Here’s an interesting story that could be of use to Michigan’s cannabis heavy communities. We’ve long held that Detroit can & should become Cannabis City USA, though the city government seems to have decided that there’s no hurry for Detroiters to get into the market.
WeHoville reports on the the launch of Emerald Village West Hollywood, billed as “the world’s new center of cannabis culture”:
The Emerald Village will draw tourists and locals alike to experience innovative cannabis attractions including culinary, wellness, nightlife, entertainment, and art.
…”Emerald Village businesses stand on their own unique merits, but our cooperative, City-wide focus on new cannabis experiences makes West Hollywood the first choice for global cannabis tourism,” Emerald Village Board President Jake Stevens added. “West Hollywood historically normalized safe cannabis consumption so it is fitting that our City is ushering in a new era of personalized, elevated cannabis experiences across the entertainment and wellness spectrums.”
…Today, West Hollywood boasts one of the highest rates of cannabis dispensaries per capita in the world, is home to one of the first cannabis retail stores to open in the state of California and is home to some of California’s leading medicinal and wellness cannabis businesses. West Hollywood is also known for being the first city in the United States to open a cannabis café and consumption lounge.
Visitors will encounter a variety of refined cannabis experiences in the Emerald Village including social lounges that feature curated teas and plant forward menus, edible dining with live music and art, personalized wellness rituals (bodywork, acupuncture, nutrition therapy) and integrative physician services at cannabis wellness studios. Retail businesses offer in-store art exhibits by international and local artists alike, sustainably produced cannabis products, bespoke VIP services and a wide range of high-quality pleasure products designed to help you explore the enjoyment that can be found in West Hollywood’s vibrant (and safe) adult scene.
