SPARC is a nonprofit collective dedicated to providing lab-tested, affordable, high quality cannabis and subsidized health services to our members.
We aim to educate our patients about cannabis treatments and other alternative health approaches to supplement their medicine.
SPARC advocates for government change. We seek to be a voice for the implementation of best practices for the regulation and taxation of medical cannabis. Download a press kit here.
To become a SPARC member, all you need to do is two things:
Come into the dispensary at 1256 Mission Street with your doctor’s recommendation and a government issued ID or drivers license. (Note: You do not need a medical marijuana patient ID card to become a member – just bring in the original copy of your doctor’s recommendation.)
Fill out a registration form.
After we verify your recommendation and receive your registration form, we will give you an official SPARC membership card. And that’s it – you are officially a SPARC member!
We ask that new patients please arrive a half hour before closing to allow for extra registration time.
Designated Caregivers are welcome at SPARC. If your doctor did not provide you with a verifiable document which designates caregiver/patient status, SPARC will allow a patient to designate one caregiver. A SPARC Caregiver Designation form, available for download here must be signed by BOTH patient and caregiver. Caregivers and the patients they represent must both complete the standard SPARC registration form.
Caregivers arriving to SPARC to sign up both themselves and a patient who cannot be present must bring:
Two Completed and signed registration forms found here (One for the patient, one for the caregiver)
One completed and signed Caregiver designation form (Either your physician’s form or the SPARC form found here)
Physical Valid State or government issued ID’s for both the Caregiver and Patient
Patient’s Verifiable Medical Cannabis Recommendation.

SPARC Patient Services
There is a Lakota Saying that “Everything is Medicine,” meaning that in the right hands, everything is useful. SPARC’s approach to healing involves providing members with a wide array of healing tools to confront their unique health challenges and improve their daily lives.
While members of our collective come to us first for medicine, over time we want them to utilize other healing techniques that can help them address their problems.SPARC offers access to centuries-old healing traditions, including traditions where cannabis has been used to foster self-healing through meditation.While cannabis has been popularized in North American pop culture as a hazy, sleep-inducing substance, many South Asian cultures traditionally use cannabis for selective meditations as a means to awakening.
In India, there is over 3,000 years of history behind cannabis as a tool for healing in Ayurvedic medicine, as well as an aide in spiritual practice. To learn more about ancient traditions that used cannabis, visit the Spiritual Use of Cannabis section of our website under Cannabis Research.

Went in last night for my b day gift and was met by a manager namedBrett who told me in a condescending tone "stop coming here. Have a nice day". This isn't the first time I had an Unpleasent interaction with one of their staff. I've heard stories from friends too who have had similar issues. One made them by an ounce bag bc it was full of seeds. This place used to be great but the customer sericce went downhill. Let's make them change that! There are too many other dispensaries with the same product and better s
I went here for oh, the 10th time in three years just yesterday. This place used to be great when it first opened eight years ago, but has failed to move with the times. It's not public news yet, but the landlord of the building wants to capitalize on the new height limits that the city of SF recently passed for new developments. That's why SPARC Just got a new location in the lower Haight. They eventually will have to move their entire operation to the lower haight location which does not allow them to sell anything other than flowers and they will not be allowed to have a vapor lounge. This is crucial information for SPARC's patient base to be informed and updated on as they need to prepare for this change. SPARC needs to be more up front with its patients about this issue, I've been coming here forever and they are actively telling the patients a different story, saying that they will stay at Mission Street forever. THIS IS A LIE!!!
Sparc is a dope club to just go to with some friends and vape it up in the lounge. Their Volcano Vapes are of good quality and theyre clean unlike some of the other vape lounges i've been to. The only thing I could say negative about their vape lounge is i was once kicked out for staying more than 30 minutes. It was advertised that it was game night so I thought, hey why not hang out for a while and play some board games? Nope. I didn't even get a chance to play. That doesn't prevent me from coming back though. I still enjoy the good vibes and clean environment that they provide for our medicating times :)
This place is great, and could easily be the best place around, but they cut corners and it shows. All of their concentrates are in plastic containers, even their stickiest, sappiest, rosins. Also, I asked the staff member about some of their bubble, and he answered "I don't know, I'm still new to this." And made no attempt to get help. I also asked "25 a gram?" And the staff member said "yes" so I said I will take 3, paid, didn't do mental math, and ended up walking out with 3 half grams, $15 a half gram! Wtf!!
Will never come back. Things like that piss me off - you're literally selling pot from a storefront, get your stuff together!
I asked for the heaviest indica to put me to sleep i got ancient og because they said it was the best i swear its a sativa or hybrid it was not heavy at all i smoked 3 bowls back to back and nothing it taste and smells sweat like a sativa not skunky and strong like a indica really disappointed also 1st time in san francisco i wish i could return it it was a waste of money
Good Bud. Prices to High for No Reason. Large Selection but Nothing to Choose from I Don't Get iT
+Solid display case
-Staff is unfriendly
-Shit part of SoMa
If your an SF native or a long time resident then you probably don't shop here and if you do then look elsewhere....the bud quality is poor and I've been told full of things unhealthy people don't want to smoke, so I've heard through channels. Being in the industry you hear a lot from disgruntled employees. I can't even bring myself to buy anything other than edibles. The design of the club makes me hate where this city is going...a bunch of out of towners who can't make a decisions for them self without Suri (or their smartphone). Too bright, not a fan of the service. If you really want to "Legalize Gay Pot" please visit Apothecarium in the Castro where they do it right!
