Honolulu, HI (May 23, 2017) – Aloha Green Holdings Inc. (Aloha Green) will open Hawaii’s first retail medical cannabis dispensary on June 8, 2017 on the ground floor of the Interstate Building located at 1314 S. King Street, Honolulu, Hawaii. The dispensary will be open to the general public until lab tested cannabis products are available for purchase. Hawaii’s dispensary licensees are waiting for the State’s Department of Health to certify testing laboratories before qualified patient cannabis sales can commence.
While open to the general public, Aloha Green will carry and sell CBD-only products derived from hemp, and other related products. Hours of operation during the “soft opening” will be 7 days a week, excluding national and state holidays, from 11am to 7pm. Patient consultants and company representatives will be present to provide information on Hawaii’s Medical Marijuana Registry Program, state and federal laws and regulations, Aloha Green as a company, and medical cannabis in general.
“Aloha Green is looking forward to connecting with the local community and providing the public a trusted way of learning more about medical cannabis. We are proud to represent the industry and to showcase the company’s commitment on professionalism, compassion, and safety,” states Tai Cheng, Chief Operating Officer of Aloha Green.
Once testing laboratories can begin product testing and Aloha Green can stock cannabis products, the company plans to limit access to the dispensary to only 329D card carrying patients.
James H.Q. Lee, Chief Executive Officer, adds “This is a historic event for Aloha Green, the State of Hawaii, and individuals everywhere who can benefit from medical cannabis. Our focus remains steadfast on providing qualified patients in Hawaii safe and consistent natural medicine. It continues to drive our efforts to spearhead the industry and reach those who need relief.”
