The Rise of Medical Dispensaries in Fayetteville, Arkansas
Marijuana consultant Michael Mayes is featured in the Fayetteville Flyer to discuss the status of medical dispensaries in Fayetteville, Arkansas. As the founder and CEO of the cannabis consulting firm Quantum 9, Mayes is the spokesperson and industry consultant for the Acanza Health Group facility.
At this time, only two of the 32 licensed medical dispensary locations are open for business in Arkansas. Therefore, Mayes, the team at Quantum 9, and the Acanza Health Group are working together toward opening additional facilities.
With that said, the dispensary plans to open sometime this fall, with the possibility of opening late summer. In this time frame, the teams will prioritize product quality, security, and preparation.
“We want to give our patients the most comprehensive selection possible” -Marijuana Consultant, Michael Mayes
The teams ensure the prioritization of products that help treat ‘chronic pain and reduction of opioid withdrawal symptoms’. Moreover, the location will “disperse, cultivate, and process product on-site”. With this, medical dispensaries in Arkansas will offer a wide variety of flower and derivative products to further cater to patients with other various conditions.
Additionally, Mayes and Acanza based the Fayetteville location on its high volume of surrounding patient population. Directly off of the I-49 highway, the site is easily accessible to over 2,000 patients within a five-mile radius.
Mayes recognizes the potential of diversion and/or theft of patients’ personal information and overall product. Considering this, Mayes and the team at Quantum 9 continue to provide cannabis consulting that delivers “the most comprehensive security system in the market”. To guarantee overall safety and security, Mayes states how it is necessary for security cameras to cover the entire dispensary.
Finally, as Quantum 9 and the Acanza Health Group work hard to increase access to medicinal marijuana, the rise of medical dispensaries in Arkansas continues.
