Dispensary Near SoMa
Our mission at Flore goes beyond top-quality cannabis. Our business is rooted in compassion, and our homebase of San Francisco has played a pivotal role in shaping cannabis legislation. In 1991, San Francisco residents approved Proposition P in support of the medical use of cannabis. In 1992, a bill was passed which allowed for the distribution of medical cannabis throughout the city, culminating in the first public cannabis dispensary, The San Francisco Cannabis Buyers Club which opened in 1994. Just two years later in 1996, California became the first state to legalize medical cannabis. In the same year, the founder of Flore Dispensary, Terrance Alan, opened one of the first Prop 215 medical cannabis dispensaries in Castro called CHAMP. Now decades later, Prop 64 allowed for the opening of Flore Dispensary.
There’s so much to see and do in our beloved city – cannabis history is just one of the many facets of our vibrant and diverse urban landscape. From the funky streets of The Castro to the modern, soaring lofts of SoMa and Latino roots and old school taquerias of the Mission District, there’s a reason SF was named one of the “world’s best cities”. Sites like the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, the scenic, winding Lombard Street and the emblematic corner of Haight and Ashbury Streets have become synonymous with San Francisco’s allure in popular culture. A great way to revel in the city’s vast cultural offerings is to visit SoMa. Visitors to “South of Market” can choose from a wide variety of museums and entertainment right in the downtown area. In fact, SoMa is conveniently located close to Flore Dispensary, so it’s a great place to start your day exploring the lively streets of San Francisco.

Visit Flore Dispensary and make your way to SoMa’s vast warehouse district to revel at the sleek and modern architecture, art museums, and upscale nightlife.
SoMa, which stands for South of Market, encompasses a large swath of the city including Mission Bay and South Beach. It’s well-known as the place where the Giants play baseball at AT&T Park and for the acclaimed San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The neighborhood was once an industrial zone containing little more than warehouses. Over the past twenty years, an influx of new residents with ample piggy banks introduced a vibrant arts scene, and transitioned warehouse spaces into condos and night clubs.
There are tons of museums in SoMa, making it a prime stop on the lists of both tourists and locals. The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art became the first major museum to operate in SoMa. Also referred to as SFMOMA, the museum is a world-class arts institution with a formidable collection that spans the 1500’s through to today. Visit the museum to see exhibitions by artworld giants like Rene Magritte and Wayne Thiebaud. If you’d prefer a museum that delves into culture and history, head to the Contemporary Jewish Museum (CJM) or the Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD). These options are especially great if you happen to be in the neighborhood on one of San Francisco’s infamous chilly, foggy days.
If the sun is shining, take a trip to Yerba Buena Gardens, which is conveniently located surrounding the neighborhood’s many museums. This area includes two blocks of public parks located between Third and Fourth, Mission and Folsom Streets. A pedestrian bridge over Howard Street connects the two blocks, sitting on top of part of the Moscone Center convention center. The Yerba Buena Gardens was built as the centerpiece of the Yerba Buena Redevelopment Area and includes the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. The gardens are a lush respice from the noisy and bustling streets of downtown and offer visitors a variety of areas to sit and relax, as well as a plethora of public art. Public art and greenspace aren’t the only things that Yerba Buena Gardens offers visitors. Here you can find a memorial to Martin Luther King Jr., an ice skating and bowling center, the California Historical Society, and a variety of serene garden spaces.
History buffs have a lot to choose from in SoMa, if you’re interested in a bit of San Francisco’s licentious past, stroll the Barbary Coast Trail located along a narrow street that branches off Market and heads into the Tenderloin. Passersby will discover sidewalks studded with bronze markers that lead the way for visitors to follow and learn about the area’s history. A little bit of debauchery paves the way for cities with interesting and colorful histories and San Francisco is certainly one of those cities. While you’re taking this self-guided tour, dip into several boutiques and watering holes along the way.
The LGBTQ+ community has made considerable contributions to the history and culture of San Francisco including in the SoMa neighborhood. Nightlife here is packed with LGBTQ+ strongholds like the SF Eagle Leather Bar and Oasis. Stop by these establishments to experience world-famous drag shows and live music. If you’re in town in September, catch The Folsom Street Fair, the largest leather alternative street fair in the country celebrating “Leather Pride Week,” BDSM and leather subcultures.
