Holistic Healing

At Harborside, most patients we assist suffer from conditions that may cause pain sleeplessness and stress. Up until recently, it was thought that people with these conditions should avoid physical activity. However, new studies indicate that low intensity exercises, like yoga, can actually help decrease most pain caused by inflammation. If you are suffering from such symptoms or interested in taking up a low-intensity activity, Yoga or Tai Chi are great places to start. Harborside in Oakland offers FREE classes to all of our patients. At Harborside, we are all about getting well and being well.

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.
