How Budr Bloomed
Meet Our Founders
Carl comes from the cannabis industry. Prior to starting Budr, he oversaw three medical dispensaries in Connecticut and saw firsthand the magical healing properties that cannabis had on patients with illnesses such as PTSD, cancer, epilepsy, and more. His passion drove him to own his own dispensary.
Derrick came from the home healthcare industry, where he spent 15 years providing services to elderly and disabled patients. He always had a desire to offer a product that would help people the way his services did.
Both Carl and Derrick share a goal of wanting to give back to their communities.
Together, they’ve been in the cannabis industry for over 10 years and when Connecticut legalized marijuana for adult-use, they saw the opportunity to combine their passions. And that’s how Budr bloomed.
Budr believes in the power of community and recognizes the importance of social equity in the Connecticut marijuana marketplace. It’s a philosophy that we bring to all of our current and future locations.
BUDr Is Better
Budr puts our consumers first. We’ll always sell products that align with your needs and desires. We strive to provide an elevated retail experience that goes far beyond other cannabis dispensaries, treating each customer as an honored guest, with an experience tailored to fit your needs.
We’re a diverse, socially conscious dispensary dedicated to engaging directly with the communities we serve. We will always partner with people and vendors that share our values. We’re here to improve health, happiness, and comfort. That’s what the Budr difference is all about.
Our Core Values
Budr’s mission is to safely provide access to cannabis with the best possible consumer experience, serve individuals and the community, and build a better society from the ground up through our dispensary.
We strive to serve individuals and the community all while building a better society from the ground up through cannabis. Our plan is to open five stores in Connecticut by 2025. Beyond our physical growth plans, we’ll continue to educate our customers, no matter where we are. The more our customers know, the better their experience.
