    $$$, but good

    Great bud. The price doesnt lie. Staff is friendly, the security wasn't that nice but they were helpful.

    Not the place for dabbers.

    Came in on 420 for the deals called ahead said it wasn't busy sounded busy but my friend had never been so i was stuck. when we got there it was packed took about an hour n a half with the new patient with me. tried to use the express line but you can't smell the hash or clear and they only had one shatter that was said to be stable but could see was buddering(i actually got to see that one) it looked stable but was in a fat bead instead of being flat on the parchment. The clear i got was great, the little viles you give them in are cruel and unusual for a lot of patients! everything else here is usually awesome all the time.

    Safe and clean access

    For as many patients as these guys have I believe they are the prime example for California dispensaries. Yes there are sometimes going to be lines but that's what happens when you have the selection they do. (but I've seen multiple times staff escort elderly and handicap to the front)
    Security is always in front one or two guys followed by a door opener and metal detector which I appreciate as I have been to many dispensaries where people are smoking in the parking lot and security is so high they can't open their eyes too even look at your ID!
    My biggest appreciation is the amount of tested flowers and sungrown selection. Nothing compares! I can even ask strain genetics and staff is always friendly to find out from one another.
    Wish the prices included tax and the membership points did more but all and all my favorite spot in CA!

    Bad Attitude

    It looks nice and clean and most of the cashiers are nice and the meds are good. My experience is the front office people and their condescending, we are here to do you a favor, attitude is hard to put up with when you're in severe pain. Parking lot security is fun too, you're a suspect no matter what and they eye you like you're up to no good going in and out of the store. I keep thinking a wheelchair is in my near future and having to deal with these guys to get in the store will be intolerable.

    I've shopped here for over a year and I'm tired of making excuses to myself for their behavior. This place is convenient for me, but: The web site is not well maintained; they don NOT answer emails and; there is no place to sit in the line, so if you have a spinal injury and can't stand for long, go some where else or go home and suffer for the next 2 weeks as I do every time. Deliveries? If you can make it past their signup page I guess it works. I tried but it reset my information over and over again. Calling them for help will work if you don't say anything more than to respond to their questions. I made the mistake of complaining about the clunky website. I got an ear full for that.

    Your dollar is your vote. I'm voting with my dollars for any thing else but harborside. Even dealers are better deal with than the front staff of this place.

    Rude and Incompetent Staff

    The main reason I will never come back to this place is because of the rude incompetent staff. Let me tell you about my last experience at Harborside...

    I showed up and there was one convenient parking spot left, I drive an SUV and it was just easier to back into the spot. I reversed into the spot and was promptly approached by staff in front of the door telling me I am not allowed to park in reverse. They consider it the "get-away" position and I guess were profiling me thinking I might be there to rob them. Thanks for discriminating!

    Next, once I change how I am parked. I hand them my ID and I even had a Harborside receipt/card from my last visit. I did not bring my recommendation because I had already been there and should have been already in the system. I thought it was funny that my receipt showed I just bought something there last week. However, because I was not in the system and no recommendation they could not serve me. It is not my fault your staff is overly stoned and failed when it came to creating me in the system.

    Magnolia Wellness I have been going to instead. Better customer service so far, good selection of flowers, good daily specials...I would go to Magnolia Wellness if choosing to go to a dispensary in Oakland.

    Lost my love

    1 person thought this review was helpful!

    I was in love at first site with HHC I was treated super well at first and always had great bud tenders!!! I feel like after weed wars the show they went down hill like they got there name out and now no longer have to respect people! Medicating at work for a budtender is unprofessional and sadly expected here. I have never coped a attitude towards a tender anywhere!!! But the other day I left my meds and told they guy to f#*k off! Went to sparc in sf got great service instead spent less got more

    CANNA BUTTER

    DEAR HHC. I HAVE BEEN BUYING BUTTER BROS. CANNA BUTTER SOMETIMES AS MUCH 5-6 JARS A WEEK FOR THE LAST YEAR OR SO. I HAVE TRIED MANY,MANY EDIBLES AND BUTTER BROS. ARE THE ABSOLUTLY BEST AND MOST POTENT EVER! PROBLEM IS, 2 COOKIES COST $7.00. A tsp. OF THIER BUTTER COST ABOUT $1.76.00, WHICH IS EQUEL TO ONE COOKIE. IT IS THE BEST EDIBLE BANG FOR YOUR BUCK. SECOND PROBLEM IS EVIDENTALY I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE TO FIGURE THIS OUT BECAUSE ONLY HHC AND BPG CARRY IT AND BOTH HAVE BEEN OUT FOR WEEKS! MAJOR BUMMER! AM I RIGHT OR IS BUTTER BROS. DISCONTINUING THE PRODUCT OR WHAT'S THE STORY? A DISAPPOINTED PATIENT

    Really bad customer service

    1 person thought this review was helpful!

    Came in a first time customer, didn't feel particularly welcome. Got a loooonnngg orientation that seems designed to make sure customers behave themselves, as opposed to making sure you know of all their services. Waited on by visibly overmedicated clerk who copped a major attitude at me despite my friendly demeanor. I think she was annoyed that I was asking questions about their (overpriced) vaporizers, and not just picking up a web order -- the same counter handles vape sales and pickups. I felt a lot of reverse racism behind this encounter - and zero product knowledge. I left and went back to BCGC, where I am treated with a lot more genuine warmth and hospitality by articulate and knowledgeable bud tenders. I am so disappointed because I expected this to be a monument to integrity and holistic health principles, but the place just made me feel like I'd been to a sketchy neighborhood where I was not particularly welcome. Big, big letdown after reading their history and their website.

    ....Ehhh.

    1 person thought this review was helpful!

    I know this is one of the most well-known dispensaries in the Bay Area (and probably even California) but I can't say I LOVE this place. I have been going here for a long time and the club itself is minutes from my home. But let's just say I would rather spend an extra 10 minutes driving into downtown and buying from a dispensary there than buying medicine at Harborside. Pretty much everything there is expensive and even with as many windows as they have, I sometimes have to wait for ages until I'm helped, even in the express line! The bud itself is good quality, but I find that a lot of the strains seem harsher when smoked compared to other dispensaries. I don't know if this is the pesticides they use or maybe I'm just trippin' but thats what I think about when I start hacking my lungs to pieces after taking a hit of the blunt. ANYWAY, this is a cool place. They have everything you would ever need there and the staff is very knowledgeable about their medicine. They offer free classes for patients and have other awesome community services so it's not all bad. I'll leave with this saying: Well-known club = High prices for shit you can get elsewhere for much less.
