(BIVN) – Two days after the State Department of Health announced its approval, Big Island Grown Dispensaries is holding a grand opening at its new retail location in Waimea, at the Malama Pono Center at 64-1040 Mamalahoa Highway.
It is the first dispensary location to open in Waimea and the second on the entire island. The first opened in Hilo in January.
“We are opening this satellite location in Waimea to provide easier access to medicine for our patients on the north part of the island.” said Dylan Shropshire, Chief Executive Officer, in a media release. “One of our main services at this location, will be to fulfill online pre-orders. Patients can place orders via our website and will receive a text message when orders are ready for pick up in the store.”
According to the company:
This opening weekend, the Waimea location will offer several different flower strains, topicals and rosin flower extract. We have also expanded our “mix and match” program to include quarters, half ounces, and ounces, which will allow patients to sample new strains at the most affordable price by picking up to multiple strains within each weight category for the weight discounted pricing. Our goal is to always provide patients with the best possible in store experience.” said Shropshire.
Both the Hilo and Waimea location will be open 7 days a week, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sundays.
Big Island Grown says it is working diligently with the County and State to open their final location in the Brewers Block in Kona.
All patients and caregivers will be required to show a valid government ID and valid 329 card to gain entry. “Our focus is on providing the highest quality cannabis medicine patients can depend on, and healthcare providers can have confidence in their patients consuming,” a Big Island Grown media release stated. “We are absolutely dedicated to providing an exceptional patient experience.”
