Los Angeles native and flower host, Centeria Hall, is ecstatic to be part of the historic staff at the ground-breaking Lowell’s Cannabis Café in Los Angeles.
“It’s just starting to sink in – the greatness of the place, and the importance of the work I’m doing,” she says from her home in Los Angeles.
Different from a food server, the flower host visits your table and helps you have the best recreational and/or medicating experience ever by pairing the finest flower with food, all while keeping customers safe and level headed.
“I have to be thoughtful on how I approach our customers,” she shares. “Just like in budtending, we can’t give medical information, we can’t diagnose, and we can’t lay claim to the benefits of the plant—even if we know from personal experience that cannabis might work for a certain symptom.”
Medicated, not high, is key, as each human body varies in dosing and protocols, depending on lifestyle and diet. The flower host must be mindful and attentive. What each flower host brings to the table matters, not just in product, but in their own life experiences, combined with their own personal use and knowledge of cannabis.
At Lowell’s, Hall’s focus is for each customer to have a relaxing and enjoyable evening; and if a sore muscle is healed in the process, it’s a moot point. It may be a bonus, but not the intent. Not having a bad outcome is the ultimate goal.
Self-Medicating for Stress
Hall was born and raised in Los Angeles. She attended Mt. San Antonio College, majoring in Sociology, with a focus on Marriage and Family Counseling. She wanted to be a recording engineer, but found it to be too expensive a calling.
