How long have you been working at Burb?
It's been just over a year since I was first brought onto the team here at burb.
What is your favourite part?
I would have to say one of the highlights for me is the people who come in to shop with us. It is such a contrast to working in any other industry. These customers are just as interested in the product as I am, and it leads to some amazing conversations and connections that I've never experienced anywhere else.
What is your favourite strain(s)?
There are so many to choose from... Point Break, Macslurry, Peanut Butter Mac, Blue Dream. I can keep going haha. I'm not picky!
Do you have any funny weed stories?
Well, long story short: One time at a Kid Cudi concert I greened out and sat against a garbage can in a park eating a Hot Dog Poutine because I couldn't walk or talk. Yes, that is fries, cheese, and sliced hot dogs. Against a trash can. Picture that. I followed that up with a slice of pizza, smoked another doobie, and made it back to the stage in time for "Mr. Rager." Good times.
How has weed positively affected you?
It's helped in so many ways. I started smoking when I was about 20. At first it was about smoking to listen to music, watch movies, see a concert, etc. but as I started to grow more passionate about it, I saw it as so much more than what I was using it for.
In the almost 10 years that I have been a consumer, I have seen it help me tremendously with my career, my fitness, my mental health, my artistic side, and so much more. Thank you ganja!!
