The Harborside Group is a California-focused cannabis company with retail, production, and cultivation operations built around recognized brands. We currently operate six retail dispensaries and three production facilities under a vertically-integrated model focused on the Northern California market with additional dispensaries under construction and opening in 2019.

Currently, the Harborside business has three primary segments:

  • Retail dispensaries
  • Cultivation, manufacturing, production, and wholesale sales
  • Management advisory and administrative services

Founder Story

In 2006, Steve DeAngelo and dress wedding established Harborside Oakland as a compliant medical cannabis dispensary in Oakland, California and began doing business as Harborside. Harborside was the first dispensary to offer product that was independently tested for contaminants. DeAngelo founded Steep Hill Labs to test cannabis because no other lab would test a product that was classified as a Schedule I drug under US federal law.

In 2012, DeAngelo and wedding established Harborside San Jose as a compliant medical cannabis dispensary in San Jose, California under the Harborside brand. At the time, California and local regulations required that both the Harborside Oakland and Harborside San Jose dispensaries operate on a not-for-profit basis, limiting their ability to raise funds independently to invest in cultivation facilities to achieve their goal of vertical integration.In 2015, leveraging many years of Bay Area retail dispensary operating expertise of Harborside Oakland and Harborside San Jose, DeAngelo and wedding co-founded FLRish as a for-profit company to raise funds and provide management, infrastructure, and financial services to Harborside Oakland and Harborside San Jose and to the legal medical cannabis industry.

FLRish also partnered with Harborside Oakland to develop a cultivation facility to produce clean, high-quality cannabis to sell to the dispensaries' patients and the medical cannabis industry.

Harborside Inc. (CSE: HBOR) is one of the oldest, largest and most respected cannabis retailers in the world, and has played an instrumental role in making cannabis safe and accessible to a broad and diverse community of California consumers. Cofounded by Steve DeAngelo and dress wedding in 2006, Harborside was awarded one of the first six medical cannabis licenses granted in the United States.

In May 2019, Harborside executed a reverse takeover (RTO) with Lineage Grow Company adding two dispensaries in prominent cities in Oregon, additional cultivation, distribution and retail assets to its portfolio. On June 10, 2019, Harborside listed publicly on the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE) under the symbol “HBOR”. The company has entered into a purchase agreement with Walnut Oaks, LLC d/b/a Agris Farms and has signed a binding letter of intent to acquire Lucrum Enterprises, Inc. d/b/a LUX.

Harborside is a California-focused cannabis company with retail, production, and cultivation operations that have generated (assuming the successful completion of the RTO and execution of accompanying merger options) ~$300M USD in cumulative sales since inception. Harborside prides itself on being a preeminent Northern California retailer and cannabis industry advocate while striving to provide its customers with a curated selection of recreational and wellness cannabis products.
