Having lived between the Rogue Valley and Phoenix Arizona, Tyler has found himself settled back into the area! Initially going to school for culinary arts, Tyler worked in several kitchen settings and realized that while his passion was there for food, he wanted to be something much more involved with the customer instead of behind the scenes. He left the world of food and became a budtender in Arizona. This is where he found his work to be truly rewarding and fulfilling! After moving back over to the Rogue area, he knew he wanted to jump right back  into the cannabis industry. Tyler’s passion and connection with the patients have set him apart. He loves to stay on top of the constant change in the market as well as the science behind new products that are constantly emerging. He plans to continue working in this industry to gain as much knowledge as possible, and eventually wants to combine his culinary experience with his cannabis experience. His drive to succeed and continued success with RVC is why we have chosen him as this month’s budtender of the month!

Hmmm, for a single experience I would have to say when I got to help this younger medical patient. I was basically given the opportunity to open up his whole world to cannabis. It was his first time using for epilepsy and we went down his journey together as he continued to come in. We both learned so much from each other and it was so rewarding to become involved in some one else’s path to trying to heal themselves.

 WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE EDIBLE ON THE SHELF?

Caleb has always called Southern Oregon his home! After graduating high school, Caleb began to pursue a degree in software engineering. His roommate, an employee of Rogue Valley Cannabis, came home and asked if he would be interested in potentially working with the company. Being a regular consumer of cannabis, he thought this could be a really great to have while he continued going to school. After a quick interview, Caleb was hired onto the team. He has taken on the role as a bud tender and found a passion in helping patients and customers alike. He has also taken a dedicated perspective on educating the many people that come into the dispensary, and for that, Caleb has been chosen as our budtender of the month!

If I had to choose, I would say it was the first time I really helped a patient who genuinely needed pain relief. I sold her a topical and a couple weeks later she came back and thanked me so much. It was unbelievably rewarding.

 WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE EDIBLE ON THE SHELF?

The Marion berry Wyld Gummies! First time I tried them I ate all 10 dummies because they were so good. Needless to say, I learned my lesson and slept for about 11 hours haha, Wyld definitely provides a fantastic product.

I got bumped to the front desk, and I’m now a budtender! The customers are my most memorable experience thus far. A man came in with a brain injury and I chatted with him every visit. One day he looked at me and told me he hasn’t felt that good in so long and that is what I am in this industry for; to really see the healing power of cannabis. Being a part of people’s journeys has been the most rewarding and humbling experience.

TISHA, DECEMBER

From being born in Puerto Rico, and raised for a bit of her life in New York City and California, Tisha came to call Southern Oregon home in 2004. Her entrance into the cannabis industry was actually from her own health journey. Diagnosed with a rare blood disorder, Tisha found herself on many different medications. A client of hers first introduced her to CBD and tinctures, and through this woman’s help and knowledge Tisha pulled herself from every western medicine. Learning how to cure herself with cannabis occurred at the time where there was such a stigma in the medical community for such self treatment. This experience however opened the door for her to want to learn more. Tisha’s goal is to heal and help all of the people that she can, but most importantly, her mother. She hopes to continue her growth with RVC as much as possible and has an incredible drive to do just that. Her passion with customers and for cannabis is why we have chosen her as our Budtender of the Month!

Q&A

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN WITH RVC AND WHICH STORE ARE YOU AT?

I’m at the central point store and I have been there since May, so almost 7 months strong!

She and her son now come in almost every week and we have the opportunity to see living proof of cannabis being a medical miracle. We have also become family to them and it is incredible to be a part of such a life changing experience in someone’s life. They are truly amazing people and I am so grateful to have the opportunity to be a part of their journey.

WHAT IS YOUR ALL TIME FAVORITE STRAIN?

Space Queen for sure! This was the first strain I learned on the shelf and when I tried it, it was like I had never smoked!This is easily the most uplifting sativa I have ever had. I was giggly and it was just a ‘wow’ experience for me. Space queen is my girl – anything with it and I am in!

Lucille Ball, hands down. She was one of the first female comedians out there and she would never let a man tell her no. She curated her own studies and shows; everything she got a ‘no’ to she went out and did. I feel like her and I are so alike in personality and she just did everything so incredibly well.

 WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT WORKING WITH RVC?

The amount of growth they have allowed me to have. I went in there with very low self esteem and now I hold my head up higher than I ever have. RVC really follows the mantra that if you want to achieve it they’re going to help you achieve it, and if you don’t know how, they’re going to show you. It has been life changing and I feel so amazing to be a part of such an incredible business. RVC is not just a dispensary, I see us a life changing beacon. This is what dispensaries really should be like. I feel like we’re one huge heartbeat of our city.

Cannabis as we all know is legal in mMedford, but has not been approved recreationally in the Klamath Falls region, so naturally this industry grabbed his attention from the start! Since having started with us at Rogue Valley Cannabis, Ryan has been a star bud tender. His knowledge of cannabis in the few months that he has been here has more than tripled, and his customer service is outstanding. Ryan hopes to climb the ladder as much as he can and the industry, and we’re all for supporting his dreams which is why he has been chosen as our bud tender for the month of September!
