Despite California being one of the first states to legalize medical cannabis, recreational marijuana wasn’t legal in the state until 2016. Luckily, the purchase and use of cannabis in the state is still highly normalized. Any adult over the age of 21 can buy cannabis from a licensed retailer, but make sure you understand the laws before consuming in California. Retailers range from storefront dispensaries or delivery services, as both are legal in the city.  Similar to other cities, it is illegal to use cannabis in public spaces, buildings, and events. Marijuana is only legal in private residences or one of the city’s dispensaries with a smoking lounge. However, it is important to note that even though the State of California allows for the use of recreational cannabis, the use of cannabis on federal lands (national parks, airports, etc.) is still illegal. Additionally, driving under the influence of cannabis is also illegal.

  • They showing love! Great knowledge and great service !

  • They know what they doing exactly 100%

  • Best customer experience EVER! These guys are on point and the owner is very responsive to any issues. I had a problem with my cartridge, but it turned out to be my battery. The owner gave me some great education, and even though I was ready to buy the right battery from them, they gave it to me for free! I'm a happy customer and will be back for sure.

  • Worst customer experience I have ever had at a shop. The manager is super rude and has no clue what he’s doing. I went to check them out for the first time today as I like to support local businesses. This Asian guy with glasses helped me. I was there for edibles and cartridges. He asked what battery pen I had and pointed out all the cartridges that would work with it. I bought a few edibles and two 1gm cartridges- I spent over $220 and left super happy. I got to my car and realized one of the cartridges didn’t work with my battery pen, so went straight back to let him know. The manager threw a fit and said, “I’m not responsible for the kind of pen you have. You can buy a new pen that works with this cartridge”. This is the answer I got despite the bud tender hand-picking cartridges that “would work” with my pen. I was speechless and extremely disappointed. They lack the basic knowledge and experience. Save your money and stay away.

  • I've tried about 6 dispensaries in SF, and the Apothecarium is my favorite. The budtenders act professional and don't push you to buy stuff you don't want. Because you can't vape there, you don't see unsavory people lingering there. They almost always seem to give you just a bit more than what the price would indicate (e.g. 1.2g for 1g price). Glad to live nearby!
