Big changes on the horizon! Happy New Year!

Welcome to the New Year. On January 2018, the state of California moves from a medical cannabis only state to a medical and recreational cannabis state. Growers, manufacturers, distributors, testing laboratories and dispensaries are all now required to file for licenses. Along with this, there are a lot of new taxes that will be incorporated into both medical and recreational cannabis products.

Below we will explain what this means to you as a medical patient of ours.

Excise Tax:

All products sold in the State of California will be subject to a 15% excise tax. This tax will be collected for both medical and recreational products. Our prices will be increased to account for this additional excise tax that we must pay the State of California.

Sales Tax:

If you have a valid medical recommendation card from a certified medical provider, you are exempt from paying state sales tax. In the future counties, local and city taxes may or may not be exempt for medical products. In the meantime, there are no state sales taxes for patients with a valid medical cannabis recommendation.

These new laws will go into effect January 1, 2018.

If you have a new medical recommendation, please make sure to take a picture of it and email the photo to We will need it for our records and to set you as tax exempt in our system. We will also be required to verify your ID, so please be patient with us if we ask for a photo of your ID as well.

To show our customer appreciation, for the Month of January 2018, we are extending a 15% off coupon code. Use the coupon code: CATAXREBATE from now until January 31st to get the discount. We truly appreciate your business and we do everything we can to provide you the highest quality products at reasonable prices.

We wish you a very happy, safe and prosperous New Year and look forward to serving you in 2018!
