Cannabis Branding: Differentiating Your Dispensary

A good dispensary does not just providing a product, but an entire patient experience. To help you understand and visualize your intended experience and narrow in on the smallest of details, it’s best to view every touch point through the eyes of your patient or consumer. What do they feel, hear and see the moment they walk through the doors? Does your website provide a similar experience? How does your staff dress? Does your interior design match your brand?

Why Dispensary Interior Design Matters

Your brand is a living, breathing entity that provides a particular experience and evokes emotion from your consumers. That's why it's so important for dispensaries to care about branding and design — especially when it comes to their interior space.
