The 10 Best Dispensaries in California

Everyone knows that California is one of the leading pro-cannabis states in the country. It was one of the first states to embrace decriminalization in the mid-1970s, it was the first state to legalize medicinal marijuana, then it became the fifth state to legalize recreational weed in 2016. So in a state with this much cannabis history (and this much size), it should come as not surprise that it has a ton of dispensaries. But what are the best dispensaries in California?
