This Santa Ana Dispensary Wants to Change the Way You Buy Cannabis
There’s a new joint in town.
MedMen, one of the largest marijuana retailers in the country, opened its newest medical marijuana dispensary last month in Santa Ana, making its 3,000 square feet of retail space one of the largest dispensaries in the county.
The cannibis firm offers around 1,000 products, including concentrates, flour, edibles, canine/feline products and topicals.
“Our aim is to make this a true retail experience by being innovative and bringing in new products,” said Daniel Yi, 50, MedMen director of communications.
The store has iPads on tables so a customer can interact and learn about a product.
Tables have different products, such as edibles, with an iPad above it listing the price and logistics of the item.
Sealed jars containing marijuana buds have microscope lids and a slider that allows a customer to smell the product. An iPad tells the price, THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, content as well as the terpene content, which give the plants their scents.
“Most people just see a lot of THC and think, ‘Whoa, I’m going to get blasted,’ but the terpenes tell you what else is inside the marijuana, such as limonene, which is an anti-depressant and anti-anxiety terpene that you can also find in citrus rinds,” said general manager Roberto Gualtieri, 28.
