A Maplewood business owner hopes to become a medical marijuana dispensary when it becomes possible, KSDK has reported. Voters approved the sale of medical marijuana in November.
Kelly Christensen has been in business about a year selling hemp products at Canvas Boutique and Dispensary in Maplewood, in the 7100 block of Manchester.
Many of her products contain CBD — or Cannabidiol; it comes from the hemp plant, a close relative to marijuana. Both plants contain Cannabinoids, but marijuana is high THC, while hemp is rich in CBD.
“Business has been awesome. We have so many repeat customers that have been getting a really great response just by helping the with pain and anxiety,” Kelly told KSDK.
She said she talked with the Maplewood mayor a year ago to tell him she’s interested in becoming a dispensary.
The application process starts in January 2019.
