Seniors learn benefits of cannabis

Because of the purported medical benefits of marijuana, many are questioning why the legalization of cannabis took so long. While the ‘just say no’ attitude of a reluctant older generation blocked marijuana’s acceptance for decades, the industry is quickly realizing that many of today’s senior citizens are just as interested in cannabis as their grandchildren.

Top Dispensaries in California

From The Earth named A Top Recreational Dispensary in Los Angeles

The team at From the Earth is proud to announce we have been selected as one of the 20 Best Recreational Dispensaries in California.

From the Earth’s 1,000+ item inventory includes flower, concentrates, tinctures, topicals, accessories, vape pens, and edibles. The Port Hueneme location is Ventura County’s first adult use dispensary — “adult use” being industry-speak for “no doctor’s note necessary” — and has seven budtending stations with jarfuls of Henry’s Fire Haze, SDStrains’ Blue Dream, and EmberValley’s Orange Peels.

From The Earth on New Years

Seven cannabis dispensaries there will be able to start selling pot to California adults Monday morning — and they’ll be the only such shops open for business in the Greater Los Angeles area.

Permits for those shops were issued over the weekend as state and local officials, and cannabis business owners, sprint toward the opening of California’s legal cannabis market.

As of Friday afternoon, the state had issued 47 permits for recreational marijuana retailers, and two shops in West Hollywood were the only ones in Greater Los Angeles. Those shops, plus a third West Hollywood dispensary licensed over the weekend, won’t open until Tuesday.

That makes Santa Ana the only New Year’s Day option, unless buyers are willing to trek to San Diego or the Palm Springs area, where several shops are licensed to begin recreational sales on Monday.

Dope Magazine : FTE is Classy & Exclusive

The City of Santa Ana collective, From the Earth, offers visitors the ideal trifecta of services. With a welcoming environment, knowledgeable staff and superior products, it is a must see and smoke.

From the Earth opened about seven months ago, with co-owners Jayson and Kintu. Dave, one of the shop’s general managers, spoke to DOPE about their goal of creating an environment mimicking nature.

“We were going for an all-natural look and feel,” Dave shared. “We tried really hard to use just organic materials. Wooden floors lay throughout. There’s a hanging garden and a 30-foot-tall ceiling with a painted mural of the sky.”

Friendly and intelligent staff members greet visitors throughout the clean and comfortable store, with a focus on one-on-one service. iPads are available for taking orders as well. Plenty of parking is another plus here, assuring your visit is smooth and stress-free.

The products offered are stunning, as the collective aims, “to be like Whole Foods when it comes to product selection.” Seek and one shall find vape pens, topicals and a variety of edibles such as ice cream, bacon breakfast cereal and, “everything you can possibly imagine,” Dave explained. The collection of concentrates is also impressive, and each and every strain and concentrate is sent out for testing. Some of their strains are also exclusive—found nowhere else.

“We have a refrigerator that is just filled with concentrates,” Dave told DOPE. “We have our own in-house concentrates. I would guess that our dispensary has the largest selection of solvent-free concentrates in all of Orange County. With our solvent-less extracts, we are killing it down here. No one has the fridge that we have.”

Each staff member was carefully selected, in order to recommend precise product fitting for each customer’s unique needs. “We have a couple of them who are Stephen Hawking-level experts,” Dave joked. “We have training seminars when we bring in all the budtenders—in order to be constantly educated and giving the right information. Overall, we are very focused on assisting each person with their unique needs.”

From the Earth is a city and state licensed collective, measure BB compliant. Located at 3023 S. Orange Ave. Santa Ana, CA. https://fteoc.com/.
