The capital of California is no slouch when it comes to legal, adult-use cannabis offerings.

In fact, Sacramento has helped set the state curve on licensing retail stores adults 21+ can walk into with only your valid photo ID. Many must be located in industrial areas deemed part of a “green zone”. But a few outlets are as quaint as can be. Either way, many Sacramento clubs offer world-class, top-shelf flowers grown locally, thanks to one of the most surprisingly hospitable marijuana business climates around. Here’s five that should be on your list.Find Your Preferred Cannabis Nearby
