Budtender of the Month: Stevie Thee G.O.A.T.

I don’t just smoke to get high. I smoke to have an experience.

She’s a confident, loving person who likes to make the most out of life by spending time with friends and family vacationing and partying together. Her perfect day is watching the sun dip into the ocean while roller skating with a blunt in hand. Follow her on Instagram (@_marked444greatness_).

What’s it like to live and work in West Hollywood? It’s a dream come true, right?
I came here about a year ago, and it’s been really eventful, always something going on. I love the people here; they’re really accepting and positive. They’ve been celebrating me since I got here. I’m originally from the Rancho San Bernardino area. 

Are you off the charts?
Definitely am. 

How does Cannabis play a role in your fabulousness?
I’m able to connect more spiritually when using Cannabis. I feel more connected when using weed. I don’t just smoke to get high. I smoke to have an experience, to get in touch with others – that collective energy. It’s opened me up more while making me more relaxed and calmer about my journey. 

You’re very approachable behind the counter. Have you always been that way, or do you feel like you’re just tapping into your full potential now?
Everything is evolving. I always want people to have a good experience with me and to always have something positive be said about me. So, I just try to glow through all the madness. 

What do you dream about? Do you have high aspirations, or are you content with just focusing on the present moment knowing that things will always work out?
I like living in the now because the present is the best place to be. If you were to tell me two years ago that I was going to be a budtender at a Cannabis dispensary, I wouldn’t have believed you, and look what happened. So, to answer the question, I like to go with the flow and see where life takes me.

If you could dance with anyone in the world, who would it be?
I’m a big raver, so that would be the DJ, Deorro.

About Mike Ricker

The first time Ricker smoked weed was at a Santana concert at the age of 12. He then followed in his footsteps as an award-winning radio personality who became notorious for offering a stage for bong toking listeners in 9 different markets over 20 years. In 2016, the Cannabis industry came calling and the rest is history.
