At HopeNet, we see medical cannabis patients finding hope and relief with an array of medical cannabis products. Many HopeNet patients suffer from Anxiety, Asthma, Muscle Spasms, Insomnia, Abdominal/Back and Leg pains, HIV, Diabetes, and Multiple Sclerosis. Patients also come to us that are addicted to a Hard Drug such as Crack, Cocaine, Heroin, and use Medical Cannabis instead of a Hard Drug or even go through rigorous treatment programs using another harmful drug called Methadone. Methadone is currently used as an alternative for individuals that need help with a Hard Drug addiction.

Yet, marijuana withdrawal is not nearly as severe as withdrawal from most other drugs. Giving up drinking can cause fatal seizures. Heroin users vomit and sweat for days; sudden withdrawal can be fatal. In fact, some doctors specializing in treating addicts would rather prescribe marijuana for anxiety and insomnia than sleeping pills or Valium and Xanax, which are highly addictive.
Patients suffering from chemical addictions can find Hope at HopeNet with a new product called MJ4X, Hemp Oil Concentrate. The medicine is taken orally instead of vaporizing or smoking to relieve symptoms. MJ4x combats cancer, relieves pain, and addresses other conditions such as arthritis, cramps, diabetes and MS.
With MJ4X, you use a small dose (grain of rice) to achieve the desired effect. Ingesting medical cannabis can help in providing relief for patients combat their illness, however, some patients recommend to eat food and drink water before taking MJ4X to alleviate any side effects. Side effects such as sleepiness or anxiety will vary with each individual. A cup of Detox Tea will alleviate unwanted symptoms.
Recently, a current patient of HopeNet has been tapering their methadone intake and started taking the MJ4X medicine 3 times a day. The patient reports they have been more focused and able to enjoy life. The patient has dramatically improved their well being.

HopeNet, one of San Fransicso’s oldest and most trusted dispensaries, is happy to announce two significant steps in their mission to alleviate suffering through medicinal marijuana. Facility upgrades mean HopeNet is a safer, more inviting place, and extended hours mean more patients will be able to use the facility.
“HopeNet members are excited about the extended hours from 10 A.M. to 9 P.M. in San Francisco’s South of Market district (SOMA),” said Catherine Smith, spokesperson for HopeNet. “We really look forward to helping a large number of new people in our great new space and through our extended hours.”
Finding HopeNet open in the past has proven difficult, as most patients have busy work-days that overlapped with rush-hour traffic and their office hours. Opening earlier and staying open later in the evening will help patients avoid the rush and stress of getting their medication in a timely fashion, and hopefully offer just that much more of a relief when walking through HopeNet’s front door. A patient can now afford to spend 10-15 minutes and smoke a joint, relax, read or chat with others, and enjoy a cup of fresh water before heading back out onto 9th Street. Patients will also feel secure at night while inside and outside of HopeNet with improved lighting for extra security.
HopeNet has the Best Quality Cold Water Hash and Award Winning Marijuana. Edibles are Single and Double dose ranging from delicious flavored Hard Candies to Sliced Pound Cake. For Patients that are disabled or seriously ill, they can take advantage of HopeNet’s Free Medical Cannabis Delivery Service that covers San Francisco Bay Area. Patients can review the daily menu before placing an order at their convenience from home and have their medical marijuana within the hour.
At HopeNet, Medical Cannabis Patients can purchase medicine and medicate on-site at their leisure. Springtime brings a revitalized Zen Den at HopeNet, with the scent of fresh flora and water falling filling the air; while the 420 Lounge gets new furnishings and the ever-available assortment of smoking and vaporizing accessories.
City and State regulations require patients to have their I.D. and proof of recommendation on them at all times when visiting a dispensary. Only a verifiable doctor’s recommendations is valid at HopeNet Northern California.
