A peek behind the doors of the Artist Tree’s new cannabis lounge

Cannabis consumption lounges are about to be everywhere, but right now West Hollywood is home to the only one in L.A. area.

The Artist Tree’s Studio Cannabis Lounge opened last month atop their three-story location on 8625 Santa Monica Blvd.

The lounge occupies the top two stories. Floor 2 features a trendy, restaurant-like seating area with a garden balcony overlooking the Rainbow District. The third floor is a wide-open, smoke-free space for comedy shows, musical performances, mixers, meetings and art exhibits. Non-cannabis food and beverages are available via Kitchen 24, Artist Tree’s neighbor.

On exhibit now are pieces by artists Sinister Monopoly, Billy Morrison, and Jessica Czarnecki, as well as a special exhibit by Skut.

The Artist Tree was created by Lauren Fontein, Aviv Halimi, and brothers Avi Kahan and Mitchell Kahan, long time operators of licensed dispensaries in Southern California.

The Artist Tree Studio Cannabis Lounge is open daily from 11:00 AM – 10:00 PM at For details on upcoming events and to make reservations visit TheArtistTree.com and follow @TheArtistTree on Instagram.

Amazing how you can smoke weed indoors and nobody worries about the complications from second hand smoke but not cigarettes. More hypocrisy from the leftist leaders wanting the tax money and their little duckling followers.

Many republicans want weed legalized as well.

But to address your point…these lounges are filled with people who *electively* go there to smoke or ingest THC products…so why would you be concerned about second hand smoke???

Such a silly and ignorant comment. But not surprising coming from the guy in Florida!

As you said in a different post, you’re obviously the ignorant creature living in a rent controlled housing unit that is triggered and trolling in every comment. No go clean up that pearl necklace your daddy got you.

You can’t even address your original misguided point. You just try and sling insults with no relevance.

Are you also outraged at cigar smokers getting second hand smoke at cigar lounges? 🤣

Thanks for proving my point again, you’re still triggered and trolling. Can’t you get any overtime to work at your menial job or are you like another of your ilk and just waiting for the next frivolous lawsuit to file?

What are you going on about? Your comment was about second hand smoke from marijuana…

Are you also worried about people in cigar lounges? Or smoking sections?

Amazing how Ill informed and divisive you are. No wonder decent people laugh at the far right.

If a place is a designated smoking area, you take your chances with second-hand smoke and patrons recognize the risk. No hypocrisy involved. If you actually read the story, you’ll note the third story performance space is smoke-free. Everybody’s happy.

Ugh!

“Cannabis consumption lounges are about to be everywhere, but right now West Hollywood is home to the only one in the LA area”. A veritable press release evidently designed for the stoner world to descend on Weho. Ugh!

The prices are very fair and they have really great specials. 50% off days on some really great brands and it more then covers the sky high west hollywood cannabis tax.
