At Elevate ADK, our passion for quality cannabis meets a commitment to local excellence. Founded on a deep-rooted belief in the value of community-focused business, we pride ourselves on exclusively partnering with New York-owned and operated farms. In a market dominated by multi-state operators (MSOs), we stand out by curating a unique selection of locally-produced products, many of which are grown and processed by family-owned businesses in our region.
Elevate ADK’s Cannabis journey began in 2014 when Doug Butdorf, alongside friends and investors, embarked on a mission to advocate fair cannabis regulations that led to the inception of North Country Roots, Inc. Despite facing challenges in the initial licensing process, our determination never wavered.
In 2022, the passing of the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act (MRTA) marked a turning point, paving the way for us to secure a Conditional Adult Use Retail License.
By January 2023, with the invaluable addition of Eli Emery to our team, we were ready to launch the Elevate ADK Cannabis Dispensary. We proudly opened our doors for delivery in May 2023 and in-store sales in October 2023, establishing ourselves as the first licensed and tax-paying marijuana dispensary in the North Country.
Elevate ADK stands proudly as a beacon of excellence and reliability in cannabis. As a pioneering legal recreational-use dispensary in New York, we are thrilled to introduce you to an extensive range of strains, brands, and products, all locally grown and processed within New York.
Our commitment to exceptional service, a diverse selection of products, and a deep understanding of cannabis ensures that every visit is an opportunity to elevate your experience. Whether you’re seeking relief, relaxation, or recreation, Elevate ADK is here to guide you on your journey through the world of cannabis.
