Harborside Health Center is the nation’s largest model cannabis dispensary, with locations in Oakland and San Jose, Calif., and was recently awarded the first and only cannabis dispensary license in San Leandro, California.

Harborside Portland features executive team members from Harborside Health Center, including Executive Director Steve DeAngelo, along with locally hired staff led by General Manager Chris Helton, a former clinician at Oregon Health & Science University, who grew up in Southern Oregon’s Rogue Valley.

Widely considered the nation’s model medical cannabis dispensary, Harborside is pleased to enter Oregon’s adult-use market on its historic debut, with some of the country’s most sensibly written cannabis regulations. Harborside’s proven track record in community stewardship, innovation and social responsibility aligns with the progressive ideals of Portland and will only strengthen its existing cannabis community. Harborside Portland will be proud to offer top-quality products and extremely well-trained staff in a welcoming environment, with nearly a decade of experience in providing service to patients—and now, Oregon’s adult-use consumers.

About Harborside Health Center:

“Harborside Health Center, a nonprofit medical marijuana dispensary with locations in Oakland and San Jose, California, is looked upon as a model of how others could operate.” – The New York Times

Founded in 2006 by Steve DeAngelo, Harborside Health Center is the most respected and largest medical cannabis dispensary in the United States. Harborside has 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. Harborside continues to set an example of diversity and compliance, and is one of the prime advocates of diversity, sustainability and economic justice in the industry.

DeAngelo also co-founded the nation’s first cannabis-testing facility, Steep Hill Labs, and the country’s first cannabis investment and research firm, The ArcView Group. His debut book, “The Cannabis Manifesto: A New Paradigm for Wellness,” was published by North Atlantic Books and distributed by Penguin/Random House on September 22, 2015; in the book’s foreword, Willie L. Brown, Jr., 41st mayor of San Francisco, calls DeAngelo, “the father of the legal cannabis industry.” www.cannabismanifesto.com

DeAngelo was named one of the most influential people and “gatekeeper” of the marijuana industry in 2015 by the International Business Times, and one of the most influential people in the cannabis industry in 2014 by the Cannabis Business Executive.
