Led by a management team with extensive retail operating experience, we will be applying for 2 dispensary licenses in Missouri, located in District 1 and District 8
Missouri’s medical cannabis program finalized its regulations and is set to accept dispensary applications starting August 3rd and launch for patients in 2020

Flexible qualifying conditions are allowing for a patient pool and market size that is projected to reach $480M/year, larger than Colorado’s medical market

Locally focused – Regulations have been set to ensure cannabis businesses are owned by Missouri residents and are community focused, creating a barrier to entry against MSO’s

Late mover – Missouri is the 33rd state to legalize medical cannabis, allowing it to learn from other states and build a community-focused, transparent program
