The Urban Farmacy Team
I am passionate about Cannabis! My personal journey started when my health took a turn for the worse about a decade ago: I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. I found my life was significantly improved when I ingested the cannabinoid CBD.
There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t turn to CBD to help with my chronic pain. I love that I am able to educate the community about Cannabis, CBD in particular. Each strain can cater to various needs or wants for the individual. Getting high can be great, but knowing what high you are seeking can make the experience so much better!
Sometimes what you are seeking is not getting high, but wanting anxiety or pain relief. Ask me about that, I will have so much to share with you.
I was a late bloomer and didn’t form an instant bond with cannabis. I had been around the plant long before it was medically or recreationally legal, however, I never fully utilized it until it came into my life professionally. I was an occasional social smoker who, like many of us, had a few overwhelming experiences with cannabis that negatively impacted my view of the plant. After a few years of working in the medical industry and witnessing first hand, I began to obsess over learning what it was, that was helping people.
Through years of personal experience, research and trial and error ‐ I am learning how to share my knowledge. One of my specialties is helping educate people about how to avoid a negative experience and increase their chances of finding the exact effects/relief they are seeking. After six years, my obsession is only growing and I feel I have found my calling in education, medication, and recreation.
I have found my calling in education, medication and recreation… I am here to help.
My personal cannabis journey has been an amazing one! In one way or another, we all have our own path in life: facing our own stressors and obstacles along the way. I began self-medicating at a point in my life when stressors and tensions ran extremely high. My experience with cannabis helped me reach the light at the end of the tunnel and has taught me many important life lessons!
Years later, I acquired my OMMP card to treat my Acromioclavicular joint pain and neuropathy. During the past 7 years, I have been working to find the specific ratio of cannabinoids and frequency of doses that works for me. Cannabis has without a doubt made a tremendous and profound improvement in my overall health and well-being.
Whether you’re new, or a well-seasoned connoisseur, stop by the Farm and see me. I would love to help you along your own personal journey, walking out informed, educated, and with a smile on your face. My knowledge and experience in this industry are here for all to share!
Hi everyone..I'm Alisha. Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. Lover of water, music, nature, the stars; and of course cannabis! Cannabis has become an integral part of my life over the last 14 years. My personal experience with cannabis is that it relieves body pain, unlike anything else. Once I discovered this, my journey began exploring and promoting cannabis as an all-inclusive medicine for, and by the people.
I feel blessed daily to be at the forefront of a growing, shifting industry that is continuously striving to provide valid education and support to our medicinal patients and recreational users alike. Cannabis is a truly healing plant that has the power of changing lives and providing relief to people with varying conditions. It is with this in mind, that I scrutinize and hand-pick cannabis products for the shelves of Urban Farmacy.
I will forever and always advocate for cannabis: I am very excited to see legalization continue to sweep the nation; the world.
Growing up down South, I never dreamed I'd be selling legalized cannabis in the Pacific Northwest. After over 10 years in Portland I was fortunate enough to join the team here at Urban Farmacy.
A regular customer for well over a year, they guided me thru dozens of strains, helping me find what worked best for my anxiety & depression. Not to mention the perfect flower for a day at the beach! I'm proud that I now have the opportunity to help others in the ways Urban Farmacy helped me.
I absolutely love hearing how much my customers enjoyed what they took home. Let me do my best to take care of you!
I've been a cannabis consumer for longer than I can remember. When I learned about this magical plant I have mos def become a cannabis enthusiast. I've always enjoyed using this herb to heighten my senses & the experience of whatever I'm doin'. Growing up on an island, I was: surfing, sk8ing, spear fishing, cliff diving, waterfall chasing & jumping and more!.
These days I use it to cope with everyday life, physical pain, emotional cleansing, cooking & cleaning, Netflixin', gaming, adventuring, wanderlusting, expanding my horizons & leveling up...1up!!! I envision a future where this medicine has gone global. So peeps can partake recreationally or medically, whatever they so fancy! It's time we start focusing our energy & wisdom on leveling up our knowledge of substances that enhance the imagination, for a healthier quality of life.
My specialty is helping people know which strain or product will heighten your senses and level up your experience.
I see the world through the lens of a gardener. It was through my love of plants, nature and gardening that I became a super fan of cannabis. I’ve smoked the flower for many, many years now, and have never been a stranger to its amazing medical benefits. Although, it wasn’t until I really began learning about gardening and plants that I began to understand cannabis; as it exists in nature, and how its place in the world has been so advantageous for us Humans.
I feel lucky to be a part of the generation that can finally talk openly about this plant and all its amazing qualities. It's fantastic being a part of the Urban Farmacy team: an honor to help educate and promote cannabis as a natural and normal part of the human experience.
Ask me about finding the right cannabis for your human experience.
As a daily cannabis user originally from a non-legal state (Texas), I have always enjoyed learning as much as possible about the unique qualities and amazing benefits of this plant. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for about 4 years now: I am lucky to have worked in the cannabis industry for 3 of those years.
I continue to further my knowledge of terpene science and the medicinal benefits of cannabinoids. I have personally found much relief from sciatic nerve pain, anxiety, and migraines through the use of a variety of CBD/THC products.
I am most passionate about topicals and transdermal skin patches: ask me about these, I use them daily!
