Brooklyn’s First Black and Woman-Own Marijuana Dispensary

If you thought Brooklyn was a bit behind the curve for legal weed, one visit to a new dispensary in Park Slope shows that’s not quite the case. This month, Leeann Mata opened the borough’s first Black- and woman-owned dispensary in a former Chase bank branch at 14th Street and Fifth Avenue. She’s among the “justice-impacted” people the state is prioritizing in terms of licensing, and her shop’s color palette — from the rainbow graffiti on the walls to the pre-rolled joints for $20 labeled ZKITTLES — gives a nod to the colorful aesthetic of New York hip-hop.

Brooklyn’s Finest Cannabis Selection: Explore Our Dispensary

As a business founded by a BIPOC, Gifted BK is more than just a recreational marijuana dispensary: Over half of the shop’s profits are directed to programs for transitional and permanent housing, employment and more for those impacted by the justice system. The staff is well trained and happy to help you select a product based on your needs, whether it’s flower, vapes or concentrates.

Good Grades originally debuted in Queens by Jamaica Center a few months ago, but the new Brooklyn destination is open now through December. The shop’s products are arranged around a central open-floor area designed to resemble the commons areas that define college campuses, and its budtenders (who all have 40+ hours of training) are always ready to answer your questions. Medical card holders can shop for edibles, vaporizers, oils and more, but anyone can come to the dispensary for advice on what to choose — and no medical marijuana ID is required.
