Although I live in Encino, I have stayed in various places around Los Angeles since moving to southern California with my family in elementary school. I’m attracted to the mountains, especially the areas like Tarzana, Santa Maria, and my current residence in Encino along Alonzo Ave. Despite being in Encino, I’m starting to shop in Tarzana and considering a move to a neighborhood near Corbin Canyon Park. I love the climate and the beautiful mountain backdrop to the south. Being in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles is great because you get to live in perhaps some of the nicest neighborhoods in the entire area. If you like to go hiking and take pictures from mountain peaks, your ideal destination is just a few minutes to the south. And since there are new cannabis dispensaries opening all of the time in Tarzana, it’s a nice place to visit or shop from even if you live in Encino like I do. The new Tarzana cannabis dispensary is a cannabis delivery service only. They don’t have a storefront—you use their website to create an order and then a person from the company calls to confirm your address and the time of your delivery. If you order before 7pm, you can get two-hour delivery windows. This is amazing if you work from home or don’t like to get in the car and risk dealing with Los Angeles traffic all the way back into Encino, Tarzana, and Santa Maria. My delivery from the dispensary in Tarzana contained some of the dankest smelling cannabis flower buds that I have purchased since moving to southern California.
