Everest Staff : Meet John G.

John G.
Patient Care Technician

When Patient Care Technician, John G. was undergoing chemotherapy to treat cancer, a family friend introduced him to the staff at Everest Apothecary. John received his medical card and began using medical marijuana to treat the side effects from the chemo and prescription medications he was taking.

“Cannabis really helped me get off the hardcore medications the hospital had me on. It alleviated the chronic pain and abdominal issues I was suffering from without taking prescription medications,” John said.

Soon after, John heard of a part time opening at Everest and jumped at the chance to help others who shared his experience.

“I always suggest people to be open to what medical marijuana can do for them. Not one thing works for everyone, it really depends on the person and their individual needs but can have a very positive effect on a variety of issues,” John said. “With any new patient, I try to ask questions about exactly what a patient is looking for in product the desired effects or relief they want to achieve. I ask their preference on what type of product they’d prefer – smoking, edibles, topicals, when they seek relief – nighttime or daytime, then we try to figure out what can work best. That’s the best part of medical marijuana, with so many forms and options we can help that many more people!”

John has worked at Everest Apothecary now for more than a year. Here are a few of his Everest favorites:

What’s your favorite handcrafted Everest strain? Candyland.

Favorite edible? Koi Fish Gummies.

Favorite concentrate? White Fire OG wax.

What’s great about the Everest culture? The love and support I get from every employee here at Everest.

What do you enjoy most about your job? The customers I meet, and even better, the ones that come back.

Hobbies: Home improvement and video games.

Why do you feel Everest makes a difference in patient’s lives? We provide a level of service and product that is unmatched in Albuquerque and it shows in every return customer.
