How to Become a Medical Cannabis Patient

What do I become a Harborside Patient?

In order to purchase medicine from Harborside, you need to sign a membership agreement. The membership is free and all you need to bring are:

1. Valid government issued ID
2. Either a Doctor’s Recommendation for Medical Cannabis*
– or –
Medical cannabis Patient ID card

You can bring these documents to one of our locations and complete the membership agreement. Or you can register online here.

*Recommendations letter will need to be verified in order to make a purchase. Please make sure to visit us during your doctor’s regular business hours.

How do I get a California Medical Cannabis Patient ID?

The California Medical Cannabis Patient ID Center issues a medical ID card for $35. The advantage of the card, other than being laminated, is that it is recognized in most dispensaries in the Bay Area as a way to gain access without further verification. The CMCP is located at 1733 Broadway in Oakland.

The Department of Health services in many California cities also offers a Medical ID card program. Ask your local DHS for how to obtain

Do you require the State ID card or CMCP ID?

No. There are some licensed dispensaries that require a medical ID card. In accordance with State Bill 420 regulations, we will honor your doctor’s recommendation provided we can reach your doctor’s office to verify it.

Do I need to sign anything?

Harborside is a collective of patients. In order to visit our dispensary facilities, you must register as a member of our collective, which involves signing an agreement stating your intention to relate with Harborside as such.

Are there any membership fees?

No. There are no membership fees whatsoever.

Can I get pre-verified?

If you are bringing your Doctors Recommendation, we can save time by verifying it ahead of time. There are several options to get pre-verified.

Email us a picture of your documentation.

Live Chat Us

****We will do our best to get you pre-verified in a timely manner. At all times, please make sure to have your current recommendation letter and government issued ID****

Can I use a State ID card?

Yes. We also recognize the State ID card, which is also issued by the CMCP (see question above). The State ID is sponsored by the state of California, costs twice as much as the CMCP ID, and takes longer to obtain. Please note that the California Attorney General has also disclosed a willingness to share patient information collected by the State ID card program with the federal government. The CMCP card, by contrast, is cheaper and your information will not be shared by anyone without a subpoena or your express permission. Both cards are issued at the same place – the CMCP.
