San Francisco Dispensary - SPARC SF

About Us

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:

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.
For questions please email info@sparcsf.org or call 415.252.7727

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.

Best

I believe this is my favorite store in town. They treat you like a good customer instead of doing the dealer thing. . Marijuana is legal now

DO NOT BUY THE NIGHT OWL LOOSE LEAF.

Can't really speak on any of their other products but the night owl looseleaf is straight up GARBAGE. Looks NOTHING like what is pictured on Weedmaps, Meadow, Etc. Absolutely NO buds. Small or otherwise. Literally not a single bud. Straight up stems, Sticks and dead leafs. DO. NOT. BUY.

Great place for hipsters but not patients.

2 people thought this review was helpful

On Saturday, August 19th I enters the Lower Height Sparcs Dispensery to aquire some medication for my PTSD and Anxiety. When I approached the counter I got a very dirty look from the guy behind the counter.
I should of turned around right there but I liked Sparcs for how clean it is and easy to figure where everything is. He asked me in a very not friendly tone as if I was disturbing his peaceful morning.
Again I should of realized I wasn't wanted in there. Maybe because I'm homeless and disabled and he really would prefer sick people wouldn't come in and spoil their hipster scene.
Anyway I wanted to get a cartage that cost $30 but realized I was ten cents short. He told me no, I have to pay the taxes or leave. No offers for a more affordable price or even to spot me a dime. Confrontation sends me into a panic attack so I leave and look up the law on medical marijuana tax, finding its not going to go into effect until January 2018. So I go back and asked "what it says taxes for medical marijuana won't start until 2018? I tried to show the web pages. There's plenty of proof but instead of telling me how that worked he told me I was banned. Of course asking about this tax problem is disrespect I guess and that's the reason I was banned I'm told.
Later when I asked about the ban at the main location the manager and same guard laughed and kidded when me being unable to recognized the guard. One aspect of my attacks is I don't recognize faces of people I only met a couple of times. I guess I shouldn't assume some these clinics actually know much about the medical needs of patients. Anyway if you're not a hipster you're probably not welcome at Sparcs.

Good herb

The herb at this shop is guaranteed sticky. You get a glass gar or some cool packaging with it. The price is a bit high but that comes with good service.

Great Bud, but Inconsistent Staff.

2 people thought this review was helpful

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.

Love and Miss You Sparc

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. :)

Inviting Community

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.

I love everything about this dispensary.

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.
