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.

I am have been a patient of Sparc since moving up to the area in February. I've always had a great experience and the staff has normally been very pleasant. Everyone is knowledgeable and provide excellent service. But, today was different. While enjoying the Vape Lounge where they provide Volcano Digits for you to use, a young man that I assume was a manager considering he was dressed more professionally than the standard uniforms most of the staff wears of black, this was a black and white designed button shirt resembling paint strokes or waves. After being extremely friendly to a gentleman with his Chihuahua, he came by our table to clean and collect trash from the cups etc. Without saying hello, he did not offer any assistance or acknowledge my friend and I even though we said hello and skipped us. Once I asked if they had WiFi I received a disinterested/rude reply stating that they did not have WiFi. It was uncomfortable and upsetting considering everyone is normally very friendly.
Literally my favorite place on Earth. I use to live next door and Space was like my second home. They are knowledgeable and taught me so much about the difference in medication and consumption methods. I wanted to thank you Space for testing your amazing meds and always being patient and friendly every single time. I will be visiting soon to say hello, buy Top Quality Meds and maybe get a free massage or some acupuncture depending on the day. I always recommend people visiting SF to check out Sparc. If you haven't been yet, I suggest you go as well. God Bless and Take Care until the next time. :)
The best of the best of your willing to pay for it. The staff is friendly and not intimidating, there is even free water and hot tea in the lounge which is not a sectioned off hard to infiltrate center for exclusion, but an open and inviting community of your peers.
First off, the atmosphere is beautiful. The gorgeous cannabis is in glass containers inside a glass countertop, so you can actually see the quality of their medicine. They also have a lovely selection of concentrates and edibles. They also have a very nice lounge where you can use their volcano vaporizers. Every time I come in here, I feel at home and relaxed. Thank you Sparc for what you do. You'll always be one of my favorite dispensaries.
Awesome place. Top notch buds. Knowledge tenders and cool lounge. Definitely a must to see this place if not just once.
they hold it down here 4 bein in the midst of the entire city. great vape lounge & friendly, knowledgable staff w/great cannabis product selection
I use to live next door and I literally was in your shop like every other day. Great lounge to vape with the volcano and honestly I love game nights and the free massages. Highest quality medication I have ever had and I have learned all I know about MMJ from the staff here. All time favorite dispensary in SF and I wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving Sparc, and I will see you soon! God Bless💚
I always find time to stop in to Sparc while in The Bay Area.
Not only did I pick up 3 chronic strains (Lauren Winslow, island Sweet Skunk & Rserve Honey Banana) but had a great chill there which is a big part of the whole Sparc experience.
