Once we have all of the required paperwork, we go through an orientation with you to welcome you to the club and answer any of your questions about cannabis medicine. The sign up process takes approximately 15 minutes. We can do this orientation in person in Victoria, BC, or we can do it over the phone with the patient or with their caregiver. If you would like an in depth orientation to cannabis, we are more than happy to take as long as required to ensure your comfort and confidence. 

Give us a call at 250-381-4220 or email us at to arrange a phone orientation or to ask any questions you may have regarding the sign up process.

If you prefer, you can fill out our French application here:


The VCBC’s primary mandate is to provide its membership with safe access to medicinal cannabis and cannabis related products.

Membership at the VCBC requires a physician’s diagnosis of a permanent physical disease, condition or disability.

Unfortunately, we are unable to accept prescriptions of medications as a proof of condition. The only exception is a prescription for cannabis, or a prescription for opiates. See below for more information on opiate prescriptions.

Some examples of the conditions we accept but are not limited to:

  • Cancer
  • Auto-immune diseases
  • Chronic pain & Neuropathy
  • Brain injury
  • Arthritis
  • Restless leg syndrome
  • IBS
  • Epilepsy
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Opiate Addiction*

*A prescription or receipt for Methadone, Methadose or Suboxone is all that is needed, as opposed to a doctors note.

Basically, if you have any chronic condition and have a doctors note that states you have this condition, we would happily welcome you if you would like to join our club!

Please Note:

  • Many people who suffer from various mental health conditions can greatly benefit from cannabis and we at the VCBC recognize this. However, due to the correlation between schizophrenia, psychosis, and cannabis, we require a specific recommendation for cannabis from a health care practitioner for those treating Schizophrenia.
