Local Hemp Growers Among First Allowed To Grow Cannabis


Cortland’s Main Street Farms will receive one of the first adult-use cannabis licenses from the state Cannabis Control Board. 52 growers will help launch the new industry. More than 150 applied, and applications continue to be reviewed. These are the first adult-use cannabis licenses granted in New York State and they advance the Seeding Opportunity Initiative.

“New York’s farms have been the backbone of our state’s economy since before the American Revolution, and now, New York’s farms will be at the center of the most equitable cannabis industry in the nation,” Governor Hochul said. “I’m proud to announce the first adult-use cannabis cultivation licenses in the state, and I’m proud of the work the Office of Cannabis Management and the Cannabis Control Board are doing to get adult-use cannabis sales up and running as fast as possible without compromising our mission to uplift communities and individuals most impacted by the past century of cannabis prohibition.”

The other five licenses in Central New York are: Enfield Glen Hopyard LLC, B30F Enterprises LLC, HappyHealing420, American Weed, and Breathing Web Farms.
