2019 “710 Master” Winner, Alex Almadova

Budtenders

My first thought about the Budtender Awards was that it was dope that they were throwing an event to honor budtenders.

The event was crackin’. I had so much fun! Forgive me, I partied the whole time. The event was too dope! The next one I would reach out a little more and network better. But when you’re a winner, things will go right for you. You just need to keep working harder than everyone else.

Winners- Alex Almadova

I’ve spent more than half my life with this plant. From seed to harvest, from dispensary to distribution, I want to succeed in my own lane. I’m taking notes so I can do this myself. I do this no matter what. I have been in this mix, I know the protocol.

No question my favorite part of the event was winning the award. It was an honor to be acknowledged for all these years of good, bad & ugly that many of us experience in this lifestyle. I knew I was going to win. I felt in my heart and soul. 

I’m from the OG side of this. Let’s never get that twisted. I will always put my values and soldiers before any one of these “no weed smoking money-hungry entrepreneurs”. But it is what it is.

We keepin’ G, always Stay SUCKA FREE until the death of me in this lane.

In this cannabis realm, most people hire who they know that’s just the reality. You can have a lot of skills and if you’re not in with those people you ain’t shit unless you put some magic together. That’s why we have to be creative and make our own lanes. We’re leaders. This pandemic has been a trip. I’m blessed to still be at the Apothecary and working, doing the social media, and killin’ it in sales every day. It’s been easier to sell to consumers cause the award has definitely given me more confidence. It gave me some stripes in the industry. 

I, like everyone else, want to sell my own shit or white label top-shelf growers that I love. If you start in the back of the classroom you have to grind a little harder to get to the front of the classroom, which is fine with me. I’m a mothafuckin’ beast in the game. I’m the no stress express ambassador, your Good Vibe Tribe pastor. 

I’m also working on owning a trademark really soon called NO BUNK JUST FUNK which will be my brand. I’ve made a few product review videos on YouTube over the past year. I created a website that I will soon sell from once I own the name. I got some merch; fresh shirts that the people have been liking. I sold 200 so far out the trunk. Hustla never stopping and never quitting.

Making improvements each time, baby steps, but we are on top of it! My hope is by the time it’s federally legal, I can make sure the whole nation or at least the WEST COAST knows about the NO BUNK JUST FUNK

 

Every Nomination Counts as a vote!
