The Green Cross (TGC) cannabis collective opened its doors in 2004 as a storefront location in Noe Valley. Instantly it was known for its professional, member-centric operation style. The mantra that TGC followed was “member’s first,” a mantra that has since been used by many other organizations entering the cannabis industry.
TGC broke the mold in 2006 by morphing into a delivery service. Today, TGC still offers many strains, cannabis infused edibles and smoking alternatives with the same friendly service and low prices people have come to expect. TGC has also been known as an exemplar in community and outreach services by offering member consulting, care giving services, and an online community, going above and beyond traditional dispensary services, making it clear to not only its members, but the community and the local government as well, that cannabis is much more important than many people deem it to be.
On June 15, 2013, TGC finally opened a new storefront at 4218 Mission Street in the Excelsior District of San Francisco. As an organization, it is our top priority to provide members with quality medication at the low prices they have come to expect from us. It is important to The Green Cross to offer our members a comfortable and accessible place to come purchase cannabis and cannabis infused products from professional and courteous staff members.
A primary goal of TGC is to improve the social and economic conditions of the neighborhood, while providing living wages to residents of the surrounding area. Since opening our storefront at 4218 Mission Street, we have employed several residents of the neighborhood. We take pride in providing employment opportunities to talented individuals from a diverse array of backgrounds. Moreover, TGC has taken the initiative to join various local neighborhood associations to help better the district we now call home. We hope you will stop by and visit us soon.
