A couple of years ago, Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice, California was named “The Coolest Block in America” by the Editors of GQ Magazine. A valid qualification for a street that boasts some of the hippest retail locations in LA, on top of “niche-cool” boutiques and a “contemporary look” at beach gear: (think: mirrored sunglasses). You can even buy a retrofitted beach cruiser and receive a hip haircut on the street named after a late 19th century millionaire entrepreneur and visionary. More than a hundred years after he spent a fortune creating a replica of his favorite city, Venice, Italy, history is still in the making on the street GQ named a clear community mainstay.
Similarly, down the road in sunny Orange County, California, history continues to be made at Bud and Bloom. Established in 2016 under the city of Santa Ana’s Measure BB, the dispensaries’ owners had a “very precise vision.”
“We wanted to create an exquisite, professional environment where mature, discretionary patients felt welcome and at home,” says Aaron Herzberg, CalCann holdings partner and founding member of Bud and Bloom. Making the list of Top 10 Most Beautiful Cannabis Dispensaries in America, one might consider that vision attained. Together with a group of extraordinary storefronts across the nation, Bud and Bloom is on its way to creating a one-of-a-kind experience for their discerning customer.
“Demonstrating just how far we’ve come in a few short years of legal cannabis,” notes Brett Konen, author of Leafly’s Top 10 list, Bud and Bloom has found its place among dispensaries such as Serra, in downtown Portland, and Barbary Coast, a beauty of “exposed brick, mahogany accents, and brass-studded bar stools” on Mission Street in San Francisco.
So, for a moment, forget what you know about cannabis dispensaries. Gloomy, garish neon signs abounding. Imagine instead a quietly chic industrial space, featuring exposed brick and reclaimed wood. White marble countertops. Sleek Edison bulbs hanging from the rafters. Unmistakably Californian, Bud and Bloom has taken the stereotype and turned it on its archaic head. And that’s just the atmosphere. Offering top notch products, and an eager, warm, and engaging staff, B & B is ready for your every need - be it medicinal or holistic.
“We’re here to redefine the cannabis retail experience”, says Herzberg. “Our approach is to create an inviting selection and cultivate the customer experience with educated wellness advisors and high quality medicine.
We carry an extensive selection of products that ranges from Kosher Flower, CBD Flower, biodynamic farmed flower, to vapes, tinctures, pills, topicals, oils, and exclusive product like 1964 Supply Co. flower and prerolls.”
Reviewing all products for pesticides, dosing, taste, and effects ensures the highest quality service and product, to give the customer the highest quality medicinal care. “Upscale” and “cannabis” no longer have to be mutually exclusive, and with a tailored experience such as Bud and Bloom is willing to offer, the dispensary is at the forefront of the push to create passionate, holistic care in a legal environment for the members of the medical marijuana community to access the medications they need. Sounds like the top of the top to me.
Bud & Bloom is located at 1327 E. St. Gertrude Place in Santa Ana. For more information, call (714) 576-2150 or visit www.budandbloomoc.com
