Stephanie Shehan: Thanks for having us out to the store – what a cool set up. Are you originally from Las Vegas?
David Kennedy: Yes, I am from Northeast Las Vegas.
SS: What led you to the cannabis industry?
DK: I went to college in Humboldt County, California and met all the right people including a well known cannabis social media influencer who took me under his wing and showed me everything. He taught me how to grow, how to build and everything else that goes with the industry.
SS: Are you involved in the newly developed legal cannabis market in California?
DK: Yes, I have a distribution license in California and affiliations with various cultivation facilities in the Los Angeles and Humboldt areas.
SS: What prompted you to open your store here in Vegas?
DK: Medical cannabis saved my life in many ways and I was always someone interested in fashion. I was deprived of the ability to show my fashion sense growing up due to lack of money. I was raised in Northeast Las Vegas so I wanted to bring something unique to Vegas with the inspiration of the Humboldt County life. This is the cannabis life and fashion all in one dope store.
SS: Tell us about your brand, Louddpax.
DK: The Louddpax name was created from the word loud which is the universal slang for fire weed and the word pax which is universal in the cannabis world for pounds.
SS: Very creative. What types of items do you carry in the store?
DK: I have everything from cannabis related clothing, to items for smokers and trappers, as well as CBD products. I pretty much created an all-in-one cannabis store without the cannabis that targets those interested in all the ancillary items that go along with the industry.
SS: Do you intend to branch out into other areas of the Nevada cannabis industry?
DK: I do plan on branching out and expanding my brand in many areas of the industry with a few future possibilities already in the works.
SS: Has Covid impacted your business?
DK: I opened my store in the middle of this pandemic. Covid pushed me to see just how strong I am, and that I was able to survive and succeed in this cutthroat business.
SS: Are you a cannabis consumer? And, if so, any favorite strains?
DK: I am a cannabis consumer. I enjoy Cookie strains and smoke only flower.
SS: Anything exciting coming up for your brand in the near future?
DK: We will have exciting new drops every month, including events with live DJs and store discounts.
SS: How can our readers follow the store on the web/social media?
DK: Our website is louddpaxlifestyle.com and readers can follow us on Instagram @louddpax.
