Eureka, Calif. – Ecological Cannabis Organization, started by co-owners Jeff Poel and Ray Markland, is just an empty room, but next month it will be a medical marijuana dispensary, the first one in Eureka.
The dispensary will sell a variety of cannabis products and merchandise including local glassware. However, Poel and Markland have put a lot of emphasis on living up to their name.
“We’re going to focus on sun grown cannabis because we’re you know ‘Eco-Cann’ we’re trying to do it ecologically,” Poel Said.
Poel said that they will be using both local and non-local vendors for the products they will sell, but they have a plan to ensure all their products are eco-friendly.
“We have an agreement with all of our producers that are going to do things sustainably and legally.” Poel said. “And I plan on having an employee or myself go to every single one of our producer and look at it and inspect it.”
