Meet NY HempLab
The cannabis industry is booming across the country with new opportunities for industrial hemp, medical cannabis, and recreational uses.
Naturally, New York State businesses, researchers, and consumers are eager to find their place in this emerging industry.
NY HempLab is here to help.
WHAT IS NY HEMPLAB?
HempLab is a registered 501(c)(3) independent industry organization that offers services to help build a thriving cannabis industry in New York — starting with hemp. We are at the forefront of New York state cannabis and are the first non-political organization to serve as the backbone for individuals and small/medium-sized cannabis businesses.
WHAT IS HEMPLAB’S PLAN?
We will serve the community in three critically important ways: 1. Educate about the workings of the cannabis industry ecosystem, from seed to sale, to drive economic growth and community development.
2. Incubate businesses and individuals looking to find their niche in this emerging industry.
3. Accelerate the industry as a whole, with an emphasis on upstate New York, by creating opportunities for businesses to get the support they need to get established, grow, and scale.
WHAT HAS HEMPLAB ACCOMPLISHED?
We’ve hosted several public events in the last few years. Most notably, in 2019 we partnered with the Rochester Chamber of Commerce to put on the city’s first-ever Cannabis Conference: CannaBusiness: Capitalizing on the Cannabis Economy. This was attended by more than 350 people and began a wide-ranging and nuanced conversation on the inevitable legalization of cannabis in New York state that is still ongoing.
WHO IS INVOLVED WITH HEMPLAB?
We continue to thoughtfully and strategically assemble New York state’s top cannabis industry experts, including leaders in:
Science & Research
Legal Services & Legislation
