7 of the Best-Designed Marijuana Shops Across America

7 of the Best-Designed Marijuana Shops Across America
It was inevitable that high design would find its way into a booming cannabis industry
By Nick Mafi
April 18, 2017

With each passing year, it seems the societal taboos around marijuana are slowly fading into thin air. Consider, for example, the following fact: According to a recent Gallup Poll, support for cannabis legalization in the U.S. is up to 60 percent—an all-time high. What’s more, 28 states and the District of Columbia have recently legalized medical marijuana. With that, of course, comes the potential windfall of new business for cannabis growers and sellers. Yet, there’s another group that should be added to the list of those who will benefit from this, and it’s not who you’d first come to expect: architects and interior designers. Naturally, as the industry grows, and competition stiffens, each company will look for an edge to bring in more patrons. And that includes smartly designed spaces. Although the industry is still in its early stages, AD surveys seven of the best-designed marijuana shops across America.

Can Cannabis Infuse Passion Into Retail? An Exclusive Look at Colorado’s Newest Premium Dispensary

1 Mar 2017

Medical and adult-use marijuana retail franchise Diego Pellicer is commonly referred to as “the Starbucks of weed” – a far cry from the image of shady, underground pot operations that has traditionally dominated public conception of the industry. In trend with the U.S. recreational cannabis retail landscape (which exists now in some form in eight U.S. states, plus the District of Columbia), Diego Pellicer (DP) stores provide a differentiated, formal, and decidedly premium retail experience. The second U.S. location opened February 14 in Denver following a $1 million renovation (the first opened in Seattle in October 2016) as an independent brand licensee focused on owning and operating legally compliant dispensary and grow operations.  I spoke with Diego Pellicer Colorado CEO Neil Demers about what goes into introducing a new retail format and CPG product to the mainstream retail landscape—and what traditional retailers can learn from cannabis.
