Though Los Angeles has a variety of dispensaries to choose from, WHTC LA is an established dispensary known for our high-quality selection. We don’t stock any products that we haven’t tried ourselves first, so before you Google, “where is the best dispensary near me?” head straight to WHTC LA. 

WHTC LA is a family-owned cannabis dispensary located off the Hollywood Freeway, about two miles east of CBS Studio Center. As one of the early leaders in cannabis retail offerings, we continuously advocate for safe access to cannabis treatments.

 You can find a complete list of our products by shopping online, but here are a few of our options:


Flower is dried cannabis flower, or the smokable parts of cannabis plants. Use flower to roll joints or pack them into pipes, bowls, and bongs.


A pre-roll is a joint that has already been rolled for you. These make for convenient, ready-to-go consumption.


Vaporizers are handheld devices with a low-temperature heating element that renders the cannabis into vapor. 


Food and drink products that have been infused with marijuana are called edibles. They come in a lot of different forms. At the WHTC LA store, you can find them in the form of gummies, chocolates, fruit chews, and much more.


Topicals include balms, creams, lotions, salves, and anything else infused with marijuana that you can apply to your skin. Topicals are great for using cannabis locally on parts of your body to decrease inflammation or pain.
