Sespe Creek Collective has been recognized in the media many times since we opened our doors on Nov 2 2017 as the first licensed storefront dispensary in Ventura County. Reading our early press mentions prior to California legalizing cannabis for adult use is now like reading history taking shape: since 2011 we have been on the front lines advocating for patients and pushing for fair regulation.
Here are some of our media mentions, click any link to view/hear the full story.
