Hemp BC, our original retail store that opened on July 2nd, 1994 at 324 West Hastings Street in Vancouver, launched the first cannabis website in the world on September 30th, 1994. The World Wide Web had gone live in August of 1994, and now web sites could actually be created and put "online". In fact, our launch party for Hemp BC was shared at a location where our Hemp BC site was 'launched' in tandem with CBC.ca, Canada's largest national TV and Radio network.

The biggest celebration day in the cannabis culture is April 20. The April 20 (4/20) celebration originally started in the mid 1970s as the time of day after school, 4:20 pm, for high school students in San Rafael, California to meet to smoke pot. The phrase "I'll see at you at 4:20" became code for, "I'll be there to smoke a joint with you after classes are over".
