Name: Josh Werner


From: Vermillion, Ohio (Moved to Vancouver in 2014) “I moved here with my girlfriend, who works at Fat Head’s Brewery in Portland.”

Weed history: “I’ve been smoking exactly half of my life (he’s 28), almost to the day. It was a month after my 14th birthday – the 4th of July. I remember it exactly. Let’s just say I was influenced by some older friends. But I found that it was a natural remedy for my ADHD – so I kept going.”

Favorite strains: Sour Diesel and all the Haze strains. At the shop his favorites are Gorilla Glue and Dirty Girl from Cascadia Gardens, and Super Lemon Haze from NW Custom Chronic.

Customer support: “I love all of our customers. That’s why I’m here. I was a bartender for eight years – so if you want somebody used to talking to people from all walks of life, that’s me!”

Weirdest thing about you: “I can freak people out with my knowledge of music. I know a little bit of everything. I can quote the most hardcore rap and then switch to things like Cat Stevens or Bing Crosby.”

Where do you want to be in five years: “I’m here for the long haul. I see myself with The Herbery, wherever the company needs me to be.”
