Cannabis Megastore Coming to the OC

Santa Ana is the only city in Orange County that permits commercial cannabis — and it’s about to become home to the largest cannabis dispensary in the entire state.

Planet 13, which already operates a retail facility in Las Vegas, plans to open its Santa Ana superstore next month. P13 OC will be mind-bogglingly large at 55,000 square feet. It will be located at 3400 West Warner Avenue, 7 miles south of Disneyland.

P13’s Vegas store sees around 100,000 people a month. The OC location will hire 250 employees, including 80 budtenders.

Santa Ana has reaped enormous benefits from its embrace of cannabis so far. Pot remained a steady source of revenue during the pandemic as sales tax intake dropped dramatically across the state. The opening of P13 OC will mark Santa Ana’s biggest cannabis bonanza to date.
