BPG is a medical cannabis collective organized to serve patients in the Greater Berkeley area. We provide safe and affordable access to a wide variety of medication, including dried herbs, edibles, extracts, and concentrates.

BPG is one of California’s largest and most respected medical cannabis collectives. We have provided safe access, fair prices, and a 2,500 sq. ft. community center to thousands of Northern California patients since 2000. Our management team has more than 50 years of collective experience in medical cannabis provision, grass roots activism, public education, and cannabis law reform efforts.

BPG is committed both to providing safe access — and to protecting it. We strive to operate a dispensary that is a model of compassion and legal integrity. BPG operates in strict compliance with the letter and the spirit of California’s medical cannabis laws.

In addition to providing safe and affordable access to medical cannabis, BPG also provides members with other free services and activities.

There are two ways to join BPG

Option #1 — In Person

Join in person by bringing the original copy of your doctor’s letter of recommendation and your state-issued photo ID to BPG during regular business hours. If you have a medical cannabis ID card, you may bring that as well. Please note that medical cannabis ID cards are optional under state law. Your membership will be pending until we verify your letter of recommendation. You may not be able to receive services on the same day you join.

Option #2 — By Fax

You can fax your letter of recommendation and a completed online registration form in advance of your first visit. This way, you can be sure that your letter has been verified before you arrive. To register in advance, print a copy of the Online Advance Registration Form by clicking here.

Fax your completed registration form and your letter of recommendation to the BPG at (510) 540-1928. It usually takes 2-3 business days to complete the verification. You can check the status of your registration by calling us at (510) 540-6013 during regular business hours.

Be sure to sign your online registration form as we must have your permission to verify your recommendation.
