The dispensaries are back open! At least, most of them are — here’s a complete list of which dispensaries are open, closed, and who will deliver to your doorstep.
It’s been a roller coaster 48 hours for San Francisco pot dispensaries (and underground pot dealers) since Mayor London Breed announced the sweeping COVID-19 shelter-in-place order that’s keeping us all very appropriately all holed up indoors. Cannabis shops and delivery services initially spent Monday afternoon thinking they were exempt under the “essential business” medical/pharmacy exception, but then a Monday night order from the DPH told pot purveyors that “Cannabis Dispensaries and Cannabis Delivery Services are not considered an ‘Essential Business’” and “You will need to close your business starting March 17, 2020.”
Huge lines formed at weed storefronts Monday night, but then as of late Tuesday afternoon, some haggling from Supervisor Matt Haney led Mayor Breed to reinstate the essentialness of marijuana dispensaries, and there was much green rejoicing on St. Patrick’s Day.

So which dispensaries are back open? Which ones are still closed? And which ones offer delivery or online pickup? SFist just called all 34 dispensaries in town and here’s a complete list of who’s open, who’s closed, and — perhaps most importantly in this germophobic phase — which dispensaries offer delivery, or online pre-ordering so you can just grab your stash and go with maximum social distancing in effect.
The short answer is that only eight of the 34 dispensaries seen above are still closed as of Wednesday afternoon, the vast majority are back in business. Be aware that none of the ‘smoking lounges’ are open, and most shops are being pretty strict about letting only two or three shoppers in at a time, or forcing people to distance themselves by six feet. This is necessary and wise! Further, each dispensary is listed only once, though some of them meet all three criteria of offering delivery, offering online pickup, and being open normal hours.
Which SF Dispensaries Offer Delivery
These dispensaries will let you order online or over the phone, and will deliver right to your door. It’s cash only, and you really ought to tip your driver well considering what they’re putting up with.
