On its way

Element 7, a company that owns several cannabis dispensaries as far south as Chula Vista near the Mexican border, will expand its reach into the upper most part of the state with the opening of a store in downtown Crescent City.

The company is planning to lease a portion of a former restaurant located at 105 N. Street, and will sell dried cannabis flower, oils, edibles, topicals, lotions and other legalized products.

The business received swift approval for a conditional use permit from the Planning Commission in mid-October and plans to open pending renovations to the building.

Retail hours will run from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Element 7 will occupy about 1,500 square feet of the 5,000-square-foot building, and will include retail and storage space, an office, utility room and restrooms. Improvements to the building will include the removal and installation of interior walls, display cases, security cameras, storage vaults, an air filtration system and interior facade improvements.

The dispensary will not be located within a 600-foot radius of the perimeter of a K-12 school or day care center, and will be required to comply with the regulations of the state cannabis regulatory agencies, including the Bureau of Cannabis Control.

In the event Element 7 violates its agreement with the city or city staff receives complaints from the community that it determines needs further review, the Planning Commission has the option to hold another hearing, implement penalties and amend or revoke the use permit.
