Jefferson City, MO – Missouri Health & Wellness (MH&W), a medical marijuana company licensed to operate five dispensaries in the state, announced today that their Sedalia dispensary was recently approved by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) to operate in Missouri. This is the second location for MH&W to gain approval to operate. With this approval, MH&W plans to open to the public as soon as medical marijuana becomes available by Missouri-licensed cultivators. MH&W also owns and operates dispensaries in Belton, Kirksville, and Jefferson City.
“We’ve had a lot of support from the community and people have been calling and stopping by asking when we’re going to open. We’re happy to say that we’re ready to serve patients in Sedalia and surrounding communities as soon as product is available,” said Randy Stambaugh, MH&W’s statewide manager. Stambaugh said MH&W plans to have medical marijuana available for sale by early winter but hopes it might be sooner. He praised the local community for being supportive throughout the process.
MH&W’s ownership team combines professionals in the banking, legal, accounting, law enforcement, medical marijuana, and healthcare fields. Kathleen Beebe, MH&W’s regional manager, has begun conducting interviews and stated that, “It’s important to MH&W to focus on diversity and hiring local people. We want to make a positive difference in the communities we serve.”
The company’s ownership team includes several doctors and a clinical pharmacist who have studied marijuana and are looking forward to helping MH&W provide the people of Pettis and surrounding counties a safe alternative to opioids. The owners, who are predominately from Missouri, have seen firsthand the transformative ability of medical marijuana to greatly enhance the quality of life for patients by providing pain relief, reducing inflammation, increasing sleep and more. MH&W’s ownership team looks forward to providing safe access to medical marijuana and becoming an integral part of the Sedalia community.
MH&W has teamed up with Midwest Cannabinoid Clinics (MCC) to assist patients in obtaining their medical marijuana cards from the DHSS. MCC is a Missouri-operated clinic that provides secure and affordable telemedicine appointments for patients seeking a medical marijuana card and for those interested in learning more about cannabinoid products. Anyone interested in obtaining a Missouri medical marijuana patient card can go to MH&W’s website at www.mhwdispensaries.com under the Patient Cards tab at the top and sign up for a consultation with MCC .
