When it comes to setting any “Green” trends, the whole country seemingly looks all the way west… to California!
From electric cars to banning plastic bags to legalizing marijuana, California is one of the states that is in the
lead, if not the one setting the pace for change throughout the country.
As if the natural beauty of California isn’t enough, San Diego opened its first legal marijuana dispensary, A Green
Alternative, late last year. The dispensary itself sets the tone for what the industry should follow: you will find a
large selection of medical marijuana products of all types. The environment itself is impressively clean and safe
with guards at the entrance to ensure the safety of their employees.
However, the best part is that A Green Alternative took things a few steps further to deliver the ultimate client
experience. Just in case a client doesn’t feel like heading to the shop because they are tired after a long day of
work or perhaps they feel sick… the reason doesn’t matter. Using GoMeadow, the patient can place an order
and have it be delivered to their door… never having to step outside or change out of their pajamas. So, in essence,
the premier San Diego marijuana delivery service, pretty much!
Of course, the industry is in its infancy and is already showing great signs of progress. The legalization process is
the first step and with A Green Alternative creating a safe, clean environment for the rest of the city and state to
follow, things are headed in the right direction. But what else is amazing about California?
Most health trends seem to take root in California before they catch on with the rest of the country. In fact, if you
have lived on the east coast and then checked out California’s cuisine, you will notice a huge difference in the way
food is made there.
For instance, east coast’s version of Chinese food is way different than the west coast version in both flavor and
nutrition. The same can be said for Mexican food. Mexican food on the east coast is loaded with sour cream and
cheese (which makes it extremely delicious in a fattening way!) However, order Mexican food on the West coast
and it contains more guacamole, no sour cream if any, and very little cheese. In the same manner, one cannot find
New York style pizza in California (for the obvious reason, but still!) or any marvelous foods such as a stromboli or
If you are addicted to those foods, it takes a bit of an adjustments. If you start looking at the overall picture,
however, you will realize that most foods in California are prepared in a more health conscientious manner. You
will find more hiking activities (more activities, period!), fruits, avocado/guacamole, fresh seafood, and farmer’s
markets every where.
California is all about embracing nature, your body, health, a clean state of mind. While the rest of the country
complains about the housing market, Californians enjoy everything amazing this state has to offer its residents!
