March and Ash is proud to introduce our exceptional team of cannabis industry experts, a group of highly informed and seasoned professionals dedicated to assisting customers on their cannabis journey. Recently, we had the privilege of interviewing Brian Aldaz, our Store Lead at the Chula Vista location on Telegraph Canyon Rd. In this conversation, Aldaz shared his remarkable journey in the cannabis industry, highlighting his growth and development at March and Ash. Our discussion delved into his personal insights, product preferences, and the essential role that cannabis plays in his daily routines.

“I’ve been with March and Ash for almost 5 years,” said Aldaz.

“I got started [in the industry] back in 2016 at a cannabis job fair when I was hired by another dispensary here in San Diego who had one of sixteen licenses to operate at the time. I didn’t have a lot of experience with cannabis, but I was working for quality control at Fedex and wanted to do something different with my life and have more of an impact on people.” At March and Ash, we're proud to have professionals like Aldaz who are not only deeply knowledgeable but also deeply committed to enhancing the cannabis experience for our customers.

“What I enjoy the most is all the people I get to meet and be able to help out with their needs whether it be medical, recreational, or emotional. What keeps me motivated here is being able to see returning faces and customers letting me know how much the products helped them out.”
