Established in 2021, in Bellingham Washington, we are a small team of dedicated and tightknit individuals who share a passion for cannabis, the art of cultivation, and each other.

Our founder Nick is also our head grower, and he takes great pride in nurturing our plants to perfection. He hand-waters the plants and personally oversees every aspect of the growing process from planting new seeds and phenohunting exclusive flavors in-house to drying, curing, and curating our selection of world class genetics. This hands-on approach ensures that we provide you with products that are unlike anything else in the market.

At Honeydew, we believe that cannabis should be more than just a commodity; it should be an experience. That’s why we focus on developing strains that offer unique smells, flavors, and feelings. From our classic strains to our innovative unique and new hybrids, each of our products is designed to take you on a journey of the senses.

We know that you have many choices when it comes to cannabis, but we are confident that you will love the Honeydew difference. So why not give us a try and see for yourself? We can’t wait to share our passion with you.
