Anyone else feeling super stressed out?! These unprecedented times have caused a dramatic shift in our society — social distancing can bring on bouts of loneliness while constant news updates light up our phones 24 hours a day, inducing fear and anxiety. We’re all searching for ways to navigate a new work-from-home routine, and trying to stay healthy both physically and mentally… it’s a lot. It probably comes as no surprise that Sweet Flower, a Southern California cannabis dispensary, has seen a rapid rise in sales.

Though Sweet Flower has beautiful storefronts throughout Los Angeles (Melrose, Studio City, and DTLA), it’s their swift and sanitary delivery services that are helping Angelenos find a sense of calm this week. They have extra safety precautions in place: each product is sealed, packaging is sanitized before handoff, and delivery drivers have hand sanitizer in each car, along with washing their hands in between each interaction. And in an addition effort to protect both customers and staff, Sweet Flower has implemented curbside pick-up at each of their store locations. Customers can call the store and park outside with their ID to receive their respective orders. 

There are many ways to enjoy cannabis products: edibles, like chocolates and tea, herbal tinctures, topical creams and ointments, and pre-rolls and vapes. It’s important to distinguish between THC and CBD as well: THC, which is short for tetrahydrocannabinol, is the psychoactive component that creates a euphoric high, helps ease pain, and encourages relaxation. If you’re new to cannabis products, you might be intimidated by THC so CBD would be a great place to start. It is a non-psychoactive compound with many therapeutic benefits like helping to reduce inflammation and anxiety, but most importantly, it won’t get you high.

If you’re new to this world, Sweet Flower’s helpful staff is just a phone call away to help answer any and all questions. You can feel confident and comfortable in your product choice, and secure knowing it’s being brought to your car or doorstep in a safe and sanitary way. Stay calm out there, friends!
