Oakland, CA, Dec. 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oakland, Calif.—Harborside is proud to be selected “Best Dispensary” by the San Francisco Chronicle’s 2018 GreenState Cannabis Awards! The first-ever awards honor exceptional performance throughout the cannabis industry.

“There are some moments you know you will remember the rest of your life, and day one of legal cannabis will be one of those moments for me,” said Harborside/FLRish CEO Steve DeAngelo. “Thousands of activists—including everyone who has ever worked at Harborside or supported our efforts—have worked for decades, with tremendous courage and determination, to end Prohibition and its many injustices. My heart overflows with gratitude to every single one of them that I am alive to see this good day. We fought for it, we won it, and now we will claim the full fruits of our victory.”

About Harborside/FLRish:

Operating since 2006, Harborside (formerly, Harborside Health Center) is a world-renowned cannabis dispensary and wellness center based in Oakland, Calif., with another dispensary in San Jose, and a cultivation facility in Salinas. Co-founded by longtime activist and entrepreneur, Steve DeAngelo, Harborside is now overseen by FLRish Retail Management & Security Services LLC.

Over the past decade, DeAngelo and his team have introduced many industry standards. Harborside was first in the nation to offer lab-tested, CBD-rich medicine; first in the country to support education for seniors, veterans and families with severely ill children; and the first to treat children with Dravet syndrome. Harborside is one of the prime advocates of diversity, compliance, sustainability and social justice in the industry. As California moves to enact Proposition 64, Harborside is devoted to ensuring that their core values are integrated into adult-use legalization, and to remain true to their mission: “To help build a world that lives by the values cannabis teaches us.”
