ATTN: IDPH strongly advises patients to NOT switch dispensaries due to system updates
We know what a financial hardship living with chronic illness creates, which is why we created the Cannabis Compassion Program - to donate 1% of our medical cannabis 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 and demonstrate financial need to qualify and apply. 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 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, or you can download the application below and submit via email.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 within a year of applying.
Huge thanks to our colleagues at the Berkeley Patients Group for inspiring us to create this program. #cannabiscompassionprogram
