Paper & Leaf Hemp Company in the New Hartford Shopping Center is seeking to become a full marijuana dispensary as soon as it is possible, according to the recreational marijuana law passed in Albany in March.
The company, owned by Shane Carter and Dave Keller, launched May 28, with a grand opening attended by the New Hartford Chamber of Commerce on July 10.
Paper & Leaf originally started out with liquids and CBD products. Now, the store also sells Delta 8 and Delta 10 cannabis products — scientific labels for the type of cannabis sold.
Currently, Delta 8 and Delta 10 compounds can be sold and used recreationally in New York.
Delta 9 is the main compound in cannabis that gets people high, and Paper & Leaf is planning to sell Delta 9 once it becomes legal to do so.
