As spring settles upon the San Bernardino Valley, there are plenty of reasons to visit Big Bear Lake. Not only does the small town boast the largest recreational lake in California, Big Bear offers many appealing attractions: from fishing to hiking to mountain biking, there’s an abundance of activity. For those looking to take a more relaxing approach to the all-natural recreation, Big Bear Lake has a variety of marijuana dispensaries and deliveries available, at affordable prices. From edibles to top-shelf strains, the cheapest weed in the Cali Mountain regions is just a phone call or a click away.
There are several distributors within the Big Bear and surrounding areas with competitive prices and a wide array of options, suiting different cannabis needs.
Take Over Meds
Take Over Meds, a delivery-only marijuana service and private co-op have been in operation since 2009. They offer a 10% discount for customers with disabilities, seniors, veterans, and cancer patients, plus a $5 off coupon for first-time visitors. Boasting sincere customer service, Take Over Meds grows all of its plants in-house, selling flower, edibles, topicals (starting at $28), extracts, and $7 pre-rolls.
There is no minimum order or delivery fee, and frequent visitor cards are available. They do accept credit and debit cards, which can be a rarity for marijuana dispensaries. Take Over Meds is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday through Wednesday, and noon to 8 p.m. on Thursday. They can be reached at (909) 713-4665.

SkyHighmeds Delivery is another Big Bear service for cheap California greenery, serving the San Bernardino mountain areas. Open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekly, SkyHighmeds offers similar medical cannabis products-menu items feature flower, edibles, topicals, sprays, and oils, and have a rotating specials list. Their gummy menu stands out: from $3 to $10, patrons can pick out gummy bears, worms, rings, and more, perfect for any sour or sweet tooth. Beef jerky too stands out, at $10.
SkyHighmeds does have a minimum of $30 for delivery, but they make up for it through their listing of several discounts: an $85 new member special, 10% off $200-plus, 15% off $400-plus orders, and $10 off for recycling 10 containers, with coupon codes available online.

Cold Creek Organics
Another dispensary option is Cold Creek Organics in Highland–a 32-mile drive–which acts as a viable source of reliable, close-to-the-mountains cannabis.

They offer several pocket-friendly perks: first time visitors receive a gift bag with a minimum purchase, their ‘Waxy Wednesday’ special deducts 10% on all concentrates, and the store has an appealing happy hour–Monday through Friday shoppers can enjoy 2 grams of top shelf strains for $25, from 4:20 to 6:20 p.m.
Cold Creek Organics also has a $45 cap on all 1/8 oz. products, which is an appealing deal unique to this dispensary. Grams of indica, sativa, and hybrids are all priced the same. A must-try is their Medipop Caramel Corn for $20. Their Facebook page, @ColdCreekOrganics, posts updates regularly.
