Harborside opens its newest cannabis dispensary in Desert Hot Springs in Coachella Valley. The store is Harborside’s first retail location outside of the Bay Area and will also be the first drive-thru dispensary in Southern California.

The 4,800 square foot facility is strategically located on Interstate 10 between Los Angeles and Coachella and will carry both medical and adult-use products, including Harborside’s KEY line of cannabis products. In addition to its highly anticipated drive-thru, the Desert Hot Springs location will partner with Pure Healing Clinic, offering professional acupuncture, herbal medicine, and other wellness services. This latest expansion marks Harborside’s fourth retail operation in California.

“Harborside is committed to bringing exceptional cannabis products to our neighboring communities, and is proud to provide the Southern California market with best-in-class service and convenience,” said Peter Bilodeau, interim CEO of Harborside. “We are especially pleased to have obtained one of the few drive-thru dispensary licenses in Southern California.”

“Harborside decided to come to the Coachella Valley because we like to be where the action is,” said co-founder and Chairman Emeritus Steve DeAngelo. “The Valley is growing into a world-class center of both the cannabis industry and cannabis tourism, so it’s an ideal location to introduce the legendary Harborside retail model and in-house brands to a wider population. We’re also bringing some things that the Valley hasn’t seen yet, like our drive-thru, an on-site holistic healing clinic, and the legendary knowledge and compassion of our associates.”

Harborside Inc. is a California-focused, vertically-integrated cannabis enterprise. The company has played an instrumental role in making cannabis safe and accessible to a broad and diverse community of California consumers.
