The state of California and local municipalities place numerous taxes on legal marijuana. We build part of this tax into our prices to avoid sticker shock at our locations.

Here is a breakdown of current cannabis taxes:

Recreational Marijuana (adult-use) customers:

  1. State Excise Tax for cannabis: 15%
  2. State/local sales tax: 7.75% (in Riverside County)
  3. Local cannabis sales tax: 0% in Riverside County

Medical Marijuana Patients:
Patients with a medical marijuana ID card (MMIC) or doctor’s recommendation save on some of the taxes above. This is a little confusing. Here are the details:

  1. All patients pay state excise tax (15%).
  2. Patients with a MMIC do not pay state sales tax (7.75%)
  3. Patients with a doctor’s recommendation (but no MMIC) pay state sales tax (7.75%).
