The recreational marijuana market has been off to an infamously slow start since New York State legalized cannabis for adults three years ago, but there are a few options on Long Island.

While the state has licensed three dozen dispensaries to open in Nassau and Suffolk counties, most brick-and-mortar establishments are still seeking a location to set up shop. But several others located elsewhere have been authorized to deliver to customers on the Island.

Here is a guide to LI’s legal cannabis dispensaries. 

The first cannabis dispensary to open on Long Island debuted in July of 2023. It boasts a wide range of options, from pre-rolls to concentrates, tailored to their individual preferences and needs. 1815 Broadhollow Rd., Farmingdale, 631-390-9444, strainstarsny.com

The second cannabis dispensary on Long Island opened in December and is similarly centrally located with a hearty list of menu options. 105 Route 109, Farmingdale, 516-888-1505, happydaysli.com

The first cannabis dispensary on the East End opened in November on the Shinnecock Nation territory, which means it is exempt from the state licensing regulations, but it also offers a wide array of flower, edibles and other menu items. 56 Montauk Hwy., Southampton, 631-251-3030, littlebeachharvest.com

Technically in northeastern Queens, this cannabis dispensary right over the northwestern Nassau County line says it draws some of its customers from Long Island. 221-50 Horace Harding Expy., Bayside, 347-0235-4210, newmetro.club

This cannabis dispensary is located in Albany but has been approved to deliver cannabis products to customers’ homes on Long Island for those who place an order. legacy-dispensary.com
