Choosing Your Licensed Producer
Your Licensed Producer (LP) is who you will buy your product from. Each producer has their own pros and your Bud Genius will be able to help you choose one that is a good fit based on your needs.
A few things to consider when choosing your Licensed Producer are:
- Quality of Product
- Customer Experience
- Consistency in Medications
There are several methods to consume your medicine. Your physician may have directed you to consume in a specific way, or you may want to explore what works best for you.
