About Us

Our Mission
Champlain Valley Dispensary and Southern Vermont Wellness are nonprofit businesses dedicated to providing high quality (organic and non organic) lab-tested, affordable cannabis to our patients. We aim to treat our patients with respect and educate them about pain management through cannabis treatments and alternative health practices as supplements to standardized medicine. We offer our patients a safe option versus the dangerous practices of the illegal drugs market. We seek to represent the best practices for the distribution, regulation and taxation of medical cannabis. We pledge to uphold and enforce the laws of Burlington and the State of Vermont.

Our History
Champlain Valley Dispensay is privileged to be the first medical marijuana dispensary to be licensed in the State of Vermont. Our license was granted in July 2012 and we opened our doors to patients on June 21, 2013. Southern Vermont Wellness will be opening its doors to patients on February 13, 2014.

As we continue to develop our cultivation and dispensary facilities, regular updates will be given here. Watch this space for history in the making.

Our Medicine
Our aim is to provide consistent high-grade cannabis our members can rely on. We focus on offering the choice of the highest (both organic and non organic) medicinal qualities of each strain. We constantly work to increase our knowledge of new cultivation techniques and innovations, and we work with our members to ensure this knowledge finds its way into higher quality medicine. Because of the relationships that we have, we can offer more affordable prices to our patients on select top-shelf medical cannabis.

Our Grow Facility
CVD and SVW combine the best of old and new practices. We use tried and tested organic gardening techniques with latest technology, including LED and plasma lighting systems. At our cultivation facility we produce 100% organic medical cannabis, bubble hash and kief, as well as organic edibles, teas and tinctures.

Our Staff
Our staff and patient consultants are experts at proper cannabis use and best practices for medicating, including proper use of tinctures, edibles, salves and vaporizers. We encourage the sharing of experiences between staff and patients so that we can relieve the symptoms of others.
