Most dispensaries in the U.S. owe a deep gratitude to Harborside Health Center for not only being the model and carrying the flag for dispensaries across the country, but bearing an incredible amount of scrutiny and adversity to rise above and be the success they are today. Travel the country and you will be hard pressed to find a collective who has better infrastructure for not only carrying the standard for the cannabis movement but providing an unmatched level of care for their patients. As a member of Harborside's collective, patients have access to free services like acupuncture and to programs designed specifically for low income individuals and families. If you're a veteran, there are resources for you too with Harborside Heroes. Founded by famed activist and author Steve DeAngelo, Harborside carries with it the high standards that he and his brother, Andrew, have established and you'll see lines starting outside the building before the showroom even opens for clones from the well-known Dark Heart Nursery. Harborside HC in Oakland is the visionary quest destination for any cannabis enthusiast who truly understands the history and struggles of the national marijuana movement.
