Is BeKind Kelowna or Vernon Currently Open?
No. Legally stores in BC need to be licensed through both the province and city. Licenses for private retailers will likely not be issued until early 2019.
When will BeKind open again?
We are currently in the midst of applying with the Province and the City of Kelowna and Vernon for licenses and anticipate being open in 2019.
Where can I purchase Cannabis?
Currently the only legally operating store in BC is a provincially owned and operating store in Kamloops. each province has different regulations, so we recommend reaching out to your local governments to find the closest open store to you if you are not in BC.
How do I become a member?
When we re-open in 2019, you will only need to be over 19 and have valid ID.
Can I purchase Cannabis Products from BeKind online?
We currently do not offer such an option. We also will not accept calls to order over the phone and ship out anywhere. If you want to order cannabis online, we recommend that you register with a Licensed Producer with a completed ACMPR authorization. You can find a list of current Licensed Producers here: List of Licensed Producers.
If you are from BC, you are welcome to purchase online from the province.
I suffer from __________, what Cannabis Product will help with that?
Unfortunately, we are legally unable to make medical claims promoting the use of cannabis as a medicine. The internet is a great resource as long as you can remember to use discretion and remain skeptical. Some great pages that you can visit are leafly.com and weedmaps.com. You best option, however, is to reach out to your medical health practitioner, ask questions, and if you are still not sure you can seek out second opinions.
I am interested in opening a dispensary, is BeKind licensing or franchising?
