First Medical Dispensary in Kansas City Area Opens
It has been a long road, but nearly two years after voters approved medical cannabis in the State of Missouri, the first dispensary in the Kansas City area is now open! Fresh Green Dispensary in Lee's Summit opened on Monday, October 19th. This is only the first of two locations Fresh Green Dispensaries, which is owned by area residents Bianca and Rob Sullivan, that will be opening in the Kansas City area, with the other location opening in Waldo in Kansas City in the future. But it was a special day for Hari Om Hemp and Hari Om Holistic Healing CEO and Founder Leigh Carr, who worked as a nurse for many years and now is a nurse consultant in the cannabis industry. Today was the first day she was able to walk into a dispensary and help work with patients for the first time in a dispensary in the Kansas City metro area get the help they were seeking.
Here is a report from local TV news KCTV5 in Kansas City. It includes interviews of Fresh Green founds, nurse consultant Leigh Carr and of course the very first patient to purchase medical cannabis in the KC metro.
The grand opening certainly was a spectacle as all the local news channels and other media were on hand for this historic event. As cool as all the publicity and the giant spot light was, the biggest or most important thing about the day was the fact that hundreds of patients were able to come into Fresh Green, who may suffer from many various issues and ailments, was able to get their medicine that may be able to give them some form of relief and a better quality of life.
The day was full of excitement and Leigh consulted and talked too many patients, many of whom waited hours in line to celebrate the ability to now purchase medical marijuana in Missouri. Leigh helped educate patients on specific strains that may help their conditions best, as well as ways to consume that may be best for them individually and dosing strategies to help ensure patients have the most effective experience possible at relieving their ailments.
