Budtender Spotlight: Lynne

Name: Lynne

From: Portland, Oregon, but she’s lived in Vancouver for the past 25 years.

Weed history: “First time I tried it was in high school in like 1973. I started working an ambulance when I was 19, and cannabis became a good soother for the stresses of that job. I’ve been pretty much smoking ever since.”

Favorite strains: “I’m a sativa smoker mostly. I love Doc & Yeti‘s Red Headed Stranger. I also love Cedar Creek’s Jack Herer and Gorilla Glue from Sunshine Farms. Gorilla Glue for me is sort of a sativa hybrid high, although it’s a transition weed. I also like Dream Beaver from Phat Panda.”

Customer support: “Overall I’m probably best with older people – my age – who aren’t always sure what they’re doing. Also people who are coming into either new or are coming back after a long time. I like helping people through the stigma and showing them what’s new.”

Weirdest thing about you: “I collect tacky religious icons. I surround myself with things that bring me joy and make me smile, and I have lots of them. I have a big piece of art of Mary and Jesus up and home that’s probably my favorite. But I love anything with Jesus and sparkles.”

Where do you want to be in five years: “If I’m not retired by then, I’d love to still be here.”
