How and when did your dispensary start up?
Theraleaf was founded when San Jose cracked down on dispensaries. We were the last one to get the license to operate legally (Title 6). We are about to start our third year under Title 6 [this month].
What’s the story behind the name of your dispensary?
San Jose was denying a lot of dispensary names. We came up with Theraleaf as a combination of therapy and relief—both things are deeply important to us.
What does your dispensary offer customers that they can’t find anywhere else?
We have the largest selection of concentrates of anywhere in San Jose. We also take into account that the patients in San Jose have a 19.25 percent tax. This means our everyday pricing is as low as we can possibly go.
How has the cannabis industry changed since you have been in the business? Where would you like to see it go?
We are definitely moving in a positive direction as a whole for the industry. I think if I had to narrow it down to one thing, its acceptance. Too many times have I seen people suffer in their day-to-day lives
What is the one thing you want patients to know about your dispensary?
We are here for you, from how we price the items to the patient interaction. People assume a lot of things about this industry. We are here to help clear the haze or confusion.
If someone wanted to open a dispensary and get their feet wet in the industry, what advice or counsel would you give them?
It comes down to two pieces of advice:
- Don’t let your lack of confidence keep you down. If you think you’re right for this industry, make it so.
- Be willing to learn, and have an open mind.
What is the most important thing you hope to accomplish while in the cannabis community?
We achieve our goal every day to be there and offer the best quality at the lowest price. As someone who was just a patient, that’s our main goal—to provide what’s needed to make lives better.
