In early February, the West Virginia Office of Medical Cannabis (OMC) announced the successful applicants to receive a medical cannabis dispensary permit.
The OMC posted the full list of dispensary permit holders on its website, which consisted of Ohio-based medical cannabis dispensary Terrasana Cannabis Co. and West Virginia-based medical cannabis dispensary Harvest Care Medical.
Terrasana applied to receive six dispensary permits at the beginning of this year and was awarded all six. The dispensary business was also granted a cultivation and processing license, said William Kedia, Terrasana Cannabis founder and CEO.
Both dispensaries are making changes and finalizing a game plan in preparation for the expansion.
“The hiring process will not start until we start construction, just because of the timeline,” Kedia said. “I don’t want people waiting on us to do the project for three to five months until it’s finalized. So, as we get to those time points in our game plan, we will hire appropriately and train everyone so everyone is on the same page and ready to go the minute we get the dispensaries, growing and processing facilities all open at the same time.”
