This month we’re chatting with Caleb Bunce of Elwha Peaks Cannabis out in Port Angeles, getting to the bottom of how he has fun – both in and out of the pot shop. You can keep up with Caleb at @washingtoncannabunce and check out what’s up at Elwha at @elwhapeakscannabis!
How long have you been a budtender and what do you find fun about what you do?
I’ve been a budtender for about three years now – two years in Oklahoma and a year here in Washington! I wanted to be a budtender because I was living in a medical-only state at the time, and I found other budtenders were lacking in knowledge. I took it upon myself to learn as much as I possibly could, so I could spread the knowledge I felt necessary.
What’s your go-to way to consume?
I’m huge into vaporization – I’ve had a Volcano vaporizer for almost a decade now and I don’t see myself ever going back honestly. I also love to dab, rosin specifically. I’m all about solventless concentrates!
Do you have any brands, products or strains you’re really enjoying on your shelves right now?
Oh jeez, there are quite a few. A couple of staples at our shop are Desert Valley and Mz. A, which are both smaller farms with exceedingly high-quality flower. I’ve been really loving Desert Valley’s HypoThermia bud … it’s everything I look for in Cannabis. We also just got Legendary Laboratories flower in for the first time, and my mind is properly blown at the quality they are putting out.
What’s your favorite activity to do when you’re stoned or have a day off from the shop?
Honestly, I tend to just laze about at home on my days off and get as high as I can. I like to chill out and relax by watching videos online or playing video games – that kind of stuff.
