Santa Barbara Marijuana Dispensaries

Santa Barbara is a small paradise that offers scenic seaside adventures, stunning mountain vistas, and a city full of California flare. It’s an ideal destination and a perfect place to live – summer weather year-round, endless sunny days, and picturesque Spanish-influenced architecture that details every city street. There’s no shortage of amazing food and high-end hotels, local wine is some of the best in the state, and there’s always something to do outdoors: surfing, hiking, biking, kayaking, and all sorts of beaches to explore. Santa Barbara also features some of the most gorgeous sunsets you’ll find in the states. It really is a paradise city.

On top of all that, Santa Barbara also has a very active cannabis scene. On February 27, 2018, the Santa Barbara County Board passed ordinances that allowed the cultivation and distribution of marijuana within county limits. Since then, a large handful of dispensaries have built roots throughout the city. While California is often considered a marijuana capital, most of the counties don’t actually allow the commercial sale of weed, so it’s a big deal that Santa Barbara allowed this in 2018. The dispensaries generally operate between the hours of 10 AM and 8 PM, and most offer both medical and adult-use marijuana products. It is important to note that while Santa Barbara legalized the sale of marijuana, it is still illegal to use it in public or drive while under the influence.
