Allen I met through a concentrate company he worked for when I ran an inventory. It was widely regarded among my budtenders and myself that he was a favorite to have in house. Knowledgeable, kind, and down to Earth, it has always been exciting to have him educating patients. He is now with Vapen and making his mark as someone who truly wants the best for the patients. The combination of kindness and empathy along with amazing Instagram content of @dadneedsdabs, it feels as though the digital sesh was mastered. He has some of the best content in which you feel involved in everything he has to say because he takes an interest in what you have to say as well.
What company do you represent and what do you do?
Vapen, Sales Rep
What would you recommend people try from your brand?
Edibles and Concentrates!
You’re often known as a great guy, how do you make cannabis and conversation so easy?
It was not easy at first, but the more that I got to know people in the community, the easier it became to open up and build amazing relationships with great people.
What changes in normalizing cannabis would you like to see?
Ultimately, I would like to see people become more open about cannabis use.
How old are you in pot years?
I have been smoking for about 10 years. I have only been smoking regularly for about 7 years.
Any hidden talents?
If I have any, they’re still hidden!
Any other favorite strains, products, or places to get your medication?
Purple Punch and Goo are 2 of my favorites. I prefer terp sauce over all other concentrates, but after a long period of not having it, it usually gets me way too high for the first few days.
Your IG content is great quality, what inspires that?
Aside from making people laugh, I like to inspire people. I did not ever expect that my voice could be heard by so many people.
What changes would you like to see concerning new laws around cannabis?
I really want to see everything decriminalized.
What changes do you think will come with legalization?
Everything is going to change. From the way we are treated on social media, to the way we purchase our meds. I try not to focus on big business’s conquest of cannabis because in the end, I don’t think there’s anything we can other than find where we fit in. Eventually I believe cannabis will evolve two different ways. On one hand, you’re going to be able to buy cannabis at Walmart, but on the other hand, I think you’re going to see places for connoisseurs to shop.
Where can people find you and any announcements/events coming up?
I will always be popping into random dispensaries throughout the state. And oddly enough, I have not thought about April at all yet. I’m way late, it’s 4/2020!
When things get back to normal, whatever that was or may end up being; I hope you are able to connect with people working for our health and understand that they’re here to help. I imagine this is when our lives become more digital-focused than ever, but I urge you to place importance on human interaction because truly having people in your life, is what makes life worth living.
