My husband and I recently spent several weeks in California for a vacation.
We spent several days in Beverly Hills, and I wish we could have stayed longer.
I was really excited to window-shop on Rodeo Drive and explore the fountains and rose gardens of the Beverly GardenS Park. My husband especially enjoyed touring the Greystone Mansion that was built in the 1920s and used for numerous films. We checked out Sunset Boulevard and the La Brea Tar Pits and took a bus tour that took us past a number of celebrity residences. The architecture, food and shopping in Beverly Hills is absolutely fantastic. I was surprised to come across a cannabis dispensary in the neighborhood. While shopping at a dispensary wasn’t included in our itinerary, we couldn’t resist. We are from a state where both medicinal and recreational cannabis are illegal. It was so refreshing to be able to show our identifications, walk right in and browse all of the different products. I was not expecting so many choices. While I was familiar with smokable flower, pre-rolled joints and blunts, gummies and brownies, I hadn’t realized there was such a wide selection of other consumption options. Just the menu of edibles was impressive. Along with chocolates, mints, candies and cookies, the dispensary offers a line of beverages. We could buy drink mixes, tonics, lemonade, colas, cannabeer or mocktails. For cannabis-infused topicals, there were ointments, salves, sprays, roll-ons, soaks and bath bombs. My husband and I both wished that we’d found the cannabis dispensary much sooner in our visit to Beverly Hills. We would have shopped there every day.
