Dispensary Showcase: CHR in Los Angeles, California

Published on January 30, 2016 · Last updated January 6, 2022

California has long been a proving ground for cannabis. Every time I return to Los Angeles and the surrounding areas, I’m reminded of the pungent, piney stronghold that OG Kush has on the region. Every dispensary shelf is lined with a seemingly endless count of OG phenotypes and spin-offs of the famed West Coast favorite. The shelves of California Herbal Remedies (CHR) are no different. But their commitment to quality flower, the finest shatters, and live resins — along with their focus on patient care — give CHR an edge over other shops nearby.

Where to Find Them

CHR is located at the north end of the 710 freeway. The dispensary is situated right behind Cal State Los Angeles at 5470 Valley Blvd.

Their Philosophy

CHR is dedicated to making sure that every patient leaves happy and with the best meds for their needs. Most of their regulars know what they want when they arrive, but the friendly folks at CHR are happy to help find the right strain for newcomers, too. Lexi, a manager at CHR, explains:

“If they don’t know what they want, then we have our awesome budtenders here to help them out.”

Why We Love Them

CHR goes above and beyond to show that their patients are appreciated. They regularly host patient-appreciation celebrations at the dispensary, featuring deals, giveaways, and celebrity guests such as rapper Too $hort. Aside from their great patient parties, CHR lists over 70 lab-tested strains on their menu, including shop favorite CHR Super OG.
