A cannabis distribution company received permission late last month to share a building with an existing cannabis business, but only if the company doesn’t operate on Sundays.
Herb Girl plans to operate in the northern portion of an existing building located at 1629 Ord Way in the Oceanside Gateway Business Park. The company will share the space with Left Coast, a cannabis manufacturing and distribution facility operating in the southern portion of the building.
The Oceanside City Council first approved Left Coast’s operations in 2020. Father-daughter business partners Mark and Linzie Campbell, owners of Herb Girl, have owned their portion of the building since 2009.
To operate a cannabis facility in Oceanside, a business must obtain a local license, a regulated use permit, and a state license. Cannabis falls under the city’s regulated uses, which means companies, including tattoo shops, liquor stores, smoke shops, and others, must earn a conditional use permit (CUP) from the city to begin operations.
As a regulated use, the city code requires buffer zones between them and other regulated uses, residential districts, churches, schools, and other sensitive sites. If a proposed business does not meet those distance requirements, it must submit location waivers along with its CUP application and justify why it should be granted permission to operate.
