Since the day they opened with only $15,000 and four jars, Purple Lotus has been a San Jose community staple for the last 12 years.
Purple lotus has always stayed true to two things. Having great quality flowers, and being for the community.
How it started
Purple Lotus’s founders were medical marijuana patients before legalizing adult use.
Countless visits to dispensaries in the Bay Area, especially San Jose, always led to inconsistent and poor-quality Cannabis. The medication was overpriced, overrated, and premium medication was mid-grade at best.
This led to establishing Purple Lotus in 2009, opening their first of many locations at 125 Jackson Street. Purple Lotus offered a variety of medical marijuana products and services to assist in the treatment of a variety of conditions.
Later, they were forced by the city to relocate to their 1879 Lundy location where from day one they had issues. While their new White Road storefront was being developed, Purple Lotus held it down for their patients.
The White Road location was a hot spot. After only ten hours of operation, the San Jose Sheriff’s department asked them to shut it all down. The corner of the building from which they were operating was annexed to the county. Even though they had permission from the city, the county had denied it. This was heartbreaking for the team but they were determined to keep fighting.
To keep doors open and keep providing patients with the medicine they need, Purple Lotus temporarily relocated to their 903 building, making it work with only eight parking spaces.
Now, they’re happily operating out of their 752 Commercial Street location. Open Monday – Friday from 9 am-9 pm offering delivery to all of the South and East Bay.
Even with all the struggles, obstacles, and setbacks, Purple Lotus has always kept its doors open. Purple Lotus is never closed, no matter what happens. They are 100% committed to having safe and affordable cannabis for their patients 365 days a year.
Fast forward to the legalization of recreational Adult-Use cannabis and they continue to go above and beyond to bring you top quality concentrates, cartridges, edibles, topicals, and of course the finest in CA-grown cannabis at every price range. We aim to provide a variety of choices for each guest.
