ALTUS, OK (RNN Texoma) - A medical marijuana dispensary in Altus is celebrating their opening and is selling product.
Kiowa Wellness Center held an official grand opening Saturday at their location on N. Main St. in Altus.
State Question 788 went into effect July 26th after the state’s medical marijuana program was approved by voters. And just two days later Buddy Wood, owner of Kiowa Wellness Center, says he began the process of opening the store.
“We started on June 28th, going forward with the CBD store and everything," said Wood. "We went through forming a company, getting our license, and now we have a store. It’s open and we have product on the shelves to sell.”
Wood says the Kiowa Wellness Center currently has eight different medical marijuana varieties in stock.
“What we’re after here is to try to match our individual plants that we have to the customer to help them feel better,” said Wood.
At capacity, Wood hopes to have as many as 18 different varieties in stock, but he says it’ll be some time in early spring before they get to that point.
In addition to medical marijuana, the store also carries a complete line of CBD health and wellness products.
