Budtender Interview #6 - Heather
Budtender | Washington
What state you work in?: Washington
How long have you been a Budtender? 6 months
Retail, Medical or Both? Retail
How did you get into the Industry? The perfect mixture of knowledge and personality.
What is your favorite aspect of being a Budtender? The look of wonder on people’s faces as they peruse our unique boutique ;) Many people can’t imagine being able to go into a store and legally buy weed!
The funniest moment you have had at work, with a customer or job related? I am fortunate enough to work in a store that’s run by some of the funniest people I know! We’re always laughing in there!
Most random question somebody has asked you about cannabis? “Which one is going to make me horny?!”
Favorite Strain and why?: Currently my favorite strain is UW Black. I prefer Indica dominant strains, even for daytime use, and this one has such a captivating sweet smell to it. It has a pretty interesting history in the Seattle area as well, if you can get someone to tell you ;)
Do you like edibles? If so, what is your favorite and why? In theory, I love them! I face the same problem many habitual tokers face; edibles aren’t always potent enough. But the right 150MG treat will put me at such an enjoyable level- one that’s completely different from a smoking high- sometimes the trial & error testing is worth it.
Advice for others wanting to work in the Industry? Read, read, read! My favorite thing to do is read the articles and strain reviews on Leafly!
Do you have an Instagram? If so, what is your user name? Of course! @SalaciousStoner
Is there anything you would like to see improve in the industry? Integrity in grow operations, more ethical regulations on additives and procedures. A marijuana control board to govern this new market rather than the liquor control board; this would lead to lower taxes (and lower weed prices!!)
What are the best perks about your job? I work in a weed store, that’s a perk on its own!
Do you use cannabis medically? While I don’t have a medical card, naturally, I use marijuana for an array of different aliments.
What is your favorite movie? Either Step Brothers or the Avengers ;P
What is your favorite hobby? Making money! $$ <3
What is the #1 thing you are most grateful for? That I am an able-bodied, hard-working, mufuh, who gets the opportunity every day to make a positive impact on her community.
