n the early days of cannabis legalization, the rush to open dispensaries was so fast and furious that little thought was given to the retail aesthetics and experience. But today, in an increasingly competitive market, retail design is beginning to take notice as a way to capture the hearts, minds, and Instagram stories of new cannabis consumers.

Just look at this Instagram post of an overzealous customer showing off his dance moves in Planet 13, a high-end dispensary in Las Vegas.

That Was Then, This is Now

The trend toward design-heavy retail aims to capture customers new to cannabis and improve the overall customer experience, according to industry experts.

Take improving the checkout experience through design, for example. Ron Throgmartin, the CEO of Seattle-based retail brand and retail development company Diego Pellicer Worldwide, said the company’s designs feature six checkout stations, wide aisles, and a dispensing system that allows the cashier to quickly get the product to the customer. “They’re not running out onto the floor or back into the warehouse to grab the product,” he said. “It’s right there behind them, so the flow and the execution of the retail sale are smooth.”

Why Diego Pellicer Worldwide Inc (OTCMKTS:DPWW) Is A Buy

By Jim Bloom Posted on December 23, 2018 ShareTweetShareEmailComments

Diego Pellicer Worldwide Inc (OTCMKTS:DPWW) has had an impressive year on the earnings front depicted by the second year of record-breaking sales.  The stock, on the other hand, has not had the best of runs having shed a substantial amount of market share.

Diego Pellicer Price Analysis

However, things are starting to look up for the stock, as the company continues to deliver robust revenue growth.  Investor’s sentiments in the stock have started inching higher depicted by high turnover in traded shares in the market.

The stock rising to six months high after underperforming for the better part of the year attests to a change in sentiments and prospects in the market.  Diego Pellicer has since bottomed out and as it, stands, looks set to start 2019 on a roll, as it continues to recoup losses accrued in 2018.

A 600% rally in the month of December alone affirms the emerging uptrend as the stock continues to turn the page after one of the worst routs in the market. After the recent surge, the stock faces immediate resistance at the $0.60 level.

The 10 Best Marijuana Stocks to Buy in 2019

The 10 Best Marijuana Stocks to Buy in 2019

Although marijuana stocks have suffered sharp losses recently, the overall industry is only growing in prominence.

By Josh Enomoto, InvestorPlace Contributor

Diego Pellicer Worldwide (DPWW)

We’ve arrived at the end of our journey regarding marijuana stocks to buy in 2019. In keeping with my loose tradition, I like to throw in an extremely speculative name. And don’t roll your eyes at me: you know you want to know!

The following idea comes from an InvestorPlace reader named Anthony. He asked my opinion regarding Diego Pellicer Worldwide (OTCMKTS:DPWW). My answer to him is the same one I’m giving to you, which is that DPWW stock is extremely risky. Aside from its distressingly low trading volume and market capitalization, Diego Pellicer lacks financial strength to convincingly pull off its licensing and royalties business model.

However, I’m intrigued with its premium branding business. Not that I would know, but Diego Pellicer specializes in high-class cannabis products. As companies like Origin House and Medmen have proven, cannabis users eschew quantity for quality. That could lead to a surprising turnaround for DPWW stock.

Or you can lose every cent that you put in.

Designing for the New Culture of Cannabis

Designing for the New Culture of Cannabis

Say goodbye to drab, institutional interiors and trippy accoutrements—top-tier designers are making the face of marijuana more beautiful, smart, and inviting

Since California voters passed a proposition to allow the use of medical marijuana in 1996, 30 more states and Washington, D.C., have followed suit. Of those, nine have also legalized it for recreational use. In October of this year, Canada became the second country to legalize recreational cannabis nationwide. (Uruguay did so in 2013.) And with it’s emergence from the shadows of the law, marijuana is getting a total makeover.
