It’s only fitting that bud from cult-favorite Mario Guzman (aka Mr. Sherbinskis) would find its way to the exceedingly chill stretch of Fairfax, brushing elbows with the likes of Supreme and Jon & Vinny’s. The sleek, orange-hued showroom houses Sherbinkis’ world-renowned, household-name strains like Sunset Sherbert and the entire Gelato line—Mochi, Bacio, Acai berry, and Gello. Among the flower, pre-rolls, vapes, and extracts you’ll also find brand leaders such as Dosist, Double Barrel, and Select.
One of the first retail dispensaries in the country, Green Goddess is a boutique shop just a scooter ride’s distance from the neighborhood’s iconic beachwalk and canals, but they also do free delivery within five miles for orders of $50 or more, if you can’t be bothered to leave the couch. The dispensary houses a wide variety of oil, kief, hash, vapes, wax, balms, and Buddha’s Dream Cannabis Oil made using Canadian engineer Rick Simpson’s method.

While Cookies does sell more than just edibles—namely a solidly curated lineup of clean, high-octane flower and wax—let’s take a second to appreciate the wonders on their dosed baked goods menu from Venice Cookie Company. The 100mg bags, with a trusty 10mg per cookie, come in varieties like The Hippie (vegan-friendly trail mix, granola, peanut butter, and dried cherries), The Chipster (chocolate chips, cranberries, and sea salt), and the incredibly well-balanced CBD Churros. This franchise is far from an underdog, but when you have recording artist/marijuana mogul Berner at the helm, you have to root for the guy who brought us Girl Scout Cookies.
Located on the fourth floor of the building (with stunning views of the city), TLC is a legit specialty shop, featuring a variety of cannabis products, as well as a Show Grow Room and a Jungle Boys Apparel section. Budtenders are on-hand to help you decide, but TLC also features an “Express Line” if you already know what you want—this can be useful when you want to be in and out, but other customers have a ton of questions.
The gang from “The Bakerie’ finally has their own retail location. This Los Angeles born brand made a name for itself cultivating for “Cookies” then dropped their own strain “Lacville 79” for hip hop legend Devin The Dude. The Bakerie is now known for their exotic yet affordable cannabis strains and their cult like following for strain drops such as Fresco, Cortadito, George and their Taylor Gang strain Yea Yup. The Bakerie has been coined “The People’s Brand”. Never before have I seen such high quality cannabis, dope packaging, creative marketing, you name it for such an affordable price. The Bakerie LBC lives up to the hype. The farm to table concept is completed here with prices and quality that earn it the number one cannabis dispensary in Los Angeles. The Long Beach location is a large building off the 710 & PCH, it has tons of parking and a very helpful, chill staff. The marketing via “The Bakerie” is amazing, the energy of not only the staff but the brand itself is contagious. I can’t say enough about this store, get your ass down there!
