In business since April 2004, this is the oldest dispensary in Los Angeles County. Technically, it's not in the city of Los Angeles even though it's only 50 yards away from the boundary between LA and West Hollywood at La Brea Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard. Several employees have been around for a decade or more. Manager Susanna de la Rionda considers her collective as one that caters to cancer and AIDS patients, many of whom are recommended by hospitals such as Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. "I don't smoke and don't have to to see how much it helps others," de la Rionda said. "Sometimes we're the only people that patients see that day." Nothing takes the place of years of experience. For that reason, patients like the fact that budtenders understand the effects of specific meds. "We're not here for a party. We're here for the medicine. We don't have a booth with flashing lights and we don't enter contests. We're about safe access and sensible use." That being said, they have incredible strains like Trainwreck, Legend OG and a fantastic Blueberry DJ Short. In terms of dispensaries, this is what nice looks like.
