July 26, 2017 -- San Francisco -- The Apothecarium, a family-owned medical cannabis dispensary, today

only dispensary north of Post St in San Francisco and South of Fairfax in Marin County.
“We asked our design team to create an environment that would put first-time cannabis patients at ease
as soon as they enter the dispensary,” said Hudson. “The Apothecarium Marina features a mix of
traditional and contemporary design – combining many of the visual elements of our flagship Castro
dispensary with fresh, new details unique to the Marina location.”
The new facility is approximately 2,300 square feet and was designed by interior design firm Urban
Chalet and Vincent Gonzaga, who served as project manager.
In addition to providing patients with medical cannabis, The Apothecarium runs significant community
engagement programs, including:
Giving $350,000 in cash donations to community nonprofits since opening in 2011
Offering free support groups to patients, including a women's’ health group and a U.S. Veterans group
Sponsoring educational events open to the public, including classes on cancer and cannabis
Giving regular dispensary tours to physicians and other healthcare professionals
