D2 Dispensary – Tucson, AZ
D2 marks the second location for the Downtown Dispensary model, a comfortable, contemporary cannabis facility featuring a spacious product floor and deli-style bud service. After years of success, D2’s patients were clamoring for a D2 location closer to home. Their requests were answered August 8th of this year with a newly renovated, highly accessible space over 20 miles from the original downtown location. According to Director Moe and the Department of Health Services, “The Tanque Verde CHAA (Community Health Analysis Area) in Tucson has one of the highest densities of cancer patients in the entire state of Arizona,” making it the “ideal placement for their new addition.”
The upbeat staff was friendly and greeted me as I came in. Check-in was quick, easy and painless. Escorted by D2 Manager Sabrina, I was taken back to the expansive product floor and toured their healthy selection of flower, concentrates and infused products. Sabrina explained that their staff was “…dedicated to helping you choose the right medication to fit your needs.” She guided me through their selection, making recommendations on products I was familiar with such as Baked Bros and Firebrand, and a few I wasn’t, like their exclusive line of iLava and MedLava products featuring concentrates, vape oils and topicals “made from the highest quality raw materials.”
I went with their specialty brand and picked up some MedLava White Buffalo Sativa Live Resin and an iLava THC/CBC indica cartridge, both of which showcased their extraction process. Most intriguing was the iLava Touch, an artisanally-crafted, fast-acting essential oil topical gel that admirably relieved my muscle pain and inflammation. The line was inspired by the passing of D2 Director Moe’s mother, who suffered from stage four breast cancer—a true testament to their ethics and dedication to community.
