Located in Orange County’s capital city of cannabis, Bud and Bloom has brought a new level of sophistication to Santa Ana. The shop opened on Black Friday of 2016, and has quickly created a serious buzz in the community. The shop itself radiates with pure taste, from the naturally distressed wide-plank oak floors to custom craftsmanship, giving the collective an upscale and welcoming presence. The natural light is what truly stands out here; they believe their clients shouldn’t have to feel like they’re in a dungeon to get what they need, and truly champion the feeling of warmth and openness. The living room design throughout the shop creates an atmosphere matched by no other dispensary in Orange County.
Bud and Bloom champions the health and wellness aspect of cannabis through the products they carry. The shop urges its patients to familiarize themselves with all their wares, so almost every product is laid out in the open, waiting to be picked up. Bud and Bloom doesn’t have budtenders, they have “wellness counselors” that provide knowledge and understanding during one’s cannabis buying experience. Their patient loyalty program offers monthly incentives, and when it’s time to check out, don’t worry about bringing cash—this shop takes plastic.
Shop owner Aaron Herzberg is no stranger to the California dispensary scene. His company, CalCann Holdings, offers the cannabis community thorough counsel, and his attention to detail is embodied in Bud and Bloom. The Chardonnay Moms of Southern California should look no further when it comes to their green grocery shopping. This store encompasses the best elements of the cannabis revolution: ending the stigma, and obtaining medicine via trustworthy, knowledgeable sources.
