Having the chance to provide career opportunities for the community is truly an honor.” 

  • B-Real said he is excited to serve the Tower District community. 
  • “We want the community to feel connected to the legacy of cannabis and how we have played a role and how we can support them,” B-Real said. “When we open a store, it becomes all about the people and ensuring they can trust our name and products as we want our customer experience to set us apart from the other dispensaries.”
