A huge part of finding great cannabis is finding the right dispensary for it. In LA, and in California in general, there is no such thing as a shortage of good dispensaries. 

A good thing, of course. But also one that can make things a little confusing.

That’s why we’ve taken the time to do a round-up of what we consider to be the best dispensaries in Los Angeles. So if you live in the LA area and are starting to feel the need for some top-notch weed, this list will sort things out for you.

Sweet Flower

Here we have California’s leading cannabis retailer. Known as one of the longest-serving legal dispensaries in L.A., this premium cannabis flower dispensary first began as a medical collective that slowly evolved into a business that can reach so many more people in need of cannabis. Sweet Flower has operated since 2006, but only began expanding throughout California since 2018 when recreational cannabis was legalized. Today you’ll be able to find a Sweet Flower location on Melrose, the Downtown Los Angeles Art District, Studio City, Westwood, and soon-to-open locations in Culver City and Pasadena.

Grassdoor is an online cannabis delivery service that works with the most renowned cannabis brands and ensures your order gets to you within 40 minutes or less…  Just like pizza. Grassdoor delivers to your doorstep throughout Los Angeles and Orange County. More than your typical dispensary, Grassdoor is something like ‘the Uber of Cannabis’. The company claims to 100% guarantee the quality compliance and thorough testing of every cartridge and concentrate brands on their menu. Grassdoor is open 365 days a year from 10am to 9:30pm.

Dr. Greenthumb

Before being a dispensary Dr. Greenthumb was only but a song by Cypress Hill, a Hip Hop group co-founded by the now leader of Dr. Greenthumb Dispensary, B-Real. The dispensary chain currently has locations in Downtown LA, Eureka, San Fran, Sacramento, Sylmar, and a consumption lounge in Cathedral City since 2018. On top of being a solid dispensary, Dr. Greenthumb has also partnered with several brands and launched innovative products that could change the way we smoke.

The Artist Tree

The Artist Tree is much more than just a dispensary, it’s a provider of one-of-a-kind experiences. Each shop & lounge is designed as a unique location where cannabis learning, shopping, art, and getting high is all part of the deal. The idea behind the concept is to have their locations be a source of creative inspiration for people through a design that shows the synergy between the arts and cannabis by showcasing revolving exhibits from local artists and a variety of arts programming.

STIIIZY

STIIIZY is an innovative, award-winning, California-based cannabis brand. It was created in 2017 as a pioneering vape company, and today it has evolved into so much more.
