The oldest and largest not-for-profit medical cannabis dispensary in Canada.
Founded in 1997, we are the longest continuously-running dispensary in the Americas.
Located in Vancouver, BC, on Coast Salish territory, profits from your cannabis purchases help subsidize services & medicines in our Wellness Centre where we provide natural therapies, such as herbalism, acupuncture & massage work to those most in need.
We know that diagnoses hold no prejudices, & that people of all kinds have come to require some form of access to cannabis. We also understand how difficult modern medicine can be to navigate, especially when living with an ailment, which is why our unique community health model is widely known as a safe space of healing. People can feel empowered to learn about natural whole plant medicine in our diverse & welcoming space. Your personal healing is your path & we are here to help.
We envision a world in which cannabis & other natural therapies are readily accessible as well as socially supported. They will be legally protected & regulated in a manner that is consistent with the highest standard of care. Those who use, produce and distribute these medicines will be free from legal, social & political sanctions. We will each take responsibility for our individual, collective & environmental health while honouring the diversity in each other & in the natural world we live.
It's unfortunate that we didn't have anything in your price range. The BC Compassion Club has a diverse membership with a variety of incomes & we try to have a menu that reflects that by offering strains between 4$-10$ a gram. For the future please know we can weigh our cannabis flower to any dollar amount, so people can make purchases within their budget. If you return to the BCCCS feel free to talk to our staff about affordable options & low cost items. Please also know a large majority (approx 80%) of the funds from our medicine sales go directly into subsidizing healing treatments (cranial sacral, acupuncture, massage therapy etc.) for our membership in our community focused Wellness Centre.
