AF: What got you into Cannabis?
BS: My older brother. He was the first one to introduce me to cannabis and thought it might be a better alternative medicine than the pharmaceuticals I was taking. It was 2002.

AF: How do you like to consume cannabis?
BS: I like to consume it every which way, but my personal favorite is to smoke it. Whether it be a joint, spliff, bong, bowl, or blunt, smoking is the way to go.

AF: What’s your favorite strain to smoke?
BS: My favorite strain for a long time was Dosidos, but has since become Mendo Breath upon moving to the bay. It's dark, it's purple, it's sexy.

BS: Hands down, without a doubt, Totino's pizza rolls.

AF: If you could smoke with one person from history?

BS: That's too hard...I'm going to have to choose two, ok? Thomas Jefferson and Albert Einstein. Both have wondrous theories about the universe and life itself, I would pick their brains for ages.

AF: What is your favorite thing to do on your days off?

BS: Days off include trips with my dog, Fox, video games, candle making, being with friends, and just simply doing nothing.

AF: What kind of music do you enjoy?

BS: I have very eclectic taste, but I tend to lean towards classic rock, blues, jazz, soul, and funk.

AF: What is the last movie you liked?

BS: Angel Heart with Mickey Rourke and Robert De Niro. A gumshoe detective story set in 1950s New Orleans, incorporating elements of murder and Voodoo. One hell of a film not to mention a complete and utter mindf*ck.

DANIEL FERNANDEZ - NOVEMBER ‘18

Airfield: Daniel Fernandez has been a great addition to the budfloor. His warm and positive attitude is a hit with his fellow budtenders, as well as our daily clientele.

Daniel Fernandez: Thank you!

AF: What got you into Cannabis?

“…I discovered the comradery within stoner culture and that has always drawn me closer.”

DF: I got into cannabis when I was around 14, I used it as a way to get away and try not to think about my problems at the time. From there I discovered the comradery within stoner culture and that has always drawn me closer. 

AF: How do you like to consume cannabis?

DF: Lately I’ve been dabbing a lot mostly because of convenience because it’s too cold to go smoke a j outside. When the weather starts the warm up I’ll probably start smoking flower again and save dabs for before bed. The ritual for either one is what makes the experience I see it as a time to just relax and unwind mentally.

AF: What’s your favorite strain to grow?

DF: I’ve only grown one time and that was this year, I ended up growing two taffie clones. I wish I could’ve grown something more indica dominant because I love Indys, but I like the high on it, it’s cerebral at first and then moves towards the more relaxing side towards the end. I want to grow a headband plant in the future because I know they are kinda challenging due to the way the nugs grow but I want to challenge myself also. 

AF: What’s the best thing to eat when your lit?

DF: I don’t really get the munchies too often anymore but I guess I like to eat hot Cheetos and bean and rice burritos with a bunch of salsa because I always have that at my house.

AF: If you could smoke with one person from history?

DF: I would love to smoke with Marvin Gaye, I admire his music and how he thought as an individual so it would be really cool to smoke a j and pick his brain for a few hours. 

AF: What is your favorite thing to do on your days off?

DF: I love to go hiking and play basketball mostly, I love being outdoors so whenever I get the chance I try to be. I go hiking at least once a week, getting away from the city really clears my mind and gets me ready for the week.

AF: What kind of music do you enjoy?

DF: I love a bunch of music, mostly I listen to like jazzy blues alternative it doesn’t have like a specific genre but it’s chill and I can get really high and lost in it, I grew up on 90’s alternative from my dad but I listen to underground rap, 90’s rap, my grandpa showed me oldies and Motown music as a kid so I love that too.

AF: What is the last movie you liked?

DF: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless mind, a beautiful movie.
