Although we are a medical and recreational cannabis dispensary and delivery service, we cannot forget our roots!
Our thanks and gratitude goes out to Denis Peron who ended the “War on Pot” and gave us the Compassionate Use Act of 1996, otherwise known as Proposition 215. Prop 215 gave the people of California the right to consume cannabis as medicine when given a recommendation by a doctor.
For decades, the “Drug War” on cannabis was waged between the government and the people. Those scars are not gone, and we are still mending those open wounds. The victims were disproportionately minorities, especially people of color. This demands attention and must be rectified.
The Medithrive Team and its stakeholders stand firm for fairness and work to right this great injustice.
Community is important to us.
You are important to us.
Our location was one of the first original dispensaries to open and the only one that still stands.
It first opened in 1996 during the AIDs epidemic as a purely medical cannabis dispensary. Then in 2009, we remodeled and rebranded as Medithrive.
Medithrive wanted to offer our community a positive environment.
We are committed to offering the community an open, inviting, safe,
friendly, and beautiful store to visit.
Medithrive joined the good fight, and our battle began with the government. The operators, staff, and even the senior landlords faced an onslaught of threats and attacks by the local, state, and federal government. Despite the unwarranted threats, interference, and intimidation tactics of the government, we were determined to remain in the Mission and provide a much needed service to the community.
We make it our mission to continue to fight for, support and give back as much as we can.
Medithrive has been and always will be locally owned and operated in San Francisco, California. We are not a big corporation backed by investors and ruled by the stock market. Our passion and care for the community started right here on Mission Street. We have been here since the beginning, and we are here to stay!
We are a small, independent business that creates a genuinely warm and inviting environment for you to visit.
- Medical cannabis should always be available to everyone who receives a recommendation for it.
- People 21 or older should have the right to purchase and use recreational cannabis responsibly.
- We must restore social equity to those who helped to build, create, and nurture this LEGAL cannabis community that we know and love today.
At Medithrive, we work hard to serve you. Supporting legalized cannabis, diversity, fairness, and your freedom has been our goal for over 11 years!
