·6 min read

The four-day event celebrates Mankind's notable milestone, and brings the San Diego cannabis community together at one of the city's most popular dispensaries.

SAN DIEGO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / March 23, 2022 / GABY Inc. ("GABY" or the "Company") (CSE:GABY) (OTCQB:GABLF), a California consolidator of cannabis dispensaries and the parent company of San Diego's Mankind Dispensary ("Mankind"), is proud to announce the dispensary has served 1 million customers since first opening its doors in 2016. The dispensary, which serves tens-of-thousands of customers per month, is a cornerstone of the California cannabis community, and has garnered a stellar reputation as the bridge between traditional and new consumer in part due to its "no glass barriers" approach to cannabis, with a fully self-serve model and extremely knowledgeable retail cannabis consultants.

The event, lovingly dubbed the "One Million Stoned" celebration will bring the San Diego cannabis community together with experienced shoppers and cannabis first-timers for a series of education sessions, and customer give-backs.

The event includes:

  • One-on-one cannabis consultations with Mankind's top-rated cannabis geniuses.

  • Joint rolling masterclass with any purchase

  • Cannabis glassware cleaning from San Diego's Fresh Sesh®

"Mankind has been a pillar of the California cannabis community since its founding." said GABY Inc Founder and CEO Margot Micallef. "Customers from every walk of life visit the store each day - from tie-dyed seniors, to high-dose millennials, medical patients, first timers, wellness warriors and everything in-between. I'm immensely proud of the work our team does to meet the disparate needs of such a diverse clientele. I'm impressed how they can engage with experienced consumers and how patient and helpful they are with new consumers. I look forward to celebrating with the entire Mankind family."

In addition to the customer-giveback and cannabis education events, Mankind will also be celebrating the California cannabis cultivators that have helped establish the dispensary as one of the top destinations for cannabis in the state. The One Million Customer event will feature a highly curated menu from brands such as SOG Army (known for their Dutch "sea of green" cultivation technique), Cannabis Cup darlings Cannabiotix, Blueprint (which was hailed as "The most exciting summer launch of 2021 by LA Weekly's Jimi Devine), San Diego locals CLSICs, and more.

"The best part of my job is connecting the California cannabis consumers with the cultivators and brands that continuously set the bar higher and higher with new growing methods, extraction processes, and innovative breeding techniques." said Mankind's Purchasing Manager Zac Larson. "We've got a really special lineup planned for this event, and I can't wait to celebrate this milestone with the people that have helped put Mankind on the map."

However, readers should be aware that strict compliance with State laws with respect to cannabis will neither absolve GABY, or its subsidiary of liability under U.S. federal law, nor will it provide a defense to any federal proceeding in the U.S. which could be brought against any of GABY, or its subsidiary. Any such proceedings brought against GABY, or its subsidiary may materially adversely affect the Company's operations and financial performance generally in the U.S. market specifically
