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. Prior to that we operated as a compliant nonprofit collective delivery service under the SB420 guidelines. 

One of our most recent mentions, and the one we are most proud of, is our opening of our Pot Lifer Museum. This exhibit is a reminder of the harsh “War on Drugs” treatment some non-violent cannabis offenders received and who continue to serve life sentences.

The following are all of our media mentions, just click any link to view the full PDF document.
