99 High Tide – Malibu, CA

The Place

99 High Tide Collective, Malibu’s most popular cannabis purveyor, curates more than just the dopest strains for patients and the beachside elite. From the moment you enter the marijuana mermaid haven, tranquil vibes blanket the interior. Deity sculptures and CBD products are peppered amongst candles, jewelry, seashells, crystals, paintings and local artists’ wares adorn the reception area. A room with a massage table offers an escape for meditation and complimentary healing sessions before patients enter High Tide’s medicine room, where cannabis consultants await. The theme, lighting and design, including slow moving blue lights, nature photography and atmospheric music, were selected by owner Yvonne DeLaRosa Green “to feel like a mermaid’s cove, like a sanctuary,” and to maintain a “sexual and sensual mermaid healing vibe that appeals to [all].”

The Product

Perched behind the budtenders, the collective’s original chalkboard is one of the few vestiges remaining from 99 High Art—High Tide’s original Venice-based establishment that opened in 1998. Flower options rotate almost daily, including sun-grown, outdoor, greenhouse and indoor varietals, and, to the delight of many, often include the collective’s exclusive Coconut Kush, which was handed down to the owners by master grower Rich “Shiva” Shiraz. All medicines provided at 99 High Tide are organic and carefully selected by seasoned cannabis consultants.

The People

99’s commitment to quality care extends far beyond their expert staff and healthy selection of flower, and includes cannabis advocacy and pioneering new territory. Yvonne was “the first woman to get a license from L.A. County to sell marijuana,” and 99 High Tide is the first establishment to be awarded a cannabis business license for Los Angeles County. The collective routinely hosts beach clean ups in Malibu, and Yvonne states that 99 is the world’s first “upscale dispensary, hybrid dispensary . . . and only all-vegan dispensary.” With plans for expanded therapy services, a healthy array of CBD-rich products, and “the intention of higher consciousness and physical healing,” 99 also intends to become the world’s first CBD spa.
