Medical Cannabis Patient Center to Open in Duluth/Hermantown
The new Green Goods medical cannabis dispensary will provide certified patients with best-in-class plant-based medicines and patient service
MINNEAPOLIS – November 18, 2020 – Vireo Health of Minnesota, LLC (“Vireo” or “the Company”), a subsidiary of Vireo Health International, Inc. (CNSX: VREO, OTCQX: VREOF), today announced the official opening of a new medical cannabis patient center in Duluth/Hermantown. The new location, called Green Goods, is the first of four new cannabis patient centers the Company expects to open in Minnesota by the end of 2020.
Green Goods Duluth/Hermantown is located at 4900 Miller Trunk Highway, Hermantown, MN 55811 and will offer medical cannabis in a variety of consumption formats familiar to most patients, including soft gels capsules, oral solutions, tablets, and concentrated cannabis oils. Green Goods will also feature a ‘knowledge bar’ for patients seeking expert information and full time, onsite pharmacists to help guide patients through their medical cannabis journey.
A Minnesota-based company founded in 2014 by Minneapolis emergency physician Dr. Kyle Kingsley, Vireo is committed to helping Minnesotans who qualify for medical cannabis to better understand and gain access to safe, effective cannabis-based products.
“As a board-certified physician and lifelong Minnesotan, it is an honor to open the first medical cannabis patient center in the Duluth area,” said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Kyle Kingsley. “As the fourth-largest city in Minnesota, Duluth is severely underserved for medical cannabis patients, who currently have to drive hours to access this life-changing medicine. Green Goods will work to serve and educate both patients and the local communities on the positive impact of medical cannabis.”
Green Goods locations are designed to create an inviting atmosphere that provides personalized service and wellness programs for patients. The locations will also be used for community engagement events, charitable giving programs, and educational outreach efforts. The Company’s existing cannabis patient centers in Minneapolis, Bloomington, Rochester, and Moorhead were recently renovated to create a relaxing and engaging environment that helps streamline the process of purchasing medical cannabis products in order to help serve more patients in a timely fashion.
Vireo Health of Minnesota expects to open three more Green Goods locations in Minnesota this year, the new cannabis patient centers will be in Blaine, Burnsville, and Woodbury.
