Substance: A Recreational and Medical Cannabis Dispensary

Substance is a community dispensary in Bend, Oregon that provides safe access to recreational and medical marijuana in a judgment-free environment. We strive to interact consciously and thoughtfully with everyone in our community.

Substance wants our clients and staff to feel cared for, to be recognized as important members of society, and to leave our facility inspired to be positive ambassadors for cannabis.

We are a comfortable, safe, consultative place to access medicine that has been stigmatized and criminalized for ages. Patients have been self-medicating in isolation, feeling guilt and shame, for much of their lives. We intend to change patients’ perception of their own relationship to cannabis, and to change the community’s perspective of this misunderstood plant.

We strive to operate in a model that is based upon compassion and legal integrity. Substance operates in strict compliance with the letter and the spirit of Oregon’s medical cannabis laws.

Medical vs. Recreational Cannabis

As a recreational and medical cannabis dispensary, Substance offers products for adults with or without a medical marijuana card.

Patients who are 18 years or older can purchase medical marijuana if they have a qualifying medical condition and have been approved for a medical marijuana card. In Oregon, you would need to apply for an OMMP (Oregon Medical Marijuana Program) card. This program grants patient cards to Oregon residents with the written recommendation of a physician, an MD or DO.

A recreational consumer seeks cannabis for enjoyment rather than health purposes. There are differences in how much cannabis you can purchase and in the potency of products depending on if it’s for recreational or medical use.

At Substance Cannabis Market, we provide safe access to medical and recreational cannabis in a variety of forms. See what’s on the menu today at a location closest to you.
