Medithrive FAQs

We have collected the most common questions asked by our customers and put them here for you. There is a load of valuable information about our store, cannabis dispensary rules, marijuana product lab tests, and our delivery service throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. If you don’t see your question here, contact us anytime.

  • What is Medithrive?

    Medithrive is a fully licensed dispensary and delivery service providing medical and recreational cannabis to the San Francisco Bay Area for over a decade.

  • Why is Medithrive a historic location?

    Medithrive is a testament to the fight for cannabis legalization and a symbol of American freedom. If our walls could talk they would tell you how our location has supplied marijuana and hemp products for medical purposes since 1996, right in the heart of the Mission District. When Medithrive took over the building more than a decade ago in 2009, we continued to support the community. We created an inviting atmosphere and beautiful store with the best cannabis available for San Francisco. When the United States government forced dozens of legal shops to close their doors, we developed a delivery service to offer our customers the same great products and bring them right to their door. We will never give up on providing cannabis to those who need it. What doesn’t kill us, makes us stronger. As soon as we could, we reopened our doors and now we are better than ever with a sophisticated storefront AND delivery. These walls hold a 24 year old tradition to serve you proudly. Join in our tradition and support one of San Francisco’s oldest dispensaries. Support us so we can continue to support your right as an American.
