HIGH HOPES IN THE NEWS

We’re on a mission to put medical back in medical cannabis

High Hopes began as a cannabis harm reduction program in downtown eastside that aims to provide substance users in the area with a safe, non-deadly alternative to illicit street drugs.

We started High Hopes because we believe everyone deserves access to quality, affordable medical cannabis.

Our goal is to dramatically reduce the cost of medical cannabis for patients who are using medical cannabis as a substitute for illicit toxic street drugs.

Our Story

Founding and origin

High Hopes began as a cannabis harm reduction program in downtown eastside that aims to provide substance users in the area with a safe, non-deadly alternative to illicit street drugs.


Meet High Hopes

Our mission is to offer safe, affordable & potent medical cannabis to anyone who needs it, whether it is medical care or self-care.


The vision

High Hopes is committed to supplying affordable and potent medical cannabis – without charging a premium for it. Ultimately, cannabis is medicine, and we believe you should not have to decide between medicine or food.


The philosophy

Since its founding, High Hopes has been dedicated to providing the most effective, safe, and potent cannabis products on the market. We take a steadfastly independent approach to product research and development, and our mission is to provide our customers with the best cannabis products available.

We carefully select our farmers and cannabis products, choosing only those with a proven track record of safety and efficacy. We believe in the healing powers of flowers and plants, and we use pure ingredients and smart science to bring the best cannabis products to our customers.

We never introduce new medical cannabis products without thoroughly researching the genuine needs of our customers and ensuring that they meet the highest standards of quality and efficacy. At High Hopes, we are committed to providing our customers with the best possible medical cannabis experience.


The craftmanship

At High Hopes, we are committed to community and craftsmanship. Our team of peer workers together with skilled craftswomen and craftsmen work together to grow the finest cannabis products in the world. Located in the beautiful town of Hope, nestled between the Salish Sea and the Rocky Mountains, we are surrounded by the perfect environment for growing some of the best cannabis in the world.

The farmers are the first to care for our cannabis flowers. They are the ones who ensure that each bud is given the attention and love it deserves before it undergoes the transformation process that results in the high-quality cannabis that we are known for.

We believe that there are too many mass-produced cannabis products and not enough soulful ones. We believe that the soul of a cannabis product comes from the intention with which it is created and the attention with which it is prepared. We believe that the future of cannabis lies in craftsmanship and the passionate souls who work with us.

What you experience when using our products is the result of hard work, passion, and soul of our farmer partners.
