Welcome to Marc Emery's Cannabis Culture Headquarters in Vancouver, British Columbia.


The world-famous activist-owned CCHQ is located in downtown Vancouver, BC, Canada at 307 West Hastings Street.

Our store is home to a massive selection of high-quality glass pipes, bongs and oil rigs; as well as vaporizers, rolling papers, grinders, scales, movies, books, magazines, clothing and accessories, hash-making kits, stickers, games, and much more!

The Urban Shaman, located at the back of CCHQ's ground-level Floor One, boasts a wide array of entheogenic and psychedelic herbs for sale (but not marijuana).

Friday & Saturday: 10am - 10pm

Floor Two of CCHQ features the Vancouver Herb Museum, now open 7 days a week from 5pm until 11pm. The museum contains an amazing drug history museum with over 1500 artifacts, including 700 medicine bottles.


Two Floors of BCMP Headquarters hosts fabulous spaces where you can rent a table with a Volcano vaporizer for $5 per hour. Get wireless internet, watch cannabis movies on a big-screen TV, play a game on the pool table or "Prince of Pot" pinball machine, and meet like-minded people. Please note: we do not sell marijuana and there is no buying or selling of marijuana allowed in our building.

Sunday to Thursday: 10am - midnight
Friday & Saturday: 10am - 1am

Floor Two and Three also house the Cannabis Culture Magazine offices and Pot TV studios -- Canada's independent marijuana media and activism hub.


Since Marc Emery set up shop in 1994, this area of Vancouver has become known as "The Pot Block" and is currently home to a number of seed dealers and other pot-friendly stores. Come visit us and experience "Vansterdam"!


The Cannabis Culture Store has gone through many names over the years. First founded by Marc Emery in 1994 as HEMP BC, the store was located in a small space across the street from the current location. HEMP BC was the first and only store in Canada at the time where anyone could buy bongs, pipes, grow books and marijuana seeds.

Marc Emery led a nationwide retail revolution, encouraging others to open similar shops across Canada, and providing wholesale products to get them started. Repeated raids in 1996, 1997 and 1998 eventually led to the store closing for a time. However, in 2001 the store re-opened as the headquarters for the BC Marijuana Party, and was known as the BCMP Bookstore.

In 2007, the store changed the name again to reflect its range of products and the historical significance of the building (as well as to coordinate with Marc Emery's Cannabis Culture Magazine), and is now known as Marc Emery's Cannabis Culture Headquarters, or CCHQ.

Since Marc Emery's extradition to the US and imprisonment in a federal penitentiary for selling marijuana seeds, Marc's wife Jodie has taken over as owner and operator of the business and as a passionate advocate for marijuana legalization.

CCHQ is the #1 place to find everything related to the cannabis culture! Visit us 364 days of the year (we're only closed on Christmas day).

We have everything you need but the weed!
