Learn More About Our Team
Founding Partners Chris, Deborah, and Sonia are excited to merge their unique backgrounds to bring the community of Washington, NJ something special - a boutique dispensary that will improve life through creative arts, cannabis, and education.
At Dank Poet, we proudly infuse our brand with arts and literature. We know our visitors all have unique stories, backgrounds and preferences that direct their choices. This is why we call our customers “authors” and our budtenders “muses”; we want to partner with you on your journey with cannabis. In addition to offering a variety of superior products, our boutique will also offer a full line of accessories for your safe enjoyment of cannabis, as well as a wide array of educational materials to ensure our "Authors" are well informed.
Chris Caruso founded Dank Poet and began the process to open a dispensary several years ago. We received municipality approval, purchased the building, and are finishing the build out now with the intent to open in mid June.
