Just outside Pasadena’s western edge, a new cannabis dispensary will throw a Grand Opening party Saturday spiced by giveaways, delicious food and “free swag” at its beautiful new store.
Velvet Cannabis will party down in Eagle Rock from noon until 5 pm at 1118 Colorado Boulevard, just west of Figueroa Plaza.
“We believe in putting people and their unique vibes first,” Eagle Rock Velvet Cannabis General Manager Priscilla Alkais told Pasadena Now. “By delivering the best dispensary experience coupled with a wide range of premium cannabis products from the top producers in the state, Velvet delivers an unparalleled shopping experience for every guest.”
Alkais said the public should stop by for the Grand Opening, where they can enjoy huge deals on their cannabis brands and a chance to win fun prizes when they spin “The Wheel of Weed.”
In a video, Velvet President and COO Matt Morea explained that with Velvet Cannabis, “you’re going to walk into a beautiful store that’s clean. We’re going to ask a couple of questions, understand what brings you in, and we’re going to do our very best to introduce you to some products that we think are going to solve whatever your need is.”
“The one thing I’m most proud of that Velvet does is create a safe space for everyone, no matter who,” Morea said. “They walk out happy, they come in with a ton of questions, and we give them that time that they deserve.”
Founded by Morea and Farid Harrison, both California natives, in 2018, Velvet offers an exceptional, full-service shopping experience.
Expect clean, airy and inviting spaces with a relaxed vibe and attentive staff, who can guide you through their menu to uncover the experience you’re looking for.
“Whether you’re a longtime enthusiast, patient or just canna-curious, we have something for everyone and we’ll make you feel right at home,” Morea said.
