Hemp Lab was founded in 2018 by two native New Yorkers on a mission to bring the west coast back home. 


We provide cannabis education & access at compassionate and affordable pricing while working to destigmatize cannabis through community.


Made by New Yorkers


For New Yorkers.

Our founders met in high school, quickly bonding over a shared love of plant medicine & cannabis. Upon graduation, they relocated to Washington state to immerse themselves in the medical cannabis industry.


A year later, they started their first cannabis collective garden, allowing them to closely study and practice horticulture and extraction.


By their 3rd year they were operating 3 collective gardens in the state, honing their skills in indoor and outdoor cultivation & working with patients of various ailments with great success.


Returning to New York after 5 years, passionate about applying their experience & continuing their work in helping others at home and abroad, Hemp Lab NYC was conceived.
