REDDING, Calif. - In California, under Governor Newsom’s stay-at-home order, only essential businesses should be open and pot shops are considered essential.

Leave It to Nature manager Laurie Stickney tells Action News Now that in the past couple of weeks their sales have spiked.

Stickney says she believes people could be stocking up because they’re stressed or anxious.

She tells Action News Now before the pandemic they were logging close to 60 sales transactions a day, but that number has almost tripled.

“We have increased quite a bit, quite a bit,” says Stickney, manager at Leave It to Nature. “But everything has been going well about the fact that they’re keeping their masks and wearing gloves, they’re being safe, but yes it has gone up quite a bit.”

In their case, they’re seeing more people buying edibles compared to other pot products.

Stickney says the number of walk-ins is down, but they’ve seen a lot more first-time clients and more people are using the drive-thru instead.

She says while the demand is high, they’ve managed to keep up with supply.

Leave It to Nature has also stepped up its cleaning procedures. They’re cleaning three times a day and installed sneeze guards at their check-out counters.
