Vendor Guidelines

Harborside Health Center exclusively accepts medicine from legally qualified patients who are cultivating in accordance with California law and have signed our collective cultivation agreement.

We have the highest standards for medical cannabis; please do not be discouraged if you do not sell us your medicine the first time. Many people try several times before succeeding, please keep coming back.

As a purchasing department in an ever-changing market, we choose not to suggest specific strains to grow. By the time you get the genetics, flower, cut, and cure, you may be looking at a very different market.

For vending instructions and important safety information, pick up a copy of the Patient's Guidebook to Providing Medical Cannabis at Harborside Health Center or download the PDF.

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.
