Humboldt Traders is a company founded by Brett Watson in Arcata, California. We are locally owned and operated and we specialize in selling products made in the USA, specifically, Humboldt County. We’ve been in business for over 7 years and we take great pride in providing outstanding quality and customer service to our customers.

Our main focus is producing Humboldt Hemp Wick®, our most popular product. The story goes that while experimenting with candle making during the early 2000’s, we came across the idea of using hemp fiber to provide the wicking properties necessary for a more organic flame. We soon discovered hemp wick was also a fantastic addition to our medicinal herbs! After a lot of experimentation and positive feedback from the smoking community, we became more serious about the wick and we now sell Humboldt Hemp Wick® all over the world. We also provide locally made hemp wick dispensers by Per Glass.

Our products can be found here on our website, as well as on Amazon, eBay, Etsy, and your local smoke shop. If your local shop has not stocked our product yet, just let them know you’d like them to add us to their inventory 🙂

Please always feel free to contact us with any questions you might have regarding any of our products!


Thanks so much for your support,

Brett Watson and the Humboldt Traders Team
