Tahoe Wellness Center was founded in 2009 and has served the medical cannabis patients of South Lake Tahoe as a compassionate cannabis dispensary, we are now available to serve anyone over the age of 21. Tahoe Wellness Center has operated with compassion at the core of our mission which has enabled TWC to fund programs for low income and terminally ill patients. Tahoe Wellness Center also funds a community center which has free services that are 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 then 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 that has allowed 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 a 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!
