Slide background

Those who live in the state of California and who are at least 21 years of age can purchase recreational marijuana for enjoyment purposes or to treat chronic medical conditions such as anxiety, stress, insomnia, or depression. If a patient is under the age of 21 and still wants to use marijuana to treat a qualifying health condition such as cancer, spasticity, seizures, migraines, or chronic pain, they must get an ID card from the state or designate a caregiver who has an ID card from the state to purchase marijuana from a medical dispensary. 

Are Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Legal in California?

Yes, they are. Hundreds of different licensed dispensaries are located throughout the state of California. Anyone over the age of 21 can buy marijuana products at recreational dispensaries with a valid state-issued ID, but only those with a medical marijuana ID card can purchase marijuana from those marked as medical dispensaries. Medical dispensaries will sell to those between 18 and 21 years of age if they have an ID card and often carry a greater variety of high-CBD strains that can be used to treat medical conditions. Marijuana sold at medical dispensaries are also tax exempt.

List of Cannabis Products Available for Purchase in the State 

Because both recreational and medicinal marijuana is legal in the state of California, you can buy it in any form including flower, vapes, tinctures, edibles, concentrates, oils, and more. If you have an ID card and cannot find the type of medical marijuana you want at a medical dispensary, you can try a recreational dispensary if you are at least 21 years of age. Though many medical dispensaries will have a greater variety of high-CBD strains, those who treat their conditions with products also high in THC may be able to find more products at a recreational dispensary. Keep in mind that marijuana from a recreational dispensary will be subject to sales tax while marijuana from a medical dispensary will not.
