It’s a beautiful, peaceful day in Brisbane’s Gold Coast for the world’s first cannabis store
Updated November 18, 2019 05:33:20The opening of a world-first cannabis shop in Brisbane this morning was a perfect celebration for the city and for those living in the city.
The “first” store in Australia opened in Brisbane today, with cannabis sales starting at 5am and running until 7am.
The store, called Cannabis Cafe, is set to open to the public at the end of the month.
Owner Adam Condon said he wanted to make sure everyone in Brisbane knew the importance of the cannabis plant.
“It’s a plant that can help with a lot of things that we’re dealing with,” he said.
“Cannabis has some incredible benefits for health and for mental health.”
We’ve found out that in some parts of Australia, it’s actually associated with better mental health, better social support and more peaceful lives.
“There are so many different reasons why people use cannabis, so we wanted to be the first place to offer those benefits.”
Condon said the cannabis store was designed to be a community resource and had been designed to offer people the chance to learn more about the plant.
He said the shop would have an “authentic” feel and the shop owner would be able to provide advice on what to look for when buying cannabis.
“I wanted people to know how to choose a cannabis product, how to purchase a product, which strains to buy, how long to keep a product and how much of a quality product you should buy,” he explained.
Condon hopes the cannabis shop will help provide more “safe and healthy” places to buy and sell cannabis.
He hopes to have a cannabis market up and running within a year.
“The shop will be a place to meet, to shop and to have fun,” he told ABC Radio Brisbane.
“And we are looking forward to it, so look forward to that.”ABC Brisbane’s Daniella Tarrant has been covering the cannabis industry and the CBD for a number of years.
