Celestial Buds is an independent cannabis store in Calgary. Owned and operated by Monica Dhaliwal, who had previously worked alongside her spouse in an apparel distribution business, the store opened for business on Feb. 13, 2019.

Dhaliwal has since translated her experience in building customer relationships to the cannabis industry, emphasizing the importance of listening to her clientele. It’s a tastic that has earned Celestial Buds a reputation for its bespoke service and friendly staff.

Quick Hit

This Calgary cannabis store boasts a tiny footprint but leaves nothing for want. Expect big smiles, ample selection, and personable service in-store.

Vibe

The small store offers an intimate experience without a hint of pretension.

Here, a customer service counter runs along the left side of this deep, narrow showroom opposite a trio of mounted digital menus. The store is otherwise sparsely decorated save for a few posters and sculptural light fixtures.

Customer Service

The store is designed to offer a fast and efficient shopping experience, but if customers want to stay and talk or get more knowledge, staff are happy to provide one-on-one consultations and make suggestions.

When it comes to recommending strains, staff will inquire about situational uses (Are you going to a concert? Do you intend to enjoy in a social setting?) and what consumers hope to achieve from their cannabis experience before tailoring suggestions.

Those seeking therapeutic benefits will be directed to a clinic or doctor, though Dhaliwal notes that many consumers come back and share such medical advice in search of similar products in the recreational market.

Some consumers have noted that prices here are especially competitive, which Dhaliwal attributes to being an independent retailer without the expenses and overhead of chain retailers.
