Budtender Spotlight: Brittany

Name: Brittany

img_9850

From: Vancouver, Washington – and a graduate of Skyview High School.

“Vancouver born and raised!”

Weed history: “I’ve always used it for medicinal reasons – stomach issues. I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, and I started using tinctures for it and it worked really well. They were trying to give me steroids, but I’ve been treating everything naturally and haven’t had to go on big pharma medication. Cannabis has been a lifesaver for me.”

Favorite strains: Buffalo Bill from Doc & Yeti “Doc & Yeti has the best of everything!”

Flow Gel from Fairwinds Manufacturing. “When muscle stuff starts, I put some of that on and in 10 minutes, I’m ready to go.

She also really likes both the THC and CBD Melonberry tinctures from Fairwinds. “They’re effective and discreet.”

Customer support: “I think I’m good with everybody. The customers I like to talk to most are probably the older generations that maybe are looking for ways to manage pain. They’re sometimes surprised to learn that you can use cannabis and still be in control – it’s not always about a head high.”

“I also love people just getting into cannabis. They’re so great. They’re ready to learn and so excited!”

Weirdest thing about you: “I’m honestly probably a thrill seeker. I’ve tried to conquer my fears.”

To conquer her fear of heights, for instance, she decided to go sky diving, a hobby she now enjoys.

“I love anything that gets your adrenaline pumping. Growing up I had a lot of anxiety, and it’s been great to conquer things I’ve been afraid of.”

Where do you want to be in five years: “I’m actually thinking about going to school for naturopathic and holistic medicine. I’d love to merge cannabis with that sort of practice!”
