Outliers Collective (OutCo) is an El Cajon Medical Marijuana Dispensary
Outliers Collective, adjacent to Gillespie Field in El Cajon, offers licensed, safe access to medical marijuana for qualifying patients. We strive to be pioneers in California’s medical cannabis industry, recognizing our immense responsibility to our patients and hold our processes and services to the highest possible standards.
Launched in response to a lack of safe, quality access to medical cannabis in the El Cajon and San Diego area, Outliers Collective is proud to be the first licensed medical marijuana dispensary in San Diego County. We opened in July 2014 and have been serving the cannabis community continuously, at the same location, ever since.
Outliers Collective is managed by OutCo, a full-vertical, licensed purveyor of medical cannabis. As an industry pioneer, OutCo sets a new standard for cultivation, extraction, distribution, and research. Embracing wellness while rooted in science, OutCo delivers the highest quality products that support customer, partner, and community needs. Founded in 2015, OutCo has grown into the largest legal cultivator in Southern California. In 2018, we plan to expand to the recreational cannabis sector as well as throughout San Diego with additional dispensary locations.
Our team here at Outlier's cares about our patients and their medical marijuana needs. Our knowledgeable budtenders take the time to understand our patients' needs, walk you through our cannabis selection and assist you on your journey to wellness.
We are proud to offer OutCo strains, concentrates and infused teas. As a seed-to-sale company, we maintain control of our products at every stage, from cultivation to harvest, curing, extraction, packaging and sale. Our indoor grows use natural, sustainable products to ensure the highest quality products. OutCo has the only extraction license in San Diego County, allowing us to produce our own oil and vape cartridges using OutCo strains and supercritical CO2 extraction methods in our state-of-the-art lab.
Our patients particularly love our OutCo Diamond OG, which typically tests at 24.5% THC. In addition to specialty flowers and extractions, Outliers also offers patients a selection of vendor cannabis goods, including CBD balms, topicals, tinctures, and an array of glass and smoking accessories.
Based in El Cajon, Outliers lies in central San Diego county and serves qualifying patients throughout the area. Patients from the El Cajon, Santee, Winter Gardens, Hillsdale, Jamacha, Homelands, Spring Valley, Lemon Grove, La Mesa, Grossmont, Casa de Oro-Mount Helix, Jamul, Bostonia, La Presa, Rolando, Del Cerro, Lakeside, Eucalyptus Hills, Blossom Valley, Harbison Canyon, Crest, Dehesa, Granite Hills, Alpine, Miramar and Bonita regions all have quick, easy access to Outliers near the intersection of 8 & 67.
El Cajon is a larger city in San Diego County, surrounded by mountains and northeast of downtown San Diego. Nearby Mission Trails Regional Park offers miles of hiking trails and mountain views down to the Lake Murray area. Grossmont College lies on the western side of the city along Highway 125, and Gillespie Field flies small planes in and out of the area. The Grossmont Center Theatre in southwest El Cajon offers Target, Restoration Hardware Outlet, Guitar Center, Macy’s and Barnes & Noble. From the sizable Parkway Plaza with its carousel to the Santee Trolley Square, Outliers proudly serves our El Cajon patients and beyond.

I was so excited when i walked in the door. Being only my second experience in a dispensary I was super impressed with the atmosphere and professional attitude of the staff. The other patients waiting in the lobby were friendly and just as excited to be there. I enjoyed the one on one aspect, I felt special and taken care of. But that's right about where it ended. I was so stoked when I was admiring the selection at the counter, and becoming giddy with excitement over the quality of flower I was to receive. Then I was told that all of the orders were pre packaged in the back. So I was no longer aware of what exactly I was to be receiving. I got my free gram as a FTP, and within that one gram there were 5 seeds, and a lot of stick-y stems. I also purchased 4 prerolls, one of which had a tear in the side, so it would not burn properly. I was just really disappointed, because I feel like what I was shown is not what I got. I dont necessarily know if I would return. :( I really thought I had found my place.

Great location, good parking, safe area and high quality product. Front desk is great and the tenders are all helpful. Outco house strains are fantastic. Check them out, you'll be a regular.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE SWEET REVIEW! We love the feedback, come see us again soon! :) -OutCo
this place is great. Very consistent
Happy to hear you think we're great! Thanks and have a great day! -OutCo
1 star for location! So convenient that it's right off the freeway. 2 stars for great staff!! 3 stars for great quality flower. Minus one star for no first patient deals, nor small gift, also minus one star for taxed prices. 4 star over all rating ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Our FTP deal is $10grams on ANY strain, All the way up! (No Limit) AND a free gram of your choice! Also, because we are a legally operating facility, taxes are a MUST. I just took a look back at your invoice and did in fact notice that you did not receive your FTP deal. Please stop in at your earliest convenience to get your free gram for compensation! Call (619) 448-4420 with any questions or concerns. Thank you -OutCo
I feel comfortable going in by myself since I'm a female. Always friendly, helpful staff. I will keep going there for product!
We are glad to hear that you enjoy your visits and we have gained a loyal customer. Thank you for the review - Outco
I really want to try your new cartridges, but the last ones were so bad, and the new ones are double the price. I understand that you're a business first and profits are important. I understand that charging the highest price the market will bare is business sense 101. However, when competitors like Brass Knuckles and 710KingPen have a slightly higher quality product for $30/500mg, it's hard to justify paying $40. Especially when you're making the product yourselves, so your wholesale costs are below those of other dispensaries carrying those name brands. I love your shop, the staff is excellent, and these prices are not "unfair"... but if the goal is profits, it seems to me that you'll sell more units and make even more by keeping your prices in line with the rest of the industry.
We believe that our cartridges are very high quality and a lot of hard work goes into the whole process from start to finish. We do not use sythentic pestcides on our plants, extraction is done in our on-site, state of the art lab, and our cartridges consistently test at 75-85% THC. Plus, we do also offer a buy 2 get 1 FREE deal that is ALL day EVERYDAY. Our patients are of the utmost importance to us, and that is why we strive to provide the best product possible. We are sorry to hear you had a negative experience while we took the time to experiment with different cartridges and formulations as our on-site production came online, but we think we've really nailed it now, so we we invite you, and all of our patients, to take advantage of our "buy two, get one free" deal all day, every day. Thank You - OutCo
Stopped in on Friday for some flowers, and cartridges. Took advantage of the buy 2 get 1 free on the cartridges, and some Afghani. The Afghani is so good. Works great for chillin' out my anxiety.
If you haven't tried their vape cartridges, you should. Best I've used. Do yourself a favor, spend the $10 on their battery. The setup is solid 👌🏻 and looks cool. Thanks again!
Glad to hear you are enjoying everything thank you for the great feed back -Outco
Love this place clean, safe, staff is great good buds close to home .
Glad to hear you are supporting local and loving it. Thank you for the review -Outco
stopped in for my med refill while in town last Saturday, even with a couple of people in front of me the staff still got me in and out of there pretty quick. The staff is great, they always make me feel welcome 👌🏻. I liked the Afghani so I had to get more. Works well for calming my anxiety, and kidney stone pain over the last weekend.
Thank you for the review! Glad you had another great visit and we could get you in and out smoothly. We are happy to hear our products are working wll for you. - Outco
