Verano, a leading multi-state cannabis company, today announced it was awarded seven dispensary licenses in West Virginia, adding to its previous awards for one cultivation license as well as one processing license. In all, Verano now holds nine licenses in the state.
“We are very grateful to receive seven dispensary licenses in West Virginia,” said George Archos, Verano Founder and CEO. “This marks a significant milestone for Verano. In combination with the medical cultivation and processing permits awarded to us last year, the new dispensary licenses provide us an excellent opportunity to establish a vertically integrated operation in West Virginia. And, with that, a commitment to providing a superior, patient-focused experience to the communities therein, including the development of our full suite of Verano products, as well as retail environments that promote wellness and comfort for our patients.”
Approximately 40 businesses applied for ten available grower licenses provided by the West Virginia Office of Medical Cannabis.
