Passion to help drives Remedy team’s mission

Discover what it means to live happy and live healthy

For Carmen Miller, the wellness possibilities cannabis and CBD provide make it an exciting time not only for the industry, but for the the public.

Carmen has been part of the Remedy Tulalip team since it opened its doors in August. As a Tribal member and front of house lead, Carmen is excited to share his knowledge and passion for the wellness possibilities cannabis offers.

“When I learned the tribe was opening the store I really wanted to be part of it and the opportunity to give back to the community,” he reflects.

As he shares stories of patrons’ success in using CBD and whole plant cannabis to eliminate medications, he’s inspired to use all that he’s learned to help others seeking alternatives to pharmaceuticals. Carmen looks forward to educating those community members who may be unsure but are looking to eradicate self-medicating with prescriptions or illicit drugs to address pain or mental health issues.

“Almost every day we have someone come in who shares a story about how cannabis or CBD is helping them live healthier and happier,” Carmen says.

Education: At the store level, Cannabis Concierges are both knowledgeable about cannabis and the unique array of products on their shelves, and committed to ongoing education.

“I thought I had a lot of knowledge before I started working with Remedy Tulalip,” Carmen says, “but through the ongoing education we have, it’s really opened my eyes to all cannabis and CBD can do.”

“We’re trying to break the stigma about cannabis use and increase people’s understanding,” he explains.

Experience: Underlining the importance of the interplay between mental wellbeing, physical health and spiritual connection, Sunshine Jess, manager at Remedy, references a guest who finds benefit from RSO products to manage cancer symptoms. Another regular finds it helpful in her struggle to stay clean from heroin, while making the cannabis education she gains at Remedy part of her new weekly routine.

Looking ahead, Carmen and Sunshine look forward to evolving the current endeavour into growing and production, with plans underway for Remedy Tulalip to begin cultivating their own crops. “We can’t wait to get to the farm and grow these opportunities even more,” Sunshine says.

Excellence: “Now that Remedy Tulalip is established, we’re getting questions about what makes us different. “Operating under the Tulalip Cannabis Compact, Remedy Tulalip works closely with suppliers to ensure a high standard for all vendors so we know exactly the content of the cannabis you’re getting,” Sunshine highlights. “This allows us to support getting Native brands to the forefront of the cannabis marketplace, while presenting exceptional products in an educational context, at competitive pricing.”

The store is also expected to produce community benefits, including supporting initiatives and wellness goals for the tribes.

“We really are set up here to make significant contributions and have a real impact for our people, while economically supporting our community,” she says.

“Remedy is intent on showing every degree of respect to the regulatory agencies and our neighbors, and is mindful of how we fit into the brand that has been built by the Tulalip Tribes.”
