“It’s not for people who are focused on recreation and intoxication.”
Doist is a Los Angeles-based brand that sells precisely dosed pens of cannabis fused with other herbs and plants, and just last month, they opened their first-ever brick-and-mortar. The standalone 800-square-foot space feels like something out of the future, sporting eye-popping white from the floor to the ceiling. Everything is categorized and extremely organized, definitely tapping into a specific Abbot Kinney shopping experience of class and creativity.
The wellness brand decided to open-up-shop on “one of the most progressive streets in Los Angeles” to allow productive adults the opportunity to explore cannabis usage for certain ailments like anxiety, pain, and sleep issues. Chief Executive Gunner Winston emphasizes that the product isn’t a go-to for people looking to get #lit.
Only available to people 21 and older, the Dosist store offers several pens with straightforward names like Sleep, Bliss, and Relief. Each pen is said to have a different function depending on the ratio of CBD and THC, as well as the botanicals which are included like: Limonene (found in grapefruit, lemon, lime, and orange) which is said to have anti-fungal properties. Another is beta-caryophyllene, from rosemary and cloves, which is said to assist with anti-anxiety. The pens deliver a precise 2.25- milligram inhalable dose. Doist pens are around $40 and contain around 50 doses each.
