Does Mammoth Holistics sell marijuana for Adult Use as well as Medical Use?

Yes, Mammoth Holistics is very pleased to sell Adult Use cannabis. While we are thrilled to serve the adult community at large, we maintain our commitment to our medical marijuana customers.

What should I bring with me if I want to purchase recreational marijuana?

You must be 21 years of age and have a valid government-issued ID (driver’s license, passport, Federal ID card) to purchase cannabis products. Mammoth Holistics currently accepts both cash and debit card (service fees may apply). An ATM is located on-site for your convenience (charge will appear as ATM fee ATM Datastream 101 Old Mammoth Rd Mammoth on bank statements).

How much marijuana can I purchase?

According to California law, the daily purchase limits for Adult Use customers is 28.5 grams for non-concentrated cannabis, 8 grams for concentrated cannabis products, or 6 immature cannabis plants. For medical patients, the daily purchase limit is 8 ounces of medicinal cannabis. If a patient’s valid physician’s recommendation contains an amount exceeding the daily limit, the patient may purchase the amount recommended by the physician.

Why is it important to buy cannabis from a legal dispensary?

It is essential to purchase marijuana from a legal, licensed dispensary to ensure that the products you purchase are safe, lab-tested, and compliant with all California regulations. A legal cannabis dispensary will have its license number (ex. C10-0000617-LIC) displayed prominently on store premises, as well as security guards on-site.

How can I get a medical card online?

You can obtain a valid medical marijuana card online from a variety of providers. You can video conference with a doctor and have your medical card emailed to you, or you could obtain the California State Medical Marijuana ID Card, which will exempt you from the 7.75% state sales tax. You will need to visit your county department of public health by scheduling an in person visit to get this card.

What are the benefits of a medical marijuana card?

Mammoth Holistics offers a 10% discount to all of our medical members. Additionally, if you obtain a state-issued Medical Marijuana ID Card, you will be exempt from the 7.75% state sales tax.

What do I need in order to obtain a medical marijuana recommendation?

In order to obtain a medical marijuana recommendation you must be 18+ years old and be a California resident. Note that within Mammoth Lakes, only individuals 21+ are allowed to purchase from a dispensary, regardless of medical card status. You can not obtain a California medical marijuana recommendation if you are not a California resident.

What is considered a valid medical marijuana recommendation?

A medical marijuana recommendation is only valid if it is issued and signed by a licensed physician. The recommendation must also include a unique patient ID number, the date it was issued, and the date it expires. If the recommendation does not contain the required information, we cannot accept it as a valid medical recommendation. Only state-issued MMIC cardholders are exempt from the 7.75% State Sales Tax.

Now that Adult Use marijuana is legal, as a medical patient will I pay the same taxes as a recreational customer?

Based on the new rules and regulations that went into effect January 1, 2018, there are several types of tax on recreational customers: a 15% State Excise Tax, a 7.75% State Sales Tax, a 4% City Cannabis Tax, and a 1.5% Tourism Assessment Tax. State-issued MMIC cardholders are exempt from the 7.75% State Sales Tax. In addition, Mammoth Holistics offers a 10% discount to all medical cardholders.

Are medical patients subject to the same dosing restrictions as Adult Use customers after January 1, 2018?
