The Coachella Valley’s reign as the center of bohemian elegance is about to get another jewel in its crown as Royal Highness Cannabis Boutique, a high-end dispensary has opened in Palm Desert. Located among upscale stores in the world-famous El Paseo Shopping District, Royal Highness will be an upscale retail boutique featuring luxury cannabis products along with tabletop decor, jewelry, clothing, and accessories.

Royal Highness was the vision of co-founders Keyva King and Megan Stone.

“As a female-owned brand, I wanted the space to be avant-garde for a dispensary,” said Stone, whose firm High Road Design Studio designed the space. “I wanted it to feel elegant and inviting, without being too feminine. We want the space to welcome our customers, men and women, locals and tourists, as if they’re modern royalty.”

“There are pot shops and then there’s Royal Highness,” according to King. “The business model of most dispensaries is to get customers in and out quickly – it’s all about efficiency. Our philosophy is a bit different as we want our customers to take their time, browse around the boutique, pick up a few gifts and really enjoy the experience.”
