More About Papin

Favorite Strain and Why

My go-to choice is usually indica-dominant strains. They help me manage my occasional sleep issues and offer a deeply relaxing sensation that soothes the body. The calming effects of indica strains are just what I need after a long day.

Expertise Area

My understanding of the subtleties of flavor profiles in both food and cannabis makes me particularly adept at recommending the perfect strain for any culinary adventure.

Fun Fact

I often find myself lost in amusing thoughts, leading to spontaneous moments of laughter or smiles. It’s my mind’s way of keeping the day light and joyful.

Best Cannabis Tip

For those trying cannabis for the first time, setting and mood are crucial. Stay hydrated, remember you’re in a legally safe environment, and allow yourself to fully enjoy the experience.

Hobbies & Interests Outside Work

I’m passionate about discovering new music and curating playlists. I also enjoy watching movies and documentaries, learning about permaculture, and practicing holistic wellness routines like stretching.

Favorite Thing to Do in Bangkok

I love indulging in the city’s culinary delights, sightseeing, attending pop-up events and exhibitions, and relaxing at bars or cafes.

A Quote That Inspires Me

“Life never stops teaching, so never stop learning” — This quote reminds me to embrace continuous growth and learning in all aspects of life.

If I Were a Cannabis Strain, I’d Be…

Blueberry Ghost OG. I resonate with its unique bud structure, the tantalizing fruity aroma, and the refreshing herbal citrus flavor.

Most Memorable Customer Experience

It’s challenging to pinpoint just one. Meeting people from around the world, exchanging stories, and learning about our diverse cultures has been an enriching experience. Each interaction is a window into a new world.

My Dream Cannabis-Infused Meal

A traditional Thai north-eastern Esan dish like Laab or Tom-Gai would be my choice for a cannabis-infused meal. The blend of local flavors with cannabis would be a delightful culinary adventure.

My Go-To Song for a Chill Session

My musical taste is eclectic. I’m a big fan of artists like Lana Del Rey, FKA Twigs, and Bjork. And, I must confess, K-Pop is my secret guilty pleasure.

If I Could Have a Superpower, It Would Be…

The ability to breathe underwater and explore the ocean’s depths, coupled with the strength to fend off any hungry sharks I might encounter.

The Best Piece of Advice I’ve Ever Received

“We cannot force someone to hear a message they are not ready to receive, but we must never underestimate the power of planting a seed.”

This wisdom guides my interactions, reminding me of the subtle impact we can have on others, even in the most unexpected ways. It’s about patience, understanding, and the gentle art of influence, which is particularly relevant in the world of cannabis, where misconceptions are common. This advice has taught me the importance of being a thoughtful communicator and a compassionate listener, both in my professional role at Dr Green and in my personal life.
