How and when did your store start up?
The doors opened at 365 Recreational Cannabis on June 12, 2015. The store was originally located upstairs, but moved downstairs in order to better serve every customer when we went to a hybrid shop on July 1, 2016. Recently, 365 went through an expansion to spread its leaves a little more.
What’s the story behind the name of your store?
We are proud to call ourselves 365 Recreational Cannabis because we always have amazing deals guaranteed 365 days a year. Seriously, we are open every day.
What does your store offer customers that they can’t find anywhere else?
We try to provide great customer service, knowledge and products. We are always open to suggestions to carry other brands as well. As most of the staff comes from medical cannabis, we are happy to try to help and pay attention to detail for patients’ personal needs and desires. Daily deals and happy hour every day of the year and even bigger deals on holidays, gives you a chance to get something good and save your money while you’re doing it.
How has the cannabis industry changed since you have been in the business? Where would you like to see it go?
The industry has changed a lot since the beginning. A lot of progress has been made in production, and a lot more creativity is put forth for constant innovation. It’s fun seeing the new products that come to the market. I would love to see it continue to grow and be legal in all the states. It would be wonderful for cannabis to be seen as the amazing beneficial plant that it can be.
What are the biggest challenges you face in this industry as a store? . . . Biggest joys?
The different thoughts, opinions and federal regulations would probably be the most difficult challenge. With more research being done, it’s nice to see the progress that is being made in that regard. Our customers/patients are one of our biggest joys, being able to guide them to their perfect product for whatever the occasion. We love the satisfaction it brings to us both.
What is the one thing you want patients/customers to know about your store?
We always have medical consultants on staff. Our job is to help as much as we can, so we know the dietary information as well as the pesticides information and lack thereof for our customers/patients. Trying to read some of that print on packages is hard enough, let us do it for you.
If someone wanted to open a store and get their feet wet in the industry, what advice or counsel would you give them?
Research, research, research the laws and regulations, medical benefits, the variety of companies and the market as a whole, as well as only provide exceptional customer service.
What do you hope to accomplish in the cannabis industry?
We love to help as many people as possible. We want everyone to be happy, healthy and friends with one another.
