The Artist Tree, the latest cannabis retail space to set shop in the City of West Hollywood, is having their grand opening on Friday, November 22. The new space has taken over the Front Runners location across the street from 24-Hour Fitness Sport.
Located at 8625 Santa Monica Boulevard, The Artist Tree will offer recreational cannabis sales, medical cannabis sales, cannabis delivery, operation of a cannabis lounge offering edible products, and operation of a lounge where cannabis smoking and vaping is permitted, and edible products can be consumed. It will also house a rotating art gallery with original works featuring California artists.
The opening exhibition at The Artist Tree features a variety of visual arts paired with cannabis memorabilia that encourage conversations about the fusion of cannabis and elevated art. The exhibition includes original murals, mixed-media and works by Monica Ahanonu, The Couto Brothers, Ellierex, Noah Emhurt, The Art of Chase, Jake Vanden Berge, Claude Morais, Jahlil Nzinga, Jay Shells, Cody The Creative and more.
The cannabis retail and arts space will also offer a cannabis learning center. The Cultivation Learning Center will take place in 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.
“Cannabis makes concerts, museums and pretty much everything, more fun,” says Lauren Fontein, co-founder of The Artist Tree. “The Artist Tree will enhance your perception of the arts and change how you experience cannabis. 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.”
The flagship retail store will offer a variety of cannabis products – vape cartridges and topicals, edibles, CBD wellness products, craft strains, premium concentrates and pre-rolls. Featured brand products will be showcased in secured custom display tables designed to allow The Artist Tree’s certified Guides to assist customers with walkthrough consultations and product interaction. Interactive touch pads for ordering products and large digital screens are positioned throughout the retail showroom with built in product and brand information. A secondary sales area and lounge is available for private
consultations and personalized concierge experiences for individual guests or small groups.
The first 100 visitors that post about @TheArtistTree on Instagram on opening day will receive a limited-edition hat. During the first day, 10% of all sales will be donated to Project Angel Food. A ceremonial planting will take place opening night in the Cultivation Learning Center.
