Our Story

Our mission to bring a top tier experience, along with high-quality cannabis products to the Washington Cannabis retail space began to take form in 2018. While New Vansterdam first opened its doors in July of 2014 as one of the first recreational cannabis dispensaries in Washington State, the new owners decided that there needed to be change in the company to accommodate an ever growing and dynamic industry. A full remodel of the shop began while still maintaining the iconic vibe that New Vansterdam had already established. The remodel was designed to bring a more classy, modern feel to cannabis retail, merged with New Vansterdam’s classic Pacific Northwest landscape. The remodel included expanding the sales floor to bring more variety to customers in the Vancouver-Portland metro area, installing a large humidor intended to keep product fresh, purchasing a large selection of glass and paraphernalia, hiring educated sales staff, and an overall high-quality selection of product. The owners envisioned expanding outside of the Southwest Washington market, thus Craft Cannabis was created. 

In April of 2019, the purchase of the first dispensary in Wenatchee was completed and a full remodel began. The new shop emulated the same look and feel that had been cultivated at New Vansterdam, however the owners decided to rebrand this store as Craft Cannabis. Craft Cannabis in Wenatchee quickly became the number one store in the area, delivering a classy retail experience paired with the largest selection that had ever been seen in the Wenatchee area. 

Plans to expand Craft Cannabis continued Fall of 2020 when the purchase of a small shop in Vancouver, WA had been completed. Plans to build out a new retail building on Andresen right off Padden Parkway began to take shape. While the main retail building on this location is under construction, the store will be operating out of a temporary building on the location site.
