Tahoe Wellness Center was founded in 2009 and has served the medical cannabis patients of South Lake Tahoe as a compassionate cannabis dispensary, and is now available to serve anyone over the age of 21. Tahoe Wellness Center has always operated with compassion at the core of our mission, driving us, and enabling TWC to fund programs for low income and terminally ill patients, as well as a community center which has free services open to the greater community of Lake Tahoe.
Our mission is to show that cannabis is a positive part of a community, and when embraced by society, it creates far more good than harm - proving what is a decades long failed policy of criminalizing cannabis. As we have evolved over the past decade, we have created a vertically integrated model, allowing us to continue our compassionate model while maintaining a viable way into the future.
We are licensed as a Cannabis Micro-Business by the State of California. That license type comprises four uses of which we have been licensed by our city to operate since 2011. It all began with cultivation, as our experience began in the late nineties in Mendocino County. We evolved in 2009, from the farm into a retail operation in South Lake Tahoe. From the beginning we built an in-house cultivation facility and created a licensed extraction facility. The license also comprises in house distribution within the new California regulations.
Tahoe Wellness Center also helps operate a licensed farm in Mendocino county where we produce some of the highest quality sun grown cannabis in the world. We have been producing cannabis at this farm since 2005. Tahoe Wellness Center supports the cottage industry of cannabis, and will continue to support small farms while preserving the true spirit of cannabis, with our number one priority of ensuring there is safe access to quality cannabis for our community!
