Together with Lilu Farms DispensaryStoner Staples: A Guide to Lilu Farms Products
Lilu Farms is a local dispensary with a great range of totally-legal THC products that’ll have you floating on cloud nine. Since opening in March, Lilu Farms has quickly become known as the premier purveyor of farm-to-table good times. Longtime tokers and newbies alike come to Lilu Farms, and their knowledgeable staff are able to accommodate everyone. Depending on your needs, wants and preferences, the staff will match you to the product that is perfect for you. If you’re not sure where to start, here’s a brief guide to the products available at Lilu Farms.
Delta 8
Delta 8 is the most well-known alternative cannabinoid on the market, lauded for its recreational attributes and lack of federal regulation. This type of THC is less potent than other types, but you’re still likely to get a nice buzz. People buy Delta 8 to mellow the mood and promote a more calm mental state. Consumers also like to use it for a sleep aid. 
Delta 9
About twice as potent as Delta 8, Delta 9 is what you want if you’re trying to get lifted legally. Delta 9 is true THC, the regulated controlled substance. You don’t need to worry about trouble with the law though. Lilu Farms has DEA certificates of analysis ensuring that all of their Delta 9 products are within federal and state guidelines, while still having enough potency to deliver a good high. 
Delta 10
Delta 10 is another type of THC that is considerably less potent than both Delta 9 and 8. It has a mild sativa-like effect without being psychoactive. Users report enjoying elevated energy and mood. Known at Lilu Farms as the stoner’s cup of joe, it won’t bog you down with paranoia or anxiety. Customers say it’s the perfect morning antidote to a hangover, helping you push through the day. 
A relatively new compound, THC-O is like a stronger, more potent Delta 8 remix. It can get you much higher than Delta 9, so you’ll definitely want to start small and slow. In addition to its recreational effects, THC-O can also help stimulate the appetite. 
THC-P is the strongest natural cannabinoid available. It’s said to be up to 33 times more potent than THC alone, so it’s definitely not for the faint of heart. Don’t bite off more than you can chew with this one. Because of its potency, it’s probably unlike any other THC product you’ve ever had before. Starting small is strongly recommended. 
Another newer alternative cannabinoid, HHC contains no THC whatsoever. That being said, it can still deliver euphoric vibes. This is a product that will sneak up on you over time, which makes the experience more enjoyable. 
Lilu Farms offers these cannabis products in a variety of ways including candies, gummies, chocolates, dabs, vapes, flowers and pre-rolls. They also have topicals in the forms of soaps, salves, bath bombs, tinctures and coconut oil. No matter what you’re looking for, Lilu Farms is excited to help you find the perfect cannabis product for your needs. Visit them on Whitaker St. soon!

The ShowLocally-Made Documentary Iron Family Makes Its Savannah Debut
No weekend plans yet? Here’s something to consider: On Friday, Oct. 14 at 7 p.m., there will be a screening of Iron Family at the Savannah Cultural Arts Center. A heartwarming documentary, Iron Family follows the story of Jazmine Faries, a playwright with Down Syndrome, and her family as they go through the process of writing, rehearsing and performing one of her original plays. 
The family bond, Jazmine’s personal struggle for independence, and the joy her projects bring to her community in Michigan’s Iron River are key themes in the documentary. Iron Family has won several awards over the last year, and it’s finally making its Savannah debut. The premiere is a homecoming for Iron Family since many of the scenes were shot in Savannah with the post production taking place here as well. The filmmaker Patrick Longstreth also has ties to the Hostess City. 
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers along with Jazmine and her family members. Tickets will be sold at the door for just $10.

AlfrescoSavannah Square Spotlight: Washington Square
Located on Houston St. in between East Congress and East Bryan, you’ll find Washington Square. It’s an idyllic green space with verdant vegetation and statuesque trees providing ample shade. Vibrant shell ginger and lush leopard plants are among the greenery that make Washington Square so inviting. It’s surrounded by beautiful historic homes, which further add to the square’s allure and charm. 
As you can likely guess, the square was named after President George Washington, who paid a visit to the site in 1971, one year after it was built. It’s one of just two squares that were named after a person who was alive at the time of its creation. The other is Troup Square, which was named after former Georgia governor, George Troup. 
In the square, you’ll find a small column made from Savannah gray bricks topped with a bronze plaque. The structure is a monument to the Washington Fire Company No. 9, which was a volunteer fire department that served from 1847-1875. The monument honors the firefighters of the Washington Fire Company as well as the Savannah Fire Company No. 1. It was erected in 2007. 
Washington Square is a picturesque park perfect for a nice stroll with your four-legged friend. With several benches available throughout the square, it’s also a great place to enjoy your lunch on a warm day or relax beneath the trees with a good book. 
If you find yourself downtown in the Historic District’s northeast end, be sure to stop by Washington Square. And if you like this kind of content, check out our last spotlight on what might be Savannah’s most beautiful square.
The ProHow to Nail an Interview
If you’re one of the 10 million people in America who are currently in the market for a new job, this one’s for you. Say you’ve come across an opportunity, online or otherwise. (Contrary to what you might think, most jobs are actually found via networking. So if you’re looking for work locally, plan to attend some of Savannah’s top networking events.) Anyways, after discovering the opportunity, you put in an application, and you’ve been called in for an interview. Congratulations are certainly in order, but we don’t want to get too ahead of ourselves. Landing the interview is the easy part. You have to nail the interview to really seal the deal. 
Depending on where you are in your career, you may have plenty of interview experience. But you can never be too prepared. There are certain things that you can do to set yourself up for success when you meet with your potential employer. So, without further adieu, here are some helpful tips that you can use to nail your interview. 
1. Research the company.
Start preparing for your interview by doing some preliminary research on the company. Spend some time perusing the company website and check out their social media as well. During the interview, your interviewer is likely to ask you what you know about the company. Demonstrating that you’ve done your homework is a good way to indicate genuine interest in the role. And employers are more likely to hire candidates who have knowledge of the company. 
2. Study the job description.
Familiarize yourself with the job description to know exactly what the company is looking for in a potential hire. Having a good understanding of the requirements of the position will help you navigate the interview and identify the ways that your skills align with those listed in the job description. 
3. Study your resume.
Know your resume very well because your interviewer will likely ask questions about your work experience. Speaking confidently and knowledgeably about your experience and providing relevant examples when appropriate will serve you well in the interview process.
4. Make a good first impression.
You only have one chance to make a first impression, so you want to do everything you can to make it good. Show up well groomed and well dressed. Stick to business casual. Start with a firm handshake and a congenial smile. And be sure to make eye contact with the interviewer, but not in a creepy way. 
5. Ask questions.
Though the interviewer will pose most of the questions, you definitely want to have some questions for them at the end of the interview. When researching the company and studying the job description, come up with two or three relevant questions. You can ask about the role, upcoming projects, career development, company culture, etc. Keep in mind that the interview isn’t just about figuring out if you’re a good fit for the job. It’s also about determining whether the company is a good fit for you. Ask pertinent questions that will help you make that decision.
6. Follow up.
Within 24 hours of the interview, be sure to send a quick email thanking the interviewer for their time and consideration. Recap a couple of things you talked about during the interview and share your excitement about the potential to work with the company. A lot of jobseekers don’t make an effort to follow up. This small step can help you stand out from the crowd. 
These tips will help you kill it at your next interview. Use them to your advantage and get ready to succeed!
