Located at the entrance to the Emerald Triangle, Emerald Pharms is something special in the world of cannabis providers. Nestled on the 12-acre “permaculture oasis”, with Real Goods and the Solar Living Center, we became the world’s first all-solar powered medical cannabis dispensary when we opened our doors in 2015. Our store is open to anyone 21 years and up (with valid ID) or to those 18+ with a medical recommendation. We also provide educational information for those exploring the grounds who are curious to learn more about the land and what we do.Emerald Pharms is a one-stop resource for herbal medication, education, and relaxation. The ambiance within our store welcomes visitors with local art and relaxing decor. We specialize in locally grown, full spectrum CBD-rich and THC dominant cannabis products in various modes of administration.HERBAL EDUCATIONWe believe that cannabis is a key part of a deeper understanding of the unlimited healing potential of the plant kingdom. We specialize in holistic health practices that integrate other plant medicines, massage and energy therapy, and medicinal mushroom synergies.
