California and Canada Dispensaries Offer Chill, Upscale Boutique Vibes
Chill but far from crunchy, dispensaries in California and Canada have upscale-boutique vibes.
Project: Edition St Clair West
Standout: Dubbing itself “your best bud” and the “curator of cannabis,” this brand’s second Canadian outpost makes artful use of the industrial fiberglass grate, a cost-effective and quick-build substance, the 1,200-square-foot result alluding to luxury not with materials or finishes but by its memorable, pared-down setting.
Firm: Commune Design
Site: Los Angeles
Standout: Home to the Southern California debut of the Oregon company called the Italian word for greenhouse is a gut-renovated former parking garage, now filled with light and displays for vapes, edibles, and topicals in a luxe brass, white oak, and Carrara marble palette akin to what’s found in a high-end accessories boutique, aka “the Louis Vuitton of cannabis.”
Standout: With a name borrowed from
a weed-amount nickname, the brand’s 650-square-foot flagship is dense with organic materials: rammed earth for plinths and cash-wrap area, brick flooring and wall, walnut for edibles cabinetry, and Japanese paper in the Santa & Cole pendant fixture chosen for its resemblance to a rolled joint.
