FAQ

embarc

Embarc is a modern cannabis retailer dedicated to community, culture, and education. 

We thoughtfully curate products throughout the State to meet the needs of all consumer types, price points, and desired effects. We dedicate 50% of our shelf space to promote inclusion and diversity within the industry, never compromise on quality, and always carry brands that share similar values.

Our bodega-like shopping experience provides a familiar way for you to freely explore  our locally-sourced product selection (not behind a glass counter). To us, learning about and shopping for cannabis should be approachable, and that’s our mission in everything we do.

Whether you’re a long time consumer or just starting your journey, our friendly Guides are here to help you navigate the world of cannabis and find products that are right for you.

With 1% of all sales donated back to the community, when you shop at Embarc you’re directly supporting the community you call home.

WE KEEP IT LOCAL

1% of sales goes to the community.

We focus significant volunteerism and financial support to organizations and causes within the communities we call home. This ensures the communities supporting Embarc are benefitting most. Embarc donates 1% of all sales in perpetuity to a local Community Investment Fund. This fund is directed by our Community Advisory Board – a group of local residents and community leaders that ensure we’re focused on meeting the community’s needs.

When you shop at Embarc your purchase directly benefits the community you call home.

Guest Book

Operating our business is a privilege, not a right.

For far too long, inequitable enforcement of drug policies has marginalized and disenfranchised low-income communities and people of color. We recognize that it is a privilege to operate a business in this industry and are committed to continuously seeking ways to recognize and address the impacts the failed War on Drugs has had on our communities.

We partner with community organizations and leaders that seek to bridge a failed past with a better and more equitable future.

Our Values

We keep it local.

We strive to hire 100% locally and dedicate significant volunteerism and financial support to organizations and causes within the communities we call home.

Equity.

We are committed to ensuring the cannabis ecosystem remains open and diverse. We prioritize shelf space for BIPOC, female, social equity, LGBTQIA+ and small and locally farmed brands, leveraging our platform to amplify their voices with consumers.

Create access for all.

Cannabis is not a luxury or a premium product; it is a tool to enhance life and enrich experiences. We strive to be approachable for all by respecting and valuing people of all backgrounds and by providing an experience that is accessible no matter who you are, where you are from, or how experienced you are with cannabis.
