Discover Cannabis Paradise: Green Mountain High Road Dispensary & Smoke Shop in the Okanagan Valley


Are you seeking an unforgettable cannabis experience amidst stunning natural beauty? Look no further than the Okanagan Valley, a cannabis tourism destination like no other. Nestled in the heart of this picturesque region lies Green Mountain High Road Dispensary & Smoke Shop, a small chain of independent Indigenous cannabis and tobacco shops. Owned and operated by local high school sweethearts, Dion and Cynthia, this cannabis haven promises a journey of healing, community, and relaxation.


Embracing Indigenous Roots


Dion, a proud member of the Syilx Nation, has called the Okanagan Valley home his entire life. His profound love for cannabis and its cultivation is deeply rooted in his cultural heritage. Honoring the medicine within the plant, Dion and Cynthia's passion for cannabis led them to open three shops on Penticton, Osoyoos (Oliver), and Lower Similkameen First Nations land. Additionally, they actively invest in other Indigenous businesses in the north valley, demonstrating their commitment to empowering and uplifting their community.


The Journey to Healing


After moving to the South Okanagan during high school, Cynthia's life became intertwined with Dion's. She, too, developed a deep affection for cannabis over the years. Following legalization, she began managing one of the local shops on PIB land. However, their lives took an emotional turn when Dion's father was diagnosed with cancer. The devastating news became a catalyst for them, transforming their passion into a life mission dedicated to exploring the healing potential of CBD.


With meticulous research and unwavering determination, Dion and Cynthia opened their first shop on Green Mountain Road in Penticton, in March 2021. Despite challenges and adversity, their dream gradually materialized. Today, their journey is one of resilience and passion, built on the belief in the transformative power of cannabis.



The Community Hangout Spot


Green Mountain High Road & Smoke Shop is not just a dispensary; it's a community hub. Stepping into this warm and inviting space, you'll be greeted by friendly faces, the scent of BC-grown flower, and an ambiance that fosters connection. A fire, when permitted (except during fire bans) blazes outside, drawing friends and family, old and new, to gather and share moments of joy.


Cynthia cherishes the diverse array of people she meets throughout the year while managing the shop. In the summer, she delights in conversing with visiting Mexican orchard workers in her native Spanish language, fostering a welcoming atmosphere for all. Even in the winter, the shop remains abuzz with guests heading up to Apex Mountain Resort for skiing, snowboarding, or tubing, making it an ideal spot to unwind after a day on the slopes.


An Enriching Experience


At Green Mountain High Road & Smoke Shop, a wide array of cannabis products awaits enthusiasts. From BC-grown flower to pre-rolls, concentrates, and edibles, the selection caters to varying preferences and needs. Dion and Cynthia's expertise and passion ensure that every customer receives personalized guidance and recommendations.


As you explore the shop's offerings, you'll be captivated by their knowledge and enthusiasm, enhancing your cannabis journey. Whether you're a seasoned connoisseur or a curious novice, Green Mountain High Road & Smoke Shop promises an enriching experience.



Passing the Legacy Forward


Looking ahead, Dion and Cynthia are excited to pass on their legacy to their (now teenage) children. Their hope is that future generations will carry the torch, continuing to cultivate a sense of community and promoting the healing benefits of cannabis.


In the enchanting Okanagan Valley, Green Mountain High Road Dispensary & Smoke Shop stands as a testament to the transformative power of cannabis and the strength of community. Dion and Cynthia's commitment to their Indigenous roots, healing potential, and the joy of cannabis has made their shop an essential stop on any cannabis enthusiast's journey.
