The state’s newest medical cannabis facility is now open in Kansas City.
Cannabis inc manufacturers small-batch marijuana edibles for patients with food sensitivities and dietary restrictions as well as solvent-free concentrates, one of 48 such facilities now approved to operate in Missouri. Its products can be found in retail outlets across the K.C. metro area and beyond.
Owner Justin Callaghan was inspired to start the business after watching his grandmother suffer from cancer a decade ago — before the state’s medical marijuana program was approved by 66% of Missouri voters in November 2018.
More than 150,000 Missouri patients and caregivers have been approved as medical marijuana cardholders by the state Department of Health and Senior Services, along with over 5,400 medical cannabis workers. Medical cannabis sales in Missouri include an additional 4% sales tax, with the proceeds dedicated toward veterans’ health and care services.
The department has licensed 349 facilities across the state to cultivate, manufacture, test and dispense medical marijuana safely to Missouri patients. The medical marijuana program has already generated more than $136 million in tax revenue to the state of Missouri through September.
