Meet our founders
The Artist Tree was founded by Lauren Fontein, Avi Kahan and Mitchell Kahan. With more than 13 years of experience in the California cannabis industry, The Artist Tree team is passionate about changing how people experience cannabis. Their mission is to provide safe access to legal cannabis, raise awareness of the health benefits of cannabis, showcase artists from the community and break stereotypes surrounding cannabis sales and consumption.
Along with The Artist Tree, Avi and Mitch collectively control two local Pre-ICO dispensaries, The Green Easy and MMD Marina Del Rey.
We hope you enjoy getting high with us.
Being green is our thing. No really. We strive to recycle or compost all our waste and are working towards a 25% landfill rate in 2020. Our goal is to have a 0% landfill rate by 2022.
One of the ways we’re reducing landfill waste is by working with Encore Recycling.
With our new program, we’re helping transform the plastic used in growing cannabis into packaging for cannabis goods.
