About US

HIGH TIDES offers Compassionate Cannabis Care in Gualala, CA. We are a fully stocked Collective offering In-House virtual Physician appointments, as well as Home Visitations & Service.

Located at the gateway to the Emerald Triangle, HIGH TIDES is in southern Mendocino county — which along with Humboldt and Trinity counties– is renowned worldwide for our outdoor cannabis production. Growers have been cultivating cannabis plants in this region since the 1960s, when the “Summer of Love” hippies decided to go “back to the land” oh so many decades ago.

However, the cannabis industry really took root in the Emerald Triangle with the passage of California Proposition 215, or the Compassionate Use Act of 1996, which legalized use of cannabis for medicinal purposes in California. California Proposition 215 was the first medical marijuana ballot initiative passed at the state level; causing the first of many conflict between states’ rights advocates and those who support a stronger federal presence.

It doesn’t really matter whether OG stands for “Ocean Grown”, “Original Ganstata” or “Original Genetics”, because growing and processing cannabis right here in the coastal Mendocino region of The Emerald Triangle is considered a way of life; and we locals recognize that pretty much everyone living in our area is either directly or indirectly reliant on the marijuana business.

And here at the HIGH TIDES, we are committed to “Mendocino Appellation Grown” cannabis, which means we support farmers, cultivators and producers of medicines grown and processed within 60 miles from HIGH TIDES.  As a patient, you can relax, knowing the medicines you buy from us are fair trade and support our local values to keep our community healthy and thriving.
