The Apothecarium was founded by three first cousins and two family friends in San Francisco in 2011. We now have three dispensaries in San Francisco, and one in Las Vegas. 

Here’s a quote from our founder about how it all started: 

“Years ago I was standing in line at a dispensary, waiting behind a woman my grandmother’s age. Like me, she was there for a serious medical issue. But the people working there were unable to provide her the information she needed. That was my ‘lightbulb moment’ -- when I decided to create a dispensary where she could find quality cannabis and also the information and support she needed to use it safely and effectively, in a welcoming, non-judgemental environment.

Everything we do at The Apothecarium -- from the products we select, to the training our staff receive, to the way we design our dispensaries -- is intended to give her the experience she deserves. I know if we are

meeting her needs, then we are probably meeting the needs of everyone who comes through our doors.”

Now, our dispensaries are known internationally for emphasizing education and customer service for seniors, first-time dispensary visitors, and patients with serious medical conditions. 


Online consultations are available through the yellow CHAT bubble on our website.

Phone consultations are available by calling any of our dispensaries.

The Apothecarium Castro is located at Market and Dolores St., San Francisco, California, close to MUNI. We specialize in in-store one to one consultations, and offer both in-store and online pre-ordering
