Long Beach, CA Real Estate & Cannabis Regulations

Cannabis Status: Open

One of the earliest cities to embrace cannabis in California, Long Beach has long been a hub for the industry. While the city is capped out for dispensaries, the prime centralized location makes it a perfect location for manufacturers looking to serve the Los Angeles and Orange County communities.

The city is currently working on ordinances that would allow delivery-only businesses to operate in the city, along with a rare shared-use manufacturing license type, which lets multiple cannabis manufacturers operate out of a single facility.
