NORWOOD, Massachusetts, September 12, 2022 – PRESS RELEASE – MariMed, Inc., a multi-state cannabis operator, announced an agreement that will bring the company’s portfolio of cannabis-infused edibles to Missouri. As part of the agreement, MariMed will develop and manage a state-of-the-art production kitchen. MariMed anticipates completion of the facility in the first quarter of 2023, with wholesale sales to commence thereafter.
“I am delighted to announce our management contract in the state of Missouri that will facilitate the distribution of our products in this emerging cannabis market,” said Bob Fireman, CEO of MariMed. “Expanding our operations to increase distribution of our award-winning brands aligns with our strategic growth plan and delivers on another shareholder commitment.
