Welcome OC3 to the Catalyst Family

A New Chapter in Santa Ana’s Cannabis Community

We are thrilled to announce that OC3 has officially joined the Catalyst family! As of this year, Catalyst has acquired OC3, a legacy cannabis dispensary that has proudly served the Santa Ana community since September 2015. This strategic acquisition marks a significant milestone for both OC3 and Catalyst, driven by mutual necessity and shared values.

What is happening to Catalyst Santa Ana?

The expansion of the 55 freeway into Catalyst Santa Ana’s parking lot presented a tough decision for us —close the store or relocate. Simultaneously, OC3, a staple in the Santa Ana cannabis scene for nearly nine years, was owned by a smaller company looking to sell due to economic conditions. This acquisition was a perfect match, benefiting both OC3 and Catalyst. For the time being, customers who shop at Catalyst Santa Ana are encouraged to visit Catalyst OC3 Santa Ana. 

What to Expect with Catalyst OC3 Santa Ana

Catalyst is dedicated to our motto, “Weed For The People,” and this will remain our guiding principle as we integrate OC3 into our operations. Customers can look forward to:

  • Community Engagement: Ongoing initiatives like community events & local support
  • Extended Hours: Monday to Thursday, 9:00 AM – 9:30 PM, and Friday to Sunday, 8:00 AM – 9:30 PM.

Preserving OC3’s Legacy

While there will be some exciting changes, we are committed to preserving the best aspects of OC3:

  • Senior Discounts: We are grandfathering OC3’s senior discount.
  • Rewards Program: Customers will continue to receive points for every $1 spent.
