The Seneca Nation of Indians is the next tribe in the U.S. that will venture into the legalized cannabis industry with plans for a new tribal-owned dispensary. The announcement came from tribe leadership Tuesday morning and will see them establish an area on its sovereign Niagara Territory near downtown Niagara Falls.

The new Nativa Cannabis business is about to get a lot less lonely. The tribe's Seneca Development entity has announced that it will be opening up shop next door from where they are currently operating, in addition to an iconic gas station and convenience store on John Daly Boulevard and Niagara St.

Construction for this 2,500-square-foot building already began earlier this year with plans of a grand opening around February.

The Seneca Nation of Indians is set to become a major player in the cannabis industry with its own operation that will soon be opening. The tribe has been working on this project for months and hopes it can help revitalize both their land as well as their native culture overall by introducing new opportunities such as job creation.

The tribe has also announced plans for a 90,000-square-foot cultivation facility with plans for expansion once sales start coming in.

The tribes new President, Rickey Armstrong Sr. says “Nativa Cannabis will join our other business enterprises, including our Seneca Resorts & Casinos properties, Seneca One Stop locations, and Seneca Gaming & Entertainment operations, in diversifying and strengthening our Seneca economy and generating much-needed revenue to support and fund critical programs and services for the Seneca people,”

With New York State's cannabis market on pace to be the top in the country, The Seneca Nation of Indians become one of the newest members of this ever-growing industry. New York's cannabis market is predicted to do over $2.5 Billion in sales to recreational users in the next five years.

In a move to serve the needs of busy shoppers, Seneca dispensary plans on being open 7 days a week and plans to offer more product options for their customers. They will also have an express window where you can pick up your order at that was placed in advance. Keep an eye out for their grand opening in February.
