The marijuana business is flourishing in San Diego, and dispensaries (where customers go to purchase their cannabis products) are becoming more and more popular. According to this interactive city map, updated April 1, 2018, 17 dispensaries have been approved within San Diego County. The very first dispensary approved was Torrey Holistics, located in Sorrento Valley.
Torrey Holistics is very excited to have been chosen by the state of California’s Bureau of Cannabis Control as the first dispensary in the state to be licensed to sell Adult Use cannabis.
While they are thrilled to serve the adult community at large, they maintain their commitment to our medical marijuana patients, which is so important to the medical patients here in San Diego. Although you do not have to purchase from a dispensary, it does give you confidence that the products you purchase are safe, lab-tested, and compliant with all California standards. Here are some important things to note about Torrey Holistics:
Location: They are located at 10671 Roselle St. #100
San Diego, CA 92121, which is very convenient to North County residents. When you arrive you will have to go through a metal detector (to screen for weapons) and check in at the front.
Hours: Monday – Saturday: 7am-9pm and Sunday: 9am-9pm
ASK DR. BETH: Dr. Beth, Ph.D. is not only an extremely compassionate cannabis consultant, but a REAL scientist. She has a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry and is a cancer survivor. She is using all her knowledge and resources to help guide customers through the cannabis options now available to them.
Meet privately and ask Dr. Beth, Ph.D. all your scientific questions about cannabis. Your private consultation will be followed by a visit to the store, where Dr. Beth will assist you with your purchase.
Please note, there is a $100 consultation fee, BUT $50 of this fee is given as a store credit towards your purchase at Torrey Holistics.
What to Bring: You must be 21 years of age and have a valid ID (driver’s license, passport, Federal ID card) to purchase cannabis products.
Cash/Credit Card: Torrey Holistics is a CASH ONLY dispensary.
How Much Cannabis Can You Buy? According to California law, the daily purchase limits for Adult Use customers are 28.5 grams of non-concentrated cannabis or 8 grams of concentrated cannabis or 6 immature cannabis plants. For medical patients, the daily purchase limit is 8 ounces of medicinal cannabis. If a patient’s valid physician’s recommendation contains an amount exceeding the daily limit, the patient may purchase the amount recommended by the physician.
Medical Marijuana Patient Priority: Torrey Holistics has a medical priority line which is expedited ahead of recreational customers. They want to extend a little extra love to their medical patients so Torrey Holistics offers a 10% discount to medical members. If you have a valid medical recommendation you also are exempt from the 5% cannabis business tax in San Diego. Additionally, if you obtain the county issued Medical Marijuana ID Card you will be exempt from the 7.75% state sales tax as well.
Educational Cannabis Classes: Every Monday & Wednesday // 11am to 11:30am
Whether you are new to cannabis or are well-versed in it, the Cannabis 101 workshops at Torrey are a place where you will get your questions answered. Their goal is to bring peace, balance and knowledge to their clientele, and they celebrate your freedom to choose the products that are best for your individual needs. RSVP to a cannabis class here.
