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.
This is the OG of all the clubs
Okay first off let me start off by saying that this place was the most respected club in the whole bay area. Now with that being said, This place is WAY over priced and I'm talking about Both San Jose and Oakland Harborside. They always have great quality stuff But other then that getting ready to be raped with no lube and I mean Hard to. There pre-roles kinda suck. There planets suck major DICK. Alright here goes the Cons.. some of the staff members are kinda egotistical. PROS.. the product is well grown and overpriced so get ready to be ripped off..
High prices and long waits

I love the fact what Harborside has done for the medical marijuana community but the wait is usually very long even if you use the express line. I got a $40 mega mix since most other prices for flower isnt posted on a menu. Bud quality was decent but I smoked some of the buds and I didnt get high. Other buds in the bag had better quality but not worth $40.
I got some cherry ak and SFV kush from here and it was pretty good, tastes how it should and the appearance matches. The only thing though is the price for the top shelf is crazy high and comes with a tax on top of it.
I like this place. Nice standards!.
Friendly, nice selection of bud , a selection of clones, you can buy papers. A express line , a display case of samples of the buds while you wait to get to the front counter or even go to the express line after checking the display case. And they have rewards cards how cool!. Also they gave me industry discount because i work at a other club with proof of paystub of course.
Beautiful facility, super friendly staff, and free holistic care...what more could you ask for!?!

I was in Oakland on business and decided to give them a try. While walking to the door a man with a hood pulled over his head standing near the door approached me in a strange manner and asked if I was looking for Harborside, being that I knew where I was and where I was going this was a bit shady to me. Being from Detroit
(former residence), we had peddlers sitting outside of dispensaries trying to undercut the competition and sometimes on occasion attempt to mug customers. So this was a natural defense mechanism that I responded with a soft "no" and kept walking. I had to finish a phone call so I sat on the bench outside of Harborside for a couple of minutes. Upon entry to the building this same man and another(turned out to be security) asked me for my i.d., which I gave to them immediately, began interrogating me and seemingly making fun of me. They were feeding off eachother... "How many Cannabis Clubs have you been to?" "You should know how this works?" etc. yada yada on and on. "Excuse me!" I said. I was calm and collected at first, but they didn't stop and I told them I could take my business elsewhere. They backed off for maybe... a few seconds and both jumped in again belittling me. I asked for my I.D. back and left, took my business elsewhere. Very sad that they lost a customer before I even got in the door. I was blown away at the lack of professionalism and compassion. What if this was my first dispensary experience to your ALMIGHTY CANNABIS CLUB?! Ridiculous.
Can't believe this terrible experience

I bought 2 "grams" of cannabis concentrate tonight Friday January 24. Seeing the examples i was very impressed with one of the oils. I decided to purchase it. When i get home. I look at it. The one they gave me is not the example i pointed out. It is nearly empty! I hoped it was just because I wasxa large container but hours later i am so disappointed and feel so taken advantage of. They played me. I wish i could add a picture. If you want to see it send me a private message. With a triple beam scale it came out to a huuuuge difference in weights when I target an empty container of the same size. I ask you Harborside, do you really take advantage of people like this?
Harborside Health Center Highest Quaility
I'm glad there's other patients who also feel the price has reflected the quality of the medication. I was given the chance to medicate some of the most rare and exotic strains I've ever seen. There's a large variety of sativa, indica, hybrids, and cbd strains at Harborside so you will be sure to find something that works best for you.
The very knowledgeable and friendly staff are always there to help you out in the process. I usually medicate with the Red Congolese and other sativa variety strains Harborside has to offer. Even some of the choices under the top shelf have been close to the quality of the top shelf they have.
Be sure to try out the delivery service if you can't make it out there.
Harborside did surveys and rewarded patients for there useful input on helping make Harborside a better place. They really do listen and I've seen the great improvements such as any donations towards merchandise as well will count for rewards points on your rewards card.
everyone complains about hhc prices but that's usally the only real negative I hear. it is all relative my weedmapper buddies! I have tried bud from all over and theirs is some of the best. allways a great selection and the have the real exotic strains like the shire, or African gold ect. their stuff is all tested too and that means a lot to me to know I am smoking only cannabis and not pesticides or molds or bugs ect. they are the model of what a dispensery should be! keep up the good work hhc much love . a satisfied patient.
