Amanda Brunton: Video TranscriptMy names Amanda Brunton. Im a lab technician here for the extracts lab, and I focus mainly on purification.
I take unformulated oil and I pull all of the cannabinoids out of it.
I was interested in the lab when I first came here, but they didnt have an opening at the time, so I ended up in horticulture.
And then when the extracts lab was getting busier, and more stuff going on, they put out the job position and they came and were like, Hey, are you interested? and Im like, Yeah, totally! Ill apply! Ive been wanting to work in the lab since I started here.
So I love how precise you have to be, how much attention you have to pay to it. Its a lot of fun.
I love Pokémon. Its my number one love in life. Maybe my number two love, because my husband is my number one love. My number two love is Pokémon. You know, once that first game came out, I just got hooked and Nintendo has captured my heart. LAUGHS
What Im doing here matters to someone else. Like, Im not just kind of drudging away at a job thats, whatever; Im actually doing something thats benefiting somebody else, alleviating their symptoms, making their day to day better. Its a great, great feeling.
