Oakland, CA, April 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Spring is here and 420 is upon us. Help Harborside celebrate during special hours on Friday April 20th from 9 AM to 8 PM. Join us at our Oakland and San Jose locations to celebrate the day with product demonstrations, food and coffee vendors, a very special art exhibit, and the launch of our new Spring Collection of Flowers. Steve DeAngelo  and Andrew DeAngelo will stop by both locations. Look for live music and a book signing!

Spring Collection of Flowers 

In partnership with a team of experts, Harborside is thrilled to introduce our new Spring Collection of Flowers. After months of travel and painstaking review, we’ve assembled a curated collection of 20 strains from separate harvests around the state that have yielded exceptional flowers. The results are top shelf and high-grade flowers that are beyond comparison. To check out the promotions good through April 21st, visit https://www.shopharborside.com/index.html

To help you find your perfect flower, we are pleased to introduce the Harborside Index (HI).  Crafted after the Robert Parker wine rating system, the HI is a 0-100 point quality rating that evaluates single harvest flowers on a combination of key criteria including: potency, scent, flavor profile, color, and flower structure.  The information gathered will help customers, old and new, educate themselves on the nuances of each strain like never before. Rigorous testing and painstaking curation has gone into this new system.  A full explanation of the index can be found here:  https://www.shopharborside.com/harborside_index.html.

Special Art Exhibit for 420 Celebration of Limited Edition Posters

Harborside will host an art show by artist Jason McHugh of Califari Art. Best known as an actor and producer for creative work with Trey Parker and Matt Stone (Southpark, Cannibal The Musical, Orgazmo), Jason will be on site with the exhibition. "I am really excited about the Jack poster and others - and thrilled to have it be the first officially licensed product of the Jack Herer Estate", said Jason. Jack “The Hemperor” Herer is known as one of the most influential figures in the modern legalization movement; the award-winning strain in his honor - now commemorated in poster art - will be available for sale at the exhibit.
