Tyler "Hobey" Weston – Oregrown(Winner of Best Budtender in our Best of Central Oregon 2019)
Favorite Strain: Platinum Girl Scout Cookies
Hobey's take on the strain: "I like this strain and the cookie strain varieties for their earthy, doughy flavors and their relaxing, stress-relieving effects that hit the user with that 'behind the eyes' effect that I personally enjoy.
Nikki Gifford – Dr. Jolly'sFavorite Strain: Wedding Cake
Nikki's take on the strain: "This is the best flower I have ever smoked, and this is my absolute favorite strain! I love this strain for its aroma; the flavors of tangy sweet earth and pepper grab my attention. It's visually stunning with its dense darkness and crystalized bud structure."
Bret H.D. – Tokyo Starfish
Favorite Strain: Ketama
Bret's take on the strain: "While many of the 'designer' strains of late have fantastic curb appeal, they can leave you wanting more from their fleeting highs. With land race strains, especially good ones like this Ketama, the high will last—and is like being taken on a historic journey to the far corners of the world."
Mylea Parker – Top Shelf MedicineFavorite Strain: Pre 98' Bubba Kush
Mylea's take on the strain:
"The nose gives you strong notes of your favorite Fruity Pebbles cereal, while leaving a tasteful and fresh breath. The effects give a strong body high that is sure to leave you relaxed and worry free."
