If you are not familiar with the name, then let us help you out. Stiiizy is a top brand dispensary, famous for its unique pods, edibles, pre-rolls, and of course, their variety of flowers. 

Their Mission location was the second this brand opened and one of the top locations that San Francisco and the Bay Area offer. Local artists were invited to create custom Bay Area-inspired paintings to make this place ideal for cannabis-related brands.

The Stiiizy Mission is located at 3326 Mission Street, in San Francisco, perhaps one of the most well-known, influential, and historic neighborhoods in the area and the USA.

Find all of Stiiizy’s products, including merchandising, apparel, smoking accessories, plus more than 55 different California-based brands.
