CannaBlogger’s Corner: What’s in a Name? Cannabist Brings “A Higher Experience” to San Diego

What’s in a name? that which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet, Act 2 Scene 2

What is in a name? Lately, more than Mr. Shakespeare would think. Our name is our identity; it’s how we tell people who we are. Since 2019, Columbia Care sought to provide cannabis consumers here in San Diego with the best products to fit their needs. After a while, however, as they grew, they felt the same had to grow with them. People just weren’t getting the message.

So what do you do when this happens? You know you have great products and great people, and you want everyone to know it. You keep the best parts of what makes you unique, and you fix the rest to stand out from the crowd. They didn’t just slap on a coat of paint and call it good; they grew their brand along with them, and thus Cannabist was born like a phoenix rising from its own ashes. OK, maybe that’s a little too dramatic, but you get the idea.

Cannabist held their Grand Re-opening on Saturday, August 21st, 2021, to re-introduce themselves to San Diego and show everyone how they can compete with the big dogs. I got to talk with Erick Rodriguez, Regional Manager for California, Chris Ras, West Coast VP for Columbia Care/Cannabist, and a plethora of vendors who are all about bringing the best, highest quality cannabis to the San Diego market. The budtenders aren’t just there to sell you weed and get you high; they’ve been trained to help the cannabis customer, whether medical or recreational, get the exact high they want in the way they want it. Cannabist is truly creating “A Higher Experience” in the San Diego cannabis market.
