High Hopes in the news

Our Story

Founding and origin

High Hopes, which started as a harm reduction program in Vancouver’s downtown eastside, aimed to provide a safe and non-lethal alternative to illicit street drugs for substance users. Now, it has become the first federally-licensed cannabis substitution program in Canada.

Meet High Hopes

We have evolved from a grassroots organization in 2017 into a federally-licensed medical cannabis social enterprise in 2022. High Hopes now offer technology-empowered, human-centered healthcare, in-person or from anywhere in Canada through our application.

The vision

We believe in whole-person care by leveraging our collaborative care network, which includes medical practitioners, specialists, caregivers, peer support and loved ones.

The philosophy

Since its founding, High Hopes has been on a mission to put medical back in medical cannabis by creating personalized care and customized cannabis-focused care plan designed by healthcare professionals.

We connect patients and communities through a unique and comprehensive network of providers, government agencies and health resources to improve overall quality of care.

Giving back

Your purchase with High Hopes helps us employ people within the DTES community and subsidize the cost of medical cannabis for those who are using medical cannabis as a substitute for illicit and more dangerous drugs.
