Starbuds Canada Medical Marijuana Access Centers



We are a grass roots, community based, Medical Marijuana Access Center based in the Central Okanagan, BC. We offer support and resources to members of our community seeking to navigate their way through the sometimes very complicated medical marijuana regulations in Canada.
Many sufferers of chronic medical conditions may be wary of regular prescription drug use, especially if they require medication for pain relief. Often times, these medications can be addictive and/or come with severe, unpleasant side effects, including potential for overdose. One of medical marijuana's greatest advantages is its remarkable safety and wide range of medical benefits. It has little effect on major physiological functions and there is no known case of lethal overdose.
We assist people in medical need obtain a medical marijuana Access Center membership and access to a safe, clean, quality supply of medical marijuana and related products.

Testimonials from our Valued Clients

  • I m a retired aircraft maintenance person and from 1999-2003 i was exposed to deadly toxins emitted by chemicals used in an aircraft hangar, its ventilation system was operating at 1/10 th of the capacity needed and myself and 70+ employees were effected to the point of disability even death. I ran the gamut of prescribed pharmacueticals but since most prescribed pharms contain many of the same chemicals that i had been exposed to on a daily basis, they caused me numerous side effects and they made my condition(s) worse...i started using cannabis for my issues, particularly a Sativa strain to help me to lead a more productive and happy life. Starbuds is "bar none" to any other dispensary i have visited in the past and i will continue to return here for my medication because: Jessie and staff are the most knowledgeable and helpful, friendly and compassionate people i have ever met in the industry, often giving me product discount because they know i struggle with finances. It is a great relief to me to know that the staff at Starbuds is truly "in my corner" and not just there to reap the profits. They are a professional team that will be able to answer all your questions and address all your concerns. Be patient because some times it takes a few different varieties until you arrive at a strain or product that meets your needs. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK STARBUDS, i m very happy and relieved to have you in my community to delivery what no pharmacy could. Thanks a Million!

  • When you have a headache, you head to the local drug store for Advil or Tylenol because you need relief Now! Due to a car accident, 25 years ago, I suffer from Degenerative Disc Disease at C5/C6 Vertebrae. Constant inflammation pinch the nerves causing pain and immobility. Prescription drugs stopped working for me after 20 years so I researched and found amazing results with Marijuana. And No Constipation! I applied for a medicinal licence in 2010 and now enjoy medication that produces effective results in pain relief & mobility. But we need access. With the new laws looming and rumors of dispensary closures, how can we move forward to continue helping the millions who suffer chronic disease. Both physical & mental works are stressful on my body.Without medication, I can not work. The relief of knowing I can pick up product locally helps me each day to move forward with a productive life. Thanks StarBuds!

  • I love this shop!, the employees are so nice it feels like family every time you go in, very welcoming, and very knowledgeable. The products are really good , and there is a lot of variety as well. 5/5 :)
  • What a great place! I use very little Cannabis and so I'm always out of the loop as far as who's selling and have to content myself with whatever I can find at the time, which is often very poor quality. Starbuds has changed that. Great staff. Great selection. Easy to get to. Great hours. Excellent quality. I hope you're around for a long time.

  • What a great shopping experience! Neil and his staff are friendly and welcoming. You can ask these folks anything and expect a very knowledgeable answer, no eye rolling or snickering just someone who will tell you what you need to know. I look forward to my visits with these guys, there is no intimidation factor just a chill relaxed scene. Its so much easier than mail order for me and you can see and smell exactly what you are going to purchase. The products are top notch and the prices are fair bordering on ridiculously cheap, when they have something on special.

  • Wow! What customer service! Kamloops sometimes is lacking in customer service but not at Starbuds. Amazing competent and extremely knowledgeable staff. From the second I walked in the door I was made to feel comfortable and welcome. Tabitha was so helpful in assisting me with the process and paperwork and John had so much information for me. He patiently answered my questions and helped me find what was best suited for me. I can't say enough about the wonderful staff. Kamloops is lucky to have such caring, kind and knowledgeable people in a much needed place. Thank you Starbuds!

  • I've been visiting Starbuds for a while now and I absolutely love it! Neil and the gang are so friendly, knowledgeable and helpful each time I come into the store. I have to add that the new brownie bites that they have in are a must try. It's the first edible that I've ever eaten where I can't even tell it's medicated. If you keep them in the fridge, take one out and put it in the microwave for 10 seconds. Thank me later ;) You rock Starbuds!!

  • For years, I've been on several narcotics/opiates for my spinal injuries and several different meds for my anxiety and depression. StarBuds gives me options other than standard pharmaceutical treatment. I'm now able to function by taking care of my pain, crippling anxiety and depression without harming my liver any further or suffering from other nasty side effects. The staff is professional, compassionate, friendly, knowledgeable and honest.

  • I have been to several dispensaries along the west coast and have yet to find one with the selection and quality of products that Starbuds provides. The staff is very friendly, incredibly helpful and knowledgeable of the products they sell. They make you feel welcome and are always able to answer any questions.

  • I have taken my wife to StarBuds Cannabis Compassion Society in Westbank (West Kelowna, BC) to try and help her find a solution to help what ails her. My wife has had a very rough life before she met me & I have been searching for a way to help her deal with her daily pains for many years. She is a multiple event cancer survivor, Has been in car accidents which she broke most of the vertebrae in her spine, and is extremely accident prone. Migraines get so bad she has been hospitalized in order to deal with them. When I introduced her to the Candies the StarBuds Compassion Society makes available she had the best sleep she has had in thirty years, woped out her Migraine, and allowed her to be comfortable for the first time in years. Thank you StarBuds for everything you do.
