Our Top 10 Favorite Dispensaries in LA

Now that recreational marijuana is legal in California, hundreds of more weed dispensaries have popped up in just a few months. In Los Angeles alone, there are about 1500 pot shops. That’s more than the entire state of Colorado! And Colorado has had recreational marijuana for 6 years now, so that’s definitely saying something. The marijuana industry is booming in LA and it seems like there is a new dispensary opening its doors every day.

So if you live in LA or plan on visiting, you definitely have choices. Even if you tried 3 new shops a day it would take you over a year to try them all. So we thought we would make this easy. We’ve narrowed it down and put together a list of our top 10 favorite dispensaries! (Not in any particular order)


Exhalence – 10467 Roscoe Blvd, Sun Valley, CA

Nirvana Clinic Lobby

If you are looking for a medical card in LA, check out Nirvana clinic. While recreational is legal, there are some people under 21 who are in need of medical marijuana. Or, maybe you want to lower the taxes you pay for recreational marijuana. Either way, Nirvana clinic is still the best! You can walk in and out in 30 minutes with your new medical card.

We wanted to make sure everybody’s needs were included!
