Since retiring from the Army, I started out working as a delivery driver for a local dispensary (Surterra) in 2018. I worked my way up to assistant manager opening a new location (FWB) within 10 months. Though I love the dispensary side of the industry, I felt it necessary to gain clinical experience. So I decided to take a job with The Kaya Life Cannabis Clinicians as a Cannabis Advisor/Practice Manager in 2021.
The key to this change is that I was no longer held back by dispensary retail liabilities. Meaning I could now be more specific in advising patients and in doing so, I began learning from others experiences along with my own in more detail. A true blue case study at the user level (Not Peered Reviewed). This allowed me to assist others in finding specific products for specific results saving hundreds of dollars.
