It is hard to go wrong with HarborSide, especially if you are looking for quality weed. Sure, they’ve got their pluses and minuses, but then again which dispensary doesn’t? After checking out quite a few different dispensaries in San Jose, we finally arrived at the legendary Harborside.
It is quite a site from the outside, and as you walk into the place, you’ll get an immediate impression that these guys know what they’re doing. And.. who can blame them! When you’re backed by the man himself; Steve DeAngelo, what could possibly be wrong.
Founded in 2006 by Steve DeAngelo, Harborside is one of the most respected and largest medical cannabis dispensaries in the United States. It serves over 200,000 registered patients and was first in the nation to support education for seniors, veterans and families with severely ill children; first in the country to offer CBD-rich medicine; and the first to treat children with Dravet syndrome.
The place is a powerhouse when it comes to variety and products. They have classes where you can pick up a thing or two. There edibles selection is close to amazing, offering sweet and savory, chocolate, vegan , nuts, gummies and more… At Harborside, you’ll also hardly ever find things out of stock. They keep a top notch shop, stocked with great medicine and products.
Ok… so is it all rosy? Unfortunately not. The problem with Harborside is that it is so popular that you can be waiting around for your Meds for over 20 minutes. You can try to come during off-hours, but we are not sure there is such a thing :). So what’s the solution? Order Online
At HarborSide they’ve made it super convenient to order online. Whether you’re in Oakland or San Jose you can choose from a massive variety of products, all of which can be delivered to your doorstep.
