While most cannabis dispensaries feature sterile or clinical decor, Colorado's High West Cannabis shop is more cozy in its look and feel. Resembling an elegant living room, the dispensary promotes comfort and relaxation with its layout -- consisting of an oversized couch, rustic wood coffee table, leather-upholstered armchairs, and a large shag rug.
Next to a comfortable lounge space, visitors can find the dispensary's front desk, and product sampling areas. Though accessible to consumers, these areas remain discreet, fitting with the retailer's overall aesthetic feel.
As marijuana legalization efforts continue across the United States, stereotypes related to the medicinal plant are being challenged. In addition to a variety of luxury cannabis offerings, design-conscious dispensaries like High West Cannabis are also on the rise -- illustrating just much this industry has evolved in recent years.
