Marina Del Rey
Marina del Rey is one of our favorite places on the Westside, and we’re happy to serve all the cannabis needs of our neighbors. It’s home to some of our best customers, and only six miles away. If you haven’t been in to see us yet, stop by and say hello!

DID YOU KNOW WE WERE NAMED MARIJUANA DISPENSARY OF THE YEAR IN THE MARINA DEL REY AREA?
This seaside community is in an unincorporated section of Los Angeles, southeast of Venice and north of Playa del Rey. It has a population of 8,866 within its 1.5 square mile area. The marina is the largest man-made small-craft harbor in North America, housing 5,000 boats. The surrounding area consists of restaurants, condos, hotels, and shops, as well as the University of Southern California Information Sciences Institute, UCLA Marina Aquatic Center, and Loyola Marymount’s University boathouse.
why we love marina del rey
Marina del Rey has everything you could want in a Westside location. The landscape is one-of-kind with beautiful views and natural wildlife. From water activities like parasailing, paddleboarding, boating, sailing lessons, kayaking, and jet skiing, to free weekend concerts and great shopping options, this place has it all. You can whale watch during migration season, and even try an open-water fishing excursion and catch your dinner. It’s also a stone’s throw away from Venice Beach, if that’s more your vibe. Fisherman’s Village is a section of the marina with restaurants, tours, rentals, and kitschy shops. Marvin Braude Bike Path passes through the marina so that you can enjoy the views on two wheels.
DID YOU KNOW THAT MARINA DEL REY WAS ORIGINALLY A SALT MARSH THAT WAS OFTEN VISITED BY DUCK HUNTERS?
It was fed by the fresh water flowing in from Ballona Creek, and was a lively spot for wildlife. The land was eventually purchased and renamed “Del Rey”, and what was previously Port Bollana was renamed Playa del Rey. The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved a loan to construct the marina in 1953. Before construction was complete, a winter storm caused extreme damage to the marina and anchored boats. A breakwater was eventually built at the mouth of the marina to help prevent further destruction. From there, hotels, apartment complexes, and shopping centers were built to make the marina an enticing tourist destination.
