California cool will never go out of style, owed to its combination of timelessness and its willingness to evolve. Rather than playing host to rundown colonial and tenement era buildings and roads like much of the Eastern Seaboard, California’s later arrival to the Union came with a much more cohesive—but distinct—aesthetic and a lifestyle that continues to attract visitors and new converts.
This beautiful state is home to freedom of expression, freedom from cannabis prohibition, and even freedom from winter in a large percentage of its territory. That alone is worth a visit, if the busiest and most innovative cannabis scene in the world—based in Los Angeles—doesn’t grab you first.
LA is not the only attraction in SoCal— beautiful beaches, grizzly roamed mountaintops, and mesmerizing deserts are just the beginning. Let OLO be your guide through the state via our incredible dispensary partners.
Start in: Venice Beach
Find OLO at CAC Venice, Golden Bloom
California is home to some of the best workout classes—many of them outdoors. Get geared up with ACTIVE, and join a class! Try Stand-up paddle boarding, taking an extended ocean swim, or doing an improvised workout with the public equipment at the Boardwalk. If you’re more into flow, skateboarding and surfing are additional ways to enjoy the Venice vibe.
Then visit: Los Angeles proper; Hollywood
Find OLO at: Herbarium LA, The Higher Path, The Kind Center (TKC)
Still in the active mood? Take a hike up Runyon Canyon; it’s not basic if it’s new to you! Or you can get into the right gear to explore Southern California’s gateway to the cosmos: Griffith Observatory, with FOCUS. Place 10mg of this strip under your tongue to delve into exhibits about the universe—or join one of the Star Parties to put your knowledge to the test.
Group hangs are better with OLO’s 5mg SOCIAL strip. Have a Pretty Woman moment with girlfriends and (window)shop the streets of Rodeo Drive. Then head to the Grove for a plethora of unique pop-up shops, crepes, tacos, or even oysters, and plenty of entertainment.
End up in: Palm Springs, Joshua Tree
Find OLO at: Desert’s Finest, HOTN
Retreat to the quiet desert oasis of Palm Springs. Enjoy natural hot springs, facials, and more. Visit some of the top resorts, such as Two Bunch Palms, Parker Palm Springs, or swim at the Ace Hotel, where the sun sets with a snap of colors over the mountains. Alternatively, or after visiting Palm Springs, you can cruise to Joshua Tree. Once you’re parked for the day, let a 5mg slip of CHILL be your guide to rest and relaxation.
OLO is distributed in California and fits in perfectly to the Golden State lifestyle. Planning your next trip out West? Tag us on Instagram for a chance to be featured on our page!
