We are having to delay launching the DCCC shop as we are having difficulty integrating it into our website atm. We will still be selling club merchandise at our events though, so no worries if you still havent got one of our 100% organic cotton club t-shirts produced in partnership with The Hemp trading company (THTC).

Our chairman is preparing to fly out to Spannabis in a few weeks to Europe's largest cannabis expo - now in its eleventh year at Fida de Cornella, Barcelona. It will also be the third year that the world cannabis conference has been held there. Attracting guest speakers from around the world and across multiple disciplines.
We will be busy networking and socialising as ironically Spannabis is the best place to catch up with the movers and shakers of the UK cannabis scene.
DCCC are also excited to announce that our chairman recorded the Hempresent radio show with Vivian McPeak recently. Vivian organises the worlds largest Hemp festival and cannabis celebration, Seattle Hempfest
Which is an annual event spread over three days in August. The event attracts over 100,000 guests and is quickly approaching its thirtieth anniversary!
