The Artist Tree is a cannabis dispensary, hospitality and retail group that provides unique experiences for cannabis enjoyment in West Hollywood and throughout Southern California.

By fusing art with cannabis culture, we’re defining a new standard for art, learning, shopping, events and on-site enjoyment.

There are currently 3 Artist Tree retail locations open in Los Angeles (Beverly Hills), Los Angeles (Koreatown) and West Hollywood. Our smoking lounge and restaurant will be opening in West Hollywood in Fall 2021.

In addition, more Artist Tree retail and delivery locations will be opening throughout California in 2021.

The Artist Tree currently accepts payment via debit card and cash. Unfortunately, we do not currently accept credit cards due to federal restrictions on cannabis banking.

For customer convenience, we have an in-store ATM that accepts both credit and debit cards for accessing cash.

questions about cannabis in California?

This is where things get a little sticky (and not in a good way). While smoking cannabis is legal for anyone 21 years of age and older (or 18 and older for medical patients), it’s still illegal to smoke, use, eat or vape cannabis in public.

Public properties in California are off limits for cannabis consumption unless they have a special cannabis consumption license (like us!).

It is illegal to consume cannabis within 1,000 feet of a school, day care center or youth center while children are present. It is also unlawful to smoke cannabis in places where it is illegal to smoke tobacco.

Cannabis may be consumed in a private residence, unless otherwise prohibited by law. Property owners may ban the use and possession of cannabis on their privately-owned properties.

California state law prohibits cannabis smoking in public and in publicly owned buildings or land. You are legally allowed to smoke on private property (subject to any rules or restrictions set forth by your landlord).

In addition, you can smoke at licensed cannabis consumption lounges, such as The Artist Tree’s upcoming restaurant and lounge. Our restaurant and lounge is scheduled to open in late 2021.

Currently, onsite consumption is not allowed at the Artist Tree retail store.

The prices for cannabis flower and other products vary by location, quantity and product.

At The Artist Tree you can purchase a gram of flower starting at $5 and an eighth of flower starting at $25.

We also carry a range of concentrates, edibles, vapes, CBD products, pre-rolls, THC-infused beverages, topicals, pet products, accessories and other products. Prices vary.

The state of California and local cities place numerous taxes on legal cannabis.

Here is a breakdown of current cannabis taxes

Recreational (adult-use) customers:

  1. State excise tax for cannabis: 15%
  2. State sales tax: 9.5% (in West Hollywood and Los Angeles)
  3. City cannabis sales tax: 7.5% in West Hollywood; 10% in Los Angeles

Medical Patients:

Patients with a medical marijuana ID card (MMIC) or doctor’s recommendation save on some of the taxes above. This is a little confusing. Here are the details:

  1. All patients pay state excise tax (15%).
  2. Patients with a MMIC do not pay state sales tax (9.5%)
  3. Patients with a doctor’s recommendation (but no MMIC) pay state sales tax (9.5%).
  4. Depending on the city, medical patients may pay a reduced or no city cannabis sales tax
    1. In West Hollywood, all medical patients pay NO city sales tax (7.5%)
    2. In LA, all medical patients pay 5% cannabis tax instead of 10%

A recreational customer can purchase 1 ounce (about 28.5 grams) of flower a day and up to 8 grams of concentrates and manufactured products (including edibles, oils, extracts and other products) a day.

A medical patient can purchase up to 8 ounces of cannabis flower per day.

Yes. All customers at the Artist Tree are required to show a government issued photo I.D., like a driver’s license or passport, to verify their age.

California is one of 13 states where cannabis is legal for recreational use. It’s also legal in the following states:

  • Alaska
  • Colorado
  • Guam
  • Illinois
  • Maine
  • Massachusetts
  • Michigan
  • Nevada
  • Oregon
  • Vermont
  • Washington
  • Washington, D.C.

Everyone 21 years of age and older can legally consume cannabis in California, thanks to Prop 64, which went into effect on January 1, 2018. You don’t need to be a California resident to partake. Visitors are also welcome to shop, indulge and enjoy.

Adults 18 to 21 years old can also legally consume cannabis if they have a physician’s recommendation (from California or out-of-state) or a state of California medicinal marijuana ID card.
