Hipster Los Angeles Hotel Plans On-Site Marijuana Store

While it won’t be available via room service, guests at the West Hollywood outpost of the Standard may soon be able to head downstairs in their pajamas to purchase a sweet treat with a little something extra. Lord Jones, an L.A.-based luxury cannabis brand, has plans to open a retail shop inside the Sunset Boulevard hotel next year. Here, it will sell a selection of their signature products, which include naturally flavored fruit gumdrops, chocolates and body lotions boosted with CBD — a non-psychoactive and painkilling component of cannabis. This all relies, of course, on the company securing an adult-use, retail cannabis license from the city of West Hollywood, a process that will begin alongside the rest of the state in 2018. “The Standard is proud to be at the forefront of this cultural shift, becoming the first hospitality company to enhance our guests’ experience in this manner,” Amar Lalvani, CEO and managing partner of Standard International, said in a statement. “Cannabis is gaining enhanced relevancy as a key component of wellness, awareness and discovery.”
