Frequently Asked Questions

General Delivery

How far is your delivery radius? Why the charge?

APC has a 15-mile delivery RADIUS. Any patient wishing to place an order outside of that 15 mile radius can still be serviced with the same great quality medicine, however the donation of a variable delivery fee applies (based upon mileage). This fee goes towards the driver’s gas for the minimum 30+ mile round trip from our office, to you, and back, to bring you the same great meds we offer to most of Central San Diego County. Again, we are a collective working TOGETHER towards the same goals and we sincerely appreciate your cooperation. Click here to view delivery area

APC Policies

Do I need a doctor's recommendation to order from APC?

Yes! PLEASE have ALL of your information handy before placing your call. This includes your current CALIFORNIA doctor’s recommendation, as well as your driver’s license and proof of residency if you are an out-of-state patient. Unfortunately, state law forbids us from accepting patients with out of state doctor’s recommendations (Ex. Arizona). We can refer you to local San Diego doctors, though!

Do I need a California I.D. to be a member with APC?

Yes. Due to tightening regulations in the County of San Diego, APC now requires all new patients to have a valid California I.D. or Driver’s License.  Student I.D.’s are not acceptable forms of ID. We apologize for changing policy and any inconvenience this may cause.

What are your goals?

To provide safe access to medical cannabis while demonstrating the highest level of professional, ethical, and legal standards possible.

Menu Questions

Do you have clones?

Often we do, updated regularly on the menu! We typically have many clones at various life-cycle stages available for same-day delivery! Please note however, that the availability of certain strains depends on popularity at the given time and some strains may require a pre-order. Placing a call to APC never hurts though, so feel free to phone in with any questions about clones.

What should I order?

APC’s up to date offerings are currently on our webstore. Having a general idea of your order doesn’t hurt when placing your call, although, our office staff is happy to help with any and all of your questions or concerns. We strive to offer you the best recommendation based on your medicinal needs. We take pride in our expertise on cannabis.


Do you offer any special discounts?

YES! Read More. Veterans receive 10% off up to $10! Seniors can enjoy SENIOR SUNDAY! Anyone over the age of 60 qualifies for $5 off their entire order EVERY Sunday! Students also may take advantage of APC’s Student Sunday Special: $5 off your total donation EVERY Sunday! APC also offers a Compassionate Discount for those patients who suffer from terminal illness, disability, or another form of chronic, debilitating condition ** Please note, for all special discounts (except our Compassionate Discount) valid proof is required for eligibility, thank you for understanding! *

Can I combine strains (Mix N' Match) and get the discounted larger quantity price?

YES! Example: Let’s say you want two different strains of a half-ounce each, totaling a full ounce in quantity for your donation. Some collectives charge per half ounce a la carte … but not APC!! We apply the “bulk discount” price to various combinations of patient donations.
