THC stand for Tetrahydrocannabinoid and it is the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis that causes feelings of euphoria. People who seek to induce euphoric sensations seek the products with the most THC (THC+); people seeking to minimize the psychoactivity of the plant, seek lowest levels of THC (THC-)

THCA is a precursor to THC and it is listed as a reference. Many dispensaries list only one of these values (THCA) to inflate the perception that their medicine has more THC than accurate. We list both values to avoid confusion.

CBD is a different Cannabinoid than THC and has no psychoactive properties. In fact, medicine containing high levels of CBD will prevent the euphoric sensations caused by THC and it is prefered by patients who wish to avoid those sensations. Many states only allow the use of CBD cannabis. It is also the prefered medicine for children and animals to avoid the confusion that may be caused by psychoactivity.

Unfortunately Adult-Use regulations prohibit us from offering any free product.

Adult Use Regulations - Starting January 1st 2018

California adult-use sales started on January 1, 2018.

No. Harborside’s hours are still the same -- 10AM-8PM every day.

Yes. There will be no change in our Web order pickup and delivery services. As of mid-December, 2016, Express Delivery has been discontinued.

No. You only need a government-issued identification card showing that you are 21 years old or over.


In 2018, state laws will limit the quantity of cannabis a person can buy per day. Because of this, Harborside is required to scan your ID card. Unless you have explicitly signed up for the Harborside Rewards program, your personal information will NOT be stored ANYWHERE. Harborside takes privacy very seriously.

Yes. With the legalization of adult-use cannabis, the city and the state will increase taxes on cannabis sales at all California dispensaries and delivery services. The specific tax increases depends on your city. For Harborside locations, Oakland taxes will increase from 14.25% to 36.20%, and San Jose taxes will increase from 19.25% to 36.20%. These tax increases started January 1, 2018.

If you would like to learn more about California Adult-Use Cannabis taxes, please visit California Department of Tax and Fee Administration website

State law limits adults to purchase one ounce (28.5 grams) of non-concentrated cannabis (flower), eight (8) grams of concentrated cannabis, and six (6) clones (immature plants) per day.

Yes. For adult-use sales, no single edible package can contain more than 100mg of THC. Edible products must also contain no more than 10mg THC per serving.

Yes, Harborside will continue to sell clones (immature plants). An adult aged 21 or over may purchase six (6) clones per day.

Harborside prides itself on the quality and size of its menu of products. We will continue to offer you the best quality cannabis products at the best price. However, licensing and regulatory issues may limit selection in some cases, especially in early 2018.

No. Most public spaces prohibit smoking or vaping cannabis products. This includes Harborside’s parking lot.

Not right away, although we will probably see child-resistant packaging guidelines for individual products roll out throughout 2018. Current regulations require dispensaries to provide child-resistant, resealable “exit bags” for customers. At home, it is important to keep your cannabis in a safe spot away from children and pets.

Harborside will continue to serve medical patients, however, we will not be able to sell quantities in excess of one ounce of non-concentrated cannabis (flower) or eight grams of concentrated cannabis. Harborside is unable to sell to any medical patient under the age of 21. Harborside will issue a 9.25% discount for medical patients with a county-issued medical ID card. Click here for more information about county-issued medical cannabis ID cards.

You can carry one ounce of non-concentrated cannabis (flower) and eight grams of concentrated cannabis.

You can gift one ounce of non-concentrated cannabis (flower) and eight grams of concentrated cannabis at one time.

No. Driving under the influence of cannabis is illegal and dangerous.
