Artisan treats are standard fare at pop-ups round these parts. But the temporary storefront brought to you by Altai and Dixie Elixirs is like none we've seen before: You need a medical marijuana license to shop.
Located inside Harborside Health Center, an Oakland dispensary, the well-respected brands have come together to sell their gourmet cannabis-infused edibles. Think Cherry Vanilla Soothers (pictured above), made with Bing cherries, Tahitian vanilla and sugar. Or handcrafted Chocolate Truffles, starring cocoa, organic heavy whipping cream and French vanilla-chocolate. And, uh-huh, both have that special (THC) kick.
The pop-up has been around for about a month now and will remain open as long as interest continues, according to a spokesperson. (Umm, this is the Bay Area—interest ain't fading any time soon.)
