Best selection in Monterey county

leading the way in the cannabis industry

Located in the heart of the Salinas Valley right off Highway 101, the name East of Eden is a nod to the Steinbeck roots that run deep in our local community. The retail space is designed with comfort in mind, mixing the feel of a classic art gallery with the rustic industrial design.
Our sprawling floor model and glass display cases invite customers to browse over 1,000 different items, including 80 different strains of flower, 75 different concentrates, and over 25 different cartridge brands. East of Eden is proud to have the largest inventory of all dispensaries in Monterey County.
