A new cannabis retail and arts space, housing a dispensary and delivery service along with a rotating gallery of local art and a cannabis learning center opened Friday, November 22, at 8625 Santa Monica Blvd in West Hollywood.
“The Artist Tree is a portal to experience California’s incredible art scene like never before with original works from California’s most inspired artists and a wide range of the freshest cannabis products to hit the market,” according to a press release.
“Cannabis makes concerts, museums and pretty much everything, more fun. The Artist Tree will enhance your perception of the arts and change how you experience cannabis,” says Lauren Fontein, co-founder of The Artist Tree stated in the release. “Art of all kinds and the best cannabis product available are integrated with interactive educational hubs throughout the space. Shopping with us is an immersive experience unlike anything in the world.”
In a pre-opening publicity pamphlet, The Artist Tree noted, “The cannabis retail and arts space will house a dispensary and delivery service, a rotating gallery of local art and a cannabis learning center. The most striking education hub is the beautifully designed Cultivation Learning Center, a 10 x 15 enclosed glass room, highlighting cannabis clone plants at various stages of their development. Guests will be able to walk through the glass cube and visualize the entire craft cannabis production process with cloned plants.”
“For LGBTQI people who use cannabis for medical or personal use, and more-so especially for Queer Artists, the opening of The Artist Tree will offer another outlet to showcase their creations,” a spokesperson for The Artist Tree told the Los Angles Blade Friday.
