Who We Are

We believe in the power of sustainably produced cannabis products for health, wellness, and social connection. We want to move beyond stigma, beyond stereotype, to deliver enriching and natural experiences in a welcoming environment where even someone who’s brand new to cannabis feels at home.

We’re believers in balance—balance in life, balance in work, and balance in what we put into our bodies. We believe in exploring new and natural ways for everyone aged 21+ to access relaxation, fun, joy, and personal wellness through cannabis.

The Farmacy is Santa Barbara’s first-ever 21+ cannabis retail store, a dream that was more than three years in the making.
It would not be possible without you, and we are so grateful for your support and loyalty

Thank you for believing in us, we look forward to being here for you for years to come.

The Farmacy SB Events

The amount of consideration and attention to detail is readily apparent for those with the eye to notice; The Farmacy feels clean but not clinical, relaxed but not aloof, and serious about its’ customers care and satisfaction. At no point did I feel corralled or upsold towards anything nor did I feel like I was wasting anyone’s time with prosaic questions. The wares speak for themselves, well divorced from the more lurid and unsavory narratives and connotations about cannabis that have taken hold over the years.

    Age Limit

    21 and over. At check-in you will be asked to provide your identification to prove your age. Don’t forget to bring a valid driver’s license, state id or passport.

    Daily Purchase Limit

    Under the Adult Use Marijuana Act (AUMA) you can purchase and carry up to one ounce (28.5 grams) of cannabis and up to eight grams of concentrated cannabis.


    It is against the law for you to have an open container of cannabis in a vehicle while driving or riding in the passenger seat. It is illegal to smoke cannabis in an operating vehicle. Be safe. Be smart.


    The cost of cannabis—a lot goes into it. To make it easy to understand the actual amount you’ll pay at the counter, we include the Excise Tax of 15% and the SB City Cannabis Tax of 6% in the pricing of all our products. At the Farmacy, what you see is what you’ll pay.


    You can use cannabis on private property. You cannot use, smoke, eat, or vape adult-use cannabis in public places. Santa Barbara is a smoke-free city.

    Neighborhood Deal

    If ever there were a local corner in this town, this is it. We used to rent videos from our shop’s former inhabitants. Landmark storefronts, coffee shops, and restaurants surround us. Bring in a same-day purchase receipt from one of the neighboring businesses and take home a pre-roll for $5.

    Payment Methods

    The Farmacy accepts cash payments, debit transactions and cashless prepay powered by Stronghold. Debit transactions will be rounded up to the nearest dollar amount and accompanied by a $2.75 transaction fee. Some banks may charge their cardholders an additional fee in accordance with their own policies. There is also an ATM across the street at the Daily Grind if you prefer.

    Unfortunately, due to federal regulations, we cannot accept credit cards. We hope this will change in the next few years.
