Nestled in downtown Newport Rhode island is a cozy beach-themed shop. At first glance, it holds your typical sea-town souvenirs; shirts, candles, postcards and some other miscellaneous items. But, when you look around, you’ll find what many customers are there for: the cannabis.
Rhode Island Reef grows their own cannabis on local farms “located on the original ‘Rhode Island.’ ” Their formula consists of a high concentration of CBD, minor cannabinoids, 30+ terpenes, flavonoids, antioxidants and fatty acids that creates their most effective THC-free formula available.
“Our name is inspired by the symbiotic relationships that exist in a coral reef, where individual organisms work together for the success of the greater whole. Rhode Island Reef aims to bring this idea to life – helping our neighbors, bringing people together, and building better lives through natural, effective medicine.”
After legalizing recreational cannabis in May of 2022, Rhode Island Reef shifted from being a medical dispensary to having a number of recreational products. They offer a selection of edibles with CBD and THC, pre-rolls, as well as CBD for dogs.
Their owner, Nishan Han, wants to bring safe, accessible and affordable CBD products for the community in New Port.
This writer tried one of their pre-rolls, which had below a 0.3% Delta9-THC count, and thoroughly enjoyed them! Compared to a number of pre-rolls this writer has had in the past, this one had a very clean pull and sustained a comfortable high.
