Discovering the Next Best Brands

Amherst Brands is a supplier of breakout alternative brands, primarily originating from California. We're a team of industry experts and brand advisors that supply independent retailers with a unique selection of products in the hemp, herbal and pseudo-psychedelic categories.


Our Story

Co-founders, Pat Bauer and Ben Grabow, started Amherst Brands from humble beginnings in a small garage in Southern California back in 2018. Sebastien Siegels, now a Partner, joined the duo early on in Garagetopia and made it rain. Then there's Steve (also known as Sven to some) Bauer, our office dog, a rescue hailing from Bakersfield, California. He is a American Staffordshire Terrier/American Bulldog Mix. He is without a doubt the biggest asset to our group. Since the days of the garage, we've grown to partnering with 1000+ retail locations across 43 states to share a portfolio of curated brands that go above and beyond to create efficacious products with retail centricity at the core of everything they do.
