Cannabis, for many, has the ability to profoundly connect us. Eyes become fascinating, a smile infectious, joy leaps from us in celebration of our uniqueness while bonding us in brother & sisterhood with those who share the moment.
Okay Cannabis Experience engages guests
in a wonderland of shapes and colorful
environments that reframe the ordinary and
rekindle a sense of wonder. Celebrating a
broad ‘cannabis’ lifestyle — OKAY is not just
a cannabis boutique, but an uncommon
destination for exposure to knowledge, arts,
music, people and more.
Okay Cannabis Experience is a place to reset.
Reset our state of mind, mood, friendships, and
outlook. Personal growth comes when we jolt
our sense of the expected, shifting our
perspectives, as we welcome exposure to new
worlds—fresh ideas, empathy, and exploration
of the other. This reset may help us recall our
true North—our sense of timeless values,
purpose and love.
It’s time to party again, okay!? Everyone’s gotta get mashed from time to time and escape those routines. Break up the regimented conformity of our lives, put on that green sweater, and shake off our bound everyday selves. Okay grants permission to be—let the beast out with our best beasties!
We question the idea that cannabis is an escape.
Rather, it is our view that cannabis is a validation of the
moment, of one’s mood and disposition. We say, come
as you are. This is precisely where you are meant to be,
feeling as you do, right now. Hang out, the time is
yours, lean in, explore, no judgment.
We recognize that historically the BIPOC community
has been disenfranchised—penalized and incarcerated
—by cannabis. Today, OKAY resets this balance by
bringing an equitable slice of this budding industry to
lift these communities. We are 93% BIPOC owned
and work with justice involved youth to build our
dispensaries and provide opportunities to develop and
grow with them.
For most, the past several years have presented challenges we’d never experienced in our lifetimes. Cultural schisms, mortal pandemics, environmental doom, mental health crises, and righteous calls for a new social justice. Unsurprisingly, many of us are fnding ourselves - not feeling okay.
We are here to tell you: you are okay, that together we are all okay! That it’s okay to want to have a good time again, it’s okay if you’d prefer to be alone, it’s okay to feel sad, and it’s okay to feel content. You can be weird, energized, creative, punch drunk, ecstatic, introspective, outrospective. Scared, found, profound! The OKAY Cannabis Experience grants PERMISSION TO BE — no justifcation required.
In the words of Anja Charbonneau, Editor of Broccoli Magazine, “cannabis culture is not any one thing.” It’s a therapy to some, a good time to others. A joyful moment among our friends, or a personal chance to reset and recall what’s most important. Individually it can be a self-compassionate escape, while for those who have been disenfranchised—even penalized—by cannabis, it represents a chance for an equitable piece of a budding industry. Whatever it means to you, “it’s mine and it’s yours” but together it is ours. If you will, we are all unique hues under a colorful cannabis flag, expressing ourselves while belonging to a kind of cannabis nation.
What you make of cannabis is all you — fill in the blank, there are no wrong answers. OKAY validates, and you are validated.
We are a cannabis-lifestyle dispensary for experienced & cannabis-curious people seeking to reset our states of mind, friendships, and notions of social equity. While offering curiously curated recreational THC products, OKAY experience stores engage our guests in a colorful wonderland that reframes the ordinary and rekindles our sense of wonder.
