How to Buy Medical Marijuana in the Escondido Area

Following the announcement last week, the city of Escondido has now banned the sale of medical and recreational marijuana and shut down all the dispensaries. There is, however, still a legally-compliant medical dispensary just north of Escondido on the 15. San Diego Natural, located off Gopher Canyon Road, is the only fully legally licensed dispensary in North County, offering a wide selection of flower, vape cartridges, tinctures, topicals, and more from vendors such as OutCo, Heavy Hitters, and Lowell Smokes. San Diego Natural is now the only legally licensed medical dispensary in the Escondido area to offer Heavy Hitters cold-filtered vape cartridges. With total cannabinoid levels testing as high as 92%, Heavy Hitters cartridges offer a potent high in a variety of strains, such as favorites like Gorilla Glue, Tangie, and Skywalker OG. In addition to Heavy Hitters, we also offer a large selection of OutCo cartridges. Our staff is trained to help assist you in finding the best method of consumption for your needs. Patients 18 years or older are welcome at San Diego Natural, provided you have a medical recommendation and a California photo ID. We are not licensed to do recreational sales at this time. If you wish to retrieve a medical recommendation, please reach out to us and we will assist you in the process and reimburse you up to $40 for a medical marijuana recommendation. Although recreational sales are legal now, it is still highly beneficial to get a recommendation so you can shop at all dispensaries, avoid the 5% cannabis tax, and purchase cannabis in much larger quantities. So, if you are affected by the Escondido dispensary shut down, please be sure to visit San Diego Natural and we are happy to service your medical marijuana needs.

How To Buy Weed If You’re Under 21 in California

Buy weed/marijuana under 21 over 18

So you’re 18 and ready to buy some recently legalized recreational marijuana. As many adults under 21 are finding out, it’s not as easy as rolling up to your local proprietor and leaving with fresh party supplies. Each county and city in California has their own rules about who can sell, where they can sell it, and how adults are able to purchase. In San Diego city, adults 21 and older can purchase marijuana by simply walking into a legal “recreational” or adult-use store. If you’re under the legal age of 21, you will need a Doctor’s Recommendation to buy weed legally.

Luckily obtaining a marijuana recommendation (AKA “rec”) is incredibly easy. There are dozens of specialized doctors and websites that can issue a recommendation for as little as $35.

Go Online:

PrestoDoctor, HelloMD, and 420 Evaluations are just a handful of web-based services if you want to keep a low profile. The process takes about 20 minutes and involves answering some basic health questions or a skype interview with a doctor. Generally your official rec is mailed to you but you receive a printable temporary copy so you can shop right away!

Drop in:

For a more personal touch, you can talk to a real human doctor in an office setting to walk out with your official rec the same day. Try Dr. G’s Medical Marijuana Evaluations in Escondido, open 7 days a week. It’s likely the easiest doctor appointment you’ll ever make and she takes drop-in appointments all day long.

Purchase:

So you have your medical rec. Where can you buy weed if you’re under 21? Anywhere in California, as long as the stores are legal! And the benefits of having your medical rec keep coming. Not only are medical patients able to purchase and possess larger quantities of marijuana, but they are able to purchase weed with higher THC content. This higher content means better potency so your money goes further. You also avoid paying the adult consumption 5% tax. AND you’re able to shop anywhere in San Diego County. Check us out — San Diego Natural Cannabis, a licensed boutique-style neighborhood store in north county (Escondido) that will make you wonder how you ever managed to settle for your friends’ Ziploc baggie pot.

New cannabis laws can be confusing, but don’t let the legal jargon fool you into thinking that adults under 21 are barred from the fun of recreational marijuana. The benefits of having your medical rec will give you more variety in the places you can shop and keep the taxes a little lower so you can buy more high-THC buds.
