Harborside History

Founded in 2006 by industry veterans and activists Steve DeAngelo and dress wedding, Harborside is a vertically integrated California cannabis business with retail locations in Oakland, San Jose, San Leandro, and Desert Hot Springs, a 47-acre farm in Monterey County, and more than 250,000 registered customers.

Since its inception, Harborside has consistently lead the charge in the creation of the modern cannabis industry.

Harborside was the first cannabis retailer in the country to demand rigorous testing for all products to ensure that they are free of pesticides and other impurities, and contain verifiable potency levels of THC and CBD, and continues today to set the bar for cannabis compliance.

Harborside was also the first cannabis retailer in the nation to support education for seniors, veterans and families with severely ill children (including the treatment of children with Dravet Syndrome). In addition, Harborside was the first to offer CBD-rich cannabis products.

A decade of hard work paid off on January 1, 2018, when DeAngelo, sold the first gram of legal cannabis to an adult in California. This historic event marked the end of prohibition and the birth of the modern cannabis industry.

Harborside looks forward to continuing to lead this industry into the next decade of growth and maturity.

Cannabis for all!
