Post Production Cure Lead

How long have you been working for Medicine Man?

I have been working at Medicine Man in the Cure Department for a little over 5 years.

What’s your favorite product & why?

I love the Mary’s Medicinals products, but my favorite is The Cure. It’s an amazing product for muscle spasms and arthritis.

What kind of hobbies do you do outside of work?

I love just exploring Colorado and the great outdoors with my two children, especially the local rivers.

Your favorite part about working for Medicine Man and a memory you want to share?

I remember one winter when the power went out in the entire building and we had to work with headlamps in order to see. We all came together that day and laughed our way through the day.

Tell us about your first time smoking or eating edibles, or any funny stories that you remember!

The first time I smoked I threw up on the bus…..and then had to clean it up. So embarrassing.

Jalen

Sales Lead

How long have you been working for Medicine Man?

I have been with Medicine Man for a little bit over a year and a half now

What’s your favorite product & why?

My favorite products are definitely the Rosins we get in from all over. Nothing beats fresh terps and a solventless extraction for flavor and the quality of the high itself.

What kind of hobbies do you do outside of work?

 You can find me at a park watching my daughter go crazy most days, but when I can escape and I get some time to myself I enjoy a nice lakeside spot for some fishing and lots of snacks with my wife!

Fun fact about yourself:

I was the Denver Nuggets Ball Boy when I was around 5! I got to meet Jason Kidd and get his autograph and now he is a Hall of Famer which is pretty cool!

Your favorite part about working for Medicine Man and a memory you want to share?

My favorite part about working for Medicine Man is the Mom and Pop shop experience that you get working here. There is a genuine care for all who work here and it reflects out towards our customers who say the same about the Mom and Pop shop experience. Having worked for big corporations you tend to not feel like you matter, here at Medicine Man the owners and everyone down the ladder are so involved that you feel like your opinion matters! Makes it super easy to show up for work each day because of their support.

I would honestly have to say my favorite memory here was doing the curbside pickup for a week. It was hectic, historic in the sense of selling weed outside like we did, and customers and coworkers alike were all just coming together to make it work and enjoy our favorite products!

Tell us about your first time smoking or eating edibles, or any funny stories that you remember!

My first time smoking I remember showing up to the Greeley Stampede for the Carnival and it was the best night of eating/munchies I’ve had. I remember riding the Gravitron which is a ride that spins you super fast to stick you to the wall, and that made my high even stronger! I proceeded to eat a turkey Leg, funnel cake, kettle corn, BBQ, and my favorite homemade rootbeer stand was visited quite frequently. This was by far the best night of munchies I have ever experienced!

Ryan

How long have you been working for Medicine Man?

I have been working at Medicine Man for 10 years!!

What’s your favorite product & why?

I am a heavy Indica smoker and our Shaw Bud #3 is one of my favorites!

What kind of hobbies do you do outside of work?

I have been Breakdancing since I was about 16 years old and it has always been one of my passions! I also enjoy camping, hiking, fishing, and hitting the Jeep trails when I can find the time!

How did you get started in the cannabis industry and where do you see yourself in the future? 

I started off trimming part-time with Medicine Man before we opened up our Medical Dispensary. It had been a few months and I had been telling the owners that if an opportunity came around to move into a Budtending position, I would take it and never look back. Here we are 10 years later.

Your favorite part about working for Medicine Man?

I have never worked for a company that has cared more about or has taken care of their employees as Medicine Man has! For over a decade we have strived to be one of the most compliant and highest rated Dispensaries in Colorado! We definitely aimed, hit, and set “The Higher Standard!”

What is one of your earliest/funniest memories you have while using cannabis?

One of my earliest memories and experiences smoking cannabis would have to be getting together with my cousin and sitting at a friend’s house for a day. My cousin and I took a bunch of “Bong rips” and ate about three boxes of our friend’s cereal without milk. When our friend got back home the next morning my cousin and I were passed out asleep in the Livingroom on the floor with Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 on the T.V and the 3 empty cereal boxes and bags laid out around us!

If you were a food, what food would you be and why?

I would be a Pizza with Ham and Pineapple! Because the people who love ham and pineapple on their pizza would LOVE me and the people who believe that it is “KAPU” wouldn’t even bother with me! LOL!

  •  I was hired on at Denver to train up, once Thornton was open the plan was to be part of the leadership team and we’ve been rocking it since the grand opening! I’ve been in the industry for about 5 years now and every day there is something new to learn about the business, whether it’s about the customers, team members or products, this has taught me to adapt to the environment.

  • It started with a normal dispensary visit and I was working with a supervisor that recommended I get in the industry because I was looking for a change of pace, he said it was a fun industry and he was right! In the future if I’m not running my own store I’d like to help to train up the next wave of bud tenders and leadership in the industry.

Your favorite part about working for Medicine Man?

  • The family feeling you get from the team, from the highest on the ladder to the bud tenders, they make Medicine Man what it is! I know that I can depend on my leadership team if I need them, we have a GREAT crew!  The buildup to opening the Thornton location was amazing, we had all hands on deck making sure products were labeled, shelves were stocked and everything was ready to go. It was an honor to be a part of the grand opening of Thornton’s first dispensary.
