“When I do a review I always pick an activity that I think would pair well with the high that I’m going to get from that strain,” Browne said in the premiere episode of Thrillist’s “Job Goals” on Facebook Watch. “Something energetic for a hike or seeing live music, or weed that’s more focused if I’m hosting a dinner party.”
After sampling a cannabis strain, typically on assignment, Browne will sit and take notes on the experience: his physical, sensory, and psychological reactions to the green stuff -- from paranoia levels and food-cravings to euphoria and lethargy -- before he structures it all into a formal review. On certain occasions, Browne will focus his writing around a weed-centric activity, say, a fiction-writing workshop where being high is a mandatory prerequisite. While he typically tries not to write for work while high, the occasional stoned report is relatively difficult to avoid, as you can imagine. All in all, he’s the city’s most prolific pot head.
