His first LA job was working as a delivery driver for a large medical marijuana edible company. He learned everything about edibles, “drinkables” and topicals, along with all of the other fascinating products in the dispensaries he visited. From San Luis Obispo to San Diego, Willy visited over 200 different dispensaries, first as a delivery driver, then as a brand ambassador.
Fast forward a few years and Willy found himself budtending at one of the hottest dispensaries in California. It was there that he learned to apply all of his experience towards individual patients and customers. Getting to learn each customer’s needs, and getting feedback from returning visitors helped him cut his teeth as an authority in the varieties of cannabis products. He quickly stood out as the go-to guy for tough questions, and began representing the dispensary for larger publications such as High Times and Civilized.
The Highly even mentioned him in their “Guide to Los Angeles” as “honest, down to earth and a connoisseur of all things organic.” Willy can be found in Highland Park tending to his garden and practicing his scales.
