The appropriately named Hi-Fidelity shop is located next door to the Northern California outpost of Amoeba.

Amoeba first applied for a license to sell cannabis in 2015.

Now a separate storefront, the space was formerly Amoeba’s jazz and classical room, which the company then converted into a separate building.

Though Hi-Fidelity has been open since April, the company decided to have a ‘soft launch’ due to it being the weekend before students at UC Berkeley started their spring semester.

Chris Garcia, “the new Curator at Hi-Fidelity” explains, “we’re trying to make this the best dispensary in the state of California.”

“We want to be a full spectrum cannabis dispensary. A hemporium, if you will, where we have everything from pet products to flower.”

“Music, in some ways, is such an uplifting product for humans,” shares co-founder Marc Weinstein, “and we thought, weed is just another inspirational product that we can get behind with our hearts and souls.”

Sounds dope.
