FAQs on dispensaries in San Diego

Are dispensaries legal in San Diego?

Yes. It is legal to purchase recreational or medical marijuana from a San Diego dispensary that has a license to sell — such as our Cannabist stores. You must be 21 years or over to purchase.

Do you need a medical card to buy from a dispensary in San Diego?

No. As of January 1st, 2017, you do not need an MMJ (medical marijuana card) to purchase marijuana from a dispensary in San Diego. However, you will need a valid, non-expired government-issued ID such as driver’s license, state ID card, or U.S. passport that shows you’re over 21.

How many dispensaries are in San Diego?

Currently, there are around 50 dispensaries in San Diego. That means you can find a dispensary in Pacific Beach, South Bay, Central SD, and surrounding areas. But while there are a variety of stores available, not every weed dispensary in San Diego provides the shopping experience you’ll find at Cannabist.

For example, if you are new to the weed scene, you’ll want to feel secure and comfortable while shopping. We understand that not all dispensaries provide that atmosphere, so when you shop at Cannabist, we make sure that you are getting the highest-quality product in a clean, tasteful, safe and inviting environment. The crew at Cannabist are passionate about our products and eager to answer any of your questions.

And if you are a marijuana aficionado, you will find Cannabist to be the best dispensary in San Diego for our sensational array of superior bud, flower, edibles, and more.

Can anyone go to a California dispensary?

Yes. As long as you have a valid, non-expired, government-issued ID such as driver’s license, state ID card, or U.S. passport that shows you’re over 21, you can shop our San Diego dispensary to your heart’s content.

Is it legal to smoke in public in San Diego?
