We are a nonprofit collective dedicated to providing lab-tested, affordable, high quality cannabis and subsidized health services to our members. We aim to educate our patients about cannabis treatments and other alternative health approaches to supplement their medicine. SPARC advocates for government change. We seek to be a voice for the implementation of best practices for the regulation and taxation of medical cannabis.
Established in 2001.
SPARC began as a collaboration between several small collectives serving distinct patient populations in San Francisco. SPARC’s work was focused primarily on serving low-income patients suffering from chronic and terminal illnesses. As our member-base continued to expand through the integration of small patient collectives, we sought a permit from the City of San Francisco to open a central healing center and dispensary. This important step allows us to increase our capacity to serve a wider array of members. Our organization is rooted in the same compassionate, patient-centered service that we have maintained for almost a decade. We work to bring a community-friendly and scientific approach to providing medical cannabis to our members. As a not for profit organization, our proceeds are reinvested directly into patient services and community activism. As we grow, our advocacy and patient services grow, too.
