Kuvaus:
The Cannabis Culture Store has gone through many names over the years. First founded by Marc Emery in 1994 as HEMP BC, the store was located in a small space across the street from the current location. HEMP BC was the first and only store in Canada at the time where anyone could buy bongs, pipes, grow books and marijuana seeds.

Marc Emery led a nationwide retail revolution, encouraging others to open similar shops across Canada, and providing wholesale products to get them started. Repeated raids in 1996, 1997 and 1998 eventually led to the store closing for a time. However, in 2001 the store re-opened as the headquarters for the BC Marijuana Party, and was known as the BCMP Bookstore.

In 2007, the store changed the name again to reflect its range of products and the historical significance of the building (as well as to coordinate with Marc Emery’s Cannabis Culture Magazine), and is now known as Marc Emery’s Cannabis Culture Headquarters, or CCHQ.

Since Marc Emery’s extradition to the US and imprisonment in a federal penitentiary for selling marijuana seeds, Marc’s wife Jodie has taken over as owner and operator of the business and as a passionate advocate for marijuana legalization.

CCHQ is the #1 place to find everything related to the cannabis culture! Visit us 364 days of the year (we’re only closed on Christmas day).

We have everything you need but the weed!
