High Sierra June Lake is the first adult use cannabis dispensary in the June Lake’s history.
Owners John and Mira DeCoster held a “soft-opening” on Tuesday, January 1. The store is located in a room the size of a bathroom in the same building as John’s custom car stereo business, Insane Audio.
There’s one display case containing the products, one point-of-sale system, and one shelf displaying t-shirts, mugs with carabinier handles, lighters, and titanium bongs that come with a lifetime warranty.
John called the company and the storefront “boutique.” He’s permitted by the county to expand into the rest of the building, but he doesn’t have a timeline as to when that could happen.
Like JLB does craft beer, the High Sierra does craft cannabis. High Sierra has collaborated with a flower (the term of art for “bud”) producer to create three unique-to-June strands: June Bloom, Bodie Ghost and Gnome Zone.
The DeCosters sell pre-rolled joints for $10 a pop. There’s a pack of six of pre-rolled joints, which DeCoster said contain may be “the best weed in the world,” for $50. There are whole bud vape liquids, and a CBD laced balm that apparently makes the body tingle.
Customers who present a June or Mammoth ID receive 10% off.
High Sierra is open Friday through Sunday.
