The Humboldt Patient Resource Center, a local cannabis dispensary that had been in business for nearly a quarter of a century (mostly in Arcata, briefly in Eureka), posted the following statement on social media on Thursday:

It is with profound sadness that we announce the closure of Humboldt Patient Resource Center Inc. on June 1st, 2023. The untimely and unexpected passing of the owner has presented us with unavoidable challenges concerning our state cannabis license.

For an incredible span of 24 years, we have had the privilege of serving our cherished customers and the community at large. We have strived tirelessly to avoid this unfortunate closure, endeavoring to continue providing the same level of service that has defined our establishment for so many years.

We would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to each and every individual who has been part of the Humboldt Patient Resource Center family. Your unwavering love and support have been the cornerstone of our success. We are profoundly grateful for the trust you have placed in us and the relationships we have cultivated along the way.

While we navigate this difficult period, we ask for your understanding and patience. Our team is dedicated to working diligently to address the challenges we face and explore all possible avenues to continue serving our community. Your support and encouragement during this time mean the world to us.

As we reflect on the memories we have shared and the connections we have forged, we express our deepest gratitude for your loyalty. It is through your support that we have been able to contribute to the well-being of our community for so many years.

Thank you for being an integral part of the Humboldt Patient Resource Center journey. We value your continued support, and though our paths may temporarily diverge, we hope to remain connected in spirit.

Together, we have created something truly special, and for that, we are eternally grateful.

Wishing you all the best, until our paths cross again in the future.

Thank you so much again,

From The HPRC Staff of Cannabis Consultants, Garden & Back of House
