Q&A with Caliva

1.Tell us a little bit about your dispensary? What sets you apart?

Our dispensary was voted the #1 dispensary in the nation by Business Insider in November of 2016 and it was an honor to receive this accolade. We started our retail space with the idea that cannabis retail doesn’t have to be a stereotype. Be you a seasoned user, a brand new user, or someone just returning to cannabis after an hiatus, we have a carefully curated product array that suits the needs of any level of cannabis user.

To be very honest, our style really sets us apart. Our dispensary is more reminiscent of a spa or a high-end surf store; a lot of reclaimed wood, greenery, and warm lighting. It’s pretty incredible.

2. Do you sell medical cannabis, recreational cannabis, or both?

We sell both medical and recreational cannabis.

3. What’s the buying experience like for consumers at your dispensary? What should consumers expect?

They can expect to shop just like they would in any other industry. We have educated budtenders ready to help you in store, a speedy and efficient delivery team, as well as the option to dip in and just pick up an order placed online.

4. What steps do you take to educate your customers?

From in-depth educational material, to informational product videos online, our desire to inform and educate customers is never-ending. We never put a product on the shelf that the entire retail team isn’t trained on. That includes the staff that runs our online chat service.

5. What payment methods do you accept?

We are cash only.

6. What are some of your most popular products? And where do your products come from?

We grow in-house and many of our most popular items come from right underneath the same roof where they’re sold.

7. What accolades and/or awards have you received?

  • Rated #1 Dispensary in the Nation by Business Insider
  • Rated Best Northern California dispensary Leafly

8. What else would you like consumers to know?

We stand by our motto of Happy Plants. Happy People. We love what we do at Caliva and our goal is to be the number 1 trusted brand in cannabis!
