The Department of Health approved a fourth location for Maui Grown Therapies in Kihei, according to a news release sent Monday.
The new medical cannabis dispensary will be Maui’s seventh — this count does not include an eighth dispensary that was destroyed in Lahaina during the Aug. 8 wildfires.
Maui Wellness Group will operate the new dispensary, which will be at 1215 South Kihei Road D-2 in Kihei. The company expects to begin sales Friday.
As of Oct. 31, 2023, 30,852 in-state patients and 2,682 caregivers were registered in Hawaii, including 5,302 patients and 465 caregivers on Maui.
The most often reported condition for registered adult patients is severe pain. For patients under 18, the primary reported conditions are seizures and post-traumatic stress disorder.
“Maui Grown Therapies’ new dispensary will provide much-needed access to patients on Maui, especially as its Lahaina dispensary was destroyed,” said DOH Dispensary Licensing Supervisor Liam Gimon.
