    Hey there, Sungrown Community!

    Did you know – the best quick fix in the design world is, and will always be, a fresh coat of paint. Retail or residential, a new color will set the mood for your customer, become the perfect backdrop and let your product shine. Here is a quick lesson on choosing perfect paint colors. We’ve included inspirations and a few favorite cbd, hemp and cannabis dispensaries to give you a head start.


    There are two types of color in design, Primary and Secondary. Primary colors = neutrals and Secondary colors = accent colors. If you can stick to 80% neutral and 20% accent, you’ll create a great feeling for your customers. This rule applies to monochromatic (one color in many shades) or complimentary colors (check out a color wheel) . Either way, if you aim for 80/20 you will be able to add multiple colors without risking a crazy mix.

    Flora Terra, Santa Rosa, CA


    We love a good pop of color when it mirrors your branding & vibe. Check your logo and see what paint color can transfer to the walls. Flora Terra went with a rich evergreen wall paired with fresh white. Black and natural oak also become the neutral colors, highlighting the product.

    Benjamin Moore Super White & Feather Down

    Pairing a crisp white with a calm neutral. Subtle contrast highlights your product.

    Apothecarium, San Francisco

    Benjamin Moore Black Pepper, Hale Navy & Dove White

    Two deep shades with a softer white. The contrast is there without a harsh feel.

    Potters, Chicago – LAF

    Benjamin Moore Cheating Heart, Fiesta Yellow & Grey Owl

    A great accent paint color pulled from their branding & incorporated throughout the space.

    Repainting the dispensary will not be a scary thing if you remember the 80/20 rule and pick a paint palette that follows your branding. Ordering small paint sample pots & trying a test spot is another way to make sure you love our paint color picks before committing to the full dispensary retail space.
