CannaBlogger’s Corner: New Brand, Who Dis?

Welcome back to another episode of CannaBlogger’s Corner! This week, I was invited to get a behind-the-scenes look at Cannabist, the dispensary formerly known as Columbia Care, in PB. They’re one of the many San Diego businesses that took the opportunity during the pandemic to reinvent themselves. I got to chat with their head of marketing and community outreach, Carolyn Kates, about their house brands (they have several), their business model, and how they plan to re-invent the term “corporate cannabis” in the best way possible.

I also got to fanboy a little over meeting one of my biggest influences in the cannabis industry, Christina “The Canncierge” herself. It was great to finally meet her in person and share this experience (and discount code) with her.

You can find Cannabist at 4645 De Soto Street, San Diego, CA 92109.
