On the corner of E. Camino Parocela and Gene Autry is a brand new dispensary The 420 Oasis. Featuring small batch brands, The 420 Oasis boasts a full inventory of indoor exotics, small batch outdoor, luxury concentrates, and unique edibles not found currently in the Coachella Valley market. All inventory items are fairly priced, and can serve those looking to try something new. Inside the interior of The 420 Oasis you are greeted by street art and luxury technology that changes the consumer’s experience. All items can be scanned by the computer technology and educate the consumer about the product. The dispensary is family owned by veterans of the Coachella Valley cannabis industry, and I had the opportunity to sit with CEO David Webb to chat about their upcoming grand opening event on Friday October 18th. Read on for the interview!
CV WEEKLY: How long has 420 Oasis been operating in the Coachella Valley?
Webb: “420 Oasis opened in October of 2019. However, Oasis was one of the first three dispensaries in Palm Springs back in 2009. We have completely updated and remodeled our system, but placing exquisite customer service as our top priority has never changed.”
CV WEEKLY: Why did you decide to open a dispensary?
Webb: “My family has been in the cannabis industry my entire life; it was just my natural path. My father actually owned the first cannabis school in Palm Springs and works closely with many world recognized growers. I come from a long line of cannabis advocates. After graduating from USC in 2018, I already knew what I was going to do.”
CV WEEKLY: Can you tell me more about the technology your dispensary implements?
Webb: “Definitely! We are introducing a new user friendly system to the Coachella Valley. Our interactive touch screens allow seasoned users to skip the lines and help themselves if they choose, while also providing less knowledgeable users ample amount of time to learn and ask questions. Simply put, we are able to serve more people and cut down wait times. Our storefront is state-of-the-art in the cannabis industry and the first of its kind in Palm Springs.”
CV WEEKLY: I’d love to learn more about your grand opening, what can readers expect from attending?
Webb: “Readers can expect something different than the traditional dispensary experience. Our Grand Opening event is a FREE CONCERT featuring Snow Tha Product, Yohan Marley, & Dizzy Wright. The first 150 at the door receive VIP bags filled with goodies from participating brands such as Gas House & Permanent Holiday! Availability is very limited so please show up early! The date of the event is OCTOBER 18TH!”
CV WEEKLY: Will your dispensary have daily specials? If so, what can readers look forward to?
Webb: “Our deals and specials change very fast depending on our inventory. However, please check our menu at The420Oasis.com for a full up-to-date layout of our specials.”
Webb: “I am a daily cannabis user and a huge advocate of its medicinal properties. It has played a significant role in my life and I am very blessed to be a part of the industry.”
CV WEEKLY: Where can readers keep up with your dispensary? Do you have social media?
Webb: “You can find at @The420Oasis across all social platforms.”
