Joining A Local Club

What You Should Know Before Joining

  • Cannabis Social Clubs are private entities that run on a nonprofit basis.

  • You must be 18 or over to join. Photo ID is required to join a club and sometimes a utility bill for proof of address. Patients under this age may join with a parent and must have a letter of medical diagnosis.

  • CSC’s exist to help create a safe setting for cannabis consumers to socialise in and keep cannabis activity out of the sight of children and off the streets.

  • A club may charge a membership fee to allow access to their members nights, door entry fees to events, and for other services or products to help keep their community alive.

  • CSC’s do not sell cannabis products and are not here to hook people up with a local dealer, rather connect them with a safe local community.

  • CSC’s encourage members who want access to cannabis products to form shared gardens following the UKCSC Tagged Plant Collective model.

Why Become A Member?

Joining a club as an official private member shows that you believe in the Cannabis Social Club model and want to see it continue to grow. Membership fees enable clubs to achieve the goals their members set and make progress along their journey rather than just surviving on a bare minimum level. Great things have small beginnings and it will be special to look back in years to come and say “I helped make that change happen”.

Being a member of one UKCSC club can often enable you access to other UKCSC club events around the UK throughout the year, get you discounts with businesses that support our aims. Check out the full list of UKCSC membership benefits here.

 

How To Join A Club

The first way that clubs allow new members to join is if they are recommended by a friend that is already a member of their club. The club will then interview the member and see if they pass the vetting process that the club has in place to protect its members.

Some CSC allow existing cannabis consumers to make contact who wish to join their membership. Clubs reserve the right to not reply, or refuse applications and will either interview the potential member or put them through their club vetting process.

You may have a friend who is a member of a club in another part of the country that tells you about their being a club near you. Some clubs will allow cross club recommendation providing that club is also part of the UKCSC as they will have signed up to the same set of principles we set out for everyone.  

Upon approval of these processes the new member will fill in a membership form and pay any club administration fee for joining.

 

Clubs With Their Own Premises

Some of the UK Clubs have their own full time premises that is open several days a week and evenings for private members of that club. It is important that members keep the locations of CSC’s they have been made aware of secret from non members unless someone has been authorised to invite a friend or new member to the club.

UKCSC Clubs that are open in the UK welcome other clubs to visit and see how they operate as a functional club and membership so that we can transfer the knowledge we are learning to each other to help speed up the process for social acceptance.

The running and maintenance costs for clubs with a premises of their own is often higher than clubs without and therefore annual memberships fees may be higher.

 

What If There Are No Clubs Or Communities Near Me?

You may well be the one that needs to start something great. The UKCSC exists because we saw a need for something closer to home. If you feel the same, then we have a lot of practical advice on how to go about getting on your way to helping set up a branch of one of the fastest growing social movements in the UK.

      1. Lauren Stevens

        Hiya, sorry to bother you but I am looking for some advice if possible?
        My name is Lauren and I’m looking on behalf of my cousin, Tracey, she is 42 years old and at present has cancer in the bone, breast and lung. She has just finished a course of chemotherapy and had a scan to say that her cancer has spread to her spine. She is in insane pain daily and is basically dying. I have bought a book recommended to me, medical cannabis guidebook by Jeff ditchfield. I am keen to grow my own plants and make my own oil but am aware that initially it is a long process, that coupled with the fact that my mum isn’t entirely enamoured by the idea! I was wondering if there is any way of purchasing the thc oil I believe can help her? I have purchased online a 25% cbd oil but it did little in the way of help. Thank you so so much in advance, Lauren

  11. Delasi Heymann

    Good afternoon. My name is Delasi and I have been diagnosed with stage 4 endometriosis (an autoimmune disease), severe asthma, slipped disc…… I think you get the point! The list goes on. I am on several opiates I.e. morphine, tramadol and dihydrocodeine including several other painkillers. I’ve had 9 procedures and am awaiting spine and back surgery which I will have later this year.
    I have been smoking and cooking with cannabis for several years and have found many benefits from this. I was recently raided for a small amount of cannabis I grew for my medicinal uses and as a result it was confiscated.

    Unfortunately, my pain still remains and I face challenges daily.
    Please please could someone contact me in regards to joining a group near me.

    Yours kindly,
    Delasi Heymann

  18. Tammy Dale

    I have had a condition called dermatomyositis with scleroderma overlap, an auto-immune disease for over 20 years. it requires some pretty nasty medicine and cannabis helped with the associated medication-induced nausea. Shame to keep legitimate help from people. I’m an outspoken advocate and have written to Dr. David Nutt in support of reform. Where in London can I join?

  19. David Mcleish

    I’ve been trying to join a club since I joined UKCSC in June, no one has contacted me. I don’t know any members. Though I know that there are clubs in my area I don’t know where they are. I’ve emailed UKCSC head office , even had my membership confirmed & invited someone to interview me so that I may join a club. I’ve had no response from anyone.
    This is the strangest ‘oganisation’ I’ve ever experienced. Can anyone help please?
