MEDMEN: Inside the Collective of the Future 1

The Place

Placed conveniently in the heart of West Hollywood, MedMen’s second dispensary carries the elevated and highly approachable aura that the company has championed in developing over the years. One of the coolest parts about this shop is that anyone over the age of 21 is allowed to come into the shop and look around (purchasing requires proper medical validation). This open-door mentality coupled with the shop’s convenient layout and calming décor delivers an unparalleled dispensary experience. The progressive and modern technology compliment the warmth of the walnut tables that line the shop’s floors, displaying the wide range of products they carry.

The People

The MedMen family is compiled of some of the most hospitable and genuine people in the cannabis community. Because of their open-door policy, the professionals at this West Hollywood shop are eager to help educate their guests and deliver the highest quality of service. The budtenders must first pass through extensive training right when they are onboarded, ensuring a pedigree of knowledgeable expertise. The crew is heavily involved in the community, annually holding a booth at the Los Angeles’ Gay Pride Event, as well as donating monthly to Being Alive—a foundation for those living with AIDS.

The Product

MedMen has become a household name in the cannabis community for a plethora of reasons. Cavaliering in convenience and class, the shop showcases top-level products and variety to meet consumer needs. The tables are lined with iPads that display beautiful graphics of the products as well as helpful information, leaving guests with a strong sense of comfort in knowing exactly what they are getting. Perhaps the dopest aspect of the shop experience is the strain-identifying, color-indicated Bud Pods that give the consumers a safe and close way to examine their desired herb. With a magnifying glass to closely observe their premium marijuana, and an open chamber to measure the aroma, the innovators at MedMen are changing the game swiftly.
