The Seneca Nation aims to formally enter the cannabis industry early this year.
Construction is underway on Nativa Cannabis, a 2,500-square-foot dispensary that will be located on the Seneca Nation’s Niagara Falls territory at the corner of John Daly Boulevard and Niagara Street.
To support the dispensary, a 90,000-square-feet cultivation facility will be established on the Seneca Nation’s territory in the Southern Tier. Both projects are the Seneca Nation’s first ventures into the regulated cannabis market, though there are about two dozen independent retail cannabis operations on Seneca territory in the region.
In opening Nativa Cannabis, the Seneca Nation’s official entry into the legal cannabis market joins other efforts of Indigenous nations across the state. The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe, Oneida Nation and Cayuga Nation have all either opened or are in the process of opening legal cannabis operations.
