BPG’s Helpful Tips for 4/20

April 13th, 2017

At Berkeley Patients Group, 4/20 is a cherished celebration of our family, community, and culture. It is our opportunity to show appreciation for you, our beloved members. We hope you will join us for this epic week-long celebration of our favorite holiday!

This year we are going bigger than ever. Specials kick off on Monday, 4/17, and stretch all the way through Sunday, 4/23. With all of the deals, events, giveaways, and excitement going on, things can get pretty crazy around this time.

Here’s our list of helpful tips to get the most out of your 4/20 holiday:


1. Make sure your California medical cannabis recommendation is current

You will need to show your medical cannabis recommendation from a doctor every time you visit our dispensary, even if you are already a member. We will accept either a hard copy or a photo of your rec.

Don’t have a medical cannabis recommendation? It’s (pretty) easy to get one. You can make an appointment, meet with a doctor, and receive your valid medical cannabis recommendation ONLINE. Try one of these services: Meadow MD, HelloMD, or Eaze.


2. Become a member of our dispensary, or renew your existing membership

Joining BPG is super easy, and you have several options to choose from. You can join online on our website, via email or fax, or in person at the dispensary.

We recommend joining or renewing your membership on our website or via email before visiting the dispensary. If you do decide to join in person, you can print and fill out our membership packet to avoid long wait times. Visit myBPG.com/join-us for full details and instructions for each method.


3. Place your order for express pick up to avoid long lines and reserve products you love

During 4/20 celebrations, lines can get long and products can sell out. To ensure your visit moves as quickly as possible, and that the product you want doesn’t sell out before you arrive, place your order online.

Ordering is easy on myBPG.com/order! You can place your order for express pick up anytime, all week long. Orders may be placed for same-day or next-day pick up. Don’t forget to click ‘confirm’ in the email that is sent after you place your order.


4. Shop for the deals (and demos!) you want

One of the beauties of the Bay Area is the option of choice — and there are a lot of choices around the 4/20 holiday! We’ve worked extra hard this year to make sure that BPG is the only stop you need to make to get the biggest savings and the best products.

Familiarize yourself with our deals, demos, and giveaways to get the most out of your 4/20. This year, we’re offering up to 40% off select products, hosting vendor demos (free samples!), giving away pounds of free medicine, and presenting a 4/20 concert at The UC Theatre!

An Important Message About BPG’s Delivery Service

February 6th, 2017

Effective today, February 6, 2017, Berkeley Patients Group will no longer offer home delivery service.

The increasing costs of providing this service make continuation of delivery impractical for us. To better serve our patients, we are choosing to invest these resources into renovating our dispensary to refresh and enhance your experience.

As our beloved BPG family continues to grow, evolve, and mature, we are committed to remaining nimble and adaptive to the changing landscape of the Northern California cannabis market. By shifting our focus and resources from delivery to the core services that our patients have come to rely most heavily upon, we can continue to serve all our patients to the highest standard of quality.

We thank you for your continued support as we work to continuously improve the BPG experience for you.

Cannabinoids: a guide to getting the most out of cannabis as your medicine

January 3rd, 2017

The two cannabinoids that have received the most attention have been tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). But did you know that, currently, there are 113 other known cannabinoids in cannabis?

At BPG, we test and label all of our products for 5 different cannabinoids: THC, CBD, CBN, THC-A and CBD-A. We do this because each cannabinoid provides a unique medicinal benefit to the patient.

It is our belief that patients can take full control of their healing by understanding how different cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids work together to affect their mind and body.

Understanding these concepts can help you tailor your medicine to your own specific ailments, which will ultimately lead to a more therapeutic choice in treatment and overall healthier living.
