rom the moment you glimpse the bright floral mural that wraps around the storefront to when you step inside, 365 Recreational Cannabis conjures feelings of joy. Inside the store, you’re warmly greeted by knowledgeable staff eager to recommend some of the highest-quality medical and adult-use cannabis products on the market.
Opened last year just as the pandemic began, 365 Recreational has built a thriving “365 Hive” under the leadership of owner and general manager Laniakea Evans and her talented team. An industry veteran who has worked in nearly every aspect of the cannabis industry, Evans has made diversity a hallmark of the store. Truly focused on community, Evans welcomes people from all walks of life to the 365 Hive.
That friendliness is paired with deep knowledge of products. The store’s well-trained staff receives continual education. Every budtender knows every product and works with individual customers to meet their needs. The store’s community outreach programs have made the store a valued part of the city, as they work to destigmatize cannabis and dispel myths.
“With COVID, we had to pivot a lot,” says Evans. “Luckily, we have a great team, and the Santa Rosa Community has been so welcoming.” For the store’s one-year anniversary on April 20th, the store is celebrating with a limited edition $4.20 gram. “Our team even designed the packaging for it!”
“We’re excited to see where this next year takes us,” says Evans. In an industry where only 37% of senior-level jobs are filled by women (according to a recent survey by the Marijuana Business Daily), Evans’s hard work certainly serves as a blueprint for others to follow.
The next time you are in Santa Rosa, stop by and experience 365 Recreational Cannabis for yourself.
