Name: Eric Peterson
From: Oregon City, Oregon
Weed history: “I really didn’t smoke until I started here. I had a rough time at another job and a friend helped bring me here. Since then, things have gotten much better for me.
Before I started I had some muscle issues from heavy lifting at an old job, and I was very curious to try marijuana and see if it helped. Jack Herer was the first strain I tried after starting at The Herbery and it gave me the best guitar playing experience I ever had – along with helping with the soreness and pain. It eliminated any doubts that I had.”
Favorite strains: Jack Herer from Cedar Creek Cannabis (“That’s my top sativa”), OG Kush from Cedar Creek Cannabis, Cinex from Phat Panda, Gorilla Glue and Ewok from Cascadia Gardens, and Dutch Treat from Doc & Yeti.
Customer support: “I’m pretty good with older customers – people that are in their 50s or older. I just click very well with them when I’m talking. I love joking around with them. We just seem to get each other.”
Weirdest thing about you: “I have kind of a dark, absurd sense of humor. If I were a comedian I’d probably fit well with Monty Python. I also play guitar – both acoustic and electric. I play a mix of everything from rock to folk to hard rock to death metal.”
Where do you want to be in five years: “I’m still trying to figure things out. I’m in the rediscovery stage of my life right now and I’m just enjoying the ride.”
