The membership costs entitles them to consume THC and CBD-based products such as cocktails, vaporizers and gummies, in exchange for points they accumulate as members of the club. The club has other amenities such as food, Internet access, Netflix and video games.
Plans for growth
In January 2021 the club would begin planting its own cannabis with the support of a university and there are also plans to grow hemp in partnership with cooperatives, according to Murray.
“This club is a message for the National Assembly deputies who are discussing a project that regulates medical cannabis, since as an association we have an acquired right to offer all that the bill indicates,” added Costa Rican President Alchemy.
