Anaheim. Los Angeles’ red-headed little step brother. Perpetually in the shadow of the miraculous disaster that is the City of Angels. Hell, they even call Anaheim’s ball club the L.A. Angels.
Ok, sorry. We’ve really got nothing against Anaheim – honestly. If anything, we root for the town because we’re still trying to figure out how we feel about L.A. itself. The weed is good, but it’s not Colorado good. And, not to mention, it’s still illegal.
Anyhow, let’s get to business. Anaheim’s 5 Grams Collective – one of the city’s premier marijuana dispensaries. They carry a pretty decent stock of fine-quality buds at more or less standard prices: $40 for most 1/8ths and $45-$50 for the top dogs. Interestingly, though, out of the couple dozen strains that they carry, the vast majority are of the indica variety. Nothing really wrong with that, as far as we’re concerned, but what about the folks who prefer sativas?
Highlights: 5 Grams Collective, Anaheim CA
- Super friendly staff – definitely no L.A. snobs here
- Wide selection of concentrates, edibles, extracts, topicals, and paraphernalia in addition to their flower selection
- Open 7 days a week past midnight (what!?)
Alright, can we talk about Anaheim some more? Now that we’ve got to thinking, we’re really pretty bummed out that it doesn’t get the recognition that it should. I mean, it’s the Heart of Orange County – Orange County! The most desirable region in the U.S. to live!
Oh, and do we have to mention that it’s home to freaking Disneyland? I mean come on, who would rather go to Orlando than Southern California? Perfect weather, marijuana collectives, and last time we checked, there were a lot less alligators and mosquitoes in So Cal than there were in Central Florida.
Also, it’s less than a half-hour drive to Huntington Beach – need we say more? So go on and skip the silly neon lights of L.A. and check out Anaheim instead – and make sure to stop on into 5 Grams Collective when you do.
