Over the years, we have donated over $195,000 to our patients in financial need. We know what a financial hardship living with chronic illness creates. We believe cannabis changes lives and understand it is a privilege, which is why we created the Cannabis Compassion Program - to donate 1% of our sales to economically distressed patients, free of charge.
Applicants who get into the program will receive store credit every month for six months – either January through June, or July through December. The monthly assistance amount is currently $240 per month.
You must be a patient registered at Dispensary 33 for at least 120 consecutive days prior to the submission date to qualify and apply. You must also demonstrate financial need: living under the poverty line or receiving SNAP, Medicaid or any other need-based government assistance will qualify you for CCP assistance.
Apply during May and November! Spring Applications open up May 1st and are due May 31st. Fall applications open November 1st and are due November 30th.
During these months paper applications will be available at the front desk of the dispensary.Download the Application
All eligible applicants for an application period are randomly assigned a queue number, which determines their place on the waitlist. Most applicants waitlisted will be selected in the following round of awards.
Huge thanks to our colleagues at the Berkeley Patients Group for inspiring us to create this program. #cannabiscompassionprpgram #ccp
