Spotlight – Jared

Harvest of OH’s Dispensary Associates are known for their friendly dispositions and vast knowledge of the industry and products. Jared is an outstanding team member thanks to his ability to connect with our patients and ensuring that the work he does is exceptional every day.

Q: As we wrap up 2023, what lessons have you harvested from your journey working in the medical cannabis industry this past year?

Medical cannabis patients come in wide varieties, with different wants and needs and knowledge levels. So I don’t assume or recommend products based on my tolerance and taste, without first getting a baseline feel for the patient’s experience with cannabis products.

Q: What's your secret sauce for staying in the loop about all the products we have on our dispensary shelves?

Asking questions! Whether it be a co-worker, Brand Ambassador from another company, or our patients themselves. That way, I have more of a broad knowledge and not just first-hand experiences since cannabis can affect people differently. I was always told the dumbest questions are the ones you don’t ask!

Q: What’s the absolute highlight of being a Dispensary Associate?

For sure our regulars! Being able to chat frequently and give recommendations, then receive feedback on the next visit of said recommendations, in order for us to better serve them is amazing!

Q: What is your favorite Harvest memory that brings a smile to your face?

In all honesty, finding out I got hired. Cannabis has been a part of my life for a while now and I really wanted to get into this industry– that way I would be able to interact with and help people on a day to day basis.

Q: Reflecting on your journey at Harvest from the beginning until now, in what ways have you personally evolved?

Just by getting my foot in the door at Harvest, I feel as if I have brand new windshield wipers, and I’ve got a clear vision of where I’d like to go in this industry and my future.

Q:With the recent passage of Issue 2, what exciting developments do you hope to witness at Harvest of OH in the coming years?

The development of recreational dispensaries is something I’ve experienced in various states, and it’s a whole different ball game. It’ll be interesting to see how Ohio approaches the industry, allowing dispensaries to have dual licenses for both medical and recreational sales and operations.

Q: If you had the power to bring one mythical creature to life, which one would you choose?

I would choose a Pegasus.

Q:What’s an awesome hidden talent you have up your sleeve?

Dance move : The worm. Party trick : Juggling.

Q:If the seasons were constant and never changed, which one would you prefer to experience all the time?

I would say spring.

Q:Throughout your life, what has been your proudest achievement?

Being a good/fun uncle. Cheesy? Yes. But I genuinely love being “Uncle Bub” or “Ubba” for short. I could go on and on about my nieces and nephew!

Q:What’s a song that’s been playing in your head recently?

Gold on the Ceiling by The Black Keys

Q:If you were to write a book about your life, what would the title be, and what genre would it belong to?

Title : “Did I Ever Wake Up?” Genre : Sci-Fi Fantasy Thriller.
