In honor of 4/20, we thought it best to highlight the super hip, super licensed, and super full-service medical cannabis dispensary in the Castro — The Apothecarium.

The Apothecarium provides a wide variety of appropriately priced medication in a safe, well-appointed setting. They offer a broad spectrum of medicinal options , including flowers, edibles, topicals, and concentrates — and their knowledgeable patient consultants are always available to assist you in selecting the appropriate medicine for your needs.
