Check your stash! Dates for drug checking clinics in 2022

Check your stash! Dates for drug checking clinics in 2022

Posted by Chris Fowlie on 24th Aug 2022

The Hemp Store is hosting pop-up Drug Checking Clinics every month for the rest of 2022.

These will be the First Thursday of every month, with the exception of September which will be on the second Thursday. 

The dates and times are:

  • Thursday 8 September 2-6pm
  • Thursday 6 October 3-7pm (as part of First Thursday on K Road) 
  • Thursday 3 November 3-7pm (as part of First Thursday on K Road)
  • Thursday 1 December 3-7pm (as part of First Thursday on K Road) 


The clinics are provided by our friends at the NZ Drug Foundation. 
They are free, legal and confidential. There is also a protection built into the law forbidding police from using results or attendance to prosecute or search anyone.

With dodgy stuff like Fentanyl circulating in illicit drugs, it's important to know what you are taking. The service can test not only powders, pills and mystery crystals, but also your weed, edibles, balms, green fairy tinctures, and legally prescribed medicinal cannabis products.

The service uses our Dancesafe reagents as the first step, then the FTIR spectrometer, then samples can also be sent off for a full lab analysis. Know what you are taking, and with accurate information about the strength you can work out your correct dosage.

Aotearoa New Zealand is one of the few countries in the world to allow legal substance checking.

As with every First Thursday, The Hemp Store will be open late.
