What is the Riddler OG Kush Strain?
Riddler OG is a top shelf hybrid medical cannabis strain. Most patients find this medication hits like a 50/50 mix of Indica and Sativa, although it may lean more on the Indica side. The Riddler works well for mild daytime pain relief. True connoisseurs will appreciate the signature OG taste and smell.
How Much is the Top Shelf Donation Price at your Dispensary in Los Angeles?
Our top shelf strains, including the Riddler OG, costs $20 per gram or $45 per 1/8th for our full members. Temporary patients on the free 6 month trial membership pay $50 per 1/8th as a top shelf donation.
What is a Pre-ICO Dispensary? Is Humboldt Relief Pre-ICO?
A pre-ICO dispensary is a collective in Los Angeles that opened before the 2007 moratorium imposed by the city. As a result of Proposition D, no shops that opened after the moratorium are permitted to stay open. Pre-ICO dispensaries in the San Fernando Valley are few and far between, but we are proud to be one of the last caregivers serving the Reseda area and beyond. We are legal to operate as long as we stay in compliance with the local regulations. So far we have not had any problems meeting their guidelines.
Can I Still Use a Humboldt Relief Coupon from the July Issue of Green Acres Magazine?
Sorry, we cannot honor discount coupons that already expired. If you look carefully at those coupons, you will see that they are only valid until July 31st, which was almost 2 weeks ago. We are working on new promotions to save you money on your favorite meds, so stay tuned! We will let you know as soon as more discounts are available. One Love!

Salute the Hemp Flag on Independence Day!
We saw this in the news today and thought we’d share this important milestone on the road to legalization in the US. Today for the first time in 80 years, a flag made entirely of hemp is flying over our nation’s capital in Washington D.C. The flag was made in Colorado, where commercial hemp production is permitted under Amendment 64. Read the full story on on MedicalJane.com:
Los Angeles medical marijuana patients may be confused about their local dispensaries’ legal status with the passage of Measure D. The new dispensary ordinance states that all cannabis collectives must close unless they belong to the list of pre-ico shops compiled by the City Council. Before we get to the list, we want to make sure everyone understands what’s going on. Below are FAQs about MMJ in LA:
What is a Pre-ICO dispensary?
In Los Angeles, dispensaries are divided into 2 groups: pre and post ICO. The acronym “ICO” stands for Interim Control Ordinance, so pre ICOs existed before the ordinance whereas post ICOs opened afterwards. In 2007, the Los Angeles City Council decided that there were too many medical cannabis clubs operating in LA.and attempted to limit the number of shops while they drafted regulations through City Ordinance 179027. At that time, there were approximately 186 dispensaries throughout LA. These shops, including Humboldt Relief (serving LA patients since 2006), registered with the city in order to stay open in the meantime.
While the law clearly stated that only dispensaries on the pre-ICO list were permitted, a few skilled attorneys found some legal loopholes for shops to exploit. For example, the law stated that cannabis providers could file for “hardship exemption” applications in the hopes that the city would allow them to operate despite their opening up after the 2007 cut off date. By the time the Council got around to addressing the applications, about 500 awaited their response. In June of 2009, the City unilaterally denied dozens of hardship applications; many were rejected without allowing any discussion or comments from the post-ICO dispensary owners. Rather than continue to answer the applications, city officials voted to stop accepting them, which effectively sealed the fate of collectives who opened after the moratorium. Many post-ICO dispensaries ignored the city and continued to operate and hundreds more have opened since 2009.
How Many Pre-ICO and Post-ICO Dispensaries are in Los Angeles?
That’s hard to say because no one really knows the extra number of cannabis collectives in Los Angeles. Even some of the pre-ICO shops have closed since the first list was released in 2007. Officials estimate that about 135 of the original pre-ICOs are still in business and at least 800 to 1,000 post-ICOs are scattered throughout the city.
What Will Happen to the Pre-ICOs and Post-ICOs Because of Measure D?
No one can say for certain what’s going to happen to all of the dispensaries in Los Angeles. So far, the city sent out warning letters to post-ICO collectives notifying them that they must close or risk prosecution. The city is supposed to send letters to the pre-ICO collectives letting them know what they must do to comply with the new regulations.
Which Clubs Will Be Open After Measure D Goes Into Effect?
In theory, all of the post-ICO dispensaries will close down. The remaining pre-ICO collectives will only be allowed to stay open if they’re able to comply with a series of time, place, and manner restrictions in Measure D. For instance, the law limits dispensary operating hours to 10am to 8pm, which is one of the reasons why have our schedule set up this way. We’ve made every effort to comply with the city’s standards, and we will do everything in our power to continue serving our patients and the MMJ community.
That said, here is the full list of the original pre-ICO collectives; as stated above, even some of these shops are now closed. We do not know which collectives are still open besides our own, so please do not make any assumptions about other collectives’ status. You will need to contact these dispensaries directly to find out if they are open and how they plan to deal with Measure D.
