Sustainable and community-focused cannabis cultivators in Jamestown, NY

Future women-owned cannabis cultivation based in Western NY



Snowbelt has been working relentlessly for over 3 years now to make sure we are best-prepared for this application process to become cannabis cultivators in the great city of Jamestown, NY. The state has set up a two-tier system where you either are on the production side or the retail side of the industry. So we will grow cannabis and then wholesale our products to a dispensary near you when the time comes.

We currently have our adult-use cannabis applications summitted to the state and are waiting to hear back from them.

We got our hemp grower license in June of 2022 to better prepare for cannabis and grow high quality CBD and CBG for our community. We are currently are leasing and building out the first 10,000 sq. ft. in a building in Jamestown.

Offer quality well paying jobs and educational opportunities and charitable contributions  to supportlocal residents lives that have been impacted by cannabis prohibition

As avid snowboarders, we are aware of the climate change issues happening around us, affecting snowfall totals and winters around the world. It's important to us that Snowbelt’s brand portrays our love for the conservation of the planet and passion for supporting and nurturing our local community.

Our Business Model

Snowbelt Cannabis will have the ability to vegetate up to 10,000 square feet of plant canopy, will grow up to 16+ different strains of cannabis, and will have the ability to grow from seedling to finished product. We will utilize vertical racks in our vegetative rooms to maximize space for flowering. We will use as little pesticides as possible by being vigilant about sterilization, cleanliness and preventative measures such as antibacterial walls and biological controls. We will treat our flowers with the utmost care and respect all the way through harvesting, trimming, and curing. We intend to offer a high quality, terpene rich, clean and inspected product in a variety of genetics for a diverse consumer base. 

To strive for the best sustainability we will be using as many LED Lights as possible. LED lights are the future of indoor growing, they use less electricity, create less heat, last longer, and as science progresses they will become more efficient and effective in light spectrum. All products manufactured by Snowbelt will be sold on a wholesale basis to in-state dispensaries and processors. We will apply for the Processing and Distribution licenses along with Cultivation, to be able to process our own oils and distribute our own products as a means for vertical integration growth.
