Medical marijuana growers in Arkansas are planning to have cannabis products available for approved patients by spring of 2019. The state’s five licensed cannabis cultivators reported their progress at a meeting of the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission on Wednesday.
Bold Team LLC of Woodruff County and Natural State Medicinals in Jefferson County told the commission that they should have product available by April. Osage Creek Cultivation LLC in Carroll County and Natural State Wellness Enterprises in Jefferson County both report that they hope to deliver product by the summer.
Cultivator Seeks New Location
Delta Medical Cannabis Company Inc. of Jackson County also reported it could deliver cannabis products by the summer if the company is able to solve problems with the location of its facility. The company is hoping to move from its current site near Arkansas State University Newport to a new one about a mile away. An unsuccessful applicant for a cultivation license is challenging Delta’s selection, asserting that the company’s location violates regulations prohibiting cannabis companies from locating near schools. The applicant’s protest comes despite a commission ruling that a college or university does not qualify as a school under the medical marijuana statute.
