Harvest is San Francisco’s radically new and innovative cannabis dispensary concept with a curated all-natural line-up of cannabis products presented in a comfortable retail setting. All the products stocked there are independently lab-tested.
At Harvest you can browse freely with no separation or counter between you and hundreds of top-shelf products. The knowledgeable and friendly consultants are super-helpful, and while visiting Harvest on Geary, we were fortunate enough to happen upon Curator Dylan Brewington.
Dylan left Arizona four years ago for California to pursue his passion to work in the wellness space, and it was very clear from our chat that he does not approve of selling substandard brands. Instead he opts for the high-end names, like Papa & Barkley, that he describes as “genuine cannabis”.
“It’s wonderful to see a product that’s made it through the recreational phase and maintained its medicinal integrity. This is a sustainable long-term solution for managing pain.”Dylan Brewington, Curator at Harvest, San Francisco.
Dylan acknowledges that brands like Papa & Barkley are perceived as a bit more expensive yet they’re repeatedly purchased. He explains why: “The whole plant infusion process used with Papa & Barkley products, comes into play. This brand’s topicals penetrate more skin layers that competing brands, so that makes for an easy choice. I use the Papa & Barkley Releaf Body Oil on my neck. Nothing works like it but my customers really gravitate toward the CBD-rich Releaf Balm.”
Dylan clarifies that he doesn’t garner satisfaction from making a sale, and that he could do that selling anything. Instead he prides his performance on helping people find wellness, and that Releaf Balm, and products like it, help him to do that. “It’s wonderful to see a product that’s made it through the recreational phase and maintained its medicinal integrity. It may cost a bit more, but it’s effective and goes further so you actually save money. This is a sustainable, long-term solution for managing pain.”
