SPARC is a nonprofit collective dedicated to providing lab-tested, affordable, high quality cannabis and subsidized health services to the members. It began as a collaboration between several small collectives serving distinct patient populations in San Francisco, California.
SPARC advocates for government change. They seek to be a voice for the implementation of best practices for the regulation and taxation of medical cannabis.
SPARC cultivates the vast majority of its own medicine with the expert member-cultivators on staff and is one of the few dispensaries in California to have its medicine tested to ensure safety and quality.
SPARC’s aims to educate their patients about cannabis treatments and other alternative health approaches to supplement their medicine. SPARC’s approach to healing involves providing members with a wide array of healing tools to confront their unique health challenges and improve their daily lives. The services include meditation, acupressure, Ayurveda and SPARC support groups. It gives the access to centuries-old healing traditions, including traditions where cannabis has been used to foster self-healing through meditation.
