I intended to transport to CA as well as start a dispensary for years, but the system didn’t come to fruition until years after I finished university out east. I had a close friend who was slowly turning into a venture capitalist as well as she had another friend who was a great marijuana grower. Three of us came together as well as started drafting ideas for a marijuana business. At the time, CA only had access to medical marijuana. There were attempts to legalize cannabis for recreational use, but they failed to garner enough votes in the end. When CA finally legalized marijuana for recreational use in 2016. By the end of the following year, the state had issued licenses to existing cannabis dealers to offer recreational sales as well as medical a singles. Since our friend’s family lives in Encino, we all made the executive decision to start a supplier closer to the San Fernando Valley instead of Los Angeles proper. ThoUnited Statesnd Oaks had real estate that was affordable for our marijuana business. Every one of us decided to go seed to sale as well as opened a grow facility on the outskirts of town by Moorpark before starting our unquestionably first dispensary store in the Conejo Valley. Now we have more than two separate cannabis dispensaries in southern CA as well as we’re considering heading north next. I can’t see myself leaving the Santa Monica mountains now that I get to see them out our entryway window everyday when I’m cooking or drinking our afternoon coffee. It’s not the cheapest site to live, but it beats being in Laurel Canyon or West Hollywood with their exorbitant rent rates.
