SEATTLE, Sept. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Diego Pellicer Worldwide, a real estate and consumer retail development company that is focused on developing the world's first "premium" cannabis brand, and branded tenant Diego Pellicer Washington are opening Seattle's first quality cannabis store.
The luxury marijuana store will open on Friday, October 7, 2016. The team is excited to showcase the store and provide a comfortable space to educate consumers about high-grade cannabis products.
Named after the risk-taking pioneer, Diego Pellicer was a business and political leader amongst the island of Cebu in the Philippines. While others invested in the spice trade, Pellicer invested his fortunes in hemp. When a sugar crisis bankrupted many on the island, which lead to the Spanish-American War in 1898, Pellicer emerged as the largest hemp producer in the world. Today, Pellicer's great-grandson acts as the co-founder and is proud to pay homage to his great-grandfather.
"Our best of class stores will provide customers with a high-end experience currently unmet in the cannabis space," commented Ron Throgmartin, CEO of Diego Pellicer. "Diego Pellicer will be the premier brand for those seeking a high-quality cannabis experience. Beginning with our flagship store in Seattle, our knowledgeable marijuana connoisseurs will offer individuals a safe and comfortable experience as they present the best product available based on customer needs."
The Company's modern flagship store features six glass display cabinets which will showcase high-end cannabis accessories and products with cutting-edge technology allowing for an easy and convenient shopping experience. The 3,300 square foot space is modeled after an upscale jewelry store and is outfitted with granite floors, imported Spanish tile, handmade casework, custom-made hickory doors and massive chandeliers.
The store will carry an array of Marijuana & Marijuana infused products, concentrates, vaporizers, high-end glass products, grinders, torches and Leira & Gold Leaf cannagar: luxury for the cannabis connoisseur. Each cannagar is meticulously crafted with award-winning Gold Leaf Gardens flower, coated with solvent-free rosin oil and rolled in cannabis leaves using Leira's unrivaled hand-rolling process. Glass products include: Licit Glass, Zob Glass and Mathmatix Glass; Vaporizer products include: Pax by Ploom (herbal), CloudPens (extracts), DaVinci and Honey Stick; Diego's private label grinders made by Phoenecian Grinders and Vector pocket butane torches are available as well.
Alongside quality marijuana products, Diego Pellicer's responsible marijuana connoisseurs help create a comfortable space for customers to learn which products match their needs, whether recreational or medicinal.
