‘Click & Go’ medical cannabis available in Lahaina
LAHAINA — Maui Grown Therapies announced the opening of Maui Grown Express Lahaina, the state’s first “Click & Go” fulfillment center available to registered medical cannabis patients ordering online at MauiGrown.com.
Located at 1087 Limahana St. in Lahaina behind Taco Bell/Pizza Hut and next to the Choice Health Bar, the Express dispensary began accommodating patients by appointment only starting on Wednesday, March 17.
“West Maui patients can now avoid traveling through the tunnel to retrieve their orders in Kahului,” said Dr. Gregory Park, co-founder and chief compliance officer of Maui Grown.
“Our ‘Click and Go’ Lahaina dispensary is designed to quickly and safely serve up to two patients at a time by appointment.”
The State of Hawaii was one of the first states to legalize medical cannabis by statute in 2000.
In 2015, the legislature established criteria for the Department of Health to select and regulate medical cannabis dispensary licensees.
In 2016, Maui Grown Therapies earned the top score among 66 applicants for eight dispensary licenses statewide.
In August 2017, Maui Grown Therapies became the first dispensary in Hawaii to serve medical cannabis patients at its flagship store in Kahului.
Since then, over 5,000 patients have visited the Maui Grown Therapies dispensary at 44 Pa’a St. in Maui Lani Village Center.
Keeping to the mission of education, compassion and safe access, Maui Grown Therapies produces a live online educational series called Maui Grown Mana’o.
Each episode allows for viewers to interact and ask questions with the presenter. Recent episodes include Dr. Andrew Weil, chief science officer of Maui Grown’s Science and Medical Advisory Board; and Dr. Donald Abrams, integrative oncologist at the UCSF Osher Center for Integrative Medicine.
In June, Maui Grown’s Educational Advisor and author Michael Backes will discuss cannabis and pain management.
