Our commitment to bringing our patients only the highest quality products means that our purchasing department is working constantly to source the best products as they become available across the state. There are only a handful of the 60 licensed cultivations currently operating and demand for that limited amount of product is incredibly high, so stores may be delayed until enough products are readily available. We plan to open our first store in Blue Springs, MO this winter with our remaining stores in Lake Lotawana, Kearney and Excelsior Springs each opening 1-2 months afterwards.

To address this accurately, we must acknowledge how and why cannabis is priced, and how local as well as regional markets and seasons cause price fluctuations.
Before getting into market demand, we must address the cost of production. Prices can vary widely depending on the cultivation methods used. For example, indoor grows tend to be much more expensive to operate than outdoor and greenhouse grows because of the amount of electricity needed. Cannabis cultivated indoors also tends to fetch a higher price than its outdoor equivalent due to the belief that indoor cultivations allow for selection of superior genetics that produce higher THC content when environmental variables are properly controlled. No matter how a producer chooses to cultivate, they must charge enough to cover the cost of production.
As a response to demand, cannabis prices tend to be higher the closer to the date recreational sales are launched. That’s because the industry in the newly legalized state is typically consists of only a handful of producers who monopolize the market until sufficient competition is established. As the industry matures and more businesses emerge and fortify, supply increases. That makes the industry more competitive, and where competition abounds, prices dip so as to attract customers who now have a variety of options to choose from. Eventually, mature state programs like those in Oregon and Washington produce more cannabis than they can sell. There aren’t enough retail stores to handle the oversupply, and cultivator’s margins are reduced to barely cover the cost of production.
Nevada and California, on the other hand, are still new entries into the recreational market. Nevada has only recently caught up to a shortage problem, and some say that California is well on its way to a shortage of its own. It may be hard to imagine that the Golden State, known for having the nation’s most abundant harvest of cannabis could possibly have an undersupply. The reason isn’t a lack of producers, it’s a lack of legal producers. There are thousands of illegal growers operating out of California—only a very small fraction of those operations have applied or received licenses. If the state enforces its regulations strictly and keeps black market weed out of the legal market there won’t be enough cannabis to supply retail stores pretty soon.
It will likely take a few years before Missouri overcomes these market adjustments to reach a point of stabilization. Prices will fluctuate with the changes in supply and demand and eventually settle into a somewhat normal range as the market matures. The likelihood of recreational legislation passing in the next few years further complicates this as pricing could change drastically with the increased sales volume that a recreational market usually brings.
Medical Marijuana (MMJ), is the use of cannabis and its active compounds such as cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids, to treat a patient’s symptom or condition under the direct recommendation of a physician. People have been using cannabis as medicine for centuries and there are mountains of anecdotal evidence showing that cannabis works to relieve a number of symptoms. Unfortunately, the federal government still maintains that cannabis is a Schedule 1 drug with “no currently accepted medical use”. As a result of the restrictions it has placed upon cannabis production and research, the federal government claims that limited clinical evidence exists to examine the safety and efficacy of using cannabis to treat diseases. Truth be told, there have actually been over 20,000 studies on cannabis, making it one of the most studied plants on earth. A quick search in PubMed shows over 2,400 cannabis studies in 2019 alone. Preliminary evidence suggests that cannabis can reduce nausea and vomiting during chemotherapy, improve appetite in people with HIV/AIDS, reduces chronic pain and muscle spasms and treats severe forms of epilepsy among many other common ailments.
The first direct evidence of cannabis use by humans dates back 2,500 years from traces found in wooden artifacts buried with people who lived along China’s Silk Road. According to an encyclopedic definition found on Wikipedia, Cannabis is indigenous to Central Asia and the Indian subcontinent. Hemp is possibly one of the earliest plants to be cultivated. Cannabis has been cultivated in Japan since the pre-Neolithic period for its fibres and as a food source and possibly as a psychoactive material. An archeological site in the Oki Islands near Japan contained cannabis achenes from about 8000 BC, probably signifying use of the plant. Hemp use archaeologically dates back to the Neolithic Age in China, with hemp fiber imprints found on Yangshao culture pottery dating from the 5th millennium BC. The Chinese later used hemp to make clothes, shoes, ropes, and an early form of Cannabis was an important crop in ancient Korea, with samples of hempen fabric discovered dating back as early as 3000 BCE.
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is one of at least 113 cannabinoids that have been identified and is the principal psychoactive constituent of the cannabis plant. With the chemical name (−)-trans-Δ⁹-tetrahydrocannabinol, the term THC also refers to cannabinoid isomers which are compounds with the same formula but a different arrangement of atoms. Like most pharmacologically active secondary metabolites of plants, THC is a lipid and assumed to be involved in the plant's self-defense against insect predation, ultraviolet light, and environmental stress. THC is responsible for the prominent psychoactive effect, or the “high” associated with cannabis use. Many cannabis consumers seek out only products containing the highest levels of THC in efforts to feel the strongest or most powerful medicinal effects. However, current research suggests that there is much more to the physiological response to cannabis than simply the reaction to THC content of the product. Terpenes, terpenoids, flavinoids and hundreds of other naturally occurring cannabinoids also play an important and still somewhat unknown role in the effectiveness of and feelings associated with a given strain or product.
Terpenes (and terpenoids) are aromatic organic hydrocarbons found in many plants and some insects. Cannabis has naturally high levels of these compounds and gets its powerful aroma from being rich in terpenes. Unfortunately, the processes used to manufacture cannabis products can often reduce the terpene content or strip it away entirely. The re-introduction of extracted terpenes to cannabis products therefore has become a popular method of making a flat, flavorless product like a vape cartridge taste like almost anything imaginable. Skilled producers use this technique to great benefit for the end user, but not all terpene extracts are created equal.
For example, limonene is in the essential oil of lemons and limes, alpha and beta-pinene are found in the essential oil of pine needles. The terpenes in these essential oils contribute to the uplifting effects you experience if you smell the rind of a lemon or walk through a pine forest. Likewise, the terpene linalool predominates the essential oil of lavender, and is known for creating feelings of relaxation and ease. Extracting terpenes from other plant sources such as these is common practice, but most extraction techniques do not completely isolate the targeted terpenes and often contain a myriad of other compounds. The effects of these compounds in conjunction with cannabis is not well known and therefore non-cannabis derived terpenes are generally regarded as undesirable at best for use in a medical marijuana product.
All of these terpenes, and thousands more, are found in high concentrations in the flower of cannabis and can be extracted from and safely reintroduced into cannabis products. Whenever possible, be sure that your medications contain only cannabis derived terpenes.
To get access to medical marijuana in Missouri, first you need a physician certification from a Missouri licensed MD or DO. It’s important to note that not every doctor is willing to recommend medical marijuana for their patients. Most importantly, you must have a condition that qualifies for medical marijuana use. The list of qualifying conditions can be found on the DHSS website as well as a checklist for everything you need to get signed up. Once you have registered and have been approved by DHSS, you will be issued a patient ID card and can legally buy medical marijuana at a licensed medical marijuana dispensary.
Finding a doctor who specializes in cannabis is important for anyone who is looking to get the most out of your cannabis treatment plan. Below are recommended service providers specializing in connecting you with doctors that can help determine if medical marijuana is the right choice for you.
