Budtender Q&A: Meet Chris
The Greenery in Durango, Colorado has built a great relationship with our community in Southwest Colorado over the last year – all thanks to our amazing budtenders! You know they are awesome at their budtender jobs, but we thought you might want to know a little more about what else they do.
This month, we are featuring our budtender, Chris:
Operations & Marijuana Cultivation Manager
Essentially, when I’m not budtending, I manage aspects of the cultivation process like staying compliant with state and local laws, re-ordering, inventory control and things of that nature.
Home of the Razorbacks/Walmart<(no one’s a fan).
Where the streets overflow with microbreweries, and the valleys hold hidden treasures.
When did you move to Durango, CO & why?
February 13th of 2015.
Everyone needs a change of scenery. I was looking for a town to move to for a couple years, I almost ended up in Bend, Oregon. But right before I moved, my friend from back home who attends the Fort Lewis College asked me to move in with her. So I packed all my stuff in my car and trailer, drove for a couple days and ended up here.
What do you do for fun (hobbies)?
Hike, canoe, climb, ski, try to play an instrument – the same stuff everyone else does in this town. However, I dabble in stained glass quite a bit and I can juggle fairly well.
What is your favorite part of Durango?
Well, it’s not in Durango, but it’s close to my house…kind of. Out the Vallecito Lake trail, maybe a mile back, you can turn off the trail and find a beautiful overlook that has a mountain behind you and the lake in front. It’s pretty sweet!
What are your favorite cannabis strains?
Durban Poison is one of my favorites lately it’s just tasty and stimulating. But, Snow Dog is a strain we had that I can’t get enough of. It’s a solid hybrid strain that has dense buds and a sweet, fruity smell. Great strain all around!
What is the best part of your dispensary job?
Well, my coworkers first. I think this is the first job I’ve had that hasn’t had any crazy drama going on at work and it’s pretty great. We all get along really well!
The other thing about this job is that there’s always an exciting new challenge around the corner.
