The Apothecarium – San Francisco’s widely praised medical cannabis dispensary – proposes to open a second location at 2414 Lombard. We will operate as a licensed collective in compliance with all state and local laws. The interior of the facility will have an upscale contemporary design, which will capture the spirit of the Marina. The exterior will have a stylish yet non-descript frontage, without any advertisement for medical cannabis. Simply put, the exterior will display no cheap neon lights or depictions of marijuana leaves.
The Apothecarium at 2414 Lombard Street will serve the local patient community by providing a patient-focused dispensary that operates in an identical manner to our first dispensary located in Duboce Triangle. The organization will offer medical cannabis products produced by our collective, as well as medicine obtained from other patients with legal cultivation rights in the state of California. The dispensary will be staffed with educated professionals that provide in-depth consultations and product information to patients.
The SF Planning Department has praised the Apothecarium for its "community centered approach" and for showing how a dispensary "can successfully blend into the community."
The Apothecarium plans to help in beautification efforts in the immediate vicinity of the proposed location. In addition, we will sweep the outside sidewalk two times per day and prevent loitering and smoking within 100 feet of the facility. As we have with our Castro location, we have formed a Philanthropic Advisory Board to help us determine how our substantial quarterly donations should be directed for the benefit of the local community.
