Company Introduction:
A pioneer in the cannabis industry and in operation for over 10 years, The Purple Lotus is responsible for creating many of the best practices used in the cannabis industry today. The Purple Lotus story started in 2010, when our founders, cannabis patients, became frustrated with the lack of Customer service and variety of options available at the dispensaries they visited and decided to open a modest operation in San Jose. In 2010, shortly after opening for business in a 600 ft2 medical office with $1000 worth of cannabis flower and their home made “Pot Brownies,” Purple Lotus gained national recognition by winning a medal at the first ever High Times Cannabis Cup in the US.
Over our many years of operation, we have become known for exceptional Customer service, dedication to patients and community involvement. Purple Lotus’ journey then included an office space at on Lundy Ave and a location at 903 Commercial St, very close to our current state of the art cannabis retail and cultivation facility at 752 Commercial St.
While Purple Lotus has served over 3,000,000 people since then, we have never forgotten the principles we were founded on. We stay humble, display excellence and exude resiliency. Our commitment to providing the highest quality cannabis for all budgets and passion for providing the most satisfying Customer experience has only strengthened through the years. We are dedicated to ensuring that every Customer who purchases cannabis from us feels wonderful about their purchase and that the experience of us providing the cannabis to them is an experience that ensures we help to make their day and world better.
