Cannabis has been open for recreational use in California—meaning no medical card needed—since 2016. It was, rightfully so, deemed an “essential business” last March, a necessary declaration since we never needed the gift of marijuana more than we did in 2020. If you partake, you probably have a go-to SF shop by now, but in case 420 has inspired you to branch out, you’re looking for a new selection of products, or just need a spot that delivers past 7 pm, we’ve put together a list of our favorites, all of which offer quality and variety in oils, vapes, flowers, edibles, and everything in between.
In non-pandemic times, this swanky cannabis destination is so much more than a dispensary. The 1,500-square foot space has a mid-century/speakeasy feel with dedicated areas for vaping, smoking (in a dimly-lit “High Roller” room), and a dab lounge (“The Vault”). All of the tables even have USB ports and charges, plus fast Wi-Fi throughout in case your WFH vibe is more smoke shop than coffee shop. And even though we can’t enjoy those amenities right now, Moe Greens is still a great spot for premium products and knowledgeable staff eager to help guide you and answer any questions. Check the events page for daily deals, like Wyld Wednesday—buy two packs of Wyld gummies and get the third one for a buck.
How to order: Moe Greens is open for in-store shopping, pickup, and delivery ($50 minimum). Store hours are 9 am to 9 pm every day.

Put simply, the legal cannabis industry would not be where it is today without the work of Steve and Andrew DeAngelo, co-founders of Harborside and legendary cannabis activists and entrepreneurs. The pioneering dispensary was the first anywhere to do cannabis lab testing, both for safety screening and potency analysis. Today you’ll find an assortment of top-shelf products and gear, presented by a peacemaking, well-trained staff who subscribe to the DeAngelo motto that “the vibe attracts the tribe.”
How to order: Harborside’s Oakland location is open for in-store shopping (10 am to 8 pm), curbside pickup (10 am to 6 pm), and delivery (10 am to 7 pm) with a $50 or $100 minimum depending on where you are in the East Bay.
