Bristol Cannabis Club started as a Facebook page on 1st May 2012, as part of the UK Cannabis Social Clubs initiative. The page passed through several groups of admins until finally becoming a fully functioning social club with its first social meeting at the end of May 2014.
The current team of club administrators, who come from all walks, including an Infrastructure Manager, Sales Manager, Rope access technician, Care Home Manager, Medical Herbalist, Senior Analyst, Students, Quality Control Technicians, house wives/husbands and gardeners, came together due to their mutual interest and passion in both cannabis and cannabis law reform, and a common desire to drive change to the current system and laws. Also to provide a point for patients who use cannabis as medicine to be able to source information and education.
Many of our club members are keen horticulturists and part of our current fundraising proceeds will be dedicated to supporting a local community garden project in Bristol, helping to provide fresh produce. Club members are also raising funds to be able to contribute towards the cost of patients traveling to more lenient states and countries for therapeutic treatments.
We organise monthly public social evenings in a local pub or community centre in different areas of the city, where people can relax and chat with other like minded individuals. The club admins meet in a private location every 2 to 3 weeks to work on our future plans and website.
We are always looking for new venues which are accessible for people who are reliant on wheelchairs within the city or surrounding areas. If anyone reading this has any suggestions then please use the contact form to let us know.
Interested parties can attend any of our public events, details can be found on our Facebook page , or via the events tab here on our website or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We also have a mailing list which people can sign up to by registering their interest via our email address. Or alternatively subscribing to our mailing list via this website at register
Bristol Cannabis Club is not currently charging membership fees, and will not start to do so until we have membership packages available and the systems in place to provide a secure and regular membership service. Until this service is ready we are raising funds from donations and by raffling items donated by local and national allied businesses.
