Hi, it’s Kevin Menard, the founder of Dragon Hemp. 

As we celebrate the season of gratitude, I wanted to share some heartwarming stories of wellness from our Dragon Hemp community. 

These aren’t just testimonials; they’re real experiences that remind us why we do what we do.

Miraculous Relief.

Constance’s story with our Cooling Balm is nothing short of inspiring. 

After a painful sprain, she found not just relief but a pain-free awakening, something we all hope for after an injury. 

Stories like hers make us grateful for the little things in life that bring us comfort, whether in recovery or simply striving for everyday wellness.

A Better Night's Sleep.

Sleep, often taken for granted, can be a distant dream for many. 

Jeff’s journey with our Sleep Tincture, overcoming chronic nerve pain and restless nights, reminds us of the blessing of a good night’s sleep. 

Like Jeff, many in our community have found solace in our products, and it’s a privilege to be a part of their journey to better rest--an essential component to overall wellness.

Shared Moments of Leisure.

Our Leisure Gummies have not just been about relaxation but about creating moments of joy--critical for everyday wellness. 

Jasper’s first experience with them led to a great night’s sleep, and Angus’s beach day fun shows us how our products can be part of small and significant life moments.

Wellness is not just about addressing health issues, it's about enhancing you overall sense of self, from enhancing your mood to authentically celebrating all of life's moments.

In this season of thankfulness, we’re reminded that the greatest gift we can offer is one that improves the lives of those we care about. 

We’re so grateful to have you in our Dragon Hemp family and hope our products continue to provide comfort and joy on your wellness journey. 

Thank you for your trust and for sharing stories of your wellness journeys with us. They’re what keep us inspired every day.

Wishing you a season filled with warmth, gratitude, and wellness.

Our Founder.

Our Apothecary.

Our Apothecary in Sag Harbor, New York was conceived as a beacon of rejuvenation and wellness in the Hamptons. Much more than a dispensary, at the core of the Dragon Hemp Apothecary is a commitment to education and understanding the benefits of time-honored herbal remedies synthesized with today’s advancements in cannabinoid research. 

Offering an array of products designed to align with the wellness needs of the Hamptons community, the store seeks to bridge the gap between ancient wisdom and modern applications, making herbal medicine more compatible with our lifestyles today. Our unique apothecary in Sag Harbor not only represents a physical space but also embodies Dragon Hemp's ethos of premium, all-natural, effective wellness solutions, drawing from the rich heritage of the Hamptons and the innovative spirit of New York.

Not your conventional dispensary, our first-of-its-kind retail location, harmoniously balances tradition and innovation with an emphasis on experience and education. We invite you to step inside and let our herbal experts guide you on an exploration of the rejuvenating power of cannabinoids and traditional herbs in a setting that feels both timeless and contemporary.

Designed in collaboration with renowned Alfredo Paredes Studio, the apothecary embodies a sophisticated fusion of old-world tradition and contemporary wellness practicies. Known for his 33-year tenure as Ralph Lauren Executive Vice President and Chief Creative Officer, Alfredo Paredes, a master of crafting memorable retail experiences, helped transform the space into a shining gem of Sag Harbor. Reflecting the premium, natural, and therapeutic essence of Dragon Hemp, every aspect of the store, including the unique furniture pieces from Paredes' line, contributes to an ambiance of refined tranquility and wellness. The design echoes a classic herbal pharmacy blended with a modern aesthetic, mirroring our brand ethos of contemporizing ancient herbal medicine for today’s applications.

Standing out on Main Street in Sag Harbor with the glow of our distinctive neon sign, our unique retail store has become a design destination of its own -- beyond just wellness -- in one of the Hamptons’ most popular villages. Whether you’re looking for potent natural therapeutics to tackle pain & inflammation or legal THC products to enhance mood or improve sleep, our apothecary is your safe haven at 108 Main Street.

Our Ingredients.

We carefully select our organically grown ingredients, emphasizing sustainability to protect Earth's biodiversity. 

We believe in transparency in all our processes, from ingredient selection to the methods used by our CBD farmers, who lead the sustainable agriculture charge and concentrate on ecosystem restoration and carbon sequestration.

We're not just about wellness products but about nurturing an understanding of traditional herbal practices and helping people make healthy decisions. 

With respect, we introduce newcomers to the benefits of both age old herbal wisdom and contemporary wellness practices. 

Our aim is a future where  well-being stems from nature, combining timeless knowledge with today's research.

Our Products.

Our products are formulated to serve the four crucial daily needs most often seen in Kevin’s practice—Essential Wellbeing for comprehensive health, Rest & Restoration to foster rejuvenation, Aches & Pains for relief from discomfort, and Liniments for body care that enhances both physical and emotional wellbeing.

Available in four versatile forms—swift-absorbing tinctures, targeted balms, discreet gummies, and moisturizers—we ensure a suitable choice for every lifestyle and wellness routine.
