"I have to thank Harborside Oakland, the delivery service, and Jesse for being the best thing since sliced bread. I have riden buses all over Denver and northern California with the worst medical condition, level 10 trigeminal neuralgia. You have just made my life almost normal again. Five gold star nuggets for the new HARBORSIDE DELIVERY!
thank you kindly, humble patient"

"For all of those who love HHC but have a hard time getting there . . . Delivery is the way to go! I can't tell you how hassle free and easy it is. Why stand in line when you can . . . do what you like. With a 60 minute ETA- you can't beat it! I'm not saying it will always be 60 min or less. But, today, it was. :D"

"I am a cancer patient undergoing chemotherapy. I found Harborside, and they really cater to actual sick people... The best thing is that the place is clean, large, open, efficient and well-run, with extra services, as the California law requires. This is how compassionate care clinics ought to be... My script is from my oncologist, the real deal, because my cancer is real. Thanks, Harborside, for being real, too.

"All in all I can honestly say that on more than one occasion, I thought to myself, 'Okay, how can I afford to move up here from OC in order to be close enough to shop here daily?' That's how good a business they are running. And in case you are wondering, we never even went to the other 2 dispensaries on my list. It just was not necessary. Grade: A+"

"I was able to visit the ultra-clean, brand new facility at Harborside Health Center, 1840 Embarcadero in Oakland, and I was highly impressed. Upon entrance I was greeted with a handshake and after being properly checked by security, I was instructed into their orientation room. It was a painless verification process and although I had OCBC, my compadre had Medicann, and his SF card and was able to get verification painless as well. The staff was courteous and they seemed like they were eager to get to helping me."

"Hands down, best in the west. Cleanest around, down to the b-rooms. Excellent variety, high-grade products. They let my caretaker come and buy for me, which is a big relief. Plus, they have a volunteer center where if you work for an hour a week, you get a free gram of medicine of your choice. Go here or you are a fool. Love the staff, down to security. Do yourself a favor a treat yourself to the best, and Harborside is it!"

"I can't begin to tell you how refreshing it was to become a new member of a clean, safe, professional and welcoming establishment. The intake and bud-bar staff was awesome, as were the orientation presenters. It was so wonderful to be treated in a professional manner and deal with well-informed, intelligent and well-trained staff members... Having helped start and manage the first Cannabis Buyers Club (CBC) in San Francisco... with Denis Peron in 1994... I was also able to lead drug addiction and support groups for the homeless and seriously physically/mentally ill. Over the past decade-and-a-half I have witnessed the entire spectrum of 'cannabis buyers clubs, pharmacies, centers, dispensaries' and I must say, Harborside Health Center is one of the very best I have frequented in a long time... I now feel like I can confidently refer my patients to a professional and safe dispensary and health services center."

"Harborside is the only club I have been to that tests the finished product for THC percentages. The staff is friendly, they don't allow customers to handle clones (which IMO is important), and the selection of clones is great. The clones I have picked up from here have been in really good shape, probably some of the most healthy clones I have purchased so far. I would highly recommend this place!"

"I decided Harborside is too rad to give it a one-word review. I'll tell you this much – I have an acupuncture appt. there this Friday (free), a chiropractor appt. next week (free), I've taken yoga from Jim (free–and he is by far the coolest guy at the place!) and I've got an herbal consultation coming up in May (free). Seriously? The intentions and legitimate concern for their patients is undeniable."

"Thanks a lot, Harborside, the visit was a great experience. The dispensary is a very chill place, very calm and relaxing. The entire staff was very helpful, even the security guards were cool, and the med selection was great. You guys had a great variety of different buds ranging in great prices. I picked up the eighth of Urkle budlets and a gram of Purple Kush, and let me tell you, both of them were A+. It tasted great and fresh. I will be back! Take care."

"Harborside has the best clone selection in Oakland, hands down, and top-shelf meds. I am always treated with respect there as well, so no major complaints."

"First of all, let me say HARBORSIDE HEALTH CENTER IS THE PLACE. The treatment you get is 2nd to none. They are all for the community. This is a real 'Help Health Center'. From the time you pull into their parking lot until you walk out the door, you are greeted with care and compassion. If you are not sure what dispensary to go to, then do not go anywhere but HARBORSIDE HEALTH, great selection, clean, nice music, like I said before, this is the place."

"Hi, I've lurked the boards a long time, and I just registered to post how well done this whole place is. This place really is how a co-op should be – classy, not ashamed of what they are doing, very friendly, and a great selection of meds all around. I picked up both the intensive care Trainwreck and Grandaddy, and both are top top quality, well worth the extra price. Some places you go to you get that sort of feeling like you should be ashamed you're picking up pot, and it's not a bad thing, and some circumstances might require it. But you certainly don't feel that way going to Harborside. This place has literally became my favorite overnight, simply for how it is operated."

We Choose to Not Use the Term "Medical Marijuana"

While you may have heard medical cannabis referred to as medical marijuana, at Harborside we do not use that term. William Randolph Hearst utilized the word marijuana, as did his political allies, to promote harmful stereotypes about both the Mexican and Black populations. Smokers of marijuana were frequently caricatured as crazed and violent black men or lazy, thieving Mexicans.

We use the term medical cannabis rather than medical marijuana because we choose not to associate the positive healing properties of cannabis with the negative, racist undertones of the word marijuana. To use that term would passively support the wrong and hurtful notions of Hearst and his allies, whereas we believe that cannabis is medicine, and is meant for people of all colors and walks of life.
