Maui Wellness Group, doing business as Maui Grown Therapies, announced Wednesday its first dispensary location in the Maui Lani Village Center at 44 Paa Street in Kahului.
The company, led by former Maui Land & Pineapple Co. CEO David Cole, expects to sell cannabis and related products about 112 days after it receives approval by the state Health Department to begin cultivation.
The contractor — one of eight dispensary licensees — is planning a series of open houses and educational events in the 2,112-square-foot dispensary starting in February.
Act 241, passed in 2015, allowed the state to issue eight licenses for a total of 16 production centers and 16 dispensaries statewide. The law allowed dispensaries to open July 15, but the state and licensees weren’t ready.
