Explore Cannabis Cove…
One of the unique characteristics of the 2021 Hueneme Beach Festival was the debut of the eagerly anticipated Cannabis Cove. This self-contained, secure tented venue houses some of Port Hueneme’s leading dispensaries and sponsors of the Festival. And the good news is that the Cove exceeded expectations!
With a welcoming interior design and relaxed ocean vibe, Cannabis Cove is where adults aged 21 and older can connect with representatives from participating dispensaries and place orders for cannabis or cannabis-related products. All sales transactions and fulfillment are handled at Oceanview Pavilion, across the street from the Festival, or at the dispensary locations in Port Hueneme.
For 2022, the Cove is being expanded to include a new outdoor lounge area where all Festival goers can visit with dispensary marketing representatives before those 21 and over can check out more inside the tent.
Traverse the Green Mile
Many dispensaries in the City of Port Hueneme—including those sponsoring the Hueneme Beach Festival—are in an area known as the Green Mile. Located four miles south of the US 101 freeway and mere minutes from the sandy beaches dotting the U.S. 1 highway, this beautiful one-mile stretch of road serves as the safe, secure, scenic home to Ventura County’s legal cannabis dispensaries, cultivators, and delivery services.
Perched on the leading edge of the regulated U.S. cannabis industry, the City of Port Hueneme is committed to the safety of all who participate in the purchase and recreational use of legal cannabis. The city-monitored dispensaries along the Green Mile are the only places where consumers can purchase carefully tested and regulated cannabis. Each dispensary must meet a rigorous certificate approval process and obtain a Conditional Use Permit — and all are required to employ only thoroughly vetted personnel, including a full-time security guard.
All along the Green Mile, cannabis sales revenue exceeded $60 million during the pandemic-challenged 2021. Area dispensaries draw more than 70,000 visitors each month, and a wide range of community partnerships have been established.
Real Roots in Port Hueneme
Roots matter — especially when your product comes from the earth. Each of the Hueneme Beach Festival’s participating cannabis dispensaries takes pride in serving as a strong corporate citizen within our community. They all possess a strong track record of not just involvement in Port Hueneme and surrounding areas but of truly giving back.
Port Hueneme dispensaries have worked hard to build bonds with local businesses, youth programs, community-based organizations, and law enforcement. Dispensaries have accounted for more than $1 million in community contributions since the inception of the Green Mile, including sizable donations to the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme, Habitat for Humanity, the Ventura Audubon Society, REEL Guppies, Movies in the Park, and others.
