The Top 10 Dispensaries to Buy Weed in and near West Hollywood

Ahh, the dispensaries of the stars. But when it comes to providing bud to the fabulous westside weed smokers, which retailers do it the best?

Weedmaps News pulled Weedmaps listing data from May, June, and July 2019 and looked at which retail listings were the most visited and commented on to determine which were among the best places to buy weed in West Hollywood, California.

Each of these storefronts is recreational, meaning they welcome all adults 21 and older with proper identification, and they all carry a wide array of cannabis brands on top of their own in-house lines. But many of these dispensaries were original medical marijuana storefronts in this area, meaning they have deep roots in the local cannabis community and have put patients first, still operating their medical licenses alongside recreational ones.
