How did you get involved in the industry?
I got involved in the industry because I was originally working for a pain management provider. He ended up selling the company and moving to LA. So, I was familiar with many pain disorders and treatments. I can really bridge the gap between pain medications and medical marijuana. After I left that job, I realized I can apply my previous knowledge and experience to this industry instead. And I love it!
What is your favorite part of your job?
My favorite part of my job is definitely working with patients. I like solving health issues for them and talking to them. I love bringing a personal connection to health care. It’s nice to educate patients but I also am constantly being educated by patients!
Recall a time you helped someone and made a difference?
The last time I worked, I was on the phone with someone who was looking for CBD products. I gave them advice on what to buy. I make a difference every time I work at Potomac Holistics because I am constantly helping people!
What’s a common question you get from customers?
A common question I get from customers is “how long will it take for an edible to affect me?” and honestly, there’s never the right answer for that. A lot of people also ask me the difference between CBD and THC. People don’t really know unless you have talked to an agent in the industry.
How does medical marijuana benefit your life?
Wow well, there are so many variables. Personally, I have had many injuries from being a personal trainer for so many years. I never have to take any pain killers because medical marijuana eases my pain for me. In addition, I also experience anxiety and insomnia. Indica strains always help me feel better and go to sleep. In many ways for many different reasons, medical marijuana has helped me immensely.
What’s your favorite product in the store?
I don’t know if I have one single favorite product. Right now, I would say that Culta flower products are my favorite. We have such a variety of products that answering this question is difficult! We carry great, premium products.
