Washington, MO – Missouri Health & Wellness (MH&W), a medical cannabis company licensed to operate five dispensaries in the state, announced today that its Washington location will be open for business on November 30th. The Washington location is one of five dispensaries operated by MH&W and was one of the first approved by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) to operate in the state. MH&W also owns and operates dispensaries in Belton, Kirksville, Jefferson City and Sedalia.

“This has been a long time coming and we are excited to finally bring medical cannabis to Washington, Franklin County and the surrounding areas,” said Randy Stambaugh, MH&W’s statewide manager. “I can’t say enough about the support we have received from the City of Washington, the business community and the residents.”

MH&W’s dispensary in Washington will have a variety of flower strains available upon opening. Later this winter, the dispensary will have a complete line of products as the supply becomes more available.

MH&W is making customer service and safety cornerstones of its business, said Regional Manager Kathleen Beebe. “We have hired staff who have all gone through an extensive training program to better serve our patients,” she emphasized. MH&W has also implemented expanded cleaning, social distancing, mandatory mask wearing, and pre-ordering online for pick-up at all of its dispensaries.

“We have made it our mission to provide Missourians with the most insightful information and education about the health benefits of medical cannabis,” Beebe said, noting that MH&W has created an official Missouri Patient Guide to Medical Marijuana available on its website. Customers coming to the dispensary will also get one-on-one attention from MH&W Wellness Specialists, who have extensive knowledge about the various strains of cannabis and their proper use for specific medical conditions. Patients seeking a Missouri cannabis medical card can visit the website to register for a consultation with Midwest Cannabinoid Clinics (MCC) who has partnered with MH&W. Hours may vary so check the website for updated hours prior to visiting the dispensary, www.mhwdispensaries.com.
