The Green Solution’s Retail Associate Shelton Howard Takes Budtender of the Year at the 2016 Cannabis Business Awards

Congratulations Shelton!!!

–Carlos Herbert Hernandez

Congratulations to Shelton Howard, who just won Budtender of the Year at the Cannabis Business Awards! We’re proud to call Shelton a TGS family member, and grateful for the success his talent brings to our 20th Avenue location in Edgewater.

The Cannabis Business Awards were held at the Sheraton Hotel this Wednesday to a sold-out crowd. Presented to cannabis industry businesses, individuals, and organizations in both medical and recreational sectors, as well as ancillary industries, Shelton earned this award through pure gumption. As an entrepreneurship student at the UC Denver Business School, his ability to connect his academic pursuits with his marijuana professionalism led him to take this democratic award process by storm since the nominee panel was made purely of industry patients and connoisseurs.

Loved by his colleagues and customers alike, Shelton’s “” demeanor and “super knowledgeable” skills behind and in front of the counter consistently makes guests comfortable and makes him a Colorado industry favorite.

Take note, fellow ‘tenders! Shelton’s not just a testament to what great budtending is all about, but a testament to navigating this rapidly-growing industry while juggling student responsibilities at the same time. We can’t wait to see how Shelton will use his skills and accolades to do great things for TGS and the entire industry!
