In an effort to cultivate community, compliance, and chuckles, Trax Team Solutions will be featuring various cannabis industry stakeholders in what we call, “#AdventuresInCannabis.”
For our first episode, we are featuring the CVO/Founder of Trax Team Solutions, Amber Bacca.
“Amber, please tell us about your wildest and/or favorite experience working in the cannabis industry thus far.”
“After 8.5 years in the industry, it’s difficult to pick just one story. I’d have to say that one of my favorite experiences was managing the store and budtending on January 1, 2014, which was the first day of recreational cannabis sales in the history of the world. We had been preparing for months, but we really didn’t know what to expect. We knew it would be busy, but there had literally never been recreational sales prior to that day so we had zero data to base our expectations on. I was at the store before the sun came up and we already had a line down the block. I believe there were only 7 or 8 stores that opened that first day so there were very few options for those who wanted to make purchases and be a part of history. In a store that had an all-time high record of assisting 71 patients, we saw 719 customers that day. There were cameras everywhere and so much excitement in the air, it was palpable and pretty emotional. It was truly one of the highlights of my career and my life as well. It was an experience that can never be replicated.”
