It is updated several times throughout the day to ensure accuracy and convenience for our Members.
What are concentrates / what is a dab?
Concentrates are refined cannabis extracts. Using cannabis flowers, trim, or shake, extract artists remove the active cannabinoids from the plant material. The result is a concentrated version of the medicine from which it came.
A dab is a way of in-taking this cannabis extract through vaporization. Dabbing is when you take a small amount of cannabis concentrate and vaporize it by dropping it directly onto a hot titanium nail or glass piece, then inhale the vapor through a glass water piece.
How do you determine quality of the medical cannabis?
We utilize full spectrum testing to determine the quality of the medication. This includes potency levels for all available cannabinoids. In addition to potency our testing also screens for any substances like pesticides and mold. This ensures that our medicine is the highest quality, and always safe and potent.
Do you test for THC and CBD?
Bloom Room opts for full spectrum Lab Testing and Screening. That means, we collect potency data on all available cannabinoids: THC, CBD, CBN, CBC, THCV, and CBG. In addition to potency testing, all our medicine is also screened for chemical residue like pesticides or solvents, as well as microbiological organisms like bacteria or mold. The result is quality medicine that is always safe and potent.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound in cannabis that has significant medical benefits but does not make the patient feel “stoned”. In fact, CBD can actually counter the psychoactivity of THC. The reduced psychoactivity of CBD-rich cannabis may make it an appealing treatment option for patients seeking anti-inflammatory, anti-pain, anti-anxiety, anti-psychotic, and/or anti-spasm effects without disconcerting lethargy or dysphoria.
How much edible should I eat? What is an edible dose?
Edibles affect everyone differently. Your experience may vary depending on what you’ve eaten and how much you weigh. It is very easy to consume and ingest too much cannabis edibles which can result in varying degrees of temporary anxiety, so please be careful. The best way to see how an edible will affect you is to eat a very little and wait at least two hours before consuming more. You may find that edibles pieces (caramel corn, peanuts, chocolate bites) may be best, because you can eat a couple pieces at a time and sustain a mild medicated affect for a long time. Although overdosing on edibles can be easy, it can only make you feel uncomfortable and is never actually dangerous to your health.
As far as doses and milligrams, doses are the Edible Chef’s subjective interpretation of what a proper single dose is; the perfect amount for the average person. Milligrams, is a more scientific and accurate way of displaying strength. When an edible maker puts the milligrams of active cannabinoids on their packaging, it’s because they have gotten the edible lab tested and are displaying the lab results. Patients will unlikely feel anything below 10mg. The average (subjective) dose is between 20-50mg although many patients can consume +100mg per day.
Can I split up my eighth?
We do not split our eighths into grams or half eighths. All our pre-weighed eighths and grams are always weighed over to ensure that they are at least the advertised weight.
Do you sell ounces?
We offer ounce specials on all our top-shelf strains plus, we have a mix-and-match ounce deal. You may purchase a mix-and-match ounce of which ever 8 eighths you'd like for $375 - equal to our top-shelf ounce price.

Do you accept out-of-state cannabis recommendations or prescriptions?
California law strictly prohibits us from accepting patients from out-of-state. Along with a recommendation for medical cannabis, we must also collect California Driver's License/ID or Proof of CA Residency (State ID/Driver’s License, residency affidavit, utility bill, rental lease) upon your first visit.
Are you a doctor’s office?
Bloom Room is not a doctor’s office. There is very little association between doctor’s offices and dispensaries for obvious conflict of interest issues. Bloom Room acts like a pharmacy for medical cannabis patients who have a valid doctor’s recommendation for medical cannabis. We have a world class selection of cannabis flowers, concentrates, edibles, pre rolls and tinctures available for purchase by legal cannabis patients.
Is there a sign-up fee?
There are no fees for Bloom Room membership except for the cost of the medicine you purchase, however, there are some free benefits. Some of the benefits to membership include Free Massage, Free Chiropractic, Access to Free Product Samplings, Cooking with Cannabis Workshops, Compassion for Low Income Patients, and more -all available at our Dispensary location.
Why do I need to sign up?
Bloom Room is a medical cannabis cooperative. To buy or sell cannabis to the cooperative, you need to become a member of the cooperative. We have nearly 20K cooperative members and the sign up process is just a regular part of visiting dispensaries like ours. The cooperative membership of patients and our medical cannabis dispensary business license are the two things that separate us from someone who is selling cannabis illegally.
What if I am interested in becoming a vendor?
The Bloom Room always welcomes new vendors. Since we are a Not for profit Collective we do require membership of all of our vendors. Once that is complete we can accept a sample of your medical cannabis product, and if we chose to offer your product our buyer will contact you.

What are your vending hours?
We do not have regular vending hours however, potential vendors are welcome to leave a sample of their product and fill out our vendor form, for consideration by our Buyer. If the Buyer is interested in offering your product at the Collective, you will be contacted via the information you left on the vendor form.
