Ready to fulfill your essential 420 needs
As recreational marijuana use increases in popularity (a truly impressive feat for the West Coast), dispensaries are sweeping across Los Angeles. With hundreds of locations to choose from, it can be hard to know where to get your flower, especially as we rely on delivery and pickup during the pandemic. From pre-plague to now, these dispensaries continue to pass the vibe check and keep their customers safe in the process.
This Black-owned delivery service is as speedy as its name suggests. Despite being a mobile operation, customer service is top-notch and more personal than many established delivery services. Daily deals include 30% off staff picks on Sundays and special member discounts on Mondays and Wednesdays. Pineapple Express is also one of the few ways you can get Sherbinskis products delivered to your door, so you can have your watermelon gummy and eat it too.
With locations on either end of Los Angeles, The High Note ma. These dispensaries secure their showrooms in speakeasy fashion with a bookcase door. Eschewing the bright and anesthetized look of many competitors, its cozy atmosphere and friendly budtenders make the entire experience less rushed. The menus cover a comprehensive range of brands and cannabis products. Taxes aren’t baked into the prices, so you might be in for a little shock, but daily deals help to take the edge off.
It’s only fitting that bud from cult-favorite Mario Guzman (aka Mr. Sherbinskis) would find its way to the exceedingly chill stretch of Fairfax brushing elbows with the likes of Supreme and Jon & Vinny’s. The sleek, orange-hued showroom houses Sherbinkis’ world-renowned, household strains like Sunset Sherbert and the entire Gelato line—Mochi, Bacio, Acai berry, and Gello. Among the flower, pre-rolls, vapes, and extracts you’ll also find brand leaders such as Dosist, Double Barrel, and Select.
A cozy shop with always affable budtenders, Exhale carries a wide selection of Bloom products and other popular brands like Foria and Kiva. You’ll find a fair amount of CBD products and plenty of clones should you want to grow your own. Customers are welcome to make use of the in-store resin press to squeeze hash oil out of their newly purchased flower, saving you the hassle of having to bust out the old hair straightener.
An airy, minimalist decor gives The Pottery a modern-day apothecary vibe, fitting for your purchase of an extremely helpful medicine—even “recreational” tokers benefit from the medicinal effects of marijuana from anti-inflammatory properties to anxiety reduction. In the interest of providing Earth-grown pharmaceuticals, you’ll find display cases of premium flower such as Bloom Farms’ Do Si Do, THC Design’s Purple Punch, and Pearl Pharma's Kosher White Truffle. The Pottery also delivers to a considerable section of the city with no additional fees.
California Caregivers Alliance has been around for over a decade, although it's now accepting recreational customers—and first-time visitors can enjoy 10% off after taxes! Tucked into the second floor of a strip mall, this little shop can get pretty packed at times, but if you're willing to wait a few minutes for your turn, a friendly staff is waiting to walk you through their reasonable selection of strains, edibles, vapes, and other products. There are daily specials, which is always a welcome treat, and on Sundays there's a prize wheel you can join in on with a donation -- who doesn’t love a prize wheel?
Open daily from 6 am to 10 pm (including holidays), WHTC just might be the most accessible dispensary yet. Winner of 2016 High Times Cannabis Cup, this shop excels in both options and education; their website is just as informative as their staff, helping you zero in on the best products for you. The shop offers a 5% discount to veterans, seniors, and medical marijuana patients with disabilities, plus daily deals for medical patients. While recreational customers are accepted, keep in mind that the daily deals are for medical patients only. Though there's a limited number of flower strains on offer, WHTC's fully stocked with extracts and concentrates, including the Dosist pens that are sold out at most shops.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a friendlier, more inviting atmosphere amongst budtenders than at City Compassionate Caregivers who’ve been cultivating some of LA’s top greens for 20+ years. The operation has been known to collaborate with weed royalty like the Wu-Tang Clan, Cypress Hill, and Snoop Dogg. Speaking of the D-o-double-gizzle, Caregivers uses Snoop’s Premium Nutrients on a number of plants in their on-site double-decker grow facility. Be sure to pick up some fire flower from The Cure Company, whose Glazed Apricot Gelato strain is sure to make for a relaxed stroll through the Arts District afterward.

If you're in the dark about what you need or the best canna product to tackle your issue, this is a very informative place to shop.
East LA and Echo Park
Los Angeles Kush is a bargain hunter’s green dream—to wit, every Tuesday at their Echo Park location is both Terp Tuesday with 15% off all vape cartridges AND Taco Tuesday meaning two free tacos with any purchase. There aren’t too many places that both give you the munchies and satisfy them within a 10-foot radius. Shop hours are ridiculously convenient, running from 7am to 10pm seven days a week, making it all that much easier to scratch an itch for San Fernando Valley OG or Cherry Zkittles.
One of the first retail dispensaries in the country, Green Goddess is a boutique shop just a scooter ride’s distance from the neighborhood’s iconic beachwalk and canals, but they also do free delivery within five miles for orders of $50 or more, if you can’t be bothered to leave the couch. The dispensary houses a wide variety of oil, kief, hash, vapes, wax, balms, and Buddha’s Dream Cannabis Oil made using Canadian engineer Rick Simpson’s method.
While Cookies does sell more than just edibles—namely a solidly curated lineup of clean, high-octane flower and wax—let’s take a second to appreciate the wonders on their dosed baked goods menu from Venice Cookie Company. The 100 mg bags, with a trusty 10mg per cookie, come in varieties like The Hippie (vegan-friendly trail mix, granola, peanut butter, and dried cherries), The Chipster (chocolate chips, cranberries, and sea salt), and the incredibly well-balanced CBD Churros. This franchise is far from an underdog, but when you have recording artist/marijuana mogul Berner at the helm, you have to root for the guy who brought us Girl Scout Cookies.
From the Earth has a few locations in Southern California (and Michigan), and it always strikes the balance between the gloss of a MedMen and the warmth of a boutique. The Long Beach location of this minority-owned dispensary chain is no exception. You can peruse its expansive inventory online for delivery or pickup to get beloved brands from Big Pete’s to Humboldt Farms.
Located on the fourth floor of the building (with stunning views of the city), TLC is a legit boutique, featuring a variety of cannabis products, as well as a Show Grow Room and a Jungle Boys Apparel section. Budtenders are on-hand to help you decide, but TLC also features an "Express Line" if you already know what you want—this can be useful when you want to be in and out, but other customers have a ton of questions.
Hollywood High Grade on Santa Monica Blvd offers free gift bags to all new patients, has different deals every day of the week, and on Fridays, you can choose from all of them! Like most dispensaries, HHG has a vast indica selection, but there's a surprisingly healthy selection of sativa and hybrids, as well.
They've been around since 2003, and have plenty of loyal customers. It's a welcoming space with free parking, and they consider Sunday their patient appreciation days, on which they offer compassion to those who cannot afford their medication. They also offer a military discount. Zen Healing carries a decent selection of flowers, plus edibles, vapes, topicals, drinks, and cooking aids—like weed hot sauce and olive oil.
