Alex Howarth grew up in B.C. Although her passion to work in the music industry led her to move to the U.K, when it came to putting down roots, Toronto was destined to be home.
Currently working at Queen West located Dimes Cannabis store, Howarth says the highlight of her job has been “to build a space that is part of the community feels very special in a time when we are forced to create a new form of comfort and normalcy.”
Here, she talks about products that come close to the world-famous B.C. bud, what customers are buying and how to go about combining music with cannabis for a truly creative experience.
Home away from home
Toronto feels like home but I will always have a soft spot for the west coast and their approach to cannabis. Simply Bare is one of the licensed producers that always comes to mind when wanting to connect with my roots, with their growing facilities so close to where I grew up and the care they take with their products it feels very natural and comforting to me.
We have so many different demographics visiting our store, the community that surrounds us is diverse and that really has come through in the people that have gravitated to our shop. We will always have something for everyone, but we also have a high focus on quality and craft products. Our clientele has really gravitated towards the higher THC craft products we carry like BLKMKT Cherry Punch, BLLRDR Afghani Bullrider, and Carmel Garlic Breath.
We are noticing more people are treating themselves to higher price point products and want to experiment with different consumption methods. Our edibles, like the Wana Sour Mango Soft Chew and Olli Brand Dragon Fruit Chews are getting great feedback from our regulars as well as the BIG Critical Lemon Rosin. The staff is also big fans of the Color Cannabis Mango Haze for that relaxed smoke.
