Is mail order available?
Unfortunately, currently there are no regulations in place to allow for mail order of non-medical cannabis products.
Can I return/exchange product I bought pre-legalization?
Unfortunately all cannabis products sold prior to Oct. 17th, 2018 are now considered illegal as it was not obtained from a government authorized source and has not been recorded along with FARM’s cannabis retail license number. We were operating in the old medicinal cannabis dispensary regulatory market, having been licensed by the City of Victoria prior to Oct. 17th, 2018. FARM is moving forward compliantly in Canada and BC’s now legal cannabis retail market. Due to these changes we cannot accept, exchange, or allow cannabis products sold before Oct. 17th, 2018 in FARM stores.
Can I speak with someone to answer cannabis related questions?
Yes, you can contact us by phone 250.592.0027 or email your inquiry to and we will be sure to get back to you as soon as we are able.


What is B.C.’s approach to cannabis legalization?

The Province of BC has made the following regulatory decisions. Adults 19+:

  • May possess up to 30 grams of legal cannabis, dried or equivalent in non-dried form, in public.
  • May share up to 30 grams of legal cannabis with other adults (giving or selling to youth is a criminal offense and there are several measures that help prevent youth from accessing cannabis within the Cannabis Act).
  • May buy dried or fresh cannabis and cannabis oil from a provincially-licensed retailer.
  • May make cannabis products, such as food and drinks, at home as long as organic solvents are not used to create concentrates.

The Original FARM is told Cannabis edible products and concentrates will be legal for sale approximately one year after the Cannabis Act came into force on October 17th, 2018. 

Where can I consume cannabis now that its legalized?

B.C. will generally allow adults to use non-medical cannabis in public spaces where tobacco smoking and vaping are permitted (banned in areas frequented by youth, including community beaches, parks, and playgrounds). Use of cannabis in any form is illegal for all occupants while in vehicles, cannabis retail stores as well as cannabis lounges.

Now that cannabis is legalized can I travel with it?

Domestically, it is ok to fly with your legal cannabis, in dried or equivalent in non-dried form. Cannabis obtained through a government authorized source is legal throughout Canada.

Internationally, cannabis remains illegal to transport across the Canadian border. As a traveler, it’s your responsibility to be informed about the laws of the country you’re visiting (the legal status of cannabis use and possession laws).
