach to their personal wellness routine, whether it’s CBD, Kava, Amanita, Kratom, or a blend of products to meet their goals. Doyens possess empathy, and focus. They are responsible, positive, and love a good challenge.

Not all Dispensaries are the same.

We do more than train; we teach. We recognize that just as people have different needs, and personalities, they also have different approaches to learning. We include all four learning modalities in the training program to best serve the learning styles of all team members, whether it’s through a visual, written, auditory or a kinesthetic (experiential) approach.

The training and education are designed to go beyond products, store upkeep and transactions to ensure a deeper understanding of the material, as well as the practical application of the knowledge. It’s not enough to know what each of the cannabinoids, or Kratom strains are; our Doyens understand how they might potentially benefit the individual, how they work with other cannabinoids, and most importantly, how they can work within one’s life and wellness routine. Our robust training and education program equips our Doyens with the tools and knowledge to provide personal, one-on-one attention to help customers find the products to best suit their unique needs.


Finding the human connection.

At the core of every product we carry is the person it’s helping. That’s why our Doyens are so dedicated to learning how to help customers find the right products for their wellness goals. Knowing the products is key, but understanding our customers is of the utmost importance. Our new Doyens run scenarios, role play, and shadow more experienced Doyens, all to gain a deeper insight into how they can better assist the customer.
