WHEN YOU Enter A NEW PLACE, WHETHER You SEnse it Immediately OR NOT, THERE IS A LONG HISTORY PREFIGURing EVERYTHING YOU WILL EXPERIENCE THERE.

It’s America’s global village - a place where the visitor becomes part of the spectrum of what is happening. It’s all about sharing talents, skills, music, food and art. A message in a bottle of what California is all about.

Venice Beach Care Center 

 

With a mission to bring the highest quality medication to qualified patients in the classic Southern California community of Venice Beach, compassion has been our watchword from the beginning. In addition to providing FULL and EQUAL ACCESS to all regardless of identity, age, or gender, our collective is fully ADA compliant and accessible.

Venice Beach Care Center is a consumers' collective organization formed to donate and exchange labor, materials, money, and knowledge to assist the ill and disabled in cultivating, receiving, consuming, and trading medical cannabis. The purpose of the collective shall be:

A. To provide Members with a safe and reliable facility to leave, receive, and trade medical cannabis for alternative pain relief in a clean and peaceful environment.

B. To provide its Members with clean, organic, high quality cannabis with affordable prices by utilizing our united funds and efforts for the acquisition and consumption of those goods, and the performance of services and such other activities as will benefit the Members.

C. To supplement traditional medicine with natural medicine to provide relief from pain and suffering.

- Venice Beach Care Center Charter, 2006

As our collective has matured our mission has also grown. We are constantly seeking out new scientific extraction techniques, improving quality and safety of our flowers and ingestible products, and creating vibrant community around our evolving understanding of cannabis as medicine. Today, VBCC is a conduit for the best therapeutic cannabis brands on the California market. 

Further, VBCC has committed itself to community service and activism. Our marijuana dispensary is a UFCW Local 770 Union Shop since 2012. The collective has consistently passed accreditation with and been an active member of the Greater Los Angeles Collective Alliance [GLACA]. We also proudly support the Muscle Beach Toy Drive each year. 

Do you have a question or consultation need? Please speak with our educated collective staff or call with any inquiries regarding cannabis consumption or the products carried in our collective.

Do you have a media question, interview request, or political or activist related query? Call our corporate office at 213-267-8153. 

The allure of Venice Beach is the relative freedom which still exists there. It doesn’t have the most beautiful sand or ocean. It doesn’t have anything unique except its freedom and its tradition of this freedom.
