Spanish cannabis club enterprise The Cali Cave is continuing to grow from strength-to-strength. Danny Mowlds two Cali Cave venues have been receiving more and more exposure thanks to the social media activity of its famous patrons, which include some of the best-known rap talents of the modern era. So, why is that the case – we talk to Mowlds to get the lowdown.
The most sought-after strains
One of The Cali Cave’s biggest selling points is its wide range of unique exotic strains sourced from places including California, the UK and Spain itself. Some of the strains on offer at The Cali Cave are unavailable anywhere else in Europe, including the continent’s former weed capital The Netherlands. Sources whose strains can be enjoyed at The Cali Cave include West Coast Cure, Jungle Boys and Gold Label Distribution, which is part-owned by Danny, the venues’ founder. Flavours currently available at The Cali Cave include Raspberry Gelato, Masomoto, Yamaguchi and RS11.
Cali Cave culture
Danny Mowlds is still just 24 and comes from the inner city of Dublin. His first Cali Cave venue was opened in 2018 in Orihuela Costa before the Benidorm club opened its doors. Now not only a smokers’ club, The Cali Cave is also home to a record label and a clothing line. Meanwhile, a Cali Cave recording studio is currently in the works. Rap figureheads including Jun Tzu, Scouse Tremz, Meekz Manny, Icy Narco and Charlie Sloth have all visited Cali Cave, and many of them have praised the club on social media, recording videos in the club and sharing them to tens of thousands of followers on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Charlie Sloth support
Jun Tzu has released a track named after the Cali Cave on social media. The track was featured on the influential GRM Daily channel and has been played by Charlie Sloth. Tzu is a long-established rapper that has always pushed for the legislation of cannabis. The track’s lyrics talk about the club itself, the exotic strains it stocks and the increasing popularity of cannabis in Spain.
50 exotic strains
There is an increasing demand for well-facilitated, luxury venues where cannabis can be openly enjoyed with fellow smokers. The club is named after the state of California, which has long been synonymous with weed and was the first state to legalise cannabis for medical purposes in the mid-1990s. Many of the strains available at The Cali Club can’t even be sourced at the leading Amsterdam venues. The menu is updated regularly and there are up to 50 different strains in stock at any one time. Strains are sourced not only from acclaimed Californian growers but those located in Spain and the UK too. A growing number of tourists visiting Spain are now making visits to the Cali Club a central part of their itineraries.
A smokers’ nightclub
The Cali Cave has often been described as a ‘nightclub for smokers’ due to the vast investment that has been poured into it, it’s high-quality facilities and regular live performances. Visitors to the club can enjoy activities including gaming on the Xboxes, playing pool, watching Netflix and many more. Spanish Right to Privacy laws have enabled residents and tourists to engage in far more activities as long as these take place behind closed doors, with the Rights of Associations laws allowing them to do these socially.
Joining the Cali Cave
Those that wish to become members of the Cali Cave need to get in touch with the staff via the website or social media pages. Members don’t need to be Spanish residents to join, which is why so many rappers based in the UK from elsewhere have become patrons. Public attitudes towards cannabis have changed dramatically over the decades, with crime rates falling considerably in areas where it has been legalised and decriminalised. Those found with small amounts of cannabis are rarely prosecuted, and many non-smokers have called for the legalisation of the substance, not just for medical users. Cannabis has also provided valuable economic boosts to many of the countries and states where it has been legalised.
Further expansion expected
The success of the Cali Cave is already influencing a range of fellow entrepreneurs seeking to cater for those that wish to use cannabis socially in luxurious environments with plenty of facilities. With its reputation growing all the time, it looks like the Cali Club is set to continue its rapid expansion.
