(The Original FARM / Hillside location)

Whether you’re looking for top-notch product, award-winning customer service or an informative and educational approach to cannabis, one local Island-based dispensary has got you covered – and then some.

Not only does Original FARM have Vancouver Island’s largest retail cannabis selection, they also celebrated their 6th anniversary last month.

Since first opening its doors in April 2015, Original FARM has been widely recognized as a leader in its industry; both through their cannabis experience and community support.

To date, they’ve raised over $150,000 for BC Cancer Foundation, as well as another $100,000 for Victoria Women’s Transition House Society. 

“We’ve come a long way since we first opened,” says Liberty Brunet, Head of HR at Original FARM.  “But we’re most proud of the difference we’ve been able to make in supporting our community.”

In celebrating a new chapter in their philanthropic efforts, Original FARM provides direct support to organizations that impact their local communities, both within Victoria and the larger South Island area.

“We chose to start this new chapter by donating to the BC SPCA. They do such great work for animals in our community,” says Brunet.

“Original FARM is a pet-friendly, dog-loving company so it seemed like a great fit. Dogs are welcome in our stores, and we offer locally made vegan dog treats for our canine visitors.” 

Original FARM is also seeking recommendations for local charities to support in the future.

“We’re excited to be able to focus on these programs making a real difference in our community,” says Brunet.

“But this is just a start — we can’t wait to hear from our customers about new ways we can continue to give back to the Island.”

If you’d like to nominate an organization for the Original FARM to support, you can visit their website and submit a suggestion.

FARM carries over 180 strains of flower, as well as gummies, chocolates, massage oils, bath bombs, beverages, capsules, topicals, tinctures and more.

Aside from their expansive in-person shopping experience featuring embedded in-counter digital menus, credit and debit payment options, and new product displays featuring carefully selected cannabis accessories, you can also avoid the line-ups with a convenient click and collect option.

Check out the online menu where you can shop the menu and place orders for pick up from your chosen FARM location. Orders are packaged within one hour, reserved for 24 hours, and paid for in-store.
