Since January 1, BPG has been working closely with Berkeley city officials to effectively lower the recreational cannabis tax rate from 10% to 5%.
Beginning today, March 29, we are extremely proud to offer our members the lowest cannabis tax rates in the East Bay!
Over the next few weeks, we will be making changes to include the 15% excise tax in the price of each product. This will ultimately result in even lower prices for you!
While we believe this is an incredible start, our fight is not over. Please join our efforts in creating a cannabis community that serves everyone.
Contact your representative and tell them to support AB 3157. This will lower the excise tax on cannabis from 15% to 11%, and suspend the cultivation tax for the next 3 years.
We can’t do this without you!
Your Buds at BPG
We love Berkeley because it boasts some of the best in the Bay — best food, best people, best cannabis, and best hikes!
Whether you are looking for an alternative activity in your workout routine or a fun weekend outing, a Berkeley hike is guaranteed to leave you satisfied (though we are a little biased).
In anticipation of the warm spring weather, we paired some of our favorite views with some of our favorite strains. As always, consume responsibly in the comfort of your home. Don’t drive while impaired and don’t smoke in public (while only a $75 fine in California, it’s still illegal).
Now lace up those sneakers, it’s time to sweat!

“Every week my son and I travel this route where we can see the most beautiful views from above. It is a must-see for travelers to this area. On a clear day it is the Bay Area at it’s finest.” – Deborah on TripAdvisor

Help expand research on medical cannabis!
Participate in the following studies being conducted:
The purpose of both studies is to understand how medical cannabis use among patients with chronic pain affects pain management, quality of life, and the use of other medications.
The information you provide will help inform physicians, researchers, policy-makers, and patients about potential benefits and risks of cannabis as a therapeutic or recreational agent.
In November 2016, voters in California overwhelmingly supported and passed Proposition 64, the legalization of cannabis. On January 1, BPG will begin providing products and services to both medical patients and adult consumers over 21.
See below for a brief overview of how these changes may affect you.
