Department of Health Approves Maui Wellness Group, LLC as Medical Cannabis Retail Dispensary

News Release from Hawaii DoH, Nov 13, 2023

KĪHEI – The Hawai‘i State Department of Health (DOH) has issued a formal notice to proceed for Maui Wellness Group, LLC, dba Maui Grown Therapies after it passed its final on-site inspection for its fourth retail facility. Maui Grown Therapies’ new retail site is located at 1215 South Kīhei Road D-2 in Kīhei, and the company expects to begin sales on Friday, November 17, 2023.

Maui Grown Therapies’ Kīhei location will be Maui’s eighth retail dispensary (counting the location destroyed in Lahaina by the August 8 wildfires) and the twenty–fifth retail dispensary for the state. As of October 31, 2023, a total of 30,852 in-state patients and 2,682 caregivers were registered statewide, including 5,302 patients and 465 caregivers on Maui. The primary reported condition for registered adult patients is severe pain. The primary reported conditions for patients under 18 are seizures and post-traumatic stress disorder. “Maui Grown Therapies’ new dispensary will provide much-needed access to patients on Maui, especially as its Lahaina dispensary was destroyed in the Lahaina wildfires,” said DOH Dispensary Licensing Supervisor Liam Gimon.
